Take 5

My top five ingredients for a lovely lazy Saturday would have to be:
Spending the day here
The Sanctuary Spa in Covent Garden. Total bliss. 100% relaxation and an equal amount of pampering. Nothing less than all us stressed out scrappers deserve!
After being buffed and polished and massaged to perfection, home to a nice chilled glass of :
I never used to drink red wine much but over the years I have discovered that I do in fact quite like it! A nice glass of Montepulciano goes down very nicely but my favourite white wine at the moment is Torres Vina Esmeralda. On offer at our local Waitrose at the moment, don't just take my word for it - give it a whirl!
OK, so my body is relaxed and I am unwinding nicely, time to switch on the tv and watch
Strictly Come Dancing ! Hard to say who my favourite is yet, but most of the celebs I wasn't keen on have gone now. I'm still finding it hard to believe that Ali and Brian were in the dance off ... but I digress.
Of course while I am chilling and relaxing and applauding Natalie and Vincent, drooling over Ricky Whittle's six pack etc etc my darling husband will be slaving away in the kitchen, maybe having taken advantage of a nice M&S dinner offer
Lamb. Of all the meats, lamb is my absolute favourite. And don't try and make me feel guilty by making me think about those fluffy white sheep gamboling around in the fields. I just love Lamb. If we go out for a meal and lamb is on the menu, DH raises his eyebrows and says 'no need to ask what you will be choosing'. Predictable? Moi?
So how best to round off this day? Anyone who knows me will know that one ingredient is missing - chocolate. So I think we need to get out a big box of chocolates from Hotel Chocolat.

Has everyone tried Hotel Chocolat? What? How can you not have? They are the best chocolates ever. Check out their website now ! This has been a GOOD prompt Shimelle, I've enjoyed making my list and mentally working my way through it, time to put it into reality I think!

Great list! It's funny I was always a confirmed red wine drinker, but I've been enjoying whites more and more lately (pinot grigio, for example).

Totally with you on 3 of them, but would have to swap the wine for Pina Colada or Bacardi and the chocs for - er do they do white chocs ? might have to checkout the website to see if they do white ones :-))
