Grey Restaurant, Cardiff Review

In this modern world, it can be difficult to find the time to relax, the time to do something as a couple, yes I'm talking about date night. My boyfriend and I are very much into food, we are self confessed foodies. Date night is something we try and have every week, even if it means just heading out for pizza and the cinema. We recently headed out for a lovely sit down dinner at Grey Restaurant and Lounge which is located in the Hilton hotel here in Cardiff. The decor, modern and minimal, the location, central and the food, read on to find out.

Warburtons Thins

Anyone who knows you will tell you that I love all things bread! If I could just live out the rest of my days by a bread market, I would. So today I brought out the Warbutons brown thins after a leg session in the gym. This is probably the quickest sandwich I've ever whipped up, talk about feeling ravenous after an intense workout. These warburtons thins can be prepared in a variety of ways to suit you, thats the best thing about them. Toast them, fill them up or simply top them, either way they are pretty delicious. What did I do to mine? Read on to find out.

*Chicken Pilaf with greek yoghurt and chives

I love food but I enjoying cooking for other people even more. Last night I took some time out to cook a delicious dish for a few friends. I made a pot of Chicken Pilaf which went down a treat. Do you ever take the time to sit down and have dinner with your loved ones? Eating with other people somehow makes food more enjoyable and I guess that may be because food is a very social thing. Making this dish was made easy by Uncle Ben's Long grain & Wild Rice. Thank you to the Uncle Ben's team for kindly sending over an exceptional package. Cooking doesn't have to be hard, there's always a way around it and well when it comes to rice, Uncle Ben's is a good place to start.

Oatmeal porridge with Bananas, Frozen berries and blueberries

Today is the last day of July and frankly, I cannot believe it! This year is flying by and I'm not quite sure how I feel about that. Still, I'm having a really nice summer, no assignments, no university, bliss. Might as well enjoy it to the fullest since I don't exactly have a summer next year. Oatmeal is my go to breakfast most of the time because they are so versatile. The list of toppings that can be added to them is endless, the taste can be manipulated in a variety of ways and they are convenient. Started the day with this colourful, fruit-filled bowl; a great way to add to your 5 a day.

*Vivid Matcha Green Tea Powder Review

There is no love than that of tea! Okay so maybe I'm being a little dramatic but anyone who knows me will tell you that I'm an avid fan of all things tea, particularly matcha. The lovely people at Vivid Matcha kindly sent me their Green tea powder to try and can I just say that it didn't disappoint. But it doesn't stop there. Why make it tea alone when you can go a step further by making a delicious batch of Matcha pancakes. So let's dive right into the details.
