Can you believe January is pretty much over??? It’s flown by, which is good because I’m not much of a January fan. One thing I will say about having 2 kids under 2 years old is that the days go by quickly! I think (touch wood) I’m in the swing of things with day to day life with the two of them now. Ah, how quickly that may all change. It’s funny how I can go from feeling at my wits end to feeling complete and fulfilled (in family life, that is).
So I figured I owe you more of a food focussed post. I’ve been trying to take more photos of my eats, albeit on my iphone, in order to blog about them. But frequently I fail. Here’s what i’ve remembered to photograph (no surprise they are my healthier meals!).
I’ve taken to eating my lunches from tupperware. This is because a) I try to prepare them in advance, and b) i am either feeding A or she is sleeping on me (the only place she does sleep in the day).
Pies! Oh my gosh. Mr Nice Pie make the best vegan pies! I bought them last summer from their stall at a local street market when visiting my parents. I didn’t get around to eating them so I froze them ready for winter comfort food cravings. They were so flipping good. And Mr Nice Pie is from my part of Wales, next to my hometown. I must get hold of some more, somehow.
These are two of my throw together meals featuring my daily staples of vegetables, rice, tofu and hummus. Never gets old.
Finally, I am still loving Dreena Burton’s Chickpea Ratatouille. Another staple around here.
That concludes some of January’s favourite eats.
I have failed so far with my resolution to try one new recipe a week. I’m hoping February will bring on more success as I am hoping A will have finished her evening long cluster feeding by then (I’m talking feeding from 6ish – 11/midnight, yuh).
What have been your January highlights?
