Hello, and a huge warm welcome to my blog! My name’s Charlotte Jayne Jackson and I’m currently based in Shropshire, England. The main focus of my blog is fashion, food and adventures so if that sounds great to you stick around, take a look, and enjoy! ~ x
On Saturday I visited a couple of friends and we had a fabulous evening of making our own cocktails and pizza!
We all bought our own mixers and cocktail ingredients and ended up with our own versions of various cocktails such as a daiquiri and a pornstar martini.
Honestly, quite successful over all haha! We had a few sad attempts because we were estimating the amounts of alcohol but we ended up with some delicious drinks ~ we even garnished the glasses with little bits of melon and strawberry for fun ❤
We also made our own pizza in the pizza oven my friend owns and OMG they were insanely tasty. Like REALLY good. I made mine with goats cheese, mozzarella, olives and mushrooms and it may not have looked the prettiest but it certainly tasted amazing (trust me!).
And as if pizza isn’t filling enough…we also tucked in to a homemade cookie and caramel ice cream bake :D! We never managed to finish the entire thing though, but we certainly tried ~
Hope all your days are going well and you are all eating the most delicious food.
On Sunday I visited a dessert restaurant in Shrewsbury for lunch. This was my first ever time at a dessert restaurant and I loved it! We ordered french toast and a strawberry and chocolate crepe and shared it between the two of us. It was so delicious, with the crepe being my wining favourite…
The restaurant was called ‘Sweet’ and it had a very colourful and vibrant charm to it. I would definitely recommend visiting here if you ever come to Shrewsbury as the food is delightful and the place just makes you feel happy.
I think it’s important at this time, during a pandemic, to make the most of eating out so that businesses can continue to do well and thrive. It must be a very worrying time for restaurant owners not knowing if they may be forced to close at any time.
You just have to remember to try and stay safe while you visit!
Visiting cafes and restaurants is something I have always loved to do so I missed it a lot during lockdown this summer… hopefully another lockdown won’t happen again any time soon.
