Oooh road trip!

After a hectic week, tomorrow we are off on a road trip with Mr Lovely. It’s been ages since we hit the open road.

We must confess that our road trips normally involve a stop off at a certain ubiquitous fast food ‘restaurant’…you know the one we mean – tastes good at the time, but not so nice half an hour later. Anyway, not this time. Today the lovely co. has whipped up a yummy batch of savoury muffins to take on the journey. It’s good to know each and every ingredient that went into them!

Not only would these be great for the road, but they would also be delicious for brunch. As always, please let us know if you have a go at making them.

Have a lovely weekend. X.
