Happy Easter everyone!
This week I haven’t been great at remembering to take photos of my food so this post will be a little bit more text based.
Last Sunday after swimming my Mum and I went to a local Japanese takeaway/cafe. I’ve had takeaway delivered from there before but never eaten in. They do a great build your own option where you pick your own rice/noodles, protein option, vegetables and sauce. I went for thai fried tofu, udon in mild curry sauce with butternut squash and hoi sin aubergine. Mum had the same but with broccoli instead in butternut. The tofu was really crispy and the sauce was tasty and really light too.
On Sunday night I had a bit of a mishmash of things from the freezer. A lorne sausage from More than Meat, garlic dough balls from Tesco’s free from range, hash browns and sweetcorn.
On Monday night I had a Fry’s country pie (chicken style and mushroom) with loads of veg. An easy weeknight dinner.
On Tuesday I made pasta, I had an avocado that needed using up so made a sauce by mashing it up with the juice of a lemon and black pepper. I added red onions, peas, olives and a tofurkey kielbasa sausage I had left over. This is the first time I’ve made avocado pasta sauce but I’ll definitely be doing it again.
On Wednesday we had an issue with our dishwasher so had nothing clean to cook with; I decided to just go to the chip shop rather than do some washing up! I just had chips and salad so not really photo worthy!
On Thursday I went swimming with my Mum. She made a lovely lentil stew but as I had been fasting I was really hungry and had wolfed it down before I remembered to take a photo!
We then went to see Batman V. Superman at the cinema, it was alright, not as bad as some of the reviews made out anyway! By the time we got back to our station it was quite late so we just got a McDonalds, I had the spicy veggie deluxe (no mayo) with fries and a bottle of water.
Yesterday I had a bit of an odd day food wise. I had a late breakfast of hash browns and then grabbed a couple of burritos for my husband and me and a fruit salad which we ate mid-afternoon once I got home from shopping. I wasn’t really hungry enough for a big dinner so just ended up having the other Fry’s pie I had in the freezer.
I took forever to get to sleep last night and coupled with the clocks going forward it was quite late by the time I got up this morning (at least it was still morning!) So I decided to make a brunch frittata using onions, courgette and a couple of slices of violife cheese I had left over. This is one of my fave recipes and great for using stuff up.
I’m enjoying my Easter Sunday afternoon watching the classic 80’s Pretty in Pink. Hope you’re having a good one too!
