Waking up after a night of reviewing not one, but two restaurants for dinner I was surprised (surprised in the sense of ‘what is wrong with my gargantuan appetite’ rather than it being unusual. It’s not) to find my stomach rumbling and ready for another day of tasty discoveries. Today I was heading South of The Thames in search of what you know to be some of my favourite varieties of food: pub grub.
Now I know that I’m a greedy guts, but I outdid myself recently reviewing not one, but two restaurants in one evening. Q and I spent the weekend in London after the metaphorical blogging buses had came at once and I (and my stomach) were called to the Capital to check out some new food experiences to share with you.
How long does it take to achieve burger domination? 10 years, apparently.
It’s a term used as a badge of honour by restaurants. A suggestion that what you’ve been eating before you stepped through their doors was artificial, modified rubbish, Westernised for the masses.
It’s not until you get your legs out for the first time in the year that you realise just how very, very long you have endured gloomy British weather, huh? Yep, the reflective properties of my legs in the picture above say it all: I am absolutely due some sunshine.
I know that I don’t do badly for eating out regularly but honestly I wish I could do it even more. I’m one of those people who stares blankly when someone says they get sick of restaurants on holiday. (Why do so many people say that?)
You may remember me raving about The Anchor during the Winter, which I’ve visited a couple of times since reviewing and has become a real favourite of mine amid the stiff competition for quality pubs in Buckinghamshire. Epic Pubs, the group behind The Anchor, have just added a new place to their portfolio, which they invited me to come and try once it had opened.
I’ve recently started a regular slot on my local radio station, talking about all things delicious in my home town Milton Keynes. My very first session (which I was so nervous for but it turned out to be a blast!) fell conveniently in the same week as the celebrations of the city’s 50th birthday. It felt fitting therefore to do an overview of the food on offer and speak about my favourite restaurants in Milton Keynes.
Isn’t it amazing when hard work pays off? January has been a tough month for this food blogger: setting myself a goal to eat ultra healthy, train more and get myself in better shape for my wedding dress appointment at the end of the month to take my measurements.
Well I only went and bloody did it! Hellooo size 10 dress! It’s been tough, postponing reviews, turning down event invites… Yep, it’s safe to say once that appointment was done I was ready to celebrate and indulge a little.
