Life is exciting, but it can get complicated trying to fit everything in! I’m thinking more and more about embracing simplicity these days. The features at this week’s Hearth and Soul Link Party reflect that. Welcome! At Hearth and Soul, blog posts old and new, about anything that feeds the soul, are welcome. This includes – but is not limited to – family, home, recipes, decorating, crafts, DIY, travel, organisation, book reviews, the arts and self improvement.
A Very British Summer
Can you believe we are half way through 2019 already? I’m excited that summer is on its way, and I’m looking forward to a busy and fun season in my life. The summer is a really interesting time in the UK, with Royal Ascot, The Henley Regatta, Wimbledon and more. It’s also a great time for embracing simplicity. I love enjoying simple salads for supper and easy, light and fruity desserts.
Last week I shared two recipes perfect for celebrating a very British summer, wherever you live!
Coronation Chicken is a vintage salad recipe with a Royal history, and a great story behind it. You can adjust the spicing to suit your family, and it is perfect for summer entertaining.
Round off your meal with a lighter version of a classic British summer dessert, Gooseberry Fool. This easy to make, creamy, sweet-tart dessert is a delicious treat, that you can make several hours ahead and keep in the fridge.
Speaking of British summer, Buckingham Palace has its summer opening coming up soon.
Don’t miss the lowdown on all the information you need to make the most of a visit to Buckingham Palace in 2019.
