Bella Italia: Not too crappy

Restaurant

   
About to see Deadpool!!! 😃 And as per our typical pre cinema routine we rock up at a local eatery, eat, drink and then watch! Today we went for Bella Italia!

  
We started with some seriously nommy cheesy garlic bread. This one was a  caramelized onion option and it was fought over by us both! It’s was super sweet, but super amazeballs! 

  Gav followed the starter with a beef and red wine pasta dish, I didn’t try it but have it on good authority that it was “nice”.

   

We of course shared some wine!!

   

I opted for pasta with shredded duck and a sweet Chinese sauce. It’s an odd combo I know, but I really enjoyed it.

 
And we shared some deep fried Courgette. I’ve never had these before but I sure as will again!

Overall, a decent meal and for £40….no complaints!

Cutest food day ever!!

Food

Aww man, seriously…..how cute are these snack pots?
  
I’m not really supposed to be spending mulah at the moment but I saw these yesterday (in the sale too!) and I couldn’t resist. Last night, in a terribly uncool way, I had great fun filling them with today’s breakfast and lunch!

  
Overnight maple and toffee oats for after the gym, and for lunch, rye crisp breads with cream cheese, tomatoes and relish.

A healthy day ready for a somewhat naughty movie night tonight!

Super duper super food!

Jamie’s Super Food book is a bit of an odd one for me, it offers some good recipies but few actually appeal. I mean, I will make them, you know I have this obsession with new recipies, and I’m sure I’ll enjoy them, but I lack lust for them. They are also more on the complex side and so not a “quick prep job” for when I get home.

Tonight I whipped up the Mexican soup. It was OK. It had a very fresh taste and would make a nice summer soup but to be honest, I’d skip the chickpeas next time!
