WIAW – this is fun!!

23 Feb

..though it would have been so much more fun if I’d actually REMEMBERED that it was Shrove Tuesday, a.k.a Pancake Day!!

Jade = 😦

Yup, I forgot all about those pancakes, so maybe I’ll make up for it by starting a pancake Sunday thingy, like so many other bloggers out there 😉 , maybe..

Anyways, here is this week’s WIAW:

Hmm, I think I’ll do Tuesday and Wednesday this week, as I really LOVED my breakfast topping and want to thank..

..Heather of HEAB for this gorgeous Chocolate PB Truffles!! Well actually, I’d like to thank her husband, he really IS a genius, Heather 😀 !!

I followed this lovely breakfast with a lunch of:

Smoked tofu and a big stir-fry consisting of carrots ((of course!!)), spinach, red pepper and chestnut mushrooms.

THEN…. I made lots of these!!:



Home-made Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cups!!

Then Pat came round and we had a different dinner:

My FIRST EVER home-made Socca “pizza”. Can you guess which is mine?? 😉 . I used a pizza sauce from Abel&Cole and topped mine off with grilled courgette, roasted pepper and leftover roasted squash, and mushrooms!! Actually, not pictured is the side-plate I had to use that held my other veggies – the ones that wouldn’t fit on top!! Meanwhile, Pat’s “pizza” was loaded up with lots of cheese, peppers, squash, salami, chicken and a little smiley with mushroom eyes. Pat does NOT like mushrooms one bit and even struggled to eat those little guys!!

Now onto Wednesday!! I had a breakfast of my usual:

Frozen fruits ((in this case, blueberries)) atop a bowl of steaming oats, this time with a green tea in my favourite glass mug ((boring, aren’t I..??))

Now, when I eat frozen blueberries, I CANNOT seem to do so without my lips getting all blue!! How does it get on my lips!!?? Now is it just me or does this happen to other people??

Anyways, onto lunch ..which I forgot to photograph :S oops!! It was a big Marmite-and-cucumber stuffed sandwich alongside a very green apple, which I did snap a photo of:

Then, after a pretty un-eventful day, dinner was:

2 big, fat Quorn sausages with rosemary and garlic roasted parsnips and a WHOLE PUNNET of cherry tomatoes, which I drowned and roasted in balsamic!! This was followed by an unpictured sweet potato slathered in almond butter and cinnamon – the spice of my life!!

Not much else really happened today.. Dad has 2 days off work, so we went to..

the launderette!! Fun, huh?? Not so much..

Later, we took this guy for a walk in the park:

then I walked him back home, whilst Dad drove back in the car.

And apart from that, a LOT of T.V watching commenced. I guess it’s not all-bad. Half of it was The Big Bang Theory, after all 😉 .


Do YOU have any pets??

    We have two pups, and I love The Big Bang Theory. Such a funny show, and really the only television series we watch on a regular basis. Cracks me up every week.

    So glad you liked the truffles. I’d forgotten about that recipe. Thanks for the reminder, and CD will happy to hear his geniusness is spreading throughout the blogosphere. 😉

      Haha, The Big Bang Theory is all I really watch now when I do watch TV. Actually got my Dad into it!!

      They are amazing 🙂 and so simple – just 2 ingredients!! In fact I may have to make them for Easter…. :D. Thank YOU for the reminder, too – I blogged this last year and had forgotten!! That’s great to hear :D.
