This week has been such a foodie week with a few different trips out to restaurants in the week and a home-cooked meal on the Friday. I can’t believe as well that it’s my birthday next week – this year is just flying!
Here is everything I was loving last week!
Pen & Pencil
On Tuesday evening, I was invited to sample the menu at The Pen and Pencil in Manchester, so I took the chance to have a catch up with my best girl, Hannah. I’d seen her the weekend before, but we still had loads to catch up on and the food was great too.
Salon Success Dinner
I was very kindly invited to the Salon Success summer dinner on Wednesday evening at Grand Pacific, which has been a restaurant I wanted to try for the longest time. The food was incredible, and it was lovely to catch up with the team and some of my favourite blogging girls.
I took my Mum to The Alchemist in Alderley Edge on Thursday evening to sample some of their dishes they are doing in association with Foodinate, who provide a meal to a local person in need. We had a really lovely evening, and the staff were incredibly accommodating.
Home Cooked Fridays
I was working from home on Friday as I wasn’t feeling great, but it meant that I could prep things for dinner so we could have a nice home-cooked meal. I ended up making a Quorn chilli with homemade flatbreads, and it was delicious – if I do say so myself.
This weekend I spent at Parklife Festival which is held at Heaton Park in Manchester. I’ve not been for the past 3 years, but I used to go every year. I had such a great day with all my friends, day drinking and dancing and the weather was amazing for it too.
I wanted to do a special mention to my favourite band that I saw at Parklife Festival which was Confidence Man. It was my second time seeing them and they are just so incredible live. They were one of the first artists to perform on the Sunday and it set the day off on a high.
I caught a bit of the Soccer Aid match for UNICEF when I got home on Sunday evening and I really enjoyed it. I used to be massively into football and even had a season ticket to Manchester United but it’s been a while since I sat and watched a match and even better when it’s for charity. It got me excited for the World Cup too.
