Eating in good company

Eating in Good Company You may remember that I went away a couple of weeks ago, my first time away from Monkey overnight in 2 and half years.  I spent a wonderful 24 hours with a great group of friends and it was wonderful to be eating in good company.  We’d had lots of snacks to keep us going in the afternoon on the Saturday, and then we had a great selection of Pizza’s delivered by Domino’s for dinner.

I, of course, am a bit of a piglet when it comes to pizza, and I had to test each variety.  The topping were plentiful and I really liked the The Carolina – chicken strips with BBQ sauce (which wasn’t overpowering), smoked bacon, onions, tomatoes and drizzled with mustard mayo – yummy!  The other pizzas were just as good as our local deliveries.  I do like consistency.

For pudding!!  we had Chocolate Twisted Dough Balls – they didn’t touch the sides.  Eating in good company was great fun and we all enjoyed our evening meal.

I can’t actually remember the last time I had a good fry up for breakfast, something I do love, especially on a cold winter’s day.  So I was rather pleased to hear that we were heading to Frankie & Benny’s for breakfast.  In fact this was to be my first visit to Frankie & Benny’s and I would be eating in good company again – what more could I ask for.

For £5.00 I was very happy with my breakfast, and with the free tea refills.  In fact the Big Breakfast kept me full all day – so was certainly worth the money for me. Eating in good company was the perfect way to end the weekend with a great group of friends.

Thank you to Domino’s and Frankie & Benny’s for providing us with our dinner and breakfast, I’m quite glad I didn’t have to sing for my supper!

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.
