Kirsty’s Sausage and Sweet Potato Mash

20140129_171044I bought this Kirsty’s ready meal from Waitrose. It is Sausage with Sweet Potato Mash. Gluten free sausaged in a rich onion gravy with carrot and sweet potato mash. It is free from dairy, wheat and gluten, low in fat, low in sugar, only 260 calories and one of your 5 a day. Something I quite liked about it when I bought it was it had a fairly long time before the use by date, I think over a month! Meaning I could keep it inn the fridge for a day when I needed a quick meal. I had it with baked beans.

I liked the meal, for convenience it is great and it seems healthy. For me, I generally like meat very well done if I cook it, but for a microwave meal you can’t expect this really. I liked the taste of the mash, it was very mashed it had no lumps in. The portion was fairly small, but as I had beans as well I didn’t notice this too much. I would recommend if you like this sort of food. I can’t remember the price, but the website says it is £3.

I also tried the Spanish Chicken with Brown rice which I enjoyed more, it was quite spicy and the rice had vegetables in so I didn’t cook anything extra to go with it. I forgot to take a photo but here’s one from the website.

I recently bought this Spicy Fruit Loaf from Genius. I have had it toasted with butter, and with peanut butter. I like the taste and it has a good amount of fruit in. Would buy again!

Gourmet Burger Kitchen – Gluten Free Menu

Having heard about GBK’s new gluten free bun I couldn’t wait to try it, I haven’t had a proper burger for years! So me and my friends went to the Bluewater GBK, as we arrived and asked for a table I asked our waiter if he has a gluten free menu. Not only did he know what it was straight away but he took one from the pile next to the normal menus, no going to the back office to find the one menu!

I went for the Halloumi Bites, and the Avocado Bacon Beef Burger with a corn on the cob. The chips are currently not gluten free as they are cooked in the same oil as onion rings. The Halloumi bites were lovely (I forgot to take a picture) with a spicy kiwi dip, which was interesting and really nice but a bit too spicy for me to have much. You can choose how the burger is cooked, I went for well done.

I honestly really enjoyed it, the bun was nice. It looks different than the gluten buns which is good and makes me feel at ease. It did break up a bit but it didn’t fall apart and didn’t bother me, the whole burger was pretty messy to eat either way! The avocado and bacon were both really nice and the burger was cooked just how I like it, the corn was lovely too. I didn’t miss the chips, I was so full up after the burger. My friends all had their skinny chips which were very skinny and weren’t that impressed so I didn’t feel I was missing out.

The price was good, the service was quick and I believe they do take away too.

I will be going back and trying more ‘flavours’. It’s great to have so much choice, even though they are all burgers! I loved it.
