Low Point of the Week: Not on holiday yet!

Drivel of the Week:
Winning Our 5 Great Taste Awards last week meant that we spent the weekend celebrating! Back to reality on Monday though. And this week despite feeling on an incredible high following such an exciting win, I can’t help thinking about summer holidays.
I don’t know about you but one of the things I love most about holidays is being somewhere different, shopping somewhere inspiring and throwing together all sorts of different meals without a recipe book in sight! A sort of holiday version of ‘Ready Steady Cook’! However, self catering holidays do take a little bit of planning and not every meal can be a culinary delight of local produce so I have put together the Scarlett & Mustard version of Top Tips for Self Catering Holidays! Unless you are a true domestic goddess (which of course is a total fantasy) and relish the thought of creating three fantastic meals a day, a box or even a hamper of our lovely jars might help out on the days when you don’t feel inspired and would really rather just lay by the pool all day with your book! And to be honest that might be most days!
So Scarlett & Mustard’s Top Tips for Self Catering Holidays are:
Do not be without a jar of our Chilli Jam – perfect for making dips!
Take a bottle of one of our dressings – our Auntie Frog’s Lime & Chilli Dressing is great for marinading halloumi or works just as well as a dip on it’s own. Also a great salad dressing!
Pack a couple of our Salsas – eat with nachos, tacos, tortillas, crisps, wraps – in fact the whole enchilada!
Don’t forget a couple of bottles of our oils – the Dill and Basil Oils are my favourites this summer
And take a few of our yummy Curds – great with pancakes, waffles, crumpets, smoothies, milkshakes, ice-cream toppings – the list is endless!
And if you need a little foodie inspiration to read by the pool why not pack the Suffolk Cook Book
