Walnut and fig breadsticks

No time to even have a proper shower.

I know this is what I usually say but it’s getting worse as, among mine and others things to do and places to go I always return home late in the evening, with the need to think about dinner and nothing in the fridge.

I would love to say “when I will have time I will write more” but to be honest the more we go on the worse it’s getting so I quit with good purposes and give you my recipes rude & nude.

This is the only way too keep the English version of the blog alive.

The recipe of those walnut and fig breadsticks is from Paul Hollywood: I know I’m becoming monotonous, I will take some recipes from someone else too soon, meanwhile enjoy them, perfect with a good cheeseboard.

By the way: really sorry for the photos but I just took some pictures with mobile minutes before serving, I was on a hurry!
