Meal Planning Monday

So I had a fantastic week last week. The Queen apparently will spend 8 days celebrating her birthday and I spent 6 last week and I still have one to come in July!! Not bad!

On Tuesday I went on the Cheese Lovers Tour at Cheese at Leadenhall. We got to try 10 cheeses between us along with bread, crackers, chutney and membrillo. We only realised that I hadn't taken a photo after we were over half way through, we were too bust scarfing down the cheese! We had a really good selection of cheeses and there were some definite favourites in there.

On Wednesday I met my sister and we went for cocktails at Barrio in Shoreditch. I had some kind of tropical cocktail, which the bartender set on fire!!

We then went round the corner to Blues Kitchen for dinner. We started with Crab Doughnuts to start with, which were absolutely delicious.

This was followed by burnt ends and smoked chicken. We both agreed that we liked the smoked chicken best. This was served with coleslaw and fries and we also had a side of spinach with almonds. 

For dessert we split an Alabama Mess, Salted caramel ice cream, blueberry coulis, marshmallows cookies and meringue. Topped with pecans & bourbon cream. It was immense and delicious!

On Thursday I went to Molly Bakes on Kingsland Road for a Freakshake! It was again amazing! Ice Cream Cookies Sandwich, Marshmallow, Cream, and Raspberry Milkshake.

On Saturday I went to Osterley Park in the morning and then I went back to Kua'Aina for those Mahi-Mahi Fishfingers. I loved these fishfingers, the texture is very different to normal fishfingers, it's more like swordfish. It came with fries and we had a side of onion rings. Yum!

We then walked to Cutter and Squidge and I had a coke float and a slice of Blueberry Dreamcake. The cake was so moist.

On Sunday I met some friends and we went to Saporitalia on Portobello Road for lunch. I had the Capriciosa Pizza, which was really good. 

It was definitely a very foodie week!

This week is somewhat restful! Only two weeks until the end of term! Pilates tonight, theatre tomorrow and Wednesday, then a rest, although I think I am dancing on Saturday again.
