Photo-a-day 109: Dark chocolate and wasabi fudge cake

One of my Wagamama favourites… though I usually prefer the miniature version plus a macchiato!

Photo-a-day 95: On a Monday?!

After a busy set of weekend nights for Wendy, and a busy few days for me, we decided to go for a cheeky bit of cake tonight… even if it is only Monday!

Photo-a-day 189: Wendy’s greenhouse

Wendy went to her first ever cake decorating class today, and this is what she brought home (along with a huge smile!). I wouldn’t have guessed it was her first class from this alone! It looks pretty incredible to me, although the greenhouse had melted a little by the time I got the picture!

Photo-a-day 139: Fire engine

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that Wendy and I were evacuated from the Handmade Burger Company at the Metrocentre tonight after our meal was rudely interrupted by the restaurant setting on fire…!

One of the downsides of the open kitchen is that the flames were quite clearly visible. Initially, we were told to ignore them, as the gas had been turned off and they’d soon subside. But we were warned that our chips might be delayed.

As the flames persisted, the chef produced a fire extinguisher, which also failed to extinguish the flames.

We were reassured that everything was fine, even as the fire alarms were blaring… it was only when the sprinklers started that the staff decided the time was right for an evacuation… of the whole centre. We didn’t even get our chips!

The picture shows the fire engine that came to the rescue. There may have been more than one, but Wendy and I walked across to the McDonalds on the nearby retail park as soon as we were out – we were hungry!

I guess you could say that our whole evening was flame-grilled, not just out burgers!

Photo-a-day 113: Olive and Bean

Wendy, her mum, and I lunched in Olive and Bean today. Their paninis are delicious, and the service is always great too. If ever you’re looking for somewhere a bit different for a coffee or a sandwich in Newcastle, Olive and Bean comes highly recommended!

Photo-a-day 17: Ben’s Cookies

No trip to London is complete without stopping off here to pick up supplies for my girlfriend: there’s nothing she likes better than a milk chocolate Ben’s cookie, with extra big chocolate chunks!

Photo-a-day 12: Popcorn

Writing about popcorn this morning made me want some, so I walked down to Blockbuster this afternoon and picked up my entitlement!
