Bacon and Mushroom Tagliatelle

From the Sainsburys Be Good To Yourself Range. 99p
I’m writing this review because about twice in the last year I have bought a microwave meal, and twice it has been this one; and I don’t want to forget what I thought of it, so I don’t buy it again. On the packet it says “tagliatelle in a creamy bacon and mushroom sauce. less than 3% fat.” Sounds delicious doesn’t it? Well it fails to say ‘50% pepper’. It even smelt delicious, but I couldn’t eat it (and I rarely can’t eat something!) because it had something in it that tasted horrible. I think it was pepper, and I’ve just read the ingrediants and pepper comes before the actual tagliatelle pasta in the list; so that does explain it if it’s in quantity order.

So as you can guess, I do not recommend this meal! Also, if you’re buying it as part of a diet, you can forget it because it has 49.2 grams of carbohydrate and 10.6 grams fo that is sugars. And I don’t know where the less than 3% fat on the cover came from, because the small print says it has 9 grams of fat in it. I’m sure there’s a trading standards issue there. Or maybe somewhere on the packet in even smaller print it says ‘the grams of fat referred to the top of the packet applies only when three quarters of the meal is thrown away.’

Bedroom renovating part 1 – Making a reclaimed rustic wooden headboard
October 22, 2016
I watched back the September Favourites You Tube video I made, and I don’t think my tone of voice was sarcastic enough when I said that next time I’d be in the bedroom with a white headboard with fairy-lights and a vase of flowers and candle in the background! (This seems to be the setting of 99% of monthly favourites You Tube videos.) When I made that video we had no headboard at all; flaky plaster; holes in the ceiling and a lot of mess. Last weekend though, we got busy in the bedroom(!)…..
Negotiating lipstick with piercings and a wonky mouth!
March 3, 2017
I have never really worn lipstick. In my mind, it just hasn’t suited me – I have a very thin top lip and and a very fat bottom lip and overall my mouth is very lop-sided. I could happily go on being self-critical, but I won’t! I also think part of the problem is I was trying the wrong colours – brown was very much the fashion in the ’90s when I was playing around with make-up, and although I never really thought lipstick fashions were a thing, I have noticed that brown lipsticks are back….
Adagio teas
Tea for people who don’t like tea! (And for those who do.)
October 3, 2018
When Adagio Teas asked if I’d like to work with them, I had to be honest in my reply; that I don’t actually like tea. On my trips to America, this is like saying I’m not actually British, but my main disgruntle is that I couldn’t join in with all the beautiful Instagrams of cups of tea! I do, however like fruit infusions, and the mango flavoured tea I had at the Jane Austen Centre a couple of weeks ago was very nice, so I asked if I could try their flavoured tea….
Painting my gong copper
October 27, 2016
You probably won’t find another blog post with the same title as this one! But that’s literally what this post is about. I have childhood memories of a place called Foxlease in the New Forest where we’d sometimes have a little holiday. It was something to do with the fact that my Mum was a Guide leader. Anyway, it was a big old stately home and they had a huge dinner gong to tell everyone staying there that dinner was ready. Every evening they would take in turns letting the kids bang the gong. It never was my turn….
