Welcome to the Hearth and Soul Link Party where I’m hoping to encourage you to Make the Most of November despite the challenges we are all still facing. The United Kingdom is going back into lockdown on Thursday until at least 2 December. Only essential shops will be open, restaurants will be closed, and we will be unable to see our families again. It’s that last thing that has me the most upset. Our son and his partner are coming for a short visit this evening until tomorrow. I’m so grateful we will see them before the restrictions come into effect on Thursday.
How are things in your corner of the world?
The Hearth and Soul Link Party welcomes blog posts about anything that feeds the soul. Things that feed the soul may include (but are not limited to) recipes, decorating, crafts, family, home, DIY, organization, travel, book reviews, the arts and self improvement.
NB. Please only share blog posts. I’m sorry, but links to Facebook posts etc will be deleted.
What’s Been Happening
Although it wasn’t a surprise that we were going to have another lockdown, it was a shock, coming rather out of the blue yesterday. I’m grateful we had a night away in London last week. It was good to see the capital again, although of course there is very different atmosphere there, and it is much quieter than I ever remember seeing it.
Last week I looked ahead to Stir Up Sunday, coming up towards the end of November.
I also shared a couple of healthier recipes, before we head into the holiday season and lots of treats.
You can use frozen blueberries to make this Blueberry Chia Muffins with Lemon and Ginger. They are a lovely way to start to the day.
If you are a fan of seafood, you will love this easy main dish.
My Salmon and Broccoli Stir Fry is full of healthy ingredients but is still really delicious – and there’s a gluten free option too!
Thank you so much to you all for sharing your wonderful content.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to rush out to buy evaporated milk because I forgot I needed it for pumpkin pie. I was really excited to read Kathi of Oak Hill Homestead’s post on How to Make Pumpkin Pie without Evaporated Milk.
Miz Helen of Miz Helen’s Country Cottage shared a delicious recipe for Slow Cooker Spicy Orange Pork Loin. I’m looking forward to giving this a try – the slow cooker is really coming in handy with my husband and I both working at home.
On with the party!
