Random Food I Have Eaten Recently

Egg noodles, beef strips and vegetables

There have been numerous times recently, in fact there are many weeks, where I either eat food from a generic chain that is not really worth doing a whole post on or my partner happens to have cooked the majority/all of the dish and therefore I cannot provide an accurate recipe. However, I love talking […]

Saucy Sausage, Croydon

When I first spotted the Saucy Sausage along Lower Addiscombe Road, Croydon I had to refrain from doing a childish giggle simply because of its name.
