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 so… Continue 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 pasties… Continue reading Wonky Veg for the Win

Lifestyle

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 have… Continue reading What’s happening right now

Menu Plans

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

Walking

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 was… Continue 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 vegetables… Continue reading Weekly menu 10/09 – 16/09/2020

Running

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 in… Continue 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. Alan… Continue reading Country potatoes

Snacks

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 slew… Continue reading Roasted chickpeas

Weekly Menu 27/08/2020

Last week I promised a review of how my menu plan worked along with my plan for this week. I will go over breakfast, lunch and dinners separately. The breakfasts were completely different to my 0lan. I had spotted bagels at the store and had that with peanut butter. The plan was smoothies but when… Continue reading Weekly Menu 27/08/2020
