Dinner planning, every week I struggle to think of new things to eat. This week I decided we needed some meat free days.  What we are eating for dinner this week is mostly veggie. It will be kicked off in style tonight at our local veggie supper club night. It is […]

What we are eating for dinner


Friendly fisheries is a little gem, this is a proper chippy, the fish and chips are fried in beef dripping and this shows in the flavour. There is no choice when it comes to fish, it is haddock or haddock. The fish is excellent, really tasty, crispy batter and a […]

Friendly Fisheries – Fish & Chip shop – Friendly


The Golden Fish in Mytholmroyd is a Chinese takeaway.  It is a pretty decent one too. The menu is huge, something for everyone. The English dishes are limited to omelettes, which in my opinion is not a bad thing. As the menu is so huge we have not tried everything, […]

When I heard that Wahaca were going to be selling soft taco kits in the supermarket I was very happy. We love the food in the restaurants and although we make pretty decent Mexican dishes at home, some of the ingredients, especially chillies have not proved easy to find. Plus […]
