The lovely Mr cooked a Chickpea and Chorizo salad last night - this recipe is gold (very quick and very tasty) so try it out.  Thank you to the wonderful Stone Soup!

2 chorizo (approx 200g or 7oz), sliced into coins
1 can chickpeas (400g or 14oz), drained
smoked paprika, optional
1 punnet cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 bunch flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped

Preheat a frying pan with 2 tablespoons olive oil on high.
Stir fry chorizo until nicely brown on both sides.
Stir through chickpeas & paprika and cook for another minute or 2.
Taste, season, and stir through tomato and parsley.

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Today I need to concentrate and write a briefing paper for my boss' boss.  Being in an open plan office it means putting on my headphones and turning on Spotify to listen to their Afternoon Acoustic playlist.  It's my go-to playlist and features this sweet little tune from John Mayer...
