Pesto Spaghetti

I know, I know. I said that I would be posting this recipe the very day after I posted my Pesto recipe – But sometimes, life just gets in the way!
Saturday was spent at my fiancĂ©’s mum’s house, with my fiance’s family. No laptops, barely any phone usage, simply spent relaxing in the garden and spending time together.

Love, hate and Doughnuts.

I’ve always had a little bit of a love-hate relationship with doughnuts….

I mean, on the one hand, they are sweet, sugary pillows of loveliness…

But then, on the other, they are deep fried, oily, and afterwards leave me feeling like a bloated leaden cloud of oil…
