SANTA CLARITA DIET
The plot of this addictive series revolves around a wife who has some sort of dramatic transformation and develops a penchant for human flesh . Sounds gruesome and ridiculous ; isn ’ t gruesome , is ridiculous – but in a hugely entertaining way . A stellar performance from A-lister , Drew Barrymore , alongside Timothy Olyphant ( you ’ ll recognise his face , even if you don ’ t recognise his name ), delivers a lighthearted dose of quirky hilarity in every bite-size episode .

DURHAM
Early records suggest the area in which Durham now sits dates back as early as 2000 BC , which means it ’ s had an awfully long time to build up a really strong culture – notably marked by the city ’ s proud cathedral and other Norman architecture that dots its surrounds . Durham ’ s trump card lies on the stage however and the city now lays claim to a phenomenal 82 theatres ; a hub of the arts , it ’ s one of the UK ’ s most cultural cities and a must-explore place for anyone with a lust for music , art , drama and dance .

ME TOO ! HOUMOUS
Here at Sideways Media , we ’ re all obsessed with houmous and it usually finds its way into most lunchtime conversations … Me Too ! Houmous is a vegetarian , gluten-free and kosher brand of the delightful dip that ’ s made over a threeday process guaranteeing optimum quality and a wonderfully fresh flavour that tastes as though it was made in a small Mediterranean kitchen just a few hours prior to eating . Houmous purists should opt for original , but if you ’ re feeling adventurous try jalapeno , lemon and coriander , red chilli , or houmous topped with Egyptian dukkah .
