So what would I do with £750 to plan a big night in? This is my entry into Little Stuffs Blogger competition in association with Two Little Fleas.
I'm moving into my new house next week and currently we have a small tv, so I'd love to treat the whole family to a bigger television so we could spend our night in watching some great movies.

I love this mexican style Cabo range from John Lewis. I'd spend around £130 on this.

I love to cook so I'd be happy to make the food. We'd have Chicken and Mango Salad.
250g pack cherry tomatoes, sliced or quartered
2 tbsp finely chopped jalapeños
small handful coriander, roughly chopped
juice 1 lime, plus halves to serve
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
4 cooked chicken breasts, torn into bite-sized shreds
2 Little Gem lettuces, torn into bite-sized pieces
1 red pepper, deseeded and sliced
1 ripe mango, stoned, peeled and diced
handful tortilla chips, broken up a little
Put the cherry tomatoes, jalapeños, coriander, lime juice, onion and oil in a large bowl with some seasoning.
Pop the remaining ingredients, except the tortilla chips, on top of the dressing. Gently mix the salad together to coat.
Sprinkle the tortilla chips over the top and serve immediately with lime halves.
Of course I would have to make a cake too, this one would fit the menu

Finally, with the kids tucked up snug in bed I'd settle in front of my new tv and watch some of my favourite programs like The Walking Dead, or Under The Dome. My big night in wouldn't be finished just yet though. I have the perfect ending right here.

All this and food comes to £750, lots for the whole family to enjoy. In fact, we might never go out again :)
