Food of Life: Birds Eye Date Night With A Difference

Birdseye-Fishfinger-tacos-5When Birds Eye asked me to take part in their Food of Life challenge the first thing I thought of was Fish Fingers, I know I should have been thinking about their fancy new Inspirations collection, which by the way is yummy, but for me Birds Eye will also be the go-to brand for my Fish Fingers, oh and they have to be the 100 percent cod ones as well.

Not content with just sending me over products from their collection, which is huge, my freezer is now stocked with goodies from fish chargrills, which can actually be grilled on the barbecue, chicken grills with a garlic and herb sauce and the most delicious, easy-to-cook rice fusions. They also sent me over a new table-cloth, mats, napkins, candles to set the mood, and even a hilarious Come Dine With Me CD. I even got a new dress and accessories for the occasion, which I promise to share soon.

The hamper also included Tacos, with the suggestion to try them with Fish Fingers, something I had never considered, but for date night this Bank Holiday my fiancé and I with friends decided to give it a go, as come on they sound amazing.


For me Fish Fingers, whether they are in a sandwich smothered in ketchup, teamed with creamy mash potato and beans, or even with boiled new potatoes, peas and sweetcorn – there is never a bad combination. Maybe it is to do with great memories of having them as a child, the ease in which they cook, I can bake nearly any dessert but for the main dish I really need something I can just throw in the oven, and Fish Fingers are perfect for that.

With the weather being semi OK this weekend, we had a rare glimpse of sunshine in between the rain that we decided to take our date night to the garden, and I have to be honest Fish Finger Tacos, which I call great ‘picnic’ meal, where I get to play with my food, is perfect to enjoy outdoors, as it is casual and fun without being a BBQ, which is what we normally have.

So armed with our Tacos, a plate staked high with Fish Fingers we added everything from cheese, lettuce, cherry tomatoes and even coleslaw. What I have learnt is there are no rules, you can place anything and everything in, as long as it fits. I would totally recommend just Fish Fingers and coleslaw, so good.

Have you given Fish Finger Tacos a go?

Food: Birds Eye Pop-Up Restaurant


When I heard that Birds Eye were open its doors to the world’s first pay-by-picture restaurant I have to be honest I was intrigued. I’m not a food snob, I love the convenience and ease of a Birds Eye dinner, heck fish fingers are my go-to comfort food along with mash and beans, so I really enjoyed tasting the delicious dishes to launch its new premium Inspirations range.

I have to be honest I wasn’t expecting much, but hey who turns down a free lunch, but I have to say I was so impressed with the Birds Eye concept restaurant, The Picture House, nothing about it made you think this was a frozen food brand with its shabby chic interior and open kitchen.

As the concept was pay-by-picture on Instagram, technology also featured in the menu which was displayed on an iPad, there were three options for the dinner options – Fish Chargrills and Chicken Inspirations as well as a Rice Fusion dish for veggies.

I went for the veggie option with smoke aubergine, goats cheese and soft herb fritters on a bed of Mediterranean vegetable rice, which was delicious, oh and I tried my dinner companions chicken dish, which was also lovely.

As well as tasting good I loved the way the dishes were styled, the vibe of the restaurant, as well as the encouragement to snap our meals with tuition from top foodie Instgrammer Marte Marie Forsberg, you have to check out her Instagram feed, tips like embracing the light, framing the meal, as well as using props – it was interesting and fingers crossed my Instagram to pay for my meal was OK!!!

After a delicious main we were treated with dessert, it was either a strawberry based pudding or a chocolate pot with orange ice-cream, of course I went for the choccie!!! It was heaven in a little pot and I devoured every last bit. A cuppa to finish was the perfect ending to a lovely relaxed lunch.

I wish all restaurants accepted payment with a simple Instagram!!!
