See what we at the Dojo were loving in April
…brought to you by Nacho, the adorable
chocolate chihuahua and Dojo pet!
1. Game of Thrones
The tagline may be “Winter is coming”, but the return of this gripping TV show this Spring has chased my winter blues away! A definite must-see!
Which House do I back? The Starks, of course – everyone knows that wolves and dogs are canid cousins!!
2. Iron Man 3
I love Superhero films and Tony Stark (aha – another Stark!) is back with a vengeance in this the latest installment of the Iron Man franchise. Robert Downey Jr. is brilliant in this film! My one suggestion for Iron Man 4 is that Tony Stark needs a new sidekick (sorry Don Cheadle) – maybe a chocolate chihuahua or little monkey.
3. American-style Muffins
This portable meal fits in the palm of your hand (or between two paws for me), proving that good things really do come in small packages (like me). The muffin is the more sensible cousin to the cupcake as it is generally not as sweet and topped with icing, but it is just as fun and relevant. I usually find our British muffins…well, bit flat and boring… but these dome-shaped beauties can be chock-full of goodness, just by adding a few healthy ingredients! Some of my favourites are: blueberries, pumpkin, banana, seeds (pumpkin, chia, poppy), pecan and macadamia nuts, oatmeal and wheatgerm!
I will rustle up some recipes for you, but until then, head over to your nearest Le Pain Quotidien and try out their organic blueberry muffins – they are so good! And remember, the proper way to eat a muffin is to pop the top (dome) off and save it for last!
