What a week. I had tears and tantrums and an embarrassing encounter concerning a pool table trick, an osteopath, and a retro ladygarden. All mine. How was yours?
This week is National Vegetarian Week in the UK and my girls have asked if we can participate. Nightmare. Now don't get me wrong, I am a big vegetable fan and we usually have a couple of meatless meals every week, but I do think you have to have a good source of fresh produce and not everyone is lucky enough to be near a farmer's market or fabulous greengrocer. Maybe a veg box delivery service could be the answer for people that don't.
This one Kitty made yesterday and we are having it tonight Spicy Chickpea Stew, probably with some rice and pita bread.
Busy day for all of us and I will be dashing out to my new Tai Chi class before dinner, woohoo, so it will be Tomato and Red Pepper soup and Jalepeno Cornbread from the freezer.
One of my favourites, Mushrooms on Toast and maybe a tomato and red onion salad on the side.
I'm not a big fan of vegetarian dishes that try to mimic meat dishes, you know the soy mince, fake bacon etc, I'd rather have a baked potato. But I think we might have a go at these,
Epic Crispy Quinoa Burgers, you eat them with the sweet potatoes fries INSIDE the burger! Epic indeed!
We would normally have fish, but tonight I think I'll just see what veg is looking good and treat it like fish, steamed or pan fried and served with lots of lemon juice and herb butter. Think asparagus, courgettes and char grilled peppers, maybe even add some shards of Parmesan and some good sourdough bread
Enjoy the week ahead and I hope you try some veggie dishes as main courses
