Sometimes it just has to be ….

Marks & Spencer dine in for two chocolate and raspberry truffle bakes

A Marks & Spencer Dine in for Two for £10 meal. There is a preconception that when you write about food every meal involves hours of preparation, followed by even more time cooking. Whilst at times this is true, there are occasions when I want to come home and have something that I can put in the oven, and enjoy my wine by the fire, rather than juggling four different pots on the boil.

This weekend, taking recent events into account, we really couldn’t think of a better excuse than to let Marks & Spencer do the work for us. The highlight was this delicious Chocolate and Raspberry Truffle Bake. This mouth-watering dessert was incredibly moreish – the gooey chocolate and raspberry was the perfect balance of sweet and sharp. The rest of the meal was equally tasty, but this pudding most definitely stood out.

As long as Marks & Spencer continues doing this wonderful dinner deal, I will keep having to look for excuses to have a Saturday night in.

    I love the deal I’m hoping it’s running again this week. We had the rotisserie style chicken which is always a favourite and when it’s usually priced at £8 it makes the deal more bargainous! We also had veggies, lemon cheesecake and clementine juice. Yum!

      You’re right Mrs M, the deal is amazing value for money, and the food is always so tasty!

    Love this! It’s so true that everyone assumes foodies only ever slave away over a stove when they want to eat something… so nice to see that it’s not always the case ;)

      I agree Zoe, sometimes it’s nice to have someone else do all the work for you!
