  • This evening I popped over to Nandos to check out some of their new menu options. I have seen online that they have launched some new salads and bowls and wanted to see what all the hype was all about with them:  They each come with the choice of adding chicken or veggie ‘protein’ at an added cost. With added chicken, they come in at about the same price as a 1/4 chicken and 2 sides, and are cheaper than the burger or wrap options.  I have seen most of the hype on social media about the Caesar salad, but, …

  • I have been after a decent carpet cleaner for a while – we had new carpets fitted a few years back and whilst we keep on top of hoovering them and spot-stain removing where needed we haven’t ever given them a ‘deep clean’. We have a young toddler and cream rugs and carpets throughout the house – so whilst they look very clean and well looked after, I know how much spilt milk and grime must be lurking in there. So, a few months back I took the plunge to purchase the CarpetXpert deep cleaner by Shark, I bought it …

  • Tonight I decided to have a lazy evening and order some dinner in. Whilst browsing the Domino’s menu, I noticed they’ve now launched fries?! This is quite welcome as, many of the Domino’s deals are made up a pizza, sides and a drink for a discount – however, most of their classic sides (notably – their potato wedges) are not great.

So, I was looking forward to seeing how their fries compared – although I had very little …

I’ve listed a few tips for beginners below and if …

  • On the UK Mcdonald’s menu, there are 5 chicken burgers available, these are the McCrispy, McSpicy, McChicken Sandwich & Chicken Mayo (and the Bacon Chicken Mayo which is just the chicken mayo with bacon on it). There used to be a chicken burger called the ‘Chicken Legend’ which was actually my favourite thing on the McDonalds menu – but this was discontinued in 2022. If you miss the chicken legend though – here’s my recipe for a homemade one (it’s worth it!). But, back to Mcdonalds and those 5 burgers they do have. I’m always a bit unsure of which …
