We recently bought a new dining table and decided to have a little party to break out the table. I had my lovely sister in law, her mum and brothers and my grandmother over for dinner.

I’m a lucky girl, some nights I refuse to cook and Mangy is more than willing to step in. I have to admit some of his creations have been a little strange (he thinks he’s related to Jamie Oliver), but his latest was an absolute masterpiece! Continue reading Mangy’s Brussels Sprouts & Pistachios
