Round up of the week’s food 160403

This week feels like its been quiet but I’ve actually done quite a bit.

On Sunday my Husband made this lovely mushroom risotto which I also had for lunch for Monday. Risotto is one of those meals that often tastes better the next day.

On Monday I went to my Aunt’s for our annual Easter Egg hunt. I left the hunting to the younger ones and my Grandad and enjoyed some sausage rolls and mini dark chocolate eggs my Sister-in-law had brought.

For dinner I had some vegan egg, beans and as my Husband was having chips  with his dinner I thought why not!

On Tuesday I had a falafel salad for lunch. Falafel House is a popular choice for my team at work, its completely vegetarian and often has queues out the door.

On Tuesday evening I had sausage and mash with vegetables. When I added this on instagram I had comments about the lack of gravy. I’m not a massive gravy fan unless its full of mushrooms or onions and I couldn’t be bothered with all that on a weekday evening!

On Wednesday  I bought some smoked tofu on the way home, from Holland and Barratt. Dragonfly Foods is one of my favourite tofu brands and its great when its on offer in H&B. I used this in a pasta dish with onions, peppers and aubergine pesto. My Husband isn’t usually a massive fan of tofu but he really enjoyed this meal too.

On Thursday we had an Indian takeaway. I went for saag dhal (spinach and lentils) and channa (chickpea) masala. I also had a paratha (layered bread). I’m not a great lover of rice but I was hoping to nab a bit of my Husband’s, unfortunately he had got one with keema (minced lamb) in it.

On Friday I had lunch from a local Ghanaian eatery. Chop Pot has a few vegan options which are clearly labelled, I tried the beans as a taster but they were too spicy for me. I decided to go for the spinach and rice with plantain dumplings. It was really tasty but the heat in the spinach did grow as I was eating it and I ended up only managing to finish half. I wish I had a greater heat tolerance! However I may go back just for the dumplings. I forgot to take a picture of my food, but here’s the menu.

On Friday we headed down to my in-laws. On Friday I had a nut burger and chips prepared by my Father-in-law.

I got some Swedish Glace chocolate dairy free dessert from Waitrose and served it in a tiny bowl so I didn’t have too much!

On Saturday I had a fab breakfast of avocado on toast with some Alpro vanilla soya yogurt and hot chocolate made with oat milk. It really set me up for the day!

Saturday was Autism Awareness Day and we went to a charity “Princess Awaken” event in aid of Autism All Stars in Kent. My 3 year old niece had a great time meeting all the princesses and waving at the stormtroopers but got a little scared if they came too close! She wasn’t too sure about getting her face painted so I volunteered to go first, but even that didn’t convince her! I did get some smiles when we were walking down the High Street later on!

On Saturday evening the family had tandoori chicken and rice, so I had mine with some Linda McCartney sausages.

Today I went for afternoon tea made by Jhenn AKA The Vegan Ronin. I’m going to write up a full review but here is a sneak peak of what was served. It was all amazing and I am so full right now I definitely won’t need any dinner!

Hope you’ve all had a good week!
