mozzarella, peach, basil and parma ham salad

At the third time of trying this year we manage to find some peaches which are actually ripe. Hardly earth-shattering but with two large bags of basil cluttering the fridge, and a tray of Parma ham thanks to Unearthed's 2-for-1 meat offer, it means we can finally sit down to one of our favourite salads - mozzarella, peach, basil and parma ham.

Given the mere seconds it takes to knock together, it means I have plenty of time to hear about ana's new Bikini Blitz partner, who's a BEEFCAKE. So whilst I'm washing up, and cooking mozzarella till my fingers blister, she's high-fiving and chest bumping her new beefcakey friend. I blame Kendra, she's like her high class madam.

I realise now, I'm so far behind with this you've probably missed out on the saga of the unripe peaches, I shall remedy tout suite but in the interim I've managed to get some more back-dating done. I've also managed to suffer a catastrophic memory card failure, and despite using every recovery programme available, I've not saved much. Still here are the updates:
Slowly I'm getting there!

Food of the Milos
He's a hungry hippo today. A hale and hearty breakfast of half a marmite rice cake, dried apricots, cheerios and a baby bel, followed by a picnic of a ham sandwich, cheese, avocado, blueberries and the inevitable ice cream for lunch. For dinner he had last night's classic pasta and cherry tomato sauce for dinner, bish, bash and indeed bosh.

  1. I seem to recall you demanding more lemon juice and chilli flakes when you had it last year... Hmmm, it's been logged

  2. ooh this looks a tasty number indeed (said the beefcake to Mrs Barnes) I have some rather sad looking peaches in the fruitbowl and whilst I may have to get some mozzarella, this could well end up being our tea! I was wondering if you could tell us a bit more about your food likes / dislikes Russells. For example I'd like to know about the best ever meal you've cooked and worst meal plus the best meal but biggest pain in the arse to cook. I am interested in the oddest things.....

    PS - Please have Ana call me about the beefcake?
