We are always being told that we should eat less meat and more vegetables. If you are an old school carnivore like me then that doesn’t always come easy too you. I admit that I like nothing better than a nice big bit of meat for dinner but it’s not always good for us (or me) to have it and as we (all) get older it is often good to go meatless, not for every day but a day here and there of vegetarian meals and a day or two of fishy food and suddenly you’ll find you are only eating a meaty meal a couple of times a week. It sneaks up on you without even realising it.

The biggest plus point of meatless meals, like these two pesto recipes? They are really quick and easy to prepare – just right for a weeknight diner!

Best Easter Egg – ever!

Why did’t I get this for Hana and I?

Super large Easter egg

Was going through my Dropbox photo’s and saw this snap I took a few weeks ago when Hana and I were up in central London. Easter might have been yesterday but when i saw this I knew I had to share this picture of one of most gorgeous Easter egg displays ever. I just wish this was our Easter eggs yesterday. In fairness though we had some pretty cool eggs from Lindt and Lilly O’Briens.

Hope you are all having a good Easter Sunday. In my last post I mentioned I had been to a friend’s stag do last weekend and that I’d get around to sharing the great restaurant we went to for dinner, well here that post is. Disclaimer: this was a stag do, drinking was involved and the photos may not be the best.

We began the afternoon with a few rounds of karting at Team Sport in Edmonton, North London. It was a good afternoon hitting the track in a re-run of another friends stag do from many years ago. Back then I was pretty poor at racing, I put it down to being much heavier than just about everyone else and also being terrible at driving the kart. Well this time round I was smaller than before but it still didn’t make up for being abysmal at it. Never mind, it was still great fun and I’d really recommend getting a group together and heading down to give it a go.
