Veggie Lunch

The very next time I start to moan about having to go to town or about how much I hate going shopping… please remind me of how much fun I am having with two full salad drawers in my fridge.

I spent a joyful morning in the kitchen today, making a blue cheese and broccoli quiche and some salads to go with it: some giant couscous with a simple oil dressing and herbs and spring onions; a rocket and beetroot salad with apples, walnuts and celery in an apple juice, maple syrup and mustard dressing; and a confection of green beans, baby corn and mushrooms dressed with a garlicky-sesame hemp oil, honey and and cider vinegar dressing.

Mega calories, I am afraid and nowhere near as healthy as it appears. Delicious, though and that’s what counts in this household not, I’m afraid, waistlines.

I made enough for about 6 people, so we shall be revisiting this meal at tea time. All these years and I still have not learned to cook for 2.

After a couple of very long posts, time and energy were lacking for coming here to write and as little else had happened other than a shopping delivery or two, it seemed unimportant.Also spending far too much time at Facebook, which I am trying to give up but it keeps onContinue readingHere, there, everywhere – and nowhere at all

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
