RE: so what are we having?


I accidentally put a tiny bit of cinnamon in the white sauce for my gnocchi. Actually works really well, surprisingly!

Broccoli and meatless balls with italian-style pesto tomato sauce with olives. One of my favourite dishes. The vegan low-carb cruise continues!

I made a bento for dinner. I haven't made them for a long time so it's really messy but it was fun, tasty and surprisingly really filling.

I posted a photo and what was in the bento here!

Camargue red rice salad with pomelo, avocado, pepper, carrot and courgette in a coriander, mint, sesame, lime, agave and sriracha dressing, topped with candied smoked paprika pecans.

Just had to show off because it was SO delicious!

That sounds AMAZING!

I've made my lasagne for the first time in months and months and Jack is over the moon. :)

CANDIED PAPRIKA PECANS?! WHAT.

Fish pie! And a little bit of poached salmon for the cats, because today they are one!

Pecans aplenty.

A tablespoon or two of melted butter.

A good few tablespoons of brown sugar (to make a nice paste)
Half a teaspoon of smoked paprika.
A nice sprinkle of salt.

Mix everything together, tip into a baking tray and stick in the oven for about ten minutes. Mike and I nearly ate a whole bag of these between us the other day, they're absolutely heavenly.

^Happy birthday, Alka's cats! Alkats?

I recreated my favourite takeaway dish, vegetable katsu curry ^_^ Saw the veg katsu curry bakes at Tesco so it was a real lazy meal, but so tasty. Veg katsu curry bake (the sauce & crushed peanut bits were spot on) with sticky rice, broccoli, spicy pickled veg and chopped up gherkins. Yum yum. Sometimes simple things are the best.

I just had two amazing slices of toasted sourdough from a local bakery topped with Marmite, avocado, coriander, salt, pepper and lemon juice. It was so delicious (and the avocado was so perfect) that I want to cry.

I made my morning porridge with orange juice this morning as an experiment, and it was surprisingly good!

^^^I wonder if it would work with apple juice.

I made the mistake of doing my food shop when hungry this week, so now my drawer in the fridge is full and I've had to spill onto other people's shelves. But last night for dinner I roasted some baby potatoes and vegetables with garlic and olive oil and herbs and it was amazing. I was really sad when I'd finished it all.

^ Porridge made with apple juice is getting quite close to being Bircher muesli, so I'm sure it would be pretty tasty!

I had caramelised banana and peanut butter porridge for breakfast this morning. It was HEAVENLY. Will 100% be repeating the experience tomorrow morning, even despite my stupidly early start.

Tonight I made crispy polenta squares with roasted cherry tomatoes and a spiced Mexican-esque salad. That was amazing too, but I think caramelised banana porridge takes the crown for best meal of the day.

I made houmous for the first time in ages, and baba ghanoush for the first time in ever, and I've eaten so much food as a vehicle to shovel it into my face that I feel rather unwell!

I'm doing herb crusted chicken (cheating by using the maggi papyrus things that were 50p at tesco) with pepper and mushroom rice tonight. I am looking forward to the noms.

I'm eating a really simple spaghetti, just some sundried tomato paste, garlic puree, torn basil leaves and freshly ground black pepper... Oh god so good!

That porridge sounds amazing. Share your wisdom please, Annis! I need to experience that porridge ASAP.

I made paella (boring but still yum, tried to jazz it up a bit) and an apricot crumble. Crumbles are not my area, I'm not sure I've actually ever made one before, but I'm honestly so pleased with how this came out! I adapted a recipe and it worked so well. It's flipping delicious. It's not often that I'm 100% pleased with something I've made, I tend to always nitpick and find things I could have done better, but this is kind of perfection. Excuse my bragging, I'm just so pleased! It's for my family (as is the paella) so I hope they enjoy it, I might have to steal a piece.

I just had a fish sandwich. Nothing fancy. I think I want to do pulled pork sometime this week, but my mum doesn't like it.

I made a really tasty slow cooker hotpot thing tonight! Beef, four types of mushrooms (!), pak choi, potatoes, runner beans, water chestnuts, cabbage, and a nice from-scratch sauce/soup base. I've never cooked beef before so I'm glad I used the slow cooker, it came out incredibly tender ^_^ Quick plum crumble for dessert.

Spicy veggie soup, cheesy spicy flatbreads, and a rhubarb sponge with a crumble topping. I just kind of winged it for all three things but I'm pleased with how it all turned out, especially the dessert.

Making an aubergine lasagne type deal, but with butternut squash and puy lentils instead of meat. Smells yummers so far!

 I've been meaning to try making baba ghanoush vor about a year now! But whenever I have aubergine at home I just grill it and eat it, haha. I had a recipe I got from a friend somewhere but god knows where, would you care to share yours? 

 

Noodles. Lots and lots of noodles.
