Stuffed Picnic Loaf for National Picnic Week

I can't believe it, I'm sure my eyes are deceiving me. We're actually seeing a little bit of sun up North!  The wonderful weather coincides perfectly with the guys at Unilever sending me a beautiful hamper bursting full of ingredients, with the challenge of using them to create a delicious and easy picnic recipe.  Petrified I was going to miss the sun, I decided to cobble something together from what I already had in my fridge before the clouds and drizzle descended once more.  With this in mind, this is one of the easiest and most forgiving recipes I have ever attempted, all you need is a loaf of bread and whatever you can get your greedy little mitts on. 

Here's what I did...

Stuffed Picnic Loaf

1 loaf of crusty bread
1 scraping of Bertolli
2 small rounds of mozzarella cheese
1 bag of washed rocket
Handful of basil leaves
4 roasted red peppers from a jar
250g Prosciutto
250g peppered salami
250g Italian speck
1 large tomato
Squirt of Colmans garlic and chilli mayo


Cut the top off your loaf and hollow out the insides.  Keep the leftover bread for breadcrumbs.  Spread the inside of the loaf with Bertolli and layer up your ingredients.  I started off with the parma ham, mayo, rocket, tomato, cheese, basil and repeated with the different meats and finishing with red peppers. 

Once you have finished layering your ingredients replace the lid on your loaf and wrap the whole thing tightly in cling film.  Place the loaf in the fridge and pop a heavy wooden chopping board on top.  This compresses the loaf and helps everything stay together when cutting.   Leave in the fridge for 8hrs before taking on an adventure.

This is such a forgiving recipe, you can change everything and anything with what you have available.  No mozzarella, use cheddar.  No Prosciutto, just use regular sliced ham.  The possibilities are endless.


Tin Can Planters

Things have been kinda quiet over here for the past few months.  Life has been super hectic with Pet Lamb taking priority and this little blog has fell by the wayside.  I do have some exciting news, I'm currently working on a new project, a new blog even, with my best friend and business partner Kay.  The lifestyle blog for Pet Lamb will be up and running in the coming weeks and I'll be spending most of my time posting over there with more of a lifestyle feel.  Don't worry, food will still take a priority but you'll be seeing more stuff like this... Hope you enjoy :)

If you're anything like me a beautiful tin can is something that can not be passed up.  Whether it be filled with food on a supermarket shelf or nestled among china cups and teapots in a junk shop window, I just have to have it.  My collection is growing ever larger so I'm constantly looking for new ways to put them to use.  One of my favorites just has to be tuning pretty old tins into beautiful planters for herbs and flowers!

This really couldn't be any easier, all you need is a hammer, a nail and your favorite tin cans.  Simply give your container a good wash out with soapy water and leave to dry.  Turn your can over so the bottom is facing upwards, using the hammer and nail pierce the base of the can in several places.  These will act as drainage holes so your roots don't rot away.  Fill your pot around half full with potting compost, make a hole large enough for your plant to fit and delicately place your chosen plant into the hole.  Cover with a little more compost and water, just enough to soak the roots.  Pop onto your windowsill and admire your handy work.
