Review: Shimla Pinks, Leicester

Yum
Shimla Pinks on London Road in Leicester is part of a small Midlands chain of Indian restaurants. I've driven past this large restaurant many times but never thought to go in. We usually like to eat in family run, local Indian restaurants and I always thought this place was a big chain and assumed the food wasn't too good.

Review: The Swan Inn, Mountsorrel

Yum
The Swan Inn is our local pub, old and rickety, full of friendly locals, the occasional dog and old battered chairs and tables. The Swan is also a fantastic place to go out for dinner. You weren't expecting that were you? My brother works behind the bar so I know the staff well and remember how good the food was a few years back when head chef Nicola was in the kitchen. She's recently returned and the food is better than ever! Last week, Mummy Bites and I headed down there for dinner. The menu changes frequently and there is a large specials board to choose from too.

Meal Planning Monday

Yum
Its been a while since I've done a #mealplanningmonday post. The last month or so has been manic. We've both been busy with work and we've eaten out a lot too so I feel like now (after a busy Easter bank holiday) is the perfect time to calm down and get organised! Plus, I miss my kitchen, I feel like its been ages since I spent any real time in there experimenting and cooking.

I was delighted to be invited to take part in the Maille Culinary Challenge for March and April. They asked a number of foodie bloggers to come up with a new recipe using one of their wonderful products.

A Lovely Lentil & Spinach pie

Yum
I can't take the credit for this one, its a recipe from Nigel Slater's Kitchen Diaries II. Such a gorgeous book full of lovely simple recipes and one I often use. You can find the original recipe here on the Guardian website but I recommend you check out Nigel's website too as its just fabulous.
