The #ShineWalk Sights of London

Beautiful images

But I Smile Anyway...

Last week I gave you an update on how we did at the Cancer Research UK #ShineWalk.

It was a surreal experience, and I am so glad we managed to complete the half marathon!

Now, being in London meant that even though it was raining, there were plenty of amazing sights we wandered past, and London sure is beautiful by night, wet or not!

I promised I would share the images, so here they are! Courtesy of my Huawei Pro P20 phone!

You can see the iconic Shard, St Paul’s Cathedral, the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, and a few other places!

And here are a few images of different things we saw, en route.

Love a bit of graffiti, and Jack the Clipper? Perfect! I think I need to visit The Clink in the daylight!

But one of my favourite images is this. No filter used either!

When Life Gives You Lemons…

I love lemons too… a cold Corona and a wedge of lemon…. bliss

EJLICIOUS - quick tasty dinner ideas


Lemon-Basil Chicken

When life gives you lemons, you make Lemon-Basil Chicken of course! And maybe a lemon bundt cake or some lemon bars and of course lemonade to wash it down! Poor lemons, they get such a bad rap, they’re the iconic bad news messenger, the stormy threatening clouds on a sunny day, the wet blanket, the Eeyore from Winnie-The-Pooh. Well, I like lemons, they’re tart and jarring on their own, but paired with other sweet and rich flavors they’re wonderful. And like life if you didn’t have any lows you wouldn’t know the wonders of the highs! Well, this recipe is very delicious, matching the tart lemony flavor with smooth richness of butter and herbal notes from the basil. So give this dish a try it’s very tasty, healthy, and flavorful, its Ejlicious! Thank you for reading and I hope you have a great week! One last piece of advice…
