As much as we try to eat healthily, ever now and then we have a takeaway night. It’s lovely to have a night off the cooking, get everything delivered to the door ready to eat and treat ourselves to a few ‘naughty’ foods. Our takeaway of choice is usually a pizza from Dominos, so when we were asked to review the new Big Pick n Mix deal we jumped at the chance!
The Big Pick n Mix deal includes 1 large pizza, 1 medium pizza, 1 chicken side, 1 other side dish and 2 x 500ml bottles of drink. We went for the Mighty Meaty and Pepperoni Passion pizzas, Chicken Strippers, Potato wedges and bottles of Coca Cola and Dr Pepper, plus an extra side order of coleslaw. All of this came to £26.98 – not bad to feed a family of 5!
Everything went down a treat. Gemma is a huge pizza fan, so she went straight for the pepperoni pizza, while Jacob dug straight into his favourite chicken strippers. Max eats anything and everything, so he had a bit of it all. As a special treat, the older children were allowed a cup of fizzy, which they thought was just fantastic. Kevin and I shared the Mighty Meaty pizza, which is a delicious tomato base topped with ham, beef, sausage, red onion, mushrooms and mozzarella. The wedges were a hit with everyone – they are really thick and chunky, and are perfect with the selection of dips that come with your order – BBQ, honey and mustard and garlic & herb.
To finish off our pizza party, we were sent a fun family game that everyone could get involved in. A fun twist on the classic party game, Stick the nose on the clown is a great way to entertain the children on a cold winter evening, and we all had a lot of fun playing, even Max.
As part of a family treat, or for a celebration or party, I would definitely recommend a Dominos night. You can adapt menus and deals to suit even the most fussy member of the family, and even add in desserts if you fancy it (the cookies are AMAZING). It’s obviously not something I would choose as an everyday meal, but it’s certainly something that we all deserve now and then 😉
