eating out in Glasgow

homegrown and local menu

We may not have been eating our own home-grown goodies but it was lovely to be supporting the local network of farmers and growers in the area while tucking into delicious food at the Malmaison brasserie in Glasgow.

During our stay I ate carrot and ginger soup and new potatoe and goats cheese salad starters and roasted vegetable frittata and grilled bream mains.  George had salmon carpaccio and chicken liver parfait starters and chicken and haggis roulade and slow roast pork mains.

    Did you stay at the Malmaison? I always used to get my company to put me up there when I was in Glasgow on business (I’d pay the excess few quid on top of the limit they set…). It’s a great hotel in a fascinating bit of Glasgow (although I think all Glasgow is great…but I am a Glaswegian – sort of)

    it was ace and I think the deals may be even better now so start getting creative with how to persuade your company to send you there. £69 for a room or £99 for 2 courses for 2 + wine. we love Glasgow too

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
