Monstrous, I tell you

Have just finished eating the world's most mammoth chicken, bacon and advocado club sandwich at Belle & Herbs (on Heaton Road in Newcastle, for those of you who are interested - thoroughly recommended for the homemadeness and the very good smoothies). Could get to like this being on maternity leave and popping out for lunch business...horror of horrors, could I be turning into a 'lady who lunches'? Mind, I don't really have the handbags or gold sandals to really do justice to the stereotype.

Actually, the other good thing about being at home and having cable is being able to watch all the cookery programmes that are on (UKTV Food has a lot to answer for). Mind, I had to turn off the River Cafe Cookbook as Rose Grey and Ruth Rodgers were driving me up the wall - they are just so patronising. The food looks amazing, and I'd love to eat in their restaurant, but as tv presenters they really need to lighten up.

ha ha, just googled belle & herbs during a bored evening. and found your blog. i will try the sandwich as recommended. also followed the link to:- http://blog.ilovebelleandherbs.co.uk , what a corker, i agree that it is easily the best cafe in newcastle. i was in there yesterday, and they had six different fresh homemade soups on the menu! i tried their "jerk chicken and baked sweet potato" it was fabulous. multi-faceted with big chunks of jerked chicken, you could really taste the baking of the sweet potatoes. really quite boldly spiced, i think it would have made a great meal before they made it all into soup! recomended. does anybody know who is behind belle & herbs? who is belle and
herb! step forward.
