After about 5 hours of eating and drinking, we went around Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus and Regent Street for a little sightseeing and to stretch our legs and stomachs a bit before dinner time (yes, you read it right... more food). For dinner we went to Jamie Oliver's Jamie's Italian at Westfield shopping complex. To start, I had the wild truffle tagliatelle which was just heavenly; freshly made pasta tossed in butter, nutmeg and parmesan cheese and then top with shaved black truffle.
Next, I had the humongous Burger Italiano made with British beef pattie, with melting fontina cheese, crispy salami, lettuce, tomato salsa, dill pickles and crispy fried onions. Yum.
To end the meal, I had my all time favourite dessert, tiramisu. This classic Italian coffee flavoured trifle was served with orange mascarpone cream and dusting of cocoa powder...
Every year at work we raise money for a charity and this year we are supporting Movember for the prostate cancer charity. Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a moustache.... Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days. Some of the guys at work are doing it but unfortunately, I cannot grow a moustache. To raise money, my team and I held a bake sale and some raffles earlier and I contributed a couple batches of Nigella's sweet and salty crunchy nut bars which went down like hotcakes! We're gonna have another bake sale and I have to make more of them among other things.
Anyway, enough about me. How was your weekend? It's 19 days to Christmas. How exciting!
