Yesterday we decided to go into the city of Bristol.
As we walked out of the car park onto the main shopping centre, we realised that the city had been invaded by Shaun (the Sheep) in the City. I snapped a few Shaun the Sheep, the (first one) above Shaun on the Cob was my favourite as it was shaped like a sweetcorn, there was also Jasberry Ram (Raspberry), Melonie (Melon) and even Tutti Frutti, but I didn't spot those, not that I was on the trail or anything, but you could see plenty of little ones were.
We stopped first to have a bite to eat, not a full blown vegetarian breakfast, but something light and tasty. We stopped at Royce Rolls in St Nicholas Market. I had a savoury slice and D had a sausage roll.
Then we headed towards the Bristol Harbour. It was real busy there with the Bristol Harbour Festival. We wandered around the harbour area for a little while, but eventually winded our way back to St Nicholas Market for more vegetarian eats, this time falafels from Eat A Pitta. I like their falafels, but this time found them a little rough around the edges that my throat felt a little scratched, still tasty enough and to say how good they are, even D enjoys them. In the past he has averted falafels calling them 'feel awfuls', referring to the after effects of beans, but not with these, so that is a sign of approval.
Usually when we go into Bristol, its just for a day out. We will eat something whilst there, but other than a maybe a DVDs, CDs and a book or two, we don't really go there spend. But this time was different, I managed to spend quite a bit. I purchased a floral patterned dress from Cabot Circus Shopping Centre, a couple of reduced prices American cookbooks, a pair of ear-rings from a stall outside St Nicholas Market, 3 bars of Pyscho Chilli Chocolate from Dr Burnoriums Extraordinary Hot Sauce Emporium, and a little bag to carry my purse, keys and mobile phone from the charity shop for £1.99. D as usual picked up some DVDs and a couple of CDs for weekend viewing and listening. Satisfied with our lot and a good day out, we decided to head back home to Wales.
When we got in, I was glad that I had something in the fridge to reheat. I had made some vegetarian chilli with mixed peppers and black turtle bean early in the week at the request of my nephews and nieces who wished for enchiladas.
Well I kept back enough for a meal for D and me, and we also had enchiladas.
