May 2012 Favourites List

Here is May's collection. For anyone who is new to this blog, my Monthly Favourites List is where I collect together all the things which have interested me over the course of the month. The recipes and food articles have already been shared with my friends & followers on the Snig's Kitchen Facebook page (which you will find here: The Facebook page is regularly updated with interesting recipes, food conversations and interesting things I've tripped up on.

This month's pictures are from Sri Lanka from my recent trip.

Recently Brian Milligan tried to live spending £1 a day on food (article on the BBC website). He cheated slightly, since I don't know of a shop which will allow you to buy 2 leaves of lettuce and 1 clove of garlic. He ended up spending £38 on the ingredients! But Jack Monroe has done the challenge for real. Read all about it!
