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

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(!)…..
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them review (no spoilers)
November 20, 2016
This is just a quick extra post because I went to watch this film last night and thought it was absolutely fantastic! As Harry Potter fans, we were very excited in this household and the kids and I dressed up for the occasion in 1920’s style outfits! We ate a meal first at the Frankie & Benny’s opposite the Cineworld cinema in Yeovil (which, by the way is hugely improved from last time we went there – I think they’ve employed new kitchen staff) and sneaked pudding, in the form of chocolate buttons, in my bag into Screen eight!….
