A Flabulous Lunch review – The Eddy, Brighton

I know, I know, I’m still being too quiet on the blog front as we are just so darned busy but I had to share a review of the wonderful lunch we had at the Eddy (The Edinburgh Pub) in Brighton. I should preface this by saying this was an informal works lunch and we…

My blue cheese spiked Waldorf salad

I’ve had a hankering for Waldorf salad for a week now. I don’t know where it’s come from but I reckon as a lunchtime meal it’s a much better alternative, for me, to sarnies but it a little more filling than a plain old salad. But as usual I want more!! and in order to elevate…

Homemade Sushi Rocks!!

LIke many people I love sushi but have had a real mixed bag over the years, from divine to almost crunchy where its been in the fridge too long, but I’ve been inspired by one of the girls at work who showed me how easy it would be to fill my flabulous Black and Blum…

Lentil veggie soup….I love autumn!!

I’ve been having a culinary weekend as you know and the theme continued today as I wanted to keep the Dazzlers celebrations going with his favourite Lunch. Bless him he turned up with a chicken and huge amounts of carrots and broccoli yesterday but really wanted roast beef today so I snuck out this morning…

Bean Chili – Its not just for Veggies!!

I’m feeling the need of something comforting yet healthy this week as work has been all out. So I thought this weekend I would dedicate to making something I haven’t made for a couple of years but I used to LOVE – My Bean Goo – or bean chili to the uninitiated!! It’s a pretty…

My Flabulous New Lunchbox

Well as you know by now I’m trying to avoid sarnies and thought I’d give myself some inspiration and a treat by investing in a brand new all singing all dancing lunchbox…. It’s only a lunchbox I hear you cry!! Not at all. This baby from Black+Blum is the Rolls Royce of the lunchbox world….

Are Packet Pasta meals really that bad?

It was with horror that I returned home on Monday to find that the Dazzler had been shopping and that hed been listening when I said I wanted to avoid sarnies at lunch. His solution – was to buy a batch of Batchelors SUPER pasta N sauce. I’ll admit I haven’t had one of these…

My week of not eating sarnies…day five!!

Ok so it’s Friday, and to be honest it would have been mackerel pâté with salad and oatcakes BUT as we have a new joiner the boss is taking us out to lunch!! (Have I said I love where I work?) Well the mackerel pâté will have to wait till next week. All the ingredients…

My week of not eating sarnies…day four

It’s all about the leftovers today. A couple of nights ago we had bolognese and I made way more than we needed. Usually our dogs would benefit from this but this time I got to the pans first and squirrelled away another easy lunch. Now I gave myself an unofficial rule when I started this,…

My week of not eating sarnies….day three

I’m back on track(ish) with lunches today!! I woke up very late and was really worried that I might not have time but thanks to the power of leftovers I managed to cobble together my mums it’s not quite risotto!! All I did was use the leftover. Sticky Rice from Monday, add in a tin…
