Sunday | Fresh Air | Banana Nut Muffins


Sunday. My favourite day of the week. Almost every Sunday the three of us go for a walk around a nearby lake. On cold days we stop at Costa for a takeaway coffee to warm up our hands and our insides.

Today’s walk was lovely, a perfect mixture of sunshine and coldness. We are approaching my favourite season as well. I love the colours of Spring.


Once home from our walk we tucked in to tomato soup with fresh white bread for dunking. Charlie loved it, as we could tell from the red smears that covered the entire bottom half of his face.

Once Charlie was down for his afternoon nap, I went in to the kitchen and whipped up some delicious, dairy-free banana nut muffins (an Annabel Karmel recipe). I made 12 muffins. Perfect for breakfasts this week, and a lovely little snack with a coffee.
