Having a nice chilled Sunday night after an absolutely awesome weekend.
On Friday I was out in Edinburgh with some work friends for some real ales, gins and cocktails. Great wee day and the sun was shining. We had some immense pulled pork nachos in The Hanging Bat, a bar on Lothian Road specialising in beers on tap and gins. Then we headed down to Dragonfly for a good few Espresso Martinis…yum!!
Yesterday I was like a kid at Christmas as my 2 best friends and I were going to see The Eagles which was my birthday present from them. They didn’t disappoint and are easily the best performance I have ever seen live, that’s twice I’ve seen them now. The Hydro is an amazing venue, especially the sound.
I was tempted to give in to hangover munches today but instead decided on some nice stewed sausage and I’m so glad I did as it was lush! I browned an onion and some pork and apple sausages with an oxo cube and a heaped teaspoon of apple sauce and one of whole grain mustard. I covered with water and simmered for an hour before thickening with bisto gravy powder and serving with mash, cauliflower and carrots. I would make it this way again as the gravy was really tasty.
This weeks meal plan is:
Monday – Fish fingers
Tuesday – chilli & prawn linguini
Wednesday – leftovers
Thursday – chicken stirfry

I’ll be linking up with Mrs M at Meal Planning Monday. Hope you all have a good week x
