I've been learning to cook for the last year, and doing a really good job if I say so myself! Over the year I've accumulated loads of recipes and cook books but always seem to stick to a certain number of recipes so I though on Thursday I'd try something new from each book or recipe card I get from Sainsburys and cheesily ended up calling it "new food Thursday". I hope to bring you a recipe idea each week (depending how busy I am with my new job!)
Today's is afternoon tea - lovely homemade rolls and fancy tea.
Homemade rolls are a real treat, and after spending time watching Great British Bake Off I wanted to try some real bread rolls. Having a week off, I managed to channel my housewife tendencies into making some!
The recipe I used was from BBC food

These rolls are SO good hot with butter, although we also had them later with slow cooked pulled pork (from this BBC Good Food recipe) and homemade healthy coleslaw made from red cabbage, red onion, carrot, apple, natural yogurt and vinegar.
I was sent some teas from Flint & Co to try out, I have The Daily Brew and Indian Spiced Chai. I haven't tried the Chai tea yet because mostly I'm a scardy cat, but also because I do love a standard cup of tea.
The tea bags are super-cute material meche pyramids with real tea leaves inside, very different to my normal PG Tips! The tea tastes delicious, they have a really lovely flavour and make a nice strong cup of tea
White rolls and a posh cup of tea - perfect afternoon tea
