Weekend Summary #2 - Handmade Burger Company and Baking...

I was so excited for the weekend thats just gone because it had literally been weeks since me and George both had time off work at the same time, as he works every other weekend and has an odd day off in the week, it can be hard to find the time to do things so I had been looking forward to this for ages. On Saturday we literally did nothing, it was so good! We had a long lie in, got the big food shop delivered so now we actually have a full fridge and just watched TV and spent time together. I made some tiffin later on in the day, recipe here, as its one of our favourites. 

I said in lasts weeks weekend summary that we had some good news so we wanted to celebrate, on Sunday we had 'date day' and went for a nice meal at Handmade Burger Company. The last time we went to a Handmade Burger was when we still lived in Leicester, and it's almost a year since we left now! They have so many new additions to the menu, I can't recommend it enough! I went for the Peanut Butter and Bacon Chicken Burger with cheese and George went for the same, just with a beef burger rather than chicken, we also shared a side of chips. The burgers were insane! One half was covered in smooth peanut butter and the other was smothered in chilli jam, we were both a bit sceptical but we were intrigued and I think we both have new favourites! Seriously, if you go to a handmade burger, you need to try this! Also the man who served us was so lovely, he was so chatty and welcoming. 
At Meadowhall we picked up Hello Life by Marcus Butler, i'm going to do a full review on my blog soon but just by skipping through, im already loving it. This is the sort of book young people need to read, I feel so motivated to eat better, exercise and generally get my act together a little bit, he knows what hes talking about and has some really good advice in there. I never wanted to get sucked into buying youtubers book as there are so many out there now but I've always liked Marcus, he seems like a really nice person and this book is different to the rest. Have you read it? From Superdrug I picked up a new conditioner to try, I go through conditioner so quick, it was only two weeks ago I picked some up and im already out. I'm not sure how good this will be, it's limited edition and I was sucked in by the packaging and the scent, I didn't think the last conditioner I bought from Superdrug was going to be great as it was just their own but it's really good so hopefully this will be the same. It looks pretty anyway. 
I would love to know what you got up to this weekend, and let me know if you've read Marcus' book, I'd love to know what other people think!
