The Girl is visiting for a week and has declared herself an L-plate vegetarian.
As she has a milk allergy, this makes her… a vegan who eats eggs?
|DIY muesli: oats, barley flakes and assorted seeds and dried fruits|
She was slightly alarmed by my enthusiastic response to this plan, involving grow-your-own beansprouts and bread-baking. She said she wasn’t planning on being “that sort of vegetarian”. Heh heh heh – is there another kind?!

Well, yes of course there is, and it is likely that we will hit the vegeburgers before the week is out, but for the time being, I am brandishing The Veganomicon with born-again zeal.
Saturday: Chick Pea Romesco with basmati rice and steamed broccoli followed by Lemon Drizzle Cake (baked by The Girl)
Sunday: Thai Vegetable Green Curry with noodles, made by The Girl
Monday: Lemon and Green Pea Risotto with roasted red peppers and a green salad
|Probably the best brownies in the universe|
Wednesday: Refried Beans (from a wonderful old vegy recipe book) with wraps and sweetcorn and salsa
|Don’t you wish this was chocolate brownies?|
|…not just a freshly-ploughed field?|
