Foodie Friday - a Pop-Up Brunch in Hove

Organic almonds had been soaked in water for 24 hours, before they were blitzed in a nutribullet with fresh water, turmeric, cardamom and dates. Then, they were strained through fine muslin to create an almond milk that was destined for our goody bags.

Days Out in London - the Tudors at Hampton Court Palace

It may have been a while ago that Hampton Court Palace extended their Tudor offering with more rooms and a new garden to explore, but it was new to me and my family and maybe will be to you too.

Anyhow, this is what we discovered on a winter's day out when we visited the rooms in the Tudor part of the palace.

Foodie Friday - funky hot dogs in the Dog Haus

This is gonna get messy. That was our first thought when our big fat hot dogs arrived generously covered in toppings. Each came served on a brioche bun and on the side we'd gone for a serving of seaside chips, with a beer and cocktail to wash it all down.
