BLUEBERRY AND LEMON POPABALL BURSTING BUBBLES FOR GIN!
Are you looking for something special to add to your gin?
Well you can add a spoonful of bubbles to your G&T, suck them and your drink up through the straw provided and bite to release their fruity flavour. In this case blueberry or lemon. You can get other flavours.
If added to your Gin and Tonic and it is super fizzy, you can watch the bubbles slowly dance their way to the top of your glass.
We love cherry season in our house. They are really expensive most of the year, but when in season they do become affordable. You can find them now on the shelves until mid September.
Mr B suffers from gout in his joints occasionally and was advised by his doctor to eat cherries to help prevent attacks. So they are a staple fruit in our house when in season. I love the sweet plump juicy cherry varieties.
Did you know that cherries are packed with vitamin C (100g provides 25% of the RDA of vitamin C), are a rich source of melatonin, which helps promote healthy sleep patterns, and have an abundance of antioxidants. Legend has it that you can trace the route of old Roman Roads in Britain by looking out for wild cherry trees. It has been suggested that Roman legions spat out the stones from the fruit as they marked through Britain.
Love Fresh Cherries have given us the challenge to let you know how we enjoy cherries in our house and when we enjoy them.
With the weather turning for the better now BBQ season is here. So outdoor eating with friends and family is the known thing to do. We have lots of wet cold weather here in the UK therefore every bit of sun we get we appreciate it. As well as your usual BBQ food like burgers and sausages, we like to do salads and fajitas also. When we were asked to try out the new gluten free fajita kits from Old El Paso, I thought it would be ideal to see what they are like before we get our BBQ out and invite friends around.
*This is a guest post from Petra Kravos a healthy lifestyle blogger over at Be Healthy Now on what healthy foods every kitchen needs.
I’m sure there are a lot of families out there who want to start eating healthier but have no idea where to begin. It’s a lot easier said than done especially because family life can be really busy and hectic. But it is possible, you just need to start buying the right kind of foods which you can use for creating quick and healthy meals from scratch.
Are you wondering what those foods are? Here is what you should consider stocking up on:
- Porridge Oats
Oats are a nutritious and fantastic way to start the day – a gluten-free whole grain with a lot of vitamins, fibre, and minerals that fills you up.
Porridge oats are easy to make and are not only known to lower cholesterol levels but they can even improve your blood sugar control. Kids will also benefit from this breakfast staple, as it’s filling and will give them a ton of energy.
So for a healthy start of the day always have porridge oats in stock. I recommend that you add fruits and seeds to them to make them extra flavourful and nutritious.
Now that the summertime is finally here, it’s time to get out into the garden and have that much needed barbecue with the family. Having a barbecue on a sunny day is a great way to spend your summer and have fun with your family and friends. If you want to up your barbecue game this year and impress your guests, here’s how to host the perfect summer barbecue.
A great setup
The first thing you’ll need to consider when you are hosting a barbecue this summer is where you will sit. Make sure you have enough Garden Furniture for everyone who is visiting you, and also make sure that you leave enough room for the grill to fire up away from everyone. You can even ask your family to bring a chair with them if you don’t have enough!
As a family we love our crisps. Any crisps will do. From proper potato ones to the maize snacks. To be honest there isn’t really a flavour I’m not keen on. When we got asked to try out the new Fairfields Farm Heat & Eat™ crisps I was a little intrigued. Can you really heat up potato crisps? I know you can with the likes of Doritos tortilla style snacks but proper potato crisps?
This was a new one on me and one I was gladly to try out. Before we get onto what we thought of the Fairfield Farm crisps I want to share with you a little about them.
