Everybody loves Batman

Recently it seems that superheroes are everywhere... The bf LOVES batman so he has a batman tshirt, belt buckle, cufflinks and now he wants a phone case! But it's also in the shops and of course the Big Bang Theory is also making geek chic cool. So it got me thinking and inspired me to make an outfit or two...

Happy St Patrick's Day!!

Well I don't know about you, but after such a busy week and weekend, I've had a lovely relaxing St Patricks day with my duvet and DVDs in the living room :-)

I'd LOVE to know what you got up to though

Peanut Butter Sesame Noodles

I've been watching a lot of Nigella's cookery shows on tv recently and there are SO many of her recipes that I am just dying to try but never really have the time (not to mention the fact that if I did, I would be the size of a house!) but there was one recipe that really jumped out at me - her peanut butter and sesame noodles!
The great thing about this recipe is that it can be eaten hot or cold and is great for a packed lunch too.

You will need:
egg noodles (I used pre cooked and just heated them)
bean sprouts
Pepper (any colour)
Spring onion
Sesame seeds
Sesame oil
Lime juice
Soy sauce
Peanut butter
Sweet chilli sauce

1. Put 1 tablespoon of sesame oil, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, 2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce, 2 tablespoons lime juice and a hefty serving (about 100g) peanut butter in a bowl and mix.

2. Put the beansprouts, red pepper, sliced spring onions and the noodles into a bowl.
Pour the dressing over them and mix thoroughly to coat everything well.

3. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve.

(Quantities of noodles, bean sprouts, onion and pepper can vary according to preference)

Enjoy :-) x

Anyone remember these?

Does anyone remember these from the 90s? The weird skirt-over-trousers combination?

I was thinking about them last night. I remember I had two pairs, one grey and one black, and I was gutted that I wasn't allowed to wear them to school. I wonder if they will ever make a comeback?

What do you think, hot or not??
