Wonky Veg for the Win

I was in Morrison’s for my grocery shop last week. I had heard before they were doing boxes of wonky veg (the less pretty but perfect good veg that stores usually refuse to sell) but had not come across them before that day. I don’t usually shop at Morrison’s but they started selling vegan pasties… Continue reading Wonky Veg for the Win

Menu plan 17/9 – 23/9/2020

I guess I kid of went quiet for a little while there. Have not been feeling the motivation as of late. My readership seems to have taken a nose dive lately so I have been feeling a bit bad about my writing. Anyway, I am working on my grocery list so will share my plan… Continue reading Menu plan 17/9 – 23/9/2020

Weekly menu 10/09 – 16/09/2020

This week is going to be mostly shopping from my freezer and pantry. My plan last week went out the window a bit. I cooked for the family but did other stuff with what I had. I have found myself with lots of food leftover so we need to work through that. 1. Steamed vegetables… Continue reading Weekly menu 10/09 – 16/09/2020

Em plans to put her potatoes in a wrap with sausagemeat, eggs and salsa as breakfast burritos like w had back in the US. Alan… Continue reading Country potatoes

What I Eat on a Walking Day

My walk this weekend was only about 4 miles so not enough to be concerned about eating lots of extra calories or snacking during the walk. The temperature was slightly chilly for me without my jacket but hot with it (just a little after resistant cycling jacket). Though there were my most dreaded hills it… Continue reading What I Eat on a Walking Day

Bread

Sweet potato and Spinach Curry

Curry is a great dish as you can pretty much put anything you like in there and have a spicy, rich meal. I made this curry for the sake of Sunday dinner but when I posted the picture on Instagram someone asked for the recipe. So I guess the recipe must be done which means… Continue reading Sweet potato and Spinach Curry

Cornbread

I didn't grow up eating cornbread. While living in Texas when my kids were small my youngest, Katie, fell in love with cornbread prompting me to have a go a couple of times.  Still wasn't a big fan and stopped trying to Katie's chagrin.  I only decided to have another go because I was making… Continue reading Cornbread

Sauces

Pasta Sauce

Who doesn’t love spaghetti covered in tomato-y goodness? I know I do. In fact this was the meal my daughter specifically asked me to make this week so it must be good. I have been known to buy sauces but they are never quite right and I always need to buy several jars to feed… Continue reading Pasta Sauce
