Meat Free Monday Vegetarian Recipes

mushrooms


Well it's Monday again. Wasn't it just yesterday I was saying that to you?

Where does the time go?



This week Cooper is back at school. He has was very eager to go back. All his friends are still in his class, but he has a new teacher.

On his first day back we (well I say we, but I just advised him and and dealt with the oven) made chocolate cake. It's become our family tradition to make a back-to-school chocolate cake on the first day of a new school year. The next day he took it into school to share with his friends. I''m sure his teacher was delighted to divide up and share such a gooey chocolate cake to lots of children in white shirts. Whoops!

Enough about cake and our week, let's have a look at another seven delicious recipes for this week's Meat Free Mondays. Hopefully it will inspire you to cook vegetarian more than one day this week, although one day is an excellent start.

Purple Stag Cocktail Recipe

Purple Stag Cocktail Recipe

This is the second in my series of drinks posts. I realised I share very few drink recipes or recommendations apart from smoothies, so this week I am sharing some tasty summer drinks. 

In my last post I shared 7 refreshing soft and non-alcoholic drinks for summer. They are great if you are pregnant, it's your turn to drive or you are just trying to cut down on how many units you are drinking each week.

I this post I say to hell with that and share some alcohol. Well do have to cover both sides don't I?

7 Refreshing Soft and Non-Alcoholic Drinks for Summer

7 Refreshing Soft and Non-Alcoholic Drinks for Summer

I share lots of recipes with you, but they're mostly recipes for meals. While summer lasts I thought it would be good to share a series of posts on summer drinks.

Now I've probably mentioned I like a glass of wine with dinner, but I also love refreshing summer drinks. I mean who doesn't love a glass or two of Pimms?

But what if you are the designated driver at a summer BBQ or party, pregnant or just trying to cut back on alcoholic drinks? Often all you can expect is to be offered some fizzy juice or a glass of water.

We can do better than that! I have seven refreshing and delicious summer drinks that you can enjoy and not feel like you are missing out.



Meat Free Mondays - Summer 2017



Happy Monday!

How are you? How has your week been?

Our week has been full of fun for my wee boy and the last week of the summer holidays too.

He's been out on his scooter, playing in the park, eye bombing, playing board games, walking on the beach and today he went to a animal handling session. He's had a haircut in a hipster barbers and now he's tucked up snug in bed ready for an early start tomorrow for his first day of school.





Now we've caught up it's time for the recipes.

You may eat vegetarian every day or just once a week, whichever way you eat, enjoy this week's recipes and tune in next Monday for a new batch of recipes.


Smashed Potato Salad with Pesto Dressing

Smashed Potato Salad with Dairy-Free Pesto Dressing

I eat a lot more salads in the summer, even when the weather is bleugh. 

Sometimes we have a salad like this smashed potato salad or a pasta salad for dinner (like we did last night), for lunch it might be a couscous salad and at other meals you will often find salad on the side. 

In fact I think we eat more salad vegetables than any other type at this time of year. Salads are so quick and easy and a lot less cooking too.
