I’m taking part in an Instagram challenge called The 100 Day Project. It’s a celebration of making, and showing up day after day is the goal.
My challenge is to make a new (to me) recipe every day for 100 days. Today is day 24, and here are some of my new favourites –
Double Chocolate Cloud Cake (made in muffin cases) – A Modern Way to Eat
Roasted peppers – torn out of the Telegraph Magazine
Berry Smoothie – Deliciously Ella
Pizza – Honestly Healthy
Homemade Jaffa Cakes – Love your Lunchbox
Proper chilli – A Modern Way to Eat
I chose this challenge because I’ve been in a cooking rut for a while (years), making the same recipes in rotation. I think partly because we ‘only’ have an Aga. I realise that’s a nice problem to have, but it is a different way of cooking and we had a few disasters when we first moved here! I’ve found a few recipes that work, and stuck to them.
I’m finding the challenge really inspiring. It does take a bit of planning but it’s interesting the difference that adding a bit of thought and a few herbs or spices can make.
Mr D is always supportive of the things I do, but he’s been especially interested in this challenge. I asked him if he was enjoying it – “it’s b*****y brilliant” he said!
If you’d like to follow my progress, (and for other photos of life around here), I’m dottie_doodle on Instagram, or click here .
And do have a look at the other challenges at #the100dayproject. There is some amazing work out there – I’ll do a round up of some of my favourites next week.
