Lady Bug Says ... A Foody Post

Evening Ladies!

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend, mine has largely been food and dress making (so proud of myself, next post on this!) filled.

On Thursday one of the guys at work retired so we finished early and had a bbq :) Thankfully the rain stopped for the few hours we were outside! As has become a tradition at work whenever there is a special occasion, I bake cakes! Having seen this idea for Oreo Stuffed Cupcakes I knew I had to make them! They turned out even yummier than I imagined, biscuit and cake combined in one, whats not to like! I used my fool proof sponge recipe and sandwiched an Oreo cookie in between 2 dollops of cake mix. I finished them off with cream cheese icing but the recipe I used was really runny :S Anyone got a recipe for a less runny, more pipeable one?!

On Saturday the Mr and I went on our first date day :) We realised that since we bought our house we have spent the majority of our time together doing DIY/gardening/house stuff and hadn't actually done anything like go out for a meal or to the cinema just the 2 of us. So we are going to take it in turns to organise dates for each other every now and then, the Mr is taking me to the circus next week, beyond excited!!!

I managed to snap up a voucher on Groupon for a restaurant near us so we went for a lovely lunch then a wander around the antiques centre and farm shop :) Lovely afternoon out!

Now I love seeing pictures of yummy food on peoples blogs, so here is what we indulged on!

Pan Seared Brixham Scallops With Rocket Pesto

Plaice Goujons With Alioli

Chargrilled Westcountry Rump Steak

With Homemade Chips and Rocket & Parmesan Salad

Pan Fried Free Range Chicken With Chorizo & Wholegrain Mustard Mash

Hands down best scallops I have ever tasted! Plus the chicken was a piece of melt in the mouth, moist amazingness! We will definitely be revisiting :)
