What’s In My Bag For Comic Relief? Day 5

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 5!

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 5

Tuna Quesadilla

If I’m being honest I’ve never actually eaten a traditional Quesadilla but a quick look on Mr Google gave me an idea of how to make one, I hope purists don’t mind that to make this I just threw a few things together with no thought!

My Tuna Quesadilla contained tinned tuna, grated mature chedder, olives, Tabasco sauce and roasted peppers.  The Quesadilla was served with a green bistro salad.

Chiquito Durham

I recently visited Chiquito in Durham with fellow blogger Katie from Lady From A Tramp  we originally tried to get a table in Funky Bhudda but were told they were not serving food so we tool refuge next door in Chiquito.

We started off by looking at the vast cocktail menu and both decided on the non-alcoholic variety!

Katie chose the Cranberry Cooler (£2.99)  which was a mixture of cranberry & apple juice with sweet & sour blended with crushed ice.

I went for the Apple Flower (2.99) which was a mixture of apple juice, elderflower cordial & sweet & sour, topped with soda.

I personally think £2.99 for a non alcoholic drink is a little bit pricy.

Nachos and salsa are always provided free of charge by Chiquito, it saves ordering a starter!

Katie’s main course was the Spicy Chicken Quesadilla with chips (£7.99)

I went for the Spicy Chicken Quesadilla with salad (£7.99)

We both agreed that the filling could have been hotter, mine was very cool and I’m sure it’s not supposed to be served like that!

I think places like Chiquito have good points and bad points, they are open from around 11am until closing so you know that you will always be able to get a meal during the day which suited us fine on this occasion, the bad point is chain restaurants are very overpriced for the food that you get, I would much rather visit an independent restaurant where the value for money is a little better and the food quality is of a higher standard.
