I get such a pang of jealousy when I read foodie blog posts and food Instagrams from Londoners. Yesterday, my Twitter timeline was filled with people (mainly bloggers) getting pancakes at The Breakfast Club and I have to admit, I got kinda jealous! Why can’t we have some of the good stuff up north! We don’t have Byron’s, Patty & Bun, Meat Liquor and the rest of them, but what I can do is cook something myself. It won’t be as good but it will do for now! I had such a craving for sticky chicken wings so I made a huge plate of them. We also had some ribs and side portions of shop bought garlic bread and wedges. M&S do the best garlic bread! Whilst I was in there the other day, I found a strawberry and rhubarb presse. Ok, so I don’t know what a “presse” is but I recommend this drink, it’s amazing and the perfect Summer flavour combination! We had chocolate cake last week but it was so good that we treated ourselves to another one. It isn’t as good as homemade cake, of course but it’s absolutely fine! It sure is cheaper to buy this cake than it is to make one!

    Yuuum, those wings and butterfly prawns look amazing, as does the cake. Homemade/cooked food always trumps the London It-spots for me. (:

    That cake looks so delicious! I feel the same way, instagram and twitter are the worst places ~ always gives you the worst food envy ever!

    That cake! It looks so delicious! I know what you mean, we don't get much variety in the restaurant department here in Scotland. So jealous of all the bloggers who have instant access to good eats ^_^

    All of this looks so yummy, as a former Northerner and now Londonder, I know what you mean, but don't be fooled, there aren't many of us who can eat at those places all the time for the sake of our waist lines and bank balances. Sometimes, it's all about the good home made stuff.

    That food looks yummy. I have to add that up north you get food that us southerners don't have access to as well I went to uni up north and miss some of the goodies you can get from bakers and fish and chip shops. 🙂 Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog 🙂
