This weeks post I am reviewing Aisha’s Breaded Chicken Goujon because it’s halal. Also, I wanted to talk about halal food available in supermarkets that end up taking up a lot of space in Asian freezers…freezer number 2 that is.
Since moving to Birmingham, I have been fortunate to have more halal options available to me. Down South in my parent’s little peaceful village, the nearest Asian foodstore was a 7.7 mile drive (according to google maps). To be honest, us Asian’s living in these type of areas have got used to it. We buy in bulk thus the freezer ... (Read more)
I am back to review one of the favourite foods in this nation. No, it’s not curry, although that is a favourite too. It’s battered fish! More specifically I am reviewing Lidls Deluxe 2 Jumbo Battered Cod Fillets. Why you ask. Because people need answers and I am here to provide those answers!
So getting straight into it. I want to talk about the price. It’s expensive, really expensive. These 2 Cod Fillets cost £3.19. I still shed a tear when I think about it. But Mrs Reviews wanted some good quality fish for dinner. She never really asks for ... (Read more)
I’ve always loved to read. In fact, when I was in my penultimate year in high school, I was presented with an award in front of my peers and friends for reading the most books in the entire school – much to my teenage mortification. Now several years on, having worked with children in the education sector in various formats, I am keenly aware of the importance reading makes to a child’s development across all aspects. So when I became a parent, I knew I wanted to incorporate reading from as early as possible, even if he didn’t understand me ... (Read more)
How cool and hipster is Halloumi right now? It’s probably one of the trendiest and versatile foods out there. I have seen it used in so many different types of dishes. So I was surprised and not-so-surprised at the same time when I came across Aldi’s Specially Selected Halloumi Fries. It was instantly in the trolley because I had to try it. I did double-check the price of course!
Halloumi can be used in dishes in many ways. I once came across a menu where the vegetarian options were halloumi burger, halloumi chips and halloumi salad. At work, we have ... (Read more)
If you are anything like us, then you probably assume it’s expensive to shop in Waitrose. Being a young family, we don’t often do a full shop there and mostly shop at Aldi or Lidl which are close to us and also great for budget shopping.
When we do shop in Waitrose, it’s mainly for Baby Reviews because we want him to enjoy organic fruit and vegetables and our local Waitrose has a pretty good selection. However, we do usually end up buying a few things for ourselves as evident from our first review. But we never thought ... (Read more)
Anyone else find that going shopping makes them get pretty hungry? That’s my reason behind purchasing this little item during a grocery shop on a rainy Friday evening. As I wandered down the aisles, my eyes ravenously scoured the shelves, looking for something to satisfy my craving quickly enough when we got home before I entered full-on ‘hangry’ mode.
I decided to settle on this vegetarian pie from Aldi’s chilled section. It is actually much smaller than it appears in the photo. Approximately hand-size and only needed about 10 minutes in an oven to be heated up and ready.
I’ll ... (Read more)
