Long time, no see. Life has been all about soaking up 1:1 time with Theo before the baby arrives. I’m now almost 39 weeks pregnant and so ready to not be pregnant and meet our baby. Patience and sleep are rare things these days.
Anyways, I’m not sure how many more blog posts I’ll publish before the baby arrives so I’m stopping by to share snippets of the latest Vegan Life magazine. This latest issue could not have been published at a better time. I’ve needed some vegan inspiration from outside of the blog world, and once again Vegan Life hit the mark. So many great articles!
Since Christmas will be here before we know it, I’ve been thinking about vegan alternatives for christmas dinner that I can prepare in advance, whip up last minute or just shove in the oven. It’s difficult to plan ahead as I don’t know what life will be like with a newborn and a toddler, nor do I know what our baby’s temperament will be. Luckily, this edition of Vegan Life has lots of inspiration.
Starters and desserts I’m not too worried about since I’m usually happy with fruit for either course, and already have some ideas of how to veganise the popular christmas desserts. But mains, not a clue. Of course, there’s your traditional nut roast but with Theo’s nut allergy I’d rather stay clear of them.
However, this recipe for mushroom and lentil pie looks perfect. If I try it out I’ll be sure to let you know how I get on!
I guess if all else fails I could pull out a vegan Linda McCartney pie or veggie sausages!
