Chai Spiced Cacao Porridge

Morning guys!! I hope you all had a fab weekend! I definitely did! Friday was my Mum’s birthday so we went out for chorizo and bean baked eggs and then spent the morning shopping before heading back to work! Friday night my Mum went out with her girls so I went for a much needed curry with my Dad! Not had a curry in years!! It was soooo good! Saturday I spent the morning walking round Sheffield getting all my jobs done that needed doing and then in the afternoon my Dad and I went to the cinema to see Christopher Robin! I recommend! Then back home for tea before I got ready to go out for the first time in two years with my friend Kitty and her friends! I had the BEST time!! Ooooh I’ve missed a classy cocktail and a good sing and dance!! I was out until 3.30am and then I was up on Sunday at 7am to go to Leeds for my Mum’s birthday celebrations with my Auntie/her sister! haha! But I was surprisingly energetic and stayed up until 11pm on Sunday too with no trouble!!! So we met my Auntie in the station, went for a classy cuppa in Harvey knicks before heading for a gorgeous lunch/brunch at Ox Club. I went for the curried baked eggs! A turmeric coconut new potato base with eggs, mango chutney, red onion pickle, spring onions, coriander and peanuts! so so so so good! We then headed to the cinema (a cinema made up of arm chairs and sofas! amazing) to watch Queen Victoria and Abdul! Such a good film!! Really really recommend that one!!! We then wondered back to the station to go home, get our PJS on, have a good bowl of pasta and catch up on tv!!! Such an incredible weekend! I hope you all had a lovely one too!
