Happy Friday, friends! How has your week been?
These are the last couple of weeks photos since I shared my Christmas Dinner with Lidl instead last week. Last weekend I made some delicious Snickerdoodle (cinnamon) cupcakes for Cake Club! I’m sharing them with you on Monday – hurrah! They were really delicious – they tasted exactly like a cinnamon roll in cupcake form!
At Cake Club I had some delicious cakes! Jordan made a lemon meringue pie which was amazing, and I also sampled a pistachio and cranberry cake made with ground almonds instead of flour that was absolutely delicious too!
That day we also went to Missoula Montana for brunch. They are an American style restaurant and the menu had some interesting options – like red velvet waffles! Sadly they weren’t very red and they weren’t very velvety – it was just a vanilla waffle with some fruit on it (and it didn’t taste homemade). I am very disappointed. Would it be considered excessive to buy a waffle maker so I can make my own?
At the weekend I spied a new cafe that’s opened in Nottingham – Ugly Bread Bakery! They sell bread, sandwiches, and pizzas too! I went for lunch on tuesday with Erin and it’s an excellent spot for people watching!
We tried the ricotta and spinach pizza and the nutella and strawberry pizza. I ate a lot of pizza that day! They were really tasty, though not amazing. But really, you can’t say no to a nutella pizza can you?! They were also selling this 3KG tub of nutella! Oh my days.
It’s been really chilly in Nottingham this week – look at the frosty rooftops! I’ve been wrapping up warm but I haven’t been cycling – my bike has a puncture! I need to fix it this weekend, but I’m not really looking forward to cycling in the cold! Although the idea of it is far worse than the actuality.
On Wednesday my mum came to visit for the day and we went to the Royal Concert Hall to see jazz/soul singer Gregory Porter perform. His voice is so amazing!
We went into Nottingham for a bit of Christmas shopping first, and enjoyed some pizza at Das Kino! It is THE most delicious pizza – trust me, I eat a lot of pizza! If you’re in or close to Nottingham, you MUST go. And they give away a free pizza a week on their twitter, so tweet them and you might win one!
Today marks a whole year since we lost our amazing cat Marty. It feels so strange to have been without him for a whole year now. We miss him so much.
What are you up to this weekend? After a whole week of being sick, I’m hopefully going to convince Lee to leave the house for a festive day!
