Lord of the Life of Brian

It's been a while since I posted about films I've watched. Then again, I still don't watch them all that frequently!

Does anyone else go through days of watching tonnes of films, then weeks of nothing? I know I can't be the only one!

So I'm still working towards the following goal:
061. Watch 100 films

Here are films 31-40. I'm actually just over halfway now, with 52 films watched, but have been procrastinating over blogging about them ;)

31. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014)
Genre: Fantasy/Adventure
In a Word: Arkenstone
In a Sentence: The Lonely Mountain is in the hands of the dwarves and Bilbo, but the threats keep on coming and a big battle ensues to fight back the forces of darkness, in this final part of the Hobbit trilogy.
Recommended: For Tolkien fans not too bothered about it being an accurate adaptation of the book. (It's good, but there are some differences!)

32. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
Genre: Fantasy/Adventure
In a Word: Beginning
In a Sentence: Bilbo is old and entrusts the ring of power to his nephew Frodo, who ends up embarking upon a journey to destroy the ring, along with a fellowship of dwarf, elf, hobbit and man.
Recommended: For fantasy fans who don't want the story to be over in just one film.

What Do Vegans Put On Toast?

Last month, whilst out with Mum, we ended up going to Mama Ghanoushe for lunch. Situated in the village of Hurstpierpoint, Sussex, Mama Ghanoushe offers a range of vegeterian, vegan, raw and gluten free foods.

We probably spent ten minutes trying to decide what to have, because there were so many delicious-sounding choices!

I opted for avocado on toasted artisan bread, which came with a delicious salad!
I nearly forgot to take a picture, because I was pretty hungry...

Although avocado on toast sounds like a really simple meal, this was amazingly delicious. Admittedly I left the tomatoes (I can't stand them; I asked for mine without them but they arrived with...) but the rest was really tasty, and definitely worth the price.

Drink-wise, I had a natural sparkling rose drink.
This cafe was great in that they offer advice to anyone with allergies/dietary requirements as to what foods on their menu are suitable. It's nice to see somewhere go that extra length to help people find something tasty!

Really enjoyed the food; if I'm ever there again I know I'll be spoilt for choice.
