Today is Read a Book Day, a day to celebrate all things book-related. Whether you’re an avid reader or not, this day is the perfect excuse to pick up a book and read. It doesn’t even have to be a novel! There’s plenty of fascinating non-fiction out there, from history books to biographies. According to a survey last year, 84% of Brits have books in our homes and these days many of us read eBooks via our smartphones or tablets. All of which is very good news, as reading is supposed to make us happier and more empathetic!
Pancakes are for life, not just for Shrive Tuesday, they are easy to make for quick breakfasts, great for small meals or a light snack, fantastic after working out (especially our banana pancakes below) and lastly they are scummy as a dessert! But are you a coeliac or gluten-intolerant and sigh when everyone around you starts raving on about pancakes? Well, stop right there, and turn that frown upside! Just because you can’t eat gluten or dairy, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy one of the best loved foods of our nation, here at FMAG there are a few of us who are gluten, dairy and sugar free so in honour of the Bake Off celebrating intolerances we are sharing our favourite pancakes recipes!
We know, we know, when you’re a kid all those ‘Back to School’ signs in shops would always put a dampener on your ‘woohoooo we’re free for the summer’ moods – especially when you’d see them barely a week into your summer holidays! But with term time approaching (although some have already gone back) we thought it was safe to roll out a few ‘Back to School’ bits and bobs to help make getting back to into the learning groove more fun! We’ve got some cool things for students of all ages, whether you’re going back to school or off to University! Oh and we’ve also included a few things for parents sighing in relief at getting back to normality!
Today is not just any old Thursday! Today is National Burger Day. A whole day dedicated to succulent, juicy burgers topped with the works – crispy bacon, oozing melted cheese, fried onions, mushrooms and fresh tomato…. Sorry, got a bit side tracked there, you get the drift.
If you’ve not heard of this day before then you’re not alone. We’ve only recently discovered Black Cat Appreciation day and being the animal lovers that we are here at FMAG HQ we felt the need to back the notion of this day.
