Squeaky Bean

Love the name of this product! Let’s start out with…I am not affiliated with this product or any other at this time. I just tried it and thought I would let others know about it. Now if someone wanted to send me free vegan foods to review HONESTLY I would not stop them. I amContinue reading “Squeaky Bean”

Vegetable Barley Soup

When I checked the clearance produce section at Tesco I found a vegetable soup mix for 20p (12 cents US) as well as sliced spring greens 25p (14 cents US) so I decided to make some vegetable soup. I still had barley at home in addition to some red lentils, spices and stock cubes soContinue reading “Vegetable Barley Soup”

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 pastiesContinue reading “Wonky Veg for the Win”

What’s happening right now

Sorry I have been quiet. Feeling a bit overwhelmed lately. So much change going on for me and not enough of me to spread around. Something had to give and to be honest I think just about everything gave in the end. My exercise stopped. My studies I am just about maintaining but I haveContinue reading “What’s happening right now”

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 planContinue reading “Menu plan 17/9 – 23/9/2020”

Grand Union at Fenny Stratford

Fenny Stratford is now part of Bletchley which is part of Milton Keynes. Watling Street which was the old Roman road going north from London goes right through it. There is even buried remains of a Roman villa just as one drives into Fenny Stratford. Another interesting and useless bit of trivia: the village wasContinue reading “Grand Union at Fenny Stratford”

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 vegetablesContinue reading “Weekly menu 10/09 – 16/09/2020”

First time back to running

Last year I ran the Swindon Half Marathon. I had intended to run the MK winter half as well but my ankle was injured so running 13.1 miles wasn’t an option in December. Then I was working a physical job and I was only running for parkrun on Saturdays. By the time lockdown started inContinue reading “First time back to running”

Country potatoes

Emily loves potatoes. She would live on potatoes alone if I let her….just mashed potatoes! Country potatoes are more of a cross between mashed potato and chips in my opinion. Em plans to put her potatoes in a wrap with sausagemeat, eggs and salsa as breakfast burritos like w had back in the US. AlanContinue reading “Country potatoes”

Roasted chickpeas

Snacks have been a frustration for us at times. I really love crunchy snacks and this has been a struggle. Popcorn is an option but plain is boring. Veggies and hummus is nice but doesn’t quite hit that chruchy snack craving for me. Roasted chickpeas have been a great option. You can do a slewContinue reading “Roasted chickpeas”
