Wow! What a week’s it’s been! I’ve had some fantastic food and I can’t wait to share it with you. On Monday I made this gorgeous tagine using Spiced! North African spice mix. It was quite spicy for me but the sweet potatoes added a nice sweetness. I paired it with some amaranth.
On Tuesday I started the day right with avocado on toast, you can’t go wrong really after that!
I take part in events for Discover Risk which is an initiative from the Chartered Insurance Institute to teach students about the risk industry and what opportunities there are. I met a student through one of these event and arranged for him to come into my office and spend a day with my team to learn what we do. We took him out for lunch at Pizza Express. Most of the boys had giant calzones, I went for the Bosco salad subbing the mozzarella for olives and taking out the honey mustard dressing. I drizzled it in some garlic oil to make up for the lack of dressing.
The guys from left to right – Eamonn, Adam, Felix, Jordan and Michael. (Simon managed to escape this shot!)
On Tuesday evening I kept on the Italian theme and had spaghetti bolognese topped with nooch (or nutritional yeast for the uninitiated!)
On Wednesday I went swimming with my Mum. Her partner, Chris had made these lovely pasties, using stuffing mix, carrots and swede as the filling and serving them with roasted vegetables.
I was trying to use up a few things on Thursday and Ollie had made some rice and peas so I paired that with a spicy Quorn burger, onion, and beetroot and ended up with pink rice!
I had some fab food over the weekend on our trip to Brighton! If you haven’t seen the reviews of the various restaurants already you can check them out in this post.
I finished off the weekend this evening with a hash I made from potato, peppers, onions, mushrooms and Vegusto farmhouse sausages which I bought in Brighton. I spiced it up with some cayenne pepper, paprika, liquid smoke and some Italian herb mix. It was quite spicy as I think I overdid the cayenne! I really enjoyed it and I think it’s the closest I’ve come to one of my old favourites, corned beef hash. I think next time I might crumble up the sausages more to get a similar texture.
Luckily I’ve been doing lots of walking this week to counteract all this food! Hopefully its had an effect!
