#MorrisonsMums Bank Holiday

By Maxwell1212 @MummyToTheMax
Last week I received an exciting letter in the post. In the envelope were £80 worth of Morrison vouchers and a letter asking me if I would like to be a #morrisonsmum for the bank holiday weekend. I was asked to go along to Morrisons and write about my experience. I was also asked to share a recipe idea on my blog. I was really excited and settled down to get planning meals for the weekend, I then went on to write a detailed shopping list. My shopping list consisted of some goodies I knew which we would like over the weekend however also some goodies for Maxwell as I planned to make him a special rainbow picnic.

On Saturday Ben and I drove to our local Morrisons store which is only 10 minutes away. We were able to park in a child bay once we got there which was fantastic as we had Maxwell with us. The car park was big enough to get a large amount of cars in and there were quite a few child bays and disabled bays for people that needed to use them. The trolleys were easy to access, they were just a short walk away from where we had parked.

Once we got into the store we were greeted by lots of wonderful yellow signs. Curious, as I had never seen them before I wanted to learn more. It turned out that Morrison had slashed many of their prices and they wanted their customers to know that they were cheaper than other supermarkets. I thought the bright yellow signs were a wonderful idea to promote that they were cheaper than their competitors and it made me want to buy the cheaper options when I was browsing for items I wanted to buy.

We managed to spend just over £80 on our shop and we managed to buy a lot of fruit and salad - something which Maxwell adores. We also managed to get some meat and a amazing pasta dish which was under £3 which fed all 3 of us, as well as a bag of curry which was priced at just £5 which Ben and I ate as a treat on the Sunday evening instead of getting our usual takeaway. I was pleasantly surprised at some of the prices and managed to pick up strawberries and raspberries for £1 each and even a lettuce and cucumber for 49p each which is a bargain in my eyes.

Whilst in Morrisons we did pick Maxwell a few little goodies up. We picked Maxwell up a golf set and a ball. The golf set was priced at £4 and the ball was priced at £2. We also managed to pick up some weed killer for our front garden which was £5. Whilst browsing I also spotted some clothing for Maxwell. I didn't buy him any clothing on the Saturday when we visited but I plan to buy him a few bits and bobs in a few weeks just before we go away on holiday. Morrisons offer a wide range of goods which shows that Morrison have a lot to offer under one roof.

Once we got home I set about planning Maxwell and I's picnic. Unfortunately Ben was working so he was unable to enjoy our picnic however Maxwell and I had a great time. We enjoyed rainbow jelly, Marshmallow gummy bears, Rainbow wraps and even fruit skewers. The food tasted delicious.  I wanted to share with you how we made our rainbow wraps.
Summertime Rainbow Wrap Recipe
#MorrisonsMums Bank Holiday
You will need: Small tortilla wrap Red Pepper Meat - We choose chicken Cheese Cucumber Red onion Mayo
  1. Cut your pepper, meat, cheese, cucumber into small chunks. Bare in mind that you would like them to go into a arch shape so think about this when you are cutting them. Once cut slice you red onion into a ring. Cut the ring in half and remove some of the center so you are left with a arch.
  2. Once you have cut your ingredients start assembling the rainbow. It is up to you in what order you do this however make sure the rainbow is at the bottom. I put the red pepper at the top, then the chicken, the cheese, cucumber and the onion.
  3. Once the rainbow is assembled use the mayo to make a cloud effect at the bottom of the rainbow. This will make it look neat and tidy and bring the ingredients all together.
This recipe is simple to make but healthy to eat. Maxwell adored his rainbow wrap and it is something which I will continue to make him. It is perfect for summer.

I received vouchers for the purpose of this review . However everything written in this post is my own honest opinion.
