My Week in Pictures Nov. 20
Another week has come and gone, and I’m definitely feeling that this week has seen us move from lovely autumnal days to crisp bloody freezing winter. I don’t mind though, because I have spent my week bundled up in hats and scarves which is absolutely my favorite style statement.
This has been a mega fun food week for me – I went to check out newly opened Villiers & Co wine bar on Tuesday night for wine and cheese with my friend Liberty which I loved.
And, as if one date night in a week with Lib wasn’t treat enough, we then hit up Ox and Finch on Thursday night for some delicious food and a cheeky bottle of Champagne. All the food was spectacular but special mention has to go to the fried squid which was just devine, I would go as far as saying best fried squid I have ever had.
Feeling bad that I perhaps hadn’t seen MrG that much this week, I took him along with me to the Blythswood on Friday night for some mega delicious food. I always love to visit this gorgeous 5 star hotel, because it never fails to make me feel mega luxurious and glamourous – and this visit was no exception.
I have to tell you guys what I had because honestly it was so good!
We kicked off the night with a little amuse bouche of pigeon breast, which was rich and super gamey. Next up, I went for the scallops & confit boneless chicken wings which was just as flavourful and heavenly as it sounds.
Then since it was a chilly and wet night, I couldn’t look past the autumnal sounding seared loin of Highland venison. This came served with a smooth creamy cauliflower puree, and the nicest roasted cauliflower ever….you know why this is the nicest cauliflower ever? Because I don’t even like the stuff, but I wolfed this roasted version down.
And as if all this wasn’t enough, I then saw the magic words – Peanut Butter Cheesecake, and my fate was sealed. It was light, nutty, buttery and just fecking awesome!
Such a delicious dinner!
So, that is my tasty food-heavy week all summed up. All that is left to tell you guys is that I have made a big decision on a new feature I am bringing to the blog, which I think you guys will love…..Keep an eye on the blog tomorrow for the big announcement.
I hope you had a great week, and I will catch you next Sunday team.x
