Earlier today I was fortunate to have my mid-century modern cushion covers featured on the etsy front page, via a lovely treasury from sweetharvey . You can see the cushion covers here, and the original treasury here.

Yesterday we visited Wimpole Estate, in Cambridgeshire. The hall has far reaching views across the countryside, and is beautiful inside, with a striking yellow drawing room designed by Sir John Soane. The gardens are meandering with plenty of space to explore, and there is also a rare breeds farm on the estate.

This is a really tasty light lunch, or would also work well with fish.
Roasted vegetable and lemon couscous (serves 4):
1 yellow pepper
1 red pepper
2 cloves garlic
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 190C. Cut peppers and courgettes into 1 inch pieces and slice the onion. Put into a roasting tray with the crushed garlic and a couple of tablespoons of oil. Season, and roast for 30 minutes. Cook couscous in bowl with boiling water and 1 tablespoon oil. Fluff up couscous with a fork, add the vegetables and combine. Add juice of the lemon and more oil if needed. Season to taste.

On Saturday, I baked brownies using a recipe from "River Cottage Everyday". They were delicious! I didn't have any beetroot so I opted for the classic option instead, and increased caster sugar to 275g and reduced flour to 125g. I love the other recipes in the book too, definitely worth buying!
