What I Ate Wednesday #11


It's What I Ate Wednesday again today and I FINALLY have something different to share with you all.

Me, Phillip, his mum and her partner went to London West End yesterday to watch Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I thought it was fab, though not as good as others that I've seen.

I had been looking during the day for places to eat, there were a couple of small restaurants around but we eventually settled on Nandos. I've never been to Nandos before so I didn't know what to expect other than I've heard the main part of it is Piri Piri.

I don't know if its the same in all Nando's restaurants but I wasn't expecting having to make our own orders at the desk and get our own cutlery and condements. It wasn't a problem of course, I just haven't been to a restaurant where it operates this way.

so.. lets get onto my full day of eats shall we?

Breakfast: Dorset Porridge Oats with Cacao and Orange Granola
Lunch: Lentil and Bacon Soup
Dinner: Now.. there's no picture for my main because I was so looking forward to eating and I was really hungry that it completely slipped my mind.
So.. I had 1/2 Chicken with Mango and Lime seasoning, Corn on the Cob and Macho Peas.
I loved the chicken with the Mango and Lime, the seasoning was lovely. The corn on the cob wasn't very juicy, I ended up leaving half of it. The Macho peas were great as it was mixed with mint and I LOVE mint sauce.
Dessert: Caramel Swirl Cheesecake - Have I ever mentioned my love for cheesecake? Well, if I haven't, now is when you know. Cheesecake is my ULTIMATE dessert and I reckon that I could live on the stuff. This was yum but it had a weird thick texture to it unlike other cheesecakes that I've had. It did come with a pot of double cream but I didn't have that.
Snacks: a handful of honey and chocolate covered nuts - There's a new place that has opened up in the city centre called Grape Tree that sells loads of different health foods like nuts, dried fruits etc and me and P picked some up this weekend. They're lovely, but I wouldn't say that they were particularly 'health' foods. I can't find the cals info on this or the packaging, but I bet that they're pretty high in calories.

I'm SO bummed that I didn't manage to get a picture of my main dinner which I guess defeats the purpose here of showing you what I ate. FAAAAAIL..

I guess it's back to boring eats from now on, right? ;)

  1. Oh we saw that rendition of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory when we were in London! I loved it but I have never seen it in any other place. The cheesecake looks tasty :)

    1. Yeah, I thought it was really good too. Only ever seen stuff in London too, seen Matilda(best one I've seen so far) and the Bodyguard. I still want to see Wicked and Lion King though. :)
