Hello there and happy Friday!
I would like to say that my weekend has almost begun… but I’m on a late shift today and a late shift on Sunday. But at least I have Saturday off.
Here are some food highlights:
I have to say, this meal was awesome. I roasted courgette, parsnip, cherry tomatoes and red pepper in olive oil and cajun spice blend. Once cooked I added in ready-to-eat marinated tofu and cooked rice. Then dressed it with homemade salad dressing and mixed it all together. At the moment I’m a massive fan of just chucking meals together with no recipe or plan. When it comes to baking, it’s important to be precise. But when making other delights I prefer to throw caution to the wind.
Sunday lunchtime our friend John (him and his wife are my only blog readers who I know in real life, thanks guys!) came over for lunch. So I whipped up a soup with the same logic as the above meal. 700g of whatever veg is lying around (including a small onion, chopped), 2 cloves of crushed garlic, 1tsp chilli powder. Simmer together in 1 litre of stock (veg or chicken stock). Once the veg is soft leave to cool a bit. Then blend away with a generous handful or two of fresh basil. Reheat to serve; job’s a good ‘un!
You may notice the bread and cheese on the table. Unfortunately, these were not for me. My soup was accompanied by rice cakes topped with peanut butter. Dessert was naturally, one of my cookies.
Out of all the recipes I have created and showcased on this blog, I think these cookies are the most regularly made and consumed. Sad but true.
Dessert also included…
I know this looks like baby food, and could probably pass as baby food. However, it is a vanilla soy dessert and stewed apple with a bit of agave. This reminded me of the apple and custard dessert that I used to have over my nanna’s as a child. Simple comfort food for winter.
There you have just some of the foodie highlights of my week! What are your foodie highlights?
