Meat Free Mondays - 7 Recipes for the Week Ahead (29 February 2016)

Happy Monday everyone! Another busy week has been and gone. The weather has been glorious up here in Scotland. Sunny but bitterly cold, although as I write this it's pelting down with rain outside.

We had a lovely walk yesterday in our local country park and the dogs managed to get nearly all the way round without getting filthy, then they found a lake-sized puddle and jumped in, typical!

I had some lovely news today that Tinned Tomatoes has been shortlisted for the Good Housekeeping Award. I do realise I have little to no chance of winning as Deliciously Ella is on the list too, but it's rather wonderful being on the shortlist and I would like to thank all of you who took the time to vote for me.

Now it's time to plan for the week ahead.
