It's November! And months since I posted about our newborn- who is now practically a teenager! In all seriousness though, it's time to get back onto the blog to update you about what Figbar has been up to, and there is no better time than now. Especially because it's November- the month of Thanksgiving in the USA (my- Steph's- homeland!). To celebrate my favourite national holiday (aside from July 4th, but I figure that's not going to be so popular over here ;-), we at Figbar decided to give Thanks all month!
You can follow our hashtag #figthanks this month to see who we are thankful for. Of course, we started with you lovely lot of sweet-toothed people with a sweet deal on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays till 6pm this month: any dessert on our menu and a glass of Chapel Down Wines Sparkling Brut for £10!
We feel so lucky to be part of the Norwich Lanes community and the community of the Fine City of Norwich, and we have a million people to be thankful for, so fitting everyone into one month is going to be impossible, but we are going to be doing our best to give thanks in the best way we know- with sugar and smiles!
November isn't just for giving thanks; however, as we watch fireworks and bonfire light up our nights, Chef Jaime has given us a throwback to our youths with a special chocolate caramel krispy treat. I'd recommend a pairing with his delicious hot chocolate- a coveted recipe he won't even share with me! Hot chocolate is on our menu all the time, but those squares are gone once they are sold, so I'd be in like a shot!
We also- as the media has been reminding us for awhile- have the USA election this month. So please join us on Tuesday, November 8th to stress and worry and then on Wednesday, November 9th (and all days thereafter) to commiserate/celebrate! As with giving thanks- sugar and smiles should solve any election troubles, shouldn't they?
So, just a quick hello again from me- I'm back to getting organized, so watch this blogspace for more pictures and love from us. In the meantime, we are so thankful for you!! Don't forget to follow along this month on our social accounts at #figthanks :-D
