Meat Free Mondays - 7 Recipes for the Week Ahead (10 April 2017)

Happy Monday my friends! It's Meat Free Monday again and time for seven delicious new recipes to help inspire you to make at least some of your week meat-free. You may find a few bonus recipes at the bottom too.

So this is where I usually tell you about the last week and what we got up to. It's school holidays here in Scotland, so Cooper has been sharing his time between home and his grandparents house. I think I can safely say he's been enjoying the free time. Lots of dog walks, games, some time coding and Cooper and I took a two day trip over to Edinburgh for the Science Festival. We stayed in a hotel, did some experiments and generally had a blast. Our highlight had to be Dr Bunhead and his eggcellent eggsplosions at the National Museum of Scotland. It was exciting, funny, loud and sit on the edge of your seat nerve-wracking.

Did you do anything fun in the last week?

Now it's time for the recipes.

    That science fair sounds wonderful; now my lot are grown up, and now I no longer teach, I never get to do cool stuff like that. Hard life, eh? LOL!

    On the plus side, my oldest friend came over from Britain on Saturday to spend a few days with us here in Slovenia. We've been friends for more than 40 years but although we've kept in touch, we haven't actually seen each other in person for almost two and a half decades. As you can imagine, we had loads of catching up to do, and a lot of fun. Plus we had several days of photoshoots because we're going to be part of a(nother) exhibition in Blighty! Woohoo!

    Tomorrow, K and I are driving to Bosnia to spend Easter weekend in Sarajevo.

    I'm going to need a holiday to recover from all this activity! Ha ha!

    1. It sounds like you are going to have some fun. It's great catching up with friends, especially if you haven't seen them for a while. Have a great time and share some photos on Facebook :)

  6. Another lovely roundup. I love the burger and both veggie loaves. I have just linked up my second veggie recipe and I hope I did it all correctly this time (apologies for lack of link back last time, newbie and still learning) :)
