Meat Free Mondays - 7 Recipes for the Week Ahead (08 February 2016)

Another week whizzed by. I really don't know where time goes. What did I achieve in the last week?

Well I went to work and out to the pub for dinner after work on Monday night. I had a couple of days without my fitbit as I forgot to charge it and on Wednesday I created the most wonderful chocolate chip vegan pancakes. I can't believe I got them right first time. Cooper and Graham ate them in a flash and Cooper asked for more. Cooper spent the weekend with my parents, being spoiled rotten and I had baking club last night. So quite a full week.

It's Monday again and time for another 7 featured recipes and a few bonus recipes too. I hope you find some inspiration for the week ahead.

Quick Vegan Lunchtime Green Soup for One

Quick Vegan Lunchtime Green Soup for One. Made in a blender in minutes. So fresh and full of flavour. It tastes like spring is here. www.tinnedtomatoes.com

I love that I can throw a lunchtime soup together quickly without the labour-intensive chopping that usually comes with making soup. I find it so boring, standing in the kitchen chopping for what seems like forever.

I didn't even have to chop an onion to make this soup! How good is that?

Meat Free Mondays - 7 Recipes for the Week Ahead (01 February 2016)

Happy Monday! 
In fact Happy Meat Free Monday!

I hope you had a great week. My last week was hell as I was busy doing my tax return and giving away all my money, but I had a great weekend.
A visit to my parents and a meal out with them, then a surprise birthday trip to Copenhagen. Cooper and I did well not spilling the beans to Graham for over a month. Blooming heck it was difficult! 
The highlight of Copenhagen for Cooper was the Lego shop, the underground and a Nutella crepe from a street seller. For Graham it was the whole surprise trip and would have been a record shop we traipsed to, had it not shut early. For me it was the colours of the buildings and the sheer beauty of the architecture.

Now it's back to the workday week and time to plan menus again. Luckily some rather talented blogger have sent over some meals for us to try.

Winter Mixed Berry Smoothie

Winter Mixed Berry Smoothie made with frozen berries (raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and blueberries), teamed with clementimes and winter spices.

I got into a bit of a bad habit of only making green smoothies. I love them so much. They are always so delicious and such a beautiful colour, but I sensed my boys were perhaps getting a bit fed up with all the green. So it was time for a change.
