The Jelly Roll Cafe, Tewkesbury... (PICTURE HEAVY)

On Sunday, Mark and I went to the Jelly Roll Cafe which is a small independent cafe in Tewkesbury and one of the nicest places to go for tea and cake or a light lunch/brunch. (They also do a jazz evening but we haven't made it to one of those yet!) We are both massive foodie fans and this is somewhere I know that the food will always be fantastic.  For anyone interested in paying a visit, you can find them at 17 Barton Street, Tewkesbury.

They always have such amazing specials too...
 Trying to decide what to have off the menu- I tend to go for either the Welsh rarebit or the smoked mackerel pate as they are delicious and perfect for lunchtime.

I really like the decor too, the chairs are comfy and paintings from local artists adorn the walls

Mark looking rather excited...

Mark went for the chicken and bacon sandwich with barbecue sauce which came with a lovely side salad and the best coleslaw known to mankind!

In the end I went for the mackerel and horseradish pate which is served with massive doorsteps of granary bread. Heaven on a plate! 

 We also decided to go for another wander down by the river as it was such a nice day, despite being a little chilly (jeesh I sound like my parents!) Luckily my parka-esque coat proved perfect for keeping out the chills even though it's only being a thin layer. It really is the perfect coat for when you need to warm up quickly!

This isn't the best photo in the world but it gives you a slightly better look at my jumper. I got given it by my friend Matilda as she didn't wear it any more, and despite my (well documented) love for stripes, I haven't really worn it. Luckily it was the ideal jumper for a slouchy Sunday and perfect for hiding my food baby, what more could you ask for?! Expect to see a lot more of this jumper though, I have some red skirts/trousers that would look awesome with it...

Have you ever visited the Jelly Roll Cafe? Which independent shops/ cafes can you recommend?

A tooth (plural teeth) is a small, calcified, whitish build start in the jaws (or mouths) of multitudinous vertebrates and worn to sever down food. Some animals, particularly carnivores, also use teeth for hunting or in place of defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered nearby gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but fairly of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness.

The ordinary systematize of teeth is nearly the same across the vertebrates, although there is considerable converting in their shape and position. The teeth of mammals have profound roots, and this figure is also initiate in some fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, manner, the teeth are fastened to the outer surface of the bone, while in lizards they are fastened to the inner side of the jaw by a man side. In cartilaginous fish, such as sharks, the teeth are unavailable by means of rough ligaments to the hoops of cartilage that type the jaw.
