Week #41

Last week was a funny old week.   It started well but as of Wednesday it went a a bit downhill as Theo got tonsilitis for what I think is the 4th or 5th time since April.  Poor bug was suffering.  Despite this, and as strange as it sounds, I had a pretty good week.

Monday was a chilled one.  I made one of my default store cupboard dinners – chana masala.


Never fails to deliver.  We usually get our veg box delivered on a Tuesday so by Monday our fridge is always rather bare.

Tuesday night I attended my twice monthly local crafts group.  It’s with a great bunch of women.  We just bring our crafts to chat and craft over cups of tea.  I always end up bringing my crotchet with me as I’m determined to finish my blanket soon and I can chat whilst doing it without ending up in a tiz.


Oh, and I had a great slice of vegan lemon pound cake with my peppermint tea.  Score.

The only good thing about Wednesday was these accidentally vegan finds from Aldi:


The mint thins remind me of christmas (which is far too early to think about).

Thursday night I went to my first ever local vegans meet up!


It was so great to chat with fellow vegans.  It can feel a bit lonely in every day life as there are few/if any vegans I feel like I have really connected with.  Can’t wait for the next one.

Friday night I trial ran a dahl recipe I hope to share with you soon.  The rest of the weekend was busy!  Saturday night we treated ourselves to takeaway;


followed by a Sunday morning coffee date.



I adore that top and those cat leggings on Anwen, and my two curly haired boys.

I’m not sure if you guys have noticed but I’ve created a new tab at the top.  I’m starting an “Easy Being Vegan” series of posts.  My aim is to help people navigate the vegan lifestyle, which I feel really passionate about.  There are a couple up already and I’ve also detailed ones that I hope to add at some point soon.  I’d like to say that there will be an EBV post every *** day.  Alas, I’m sure you guys know me well enough by now to know that I just cannot do blog post schedules.  I don’t know what it is but it never works for me.  I’m the same with meal plans too.  Ah well.  Know thy self, right.
