7 Days of Food & More… #10

7 Days of Food & More… #10

This week has been jam packed which made it feel like it went on forever, but also whizzed by, that makes sense right? I’m off for brunch with fellow foodie bloggers this morning and then Josh and I are having a big ‘let’s get our lives together’ day. Plus our TV has broken so we have to deal with that too, adult life sucks. Anyway, let’s get on with it, a lot has happened this past week…

The littlest Scott Sister started big school this week, she’s the youngest of 5 siblings which is probably why I got a little emosh when I saw the photos of her looking bloody adorable in her school uniform. Rubie, the 2nd eldest Scott Sister, passed her driving theory this week, go on girl!!!

We got a cook book through the post full of baking recipes. Josh and I have been together 1.5 years on Tuesday so I’m cooking a three course meal for us and I’ll definitely be trying a recipe from here for dessert.

Josh turned 27 on Wednesday! I was definitely more excited than he was about it and had been planning the day for ages. We headed down to The Chilli Pickle in the afternoon which is one of our favourite Brighton restaurants and were kindly given a tour of their kitchen, chatted with the Tandoori Master, learnt how they create the menu and watched how they make bread in the Tandoor. It was so much fun!

In the evening we got dolled up and hopped on the train to London for dinner at The Savoy Grill. By now you know our love for Gordon Ramsay and eating in one of his restaurants has been a goal of ours for ages, plus we get to tick eating in a Michelin star restaurant off our bucket list. For starters Josh had foie gras and I went for the snails (both delicious, but the snails were our favourite) and for mains Josh had a steak & ale pudding and I went for the rabbit leg stuffed with foie gras. The food, setting and service were amazing and it was so worth the price tag.

Saturday morning we got up early and headed down to the Fiery Foods Festival. We obviously ate a lot of spicy things, our favourites being some chilli infused oils and we got a lot of Christmas present ideas from some of the stalls. Most of the people manning the stalls were the same people actually making the products being sold so it was really interesting hearing how some things were made and their inspirations for them. We’ll be writing a full post about it soon so keep an eye out.

In the afternoon we went out to Burgess Hill with Josh’s family and went blackberry foraging with Josh’s parents and their dog George. We’re really excited to do a recipe with them and some apples from his parents apple tree!

It was then time to head back to the house for a delicious roast dinner and then birthday cake! This cake was made by Lawley’s Bakery and I recommend her highly, check out the last cake I tried of hers. This cake is 4 layers with 2 vanilla sponge layers and 2 chocolate layers with peanut buttercream topped with daim bars, lion bars, snickers & reeces pieces. It was, obviously, amazing!

After a pretty hectic week we’re happy to have no plans for next weekend so we can chill out before we head to Spain the following weekend for my mums wedding… eeek!!
