I read somewhere today that this has officially been the coolest summer for nearly 30 years.
“No sh*t, Sherlock”, thought I as I made myself put on another jumper, man up and resist the temptation to put the heating on. In August.
It’s Wednesday though, and rubbish summer or not, that means…..
Bless Jenn, not even Hurricane Irene could stop her getting the WIAW on!
Mine started in a very autumnal way. The return of hot porridge, cooked a la carrot cake again, but with a grated apple added too. That meant there was hardly enough room or water to cook the oats – but it was still delicious.
I added vanilla Munchy Seeds and stirred some yoghurt in as an attempt to recreate cream cheese icing. It was an unsuccessful attempt, but full marks for trying, I feel :-)
Snackage was bought by my lovely friend Laura:
An Eat Natural nutty bar. Mine was saved for home scoffage but Laura ate hers in the car. Jessica, in the back, was less than impressed that she didn’t get any but something tells me big chunky nuts (minds out of the gutter please!) aren’t exactly ideal snackage for a one-year-old… :-)
I was too hungry/greedy to record lunch, except for pudding (and coffee):
But pudding is the most important bit of any meal, after all :-)
For dinner, I’d found a random half-bag of whole buckwheat in the cupboard and it looked as if it needed a purpose in life. My default setting seems to be “if in doubt, make burgers” – so that’s what I did.
I had one with carrot and swede mash and Mount Vegerest, just because I never have that and I fancied a change… :-)
I thought they were delicious but as I made them mainly for a friend who’s starting a gluten-free, dairy-free and vegetarian diet, I’ll wait till she’s tried them before I share the recipe…
And it may be cold and miserable but it is still August, just, which I think makes it still summer enough for ice-cream:
I know the last two pictures are rubbish… don’t’cha just love it when your camera battery runs out?!
I managed to catch today’s Mental Veg of the Day before it did though:
Is it just me or does that carrot remind you of Ursula, from The Little Mermaid?!
Just me then :-)
At least you can see that’s a carrot whereas the other thing could be a mushroom – but could equally be a football. Mad.
Happy WIAW – and thank you to Jenn for hosting the party!
