What’s In My Bag For Comic Relief? Day 3



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 3!
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 3


Roast Chicken Dinner

Roast Dinner

I must begin by saying that when I decided to cook a roast dinner I was worried that the ingredients might not fit in my Emma Bridgewater bag.  I usually either take a Hessian bag or my shopping trolley out when I go shopping but I wanted to make sure that I only used the one bag I had to be very careful about what I purchased.

I popped to my local butcher Aubrey Allen to get a small chicken to feed the 3 of us which when placed in the bag actually didn’t take up too much room.

I was very lucky to find that there was a little market outside the Pump Rooms in Leamington Spa selling local grown vegetables so I picked up some purple sprouting broccoli, potatoes and a cauliflower.  I already had some sweet potatoes in the house and the ingredients to make Yorkshire puddings and cheese sauce.  The carrots were a Marks and Spencer purchase.
