What’s in my lunch box? Seasonally new

 

The thing I really like about trying to eat in a seasonal manner is how the variety in my diet massively increases as the summer gets closer. I was very happy when I got the market last week and was able to pick up new potatoes, asparagus, and radishes. This was a nice easy lunch to throw together with some tofu and a few bits from my allotment.

Salad – boiled new potatoes, boiled asparagus, raw spinach, raw rocket, radishes, fried tofu (Dragonfly brand – and a particularly tasty batch). Dressing made with oil, cider vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper.

Rhubarb crumble – home grown rhubarb topped with flour, brown sugar, oil, cinnamon, and ginger

Chelmsford Veg Up

Saturday saw the first meeting of the Chelmsford Veg Up group at the Ideas Hub.

I’d billed the event as a meet up, but quickly discovered the good people of Essex love a pun. So in order to avoid endless meet/meat jokes we’re embracing Veg Up.

I sat there just before noon wondering if I would get any takers so I was delighted when people began arriving, and after a moment of awkwardness the conversation vegan to flow.

Attendees quickly got to know each other as they shared the best vegan places in the area, and vividly described favourite dishes. Ideas for activities flowed, and included a Chelmsford vegan website, meals out, and a pot luck.

The group will be meeting again on 24 May from noon until 2pm at the Chelmsford Ideas hub. We also plan to visit Colchester Vegan Fair on 10th May.

Why not come and join us? Vegans, and the vegan curious welcome.

What’s in my lunch box? Party bag

I went to a baby shower yesterday which turned out to be rather good. It was delightful to catch up with various friends, see what gifts the mother-to-be had received (everyone bought a copy of a favourite childhood book), and I particularly enjoyed partaking of the buffet.

The lovely organisers had gone to the trouble of including vegan food, and labelling it as such. They also gave me several bags of leftovers to bring home so my plans for making lunch box dahl flew out the window. I devoted the time to reading the latest Joe Hill book instead (definitely not suitable for small children).

From top right:

  • Rhubarb crumble – to be served with a spoonful of vegan vanilla yoghurt (more leftovers)
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Radishes
  • Tofu sausage chunks
  • Raw carrots, pepper, and baby corn – to eat with hummus

To read:

Gentlemen prefer blondes by Anita Loos

This is an absolutely charming read. I’m liking the way Lorelei and Dorothy don’t seem to let anything stand in their way. They have no self doubt, and seem like little rays of sunshine. When something blocks them they just take a break and appear elsewhere.

Follow Me! Follow Me! Follow Me!

Greetings! I’m Annastasia

I'm bit keen on the colour green and like to ramble on about food, cooking, veganism, refashioning, sewing, clothes, list making, music, reading and anything else that pops up in my overcrowded existence! I'm also one half of Ink drops boxes, stationery by the boxful, dropped through your letterbox.
