    Homemade veggie burgers (batch and buns from freezer)

    Mission accomplished! It's looking pretty empty in there!

    No vege!?!!

    Hopefully within the next few months - I think I'm a bit ahead of myself emptying the freezer and packing.

    I literally have nothing else to do - I'm sooo bored!!

    No veg! It's so wrong!

    *There was an onion, a carrot & a stick of celery in with the beef to make the gravey, and 1 leek in the horseradish mash. Apparently that's enough veg.

    Tomorrow I'm making Chinese style pork steaks, with pinch of nom savoury rice (Chinese style) so I will add extra veg to make up for today.

    We had courgette, spinach and halloumi salad.
    Found the recipe in a magazine. The recipe included onions, asparagus, avocado, cherry tomatoes, all the vegetables we love.
    We’d cooked a spatchcock chicken but to be honest, the salad was so lovely it could have been a meal by itself.
    The combination of hot cooked vegetables combined with the cold salad vegetables was just divine.

    For my dinner (for that is the meal I have in the middle of the day) I have had courgette rogan josh. Not vegan as I used coconut greek yoghurt, but very nice.

    I don't usually have dinner (lunch!) but for the last few days I have been irrationally STARVING all the time!

    I don't have any food in (some idiot ate everything out the freezer!) all I had was chilli, garlic and pasta.

    I went there. It was delicious but I feel I may regret it later when I feel sick...

    Me too, I want takeaway, not homemade though!

    Tonight we are having Chinese style pork steaks, & pinch of noms savoury rice (with Chinese spices instead of curry spices).

    I've gone right off food at the moment, today's effort so far has been 3 cups of black coffee!

    Sausages and mash with LOTS of peas!

    Husband won't be home until really late so I ate without him - I picked him up a reduced 99p bargain bin pepperoni pizza from ASDA earlier so I will be in the good books for a while!

    I think he'll just be glad to eat something that isn't a vegetable....

    Preprepared Mushroom Steaks with Lentils, Smoked Paprika and Garlic Cream and chips tonight as nobody has the energy left to set up the BBQ. Raspberrys picked last night and ice cream to follow. Might open a bottle of red as well.

    Homemade pizza last night!

    Normally husband makes the dough but he was in a boring meeting so I had a go! Not bad if I say so myself!

    Haven't eaten anything tonight as I've been on the phone chatting to a friend all evening!

    Off to raid the cupboards!
