  1. Looks a lovely and delicious evening meal x

  3. Hi Emily
    I was just thinking that the shrimp must be good over pasta too! Sounds so flavourful!
    And I am so jealous of your homegrown arugula! :)

  4. Hi Emily,

    I like your yummy dinner minus the shrimps (because of my allergy :p) I remember this book... Jamie Oliver was so young!
