I am lucky not to be from the generation/s that boiled the fuck out of vegetables and also over cooked their meat. Mum is an incredible cook! Dad cooks great curries, not so many anymore. He is still great on the BBQ. He does a great baked chicken and home made garlic bread. The more tipsy he is the more garlic. Cause he is usually pissed by the time dinner is served ... and snoring on the couch, we are wading through garlic trying to save ourselves!
Breaky. My homemade Bircher Muesli. Healthy. A great start to the day! 🙂
Soak your required amount of rolled oats over night in freshly squeezed orange juice 🍊. The next morning you'll note the oats have swelled in size. Stir and add fruit. Traditionally apples are added 🍏. I add blueberries and kiwi fruit 🥝. Some times I heat up mixed berries🍓. Bananas are nice too 🍌. Sprinkle cinnamon on top and a dollop of greek yogurt. ❤
Much to Ma and Pa's disgust, my sister is a vegan. She also has tattoos on her shins and a ring through her septum. She's not the type of vegan that won't allow animal products in the fridge in her house though. Her boyfriend is a carnivore! So. It must be love. Am sure there will be a clash once the honeymoon period is over.
A friend's sister is a vegan and will not allow any food that comes from an animal in her house. When her brother cooks for her, she goes through his garbage to check ingredients on packaging he used, to make sure there are no meat products in the ingredients.
I love to give pleasure by way of cooking for my family and friends. So my tattooed, septum pierced sister doesn't miss out.
I have a few tasty vegan recipes I created. Though I don't get why, if they don't like meat, they would want something to resemble or taste like it?
The dishes are often higher in calories and other stuff. Check out the nutritional content in vegan products and compare them to products with tasty meat and other animal ingredients in them.
Will share my vegan curry recipe at some stage. Indian food has quite a few vegetarian dishes anyway. So with a bit of an adjustment - easy peasy. 😊
A weird day. My partner and I got up at 6am to watch the soccer. We had a champagne breakfast. Champagne at 6:30am is a kick start. He cooked bacon and eggs on toasted Turkish bread, which had avocado smeared on and sriracha sauce. Hot chilli sauce! We ate that at 7:30am ... one bottle of bubbles gone. Opened another. Fell asleep. Woke up at midday with a hangover. Now have a boneless leg of lamb marinating in mild Indian spices. Root veggies will accompany with a mint salsa. Hair of the dog at 5pm? Ok.
Tomorrow's feast. I'm doing the Salmon and potato salad.
Turkey, (apple and sausage stuffing), Ham, smoked honey peppercorn Salmon, cranberry conserve, apricot chutney, honey mustard, sauerkraut (the only thing I thank the Chinese for). German potatoe salad, cucumber salad, roasted brussels sprouts, carrots and potatoes.
Desert is Christmas pudding, custard and cream plus fruit salad.
