The Weekly Report

Watching I’ve replaced my Masterchef consumption with Great British Menu. Arrested Development – it never gets old. Listening to Frank Turner, Metronomy, Little Roy, The Strokes, Black Keys, Black Ghosts, Woman’s Hour. Reading How to Deliver a TED Talk, lots of interesting stuff about careers here, and plenty of poetry. Writing Summer drinks recommendations and pizza party posts, plus pages and pages in my journal…

The Drinks Report: Summer days

Just like this week’s Food Report, I’ve decided to share a few of the things that I’ve been drinking this week. So, in no particular order… Once summer sets in, it’s never too long before I start to crave iced coffee. I’ve been making them at home, drinking them at work and unexpectedly picking them up…

The Food Report: Pizza party and Food Slam

Normally my Food Reports are on a theme, but I ate so much good food last week that I just wanted to share it all! First up, we went to Food Slam on Friday at Camp and Furnace. It was Light Night and we started with a Bollywood workshop and some singing before heading to…

The Drinks Report: Taylors Sweet Rhubarb Tea

Whilst I was at home last week I benefited from our endless supply of wonderful teas. I drank lots of old favourites, of course, but I did try some new ones including Taylors Sweet Rhubarb Tea. Having seen the gorgeous advert (I loved the Flower Fairies as a child!) and with the flavour highly recommended by…

The Food Report: Moose Coffee

On Sunday morning, after two nights of partying, it was definitely time for brunch. We decided to head along to Moose Coffee on Dale Street, considering we’d never been before. Despite having read some mixed reviews, it is always very busy so we decided there must be a reason for that. We did have to wait…

The Food Report: Picnicking

In a departure from our usual evening Nom Nom Clubs, this month we decided to go with a picnic. This was a slightly different style, with less of the communal cooking and chaos (although Olivia and I still got together for some of your preparations). Instead, we all arrived with our offerings, popped out some…

The Drinks Report: Fending off a Cold

This week I am under the weather. In many cases, quite literally, as Liverpool has decided to see out April with some very seasonal showers. But figuratively speaking, I’ve been coming down with something for a couple of weeks and over the last two days it’s really started to make me feel groggy, achy and…

The Food Report: Salty and Sweet

I have a bit of a problem. I am a serious lover of salty and sweet things. It is with great delight that I have observed the world get on board with this trend. I want it all: chocolate covered crisps, salted caramel anything, peanut butter and golden syrup sandwiches (that’s definitely one of my…

The Drinks Report: Twinings Green Tea

I’ve mentioned my love for green tea before. I’m on a quest for the perfect cup now. The perfect cup will probably come from a loose leaf, but for day-to-day I am currently enjoying the Twinings range. Mint green tea is essentially a gateway tea. Everyone loves mint tea (you don’t? Keep drinking it, everyone…

The Food Report: Triple pudding

A Sunday night meal at my Nanny’s usually means at least two delicious puddings to choose from (or rather say “yes, please” to both). Special occasions, though, call for extra sweet treats, especially with so many of us round the table. For Easter Sunday I found myself faced with three puddings. The first was hidden…
