I’ve lost a bit of my blogging mojo over the last few weeks. This hasn’t been helped by the issues I’ve had with WordPress losing my posts or only publishing them in part. Hopefully I’ll find some inspiration and start posting a bit more! I’ve been having some fabulous food that’s definitely not the issue!
Bolognese or chilli is an easy dinner for us if there’s not much left in the fridge. There’s usually a ropey pepper and a few mushrooms and I always have chopped tomatoes and beans in the cupboard and usually veggie mince in the freezer. I used the leftovers for lunch on Tuesday in jacket potato from the canteen at work.
On Tuesday I had my monthly catch up with my friend Jo. We took a short bus ride to the Ethiopian Andu Cafe in Dalston. I’d read good things online about this little vegan cafe and we weren’t disappointed. We shared a platter of dishes made of lentils and vegetables served with injera. It was all delicious and filling and a steal at £12 for the whole lot! Afterwards we stopped by a ice cream parlour and I had a gorgeous blueberry and mango sorbet cone.
On Wednesday I went to do some market research in Holborn, as I had a bit of time beforehand I stopped by Poetry Cafe for some food. I had some summer vegetable soup and a slice of banana and walnut cake. Simple things, done well.
With the incentive I earned doing the market research we had a takeaway on Thursday. I went for a couple of starters with satay tofu skewers and deep fried aubergine balls with sweet and sour sauce. I love these dishes and our local Chinese takeaway never disappoint.
On Friday and Saturday I just had little bits and pieces, although I did visit the Asian supermarket so I’ve got a few bits for future meals.
It was my Grandad’s 87th birthday in the week so we had a get together at my Aunt’s house on Sunday. My vegan Sister-in-law and I were well catered for. We had Indian spiced chickpea burgers from Linda McCartney with harissa roasted vegetables, couscous, rice and salad. It was all really lovely and I didn’t need much in the evening to keep me going!
I’m off work this week and going to visit a friend for a couple of days before we have guests ourselves so it’s going to be a busy one!
Have a good week!
