15 Bonfire Night Treats for Kids… or Grown Ups!

Activities/ Autumn/ Bonfire Night/ Food & Drink/ Recipe

I love Bonfire Night, there is nothing better than getting wrapped up and going out to the local bonfire & fireworks display with the kids. I have such happy memories of bonfire night when I was little, it was always such a treat and I want my children to have the same happy memories that I do. Bonfire toffee was always something mum used to make for us to take with us to the local display and I always remember there being hotdogs and delicious jacket potatoes too.

10 Delicious Curry Recipes

Blogtober18/ Food & Drink/ Recipe

During October I am taking part in #Blogtober18, where I write a blog post everyday for the whole month. Mandi over at Big Family Organised Chaos is hosting a linky each day where she also gives a prompt for us to write about. Today’s prompt is ‘Vindaloo or Korma?’ and I will have to say definitely Korma… although I’d never go for a Vindaloo or Korma if I was eating at an Indian restaurant, my choice would always be Chicken Tikka. In fact I took James out for a curry for his birthday a few weeks ago and we had the best curry of our lives at MemSaab in Nottingham. It was amazing! It’s making me drool just thinking about it and I cannot wait to go back. Read more

Son of Steak Nottingham Review

eating out/ Food & Drink/ Review

Last Friday we headed to Son of Steak in Nottingham. I’ve been wanting to visit ever since it opened last year, we did try last September but we couldn’t get a table as it was too busy when we went. Son of Steak is on Trinity Square in the centre of Nottingham making it the perfect location if you are shopping, at the cinema or on a night out. There is seating both indoors and outdoors and the whole place has a lovely relaxed vibe. Once inside we were greeted by the very friendly staff and seated at our table and given menus and asked to order at the counter. Read more
