Sunday Summary: Good Food & Good News

Todays Sunday Summary is going to a lot more positive than last weeks, as this week has been one hundred times better and I couldn’t be happier. I also mentioned that I wanted to start introducing more lifestyle through my Sunday posts, so i’m going to be sharing about an amazing eatery in my local town that just opened up today, and it’s amazing!

As it was my Mum’s birthday this Monday just gone, my family, boyfriend and myself all went out for a lovely little meal at Bodega Cantina, which is a lovely little South American kitchen that specialises in the tastiest of foods and the most delicious cocktails. I’ve previously visited Bodega in Birmingham, which I loved so when they opened up one in my local town, I just knew I had to try it out.

We started off with drinks, most of my family went for diet coke’s and pepsi’s, but I tried out the Non Alcoholic Passionfruit Twist Cocktail, so good and so tasty! We then all opted for the starter of House Nachos with Chilli and they were so yummy, the tortillas were huge and the guacamole still had chunks of avocado in it – they were divine and so filling! We all went for the Bodega Burritos, a few of my family had the pulled chicken but I opted for the pulled pork. All of the burritos are available in different spice levels, but I stuck with the mild (wimp!). The burritos were huge and the sweet potato fries that accompanied them were so tasty, I could have just eaten a plate of them on their own! As it was my Mums birthday, she got a free drink which was a lovely gesture and it’s safe to say we left their sufficiently full and gleaming after a lovely service.

If you live in the West Midlands area, make sure you give Bodega a visit if you’re a lover of Southern American food, yummy cocktails and good company!

Onto the good news, this week whilst trolling through my day at work I received a very exciting phone call about a job opportunity – I don’t want to jinx anything, but cross your fingers for me!

P.S – My new blog layout went live yesterday, what do you think of it? – Few tweaks to be done, but i’m so happy with it! Big thanks to Charlee from CharmedCharlee for being so patient with me!

How has your week been?
