A New Drink Experience

A few days ago we were watching TV when an advert came on for Robinson’s Squash’d. My husband and I discussed what a great idea we thought it was and how we’d liked to try it. In a strange twist of fate, I was then offered the opportunity to review the product. Robinson’s Squash’d is a very concentrated squash in a tiny bottle.

Her dad and I are running a half marathon and Libby is competing in her first race- a 1km walk that she will be doing with her aunty Emma.    We always have pasta for dinner the night before a race, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to try the new Mediterranean Chicken Pasta + Cheesy Crumb Topping from the Schwartz range. I’m vegetarian, so we substituted the Chicken for Quorn. I’m always really pleased when sauces that are designed to go with chicken are vegetarian. Quorn pieces are…
