Believe it or not, we are now well and truly into spring, and with that comes several new and updated restaurant menus. I was lucky enough to get invited, along with a guest, to try out Prezzo’s new spring menu a few weeks ago, and I have to say, we were pretty impressed.
Toad in the hole is a dish I very much associate with my childhood, however, in the recent years it sadly hasn’t featured much in my life. Not because I don’t love it anymore… I really do, but if I’m being totally honest, I had kind of forgotten about it. Well, until now that is. I know, I feel ashamed at myself for even muttering those words, but it’s true, up until this year these amazing sausage filled Yorkshire puds were very much at the back of my mind.
Now, I’ve never had the problem of having chocolate leftover from Easter, but I have heard that it is actually a thing and that some people look for alternative ways of using up their leftover eggs rather than just eating them normally. It all seems very strange to me, but nevertheless I thought I’d join in and get a little more inventive with my chocolate this Easter time.
Today is a sad, sad day. Creme Egg season has officially come to an end and soon they will exit our shops for another long and lonely nine months. The fact that Creme Eggs are not sold throughout the whole year is something that really does bother me. Who are Cadbury’s to tell me what I can and cannot eat through the year? I mean they’re not even made of real Cadbury’s chocolate any more! Nevertheless, I still love them.
A few days ago I sat down and wrote out a rather lengthy ‘comeback’ blog post for you all to read. I intended to post it explaining why I hadn’t been blogging recently, what I had learnt during my break and what I was planning on posting in the future months. I felt like I had to explain my absence to you all, but then just as I was about to hit publish it suddenly occurred to me that the world probably didn’t care about why I hadn’t been blogging. I mean to be honest, the world probably didn’t even really notice. So I thought to myself, what would people like to read about instead of my life story… and there was only one answer. Chorizo.
