Pulled Pumpkin from ‘How to Eat Brilliantly Every Day’

Abel and Cole have just published a new recipe book and it’s been lighting up all the right bits in my brain like a Christmas tree (too soon, I know, but I am who I am). ‘How to Eat Brilliantly Every Day’ is sectioned up into each of the four seasons and I’ve been pouring over the autumn and winter pages like they’re the answer to life, the universe and everything. For me to have cooked three recipes from one book in less than a month is a big deal. This never happens. I’m smitten for reals. The book is predominantly vegetarian – or at least, it’s always making the vegetable the star. This is the kind of forward thinking recipe development that I adore, and obviously is incredibly appropriate coming from Abel & Cole, everyone’s favourite veg box guys. There’s something so cosy and inviting about it, and it really is so rare for me to flick through a recipe book and earmark so many of the pages for future cooking. It’s absolutely chock …

Cheap Dates in Brighton | 2-4-1 Burgers at Little Blue Smokehouse @ The Southover

Update: heartbreakingly, Little Blue Smoke are no longer operating at The Southover, so this deal is no longer applicable – you can find them at Hare and Hounds! Brighton is fast becoming London 2.0, whether we like it or not. That means that date night is getting more expenive by the day, and it can be tricky to keep up. I’m all about a bargain, and I’ve made it my mission to find you the best deals in town so that you don’t have to bankrupt yourself to hang with your other half. The only rule is that the date can only cost a maximum of £10 per head, the rest is all to play for. I’ve featured Little Blue Smokehouse previously on this here corner of the internet back when I was all excited over their PB&J fries at their Seven Stars residence. They’re now a permanent fixture at The Southover, which is not quite as accessible if you’re coming in from out of town (it’s up in the residential area of Hanover) but …

Happy Sunday

I regret to inform you that you’re not getting the best of me today. I’m writing this, straight off the back of a 5 hour studying session, while my roast cooks. My brain is nothing short of fried. I don’t know if I’ve actually officially talked about it on the blog yet, but I’ve started studying for a TEFL qualification. For those that aren’t aware: TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language, which will enable me to teach English in foreign countries. It’s busting my balls. Once I pass, I think I’m going to write a little about my historic struggles with education and learning, because it’s gonna feel like a really huge achievement that I’ll probably want to talk more about and reflect on – but for now just trust me when I say this is the biggest thing I’ve pushed myself to do in years. I digress, we’re here to talk about the week that’s just been, and while it’s not been quite as exciting as some recently, we’ve still got more …
