What’s In My Bag For Comic Relief? – Day 1


This year to raise awareness about Comic Relief I will be running a week long food focused blog post and vlog posts! Today is Day 1!
I have been provided with an exclusive Emma Bridgewater bag for life to base my ‘What’s in My Bag’ blog post around.
This year Emma Bridgewater has created an exclusive new homeware range for Red Nose Day 2013, available from HomeSense and TK Maxx stores throughout the UK.
The money raised from the range will be spent by Comic Relief to help people living incredibly tough lives across Africa and here in the UK.
The bag for life costs £9.99 with at least £4 going to Comic Relief which I’m sure you will agree is a massive donation and will help so many people out via this fantastic cause.
For more information please visit www.tkmaxx.com or www.homesense.com
If the bag isn’t your cup of tea there are so many other items you can purchase knowing that a good percentage of the sale price is going to help not only people in our own country but those in Africa.

Day 1


Today my Emma Bridgewater bag contained the ingredients to make the following dish:

Crab and Chilli Spaghetti

Crab and Chilli Spaghetti

This dish was developed using what was left in my fridge as a ‘use up’ exercises  I often find these turn out to be the most exciting dishes and this one did not disappoint.

After having a rummage in the fridge I found some Asparagus, Vine Tomatoes and Cream.  To the ingredients from the fridge I added a clove of garlic, tin of white crab meat, chilli flakes, dried oregano and spaghetti from the store cupboard.

I fried the asparagus, garlic and tomatoes in a little olive oil before adding in the crab meat, I then sprinkled the dried spices and finished with a touch of cream.
