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.’

The Beauty Bargain you need to know about today!
January 7, 2017
I am a fan of Boots No 7 beauty products – on the whole they work very well for my skin, so I was pleased to spot this gift pack in the Boots January sale called the No 7 Beautiful Skin Collection. Originally £14, it’s now half price at £7, which makes this a real bargain. It contains small size tubes and bottles of Radiance Exfoliator; Day Cream; Night Cream and Cleansing Lotion. But the main one to note is the full size bottle of Overnight Revitalising Eye Balm. The same size retails normally at £12, so if this is a product you’re likely to use, then the whole pack is an absolute steal. I’ve just bought two packs! My local Boots had stacks the other day, but only a few today, so get out quick to grab this while you can! Or I’ve just found it online. On a side note, they’re also doing a three for two on Boots No 7 beauty products in their usual price range at the moment and you’ve got one more day to use the £5 off beauty products and £3 off make-up vouchers they’re handing out at the till. (You’d have to work out if the three for two is better value as you can’t use both offers at the same time.) So there you are – just a very quick beauty tip I thought you might like to know about!
3 days in Oxford – Day 1. The story of the photographs
September 16, 2016
I was so excited about this little mini-break to Oxford. I love my family to bits, but sometimes it’s nice to be alone and have a little headspace all to yourself! I also find it difficult to relax at home because there’s always so much to do there. I don’t think it helps that I work from home either, so no matter if it’s the evening or weekend, I still always feel I should either be working or doing something towards fixing the house. I was also a little bit nervous because I’m not great at driving and get flustered easily, but the journey was good; I didn’t get lost once and made it to the park and ride with no problems following the sat nav!….
