Hey lovelies, how’s it going? I’m so sorry I’ve been super quiet on social media recently. I’ve just started a new job and I get no signal in my building (unless I stand right in the corner looking like a twat!) The good news is that I absolutely love my job; it’s keeping me super busy so the days go really quickly!!
I have a “not so secret” secret. I’m a habitual snacker, especially when I’m at work. I start off doing really well and not succumbing to the 11am biscuit. I dutifully drink loads of water and clap myself on the back for doing so well. I eat my somewhat healthy lunch and usually save a clementine for that 3pm slump.
Down on Ship Street in Brighton there used be a place called The Smugglers; a sports pub with a nightclub above, aptly named The Loft, and 10 Below, a slightly smaller club below the main pub.
It closed down in 2015 and has now been reborn as The Walrus. I was invited to their VIP lunch to check out the new venue and sample some of the menu. Naturally, I took J with me 🙂
So this is going to be one of the easiest recipes you’re ever going to make. Seriously. It takes less than 15 minutes, and pretty much all of that is just waiting for the spaghetti to cook!!
I was kindly given VIP tickets to attend the Foodies Festival over the May Bank Holiday weekend, so naturally I took my Brighton bestie, Rachael, with me. We headed down on the Sunday, even though we knew it was going to rain that afternoon.
Lemon meringue pie is one of my favourite desserts and always reminds me of Sundays spent at my parents’ house having a roast with pudding after. My mum always used to make different puddings every week; I loved her cherry pie and treacle tart too!
Held on Hove Lawns (in East Sussex) from Saturday 29 April to Monday 1 May (bank holiday), the Foodies Festival is back and it’s been billed as the biggest food festival in the UK. I’m giving my lovely readers the chance to win one of 5 pairs of tickets for the weekend (yup, the whole three days!).
I’m sorry Hols, it’s all about what now? Well, if you’ve never heard of them before, Goupie (pronounced the same as goopy) are chocolatey, chewy, triangly pieces of heaven which recently landed on my doorstep.
For years I’ve been saying that a lot of people just don’t know how (or can’t be bothered) to cook anymore and it’s bloody terrifying. I did a food technology GCSE and instead of learning basic skills like different ways to make eggs or how to cook different meats, (you know all the important life skills), we spent hours learning about how a microwave works. Yeah thanks education, that really came in handy.
I’m back with my first recipe post of 2017 and I have to say, it’s a blimmin’ delish fish dish. (I’m not even sorry … Well okay, maybe a little bit. I feel ever so slightly ashamed)
I do love a nice fish pie, especially on a cold winter’s evening, and with a nice bit of garlic bread on the side! I like to make this on a Saturday evening so we can have leftovers on Sunday and I don’t have to cook again #resourceful #lazy
