The not-so-ready ready meals – Valentine’s Special Ready meals, Valentine's Day, Cooking, Dinner, Restaurant, Food, Drink, Kettle Mag, Shayan Sacki
For Valentine's, I had it planned. I had the chicken ready and I was going to cook a romantic meal. I would put out some candles, maybe put some fancy clothes on, and then wine and dine my fiancé. Then I realised I don't have any chairs. How romantic can it be to sit round the coffee table watching...
The power of frozen: Making the most of your food
The other day I was shocked as a good friend started cooking bolognese, then got out some frozen diced onions. I had no idea such a thing existed, and even more so that someone would use it. I expressed my shock and was quickly told (more like asked) to re-evaluate my position. Shortly after, I did. As a...
The race that no one wants to win: Premier League Top 4
Form is temporary, class is permanent. The old saying is something that we all seem to be expecting for this years Premeir League and the top 4. However, the history we are all used to just doesn't seem to be happening. Week after week, Leicester just keep on winning and week after week, the so-called "big...
The loss of a Champions League Place is a benefit for the Premiership
"4th place is the equivalent of a trophy" - Arsene Wenger said this a few years ago famously during the trophy drought that Arsenal experienced prior to 2013. At the time, Wenger was criticised by fans and pundits alike for such comments. Striving to be fourth was not what the fans wanted to hear. To be...
National Burger Day – It is not just a craze veggie burger edited.jpg
I think after the events of August 27 2015 people will now believe me that National Burger Day is an actual thing and not something I made up as an excuse for having two burgers in a day. In fact, because of Mr Hyde, we now have a day to celebrate the ‘best sandwich ever’,...
The Ashes 2015: Expect the unexpected
Five tests is the equivalent of twenty five days - at least that is what we expected. The 2015 edition of The Ashes was an unexpected total of eighteen days. Australia were strong favourites with pundits and fans alike predicting an expected Australian victory. Alas, England did the unexpected and won back the urn. Whether the victory...
The Ashes : An Australian perspective and the key players for the Fourth Test Test cricket, ashes, cricket, england, australia, Kettlemag, Shayan Sacki
For those who hate cricket, the concept of a five day game is horrifying. For the lovers of cricket, it is heaven. The ebb and flow of Test Cricket, the 90 overs a day and the true grit and determination needed to be shown by every player and team brings out the true meaning of...
The Ashes Bounce Back: How can England regain the momentum
It has been a very strange English summer. The weather has been great at stages and sometimes beyond our expectations, but then in true British spirit, it becomes miserable again and more of the ‘same old, same old’ situation. This, coincidentally, is a clear reflection of English cricket this summer. Put aside the whole Pietersen Saga...
The Bloody Mary Burger at K West Hotel
I now have an association with burgers from most of my friends. I am no expert but I do like to eat as many as I can and try the latest and craziest burgers. This led me to the strange concoction by K West Hotel. At Easter they devised the Crème Egg burger, I didn’t...
Travelling: It’s a small world, or is it?
It took me over 12 hours to get back from Ecuador and almost 24 hours for my friends to get back from Australia. The Disney song "it's a small world after all" definitley feels a bit far fetched after so much time on a plane. However, less than a week back from my holiday and...
