Foodie bits and bobs I didn't write about in June.
June was the last month to enter to win tickets to this event. I kept on going every Friday. It's been interesting looking back over the photos. I've realised that I always want a treat on a Friday- something streetfood inspired, even if I am too tired to go out and buy the real thing.
Stand outs this month were BBQ chicken and pineapple quesadillas...
...and a chicken and parma ham pizza made with a Northern Dough Company base.
Since Deliveroo started delivering in Birmingham, I've become a bit addicted. Food cooked at your favourite restaurant and delivered to your door...What more could you need?
So far I've tried out deliveries from Dirty Cow Burger, Amantia, Chung Ying Central and (just yesterday) Gourmet Burger Kitchen. All have been delivered quickly, still hot and held together well in the packaging.
This Dirty Cow burger which contained FRAZZLES crisps was an amazing hangover cure.
I love the tapas at Amantia and having it delivered is even better. It was nice to have a takeaway that wasn't too ridiculously unhealthy either (ignore the oil, cheese, deep fried food....) Look there's salad on the plate...!
I did do some cooking too. I baked this delicious coffee and walnut cake for my Dad for Fathers Day. The topping is cream cheese and brown sugar.
I cooked sticky honey and chilli chicken with rice, spring onions and sesame seeds and it was a real mid-week treat.
The mango and leaves make this salad look healthy but there was also quite a lot of cheese!
But sometimes only Liptons Ice Tea will do!
