Friday Night 3 Ways.

 In Uncategorised

Going out on a Friday night to paint the town red is so 2019! If the last 2 years have taught us anything it is that home is where the heart is. Especially at the end of a busy week, many of us would prefer the quiet sanctuary of home where we can start peeling away the layers of stress and be ourselves.

The best place to be at the end of the week? In bed, or on the sofa. Wherever you choose for your home-sojourn, it has to be comfy, with your fave snacks at hand, and some entertainment to transport you away from the week gone by and set the tone for the weekend ahead.

Our top 3 picks for the location of your Friyay Night Chill Session.

  • A comfy sofa where you can rest your weary head and fully recline. An L-shape corner couch is good for that, be sure to call dibs on the L part before someone else gets the best spot. Complete the R&R vibe with a Granny Goose Couchmate TV cushion to keep your toes warm. Our selection of Fiber Guard sofas are entirely spill proof if you are planning on snacking!
  • The floor – no kidding! Get comfy with a Granny Goose Sleepover Kit and make a little glamping area in front of the TV.
  • Bed – a self-indulgent sanctuary of sleep luxury – If you are the type of person who falls asleep mid movie in bed, prop yourself up into the most relaxed sitting position with the Comfort U Pillow – it can be reconfigured any way that suits your back, head or legs.

Comfort is best paired with some soulful snacks!

Nothing beats skipping dinner and heading straight to the treats.  Some of our fave indulgences and how to make them:

Home-made hot or iced chocolate:

Rated 10/10 by housemates the world over. (You can mix up a giant batch of all the dried ingredients in advance to save on time).

You’ll need

  • Good Cocoa Powder
  • Milk powder or Creamer
  • Coconut milk powder (optional)
  • Cinnamon powder
  • Half a table spoon of sea salt (this balances the sweet so nicely).
  • Bag Mini marshmallows
  • Treacle sugar

Mix all ingredients to your taste in a big kitchen jar.

*Hot full cream milk to serve. 2 heaped table spoons of your dry mix. For some extra razzle dazzle you can blow torch the top of the marshmallows before serving.  Serve cold with some ice on a hot summer eve.

Serve up in your fave from our collection of mugs.

Sweet & Salty Popcorn

This is a total crowd pleaser. Here’s how to make it:

  • Coat the bottom of a big deep one like the one from our top quality selection of pots will work best.
  • Cover the bottom with a layer of popcorn kernels.
  • PUT THE LID ON YOUR POT. Otherwise it’s a catastrophe of epic proportions.
  • Turn on the heat. Wait till all the kernels pop. Usually you can turn off the heat when the popping it intermittent. Otherwise your popcorn will burn.

In a separate saucepan heat up:

  • 2 tablespoons of salted butter.
  • 4 table spoons of sugar.
  • Teaspoon of cinnamon.
  • Salt to your taste.
  • 3 table spoons of water.

Heat until sugar is melted and liquid reduced. Pour over popcorn in pot. Mix until it’s all coated nicely. Everyone should get their own big bowl of this delicious mix. Our Mason Cash bowls are just perfect for the job.

Cheesy Microwave Doritos

The microwave is an underrated nacho making machine. A quick spin with just plain chips really brings out their flavour.

How to make:

Layer some ‘previously toasted’ corn chips with sliced jalapenos (preferably one chili slice on each chip) and a mix of grated cheddar and mozzarella cheese. Place on low heat on a 10 sec cycle – check to see If cheese has melted, and repeat until it has.

Snack should be served with great entertainment!

We’ve got something for everyone here, although it might just get down a vote.
