Continuing on from my last What I Ate Today post, we are still catching up with the photos that I have lying around from last year.
It looks like another day at home for this week. Next week though – well, in two weeks – next two-week, we venture out into the big wide world and eat some food. Stay-tuned or something.
The introductions might also improve when the photos are more current too, but who knows.
On to the food!
Which I forgot to photograph. And by snack, I mean a big glass of orange juice.
At least I change the flavours up when I know I will be sharing it with people. This week, I have had four banana smoothies and that’s it. I hope the next WIAT does not have a smoothie in it…
As always, a recipe to accompany such terrible photos.
Banana And Blueberry Smoothie
- 5 large bananas
- 2 cups frozen blueberries
- 750ml water
You know what to do.
Oh I love leftover. They make my life so easy.
We had this golden rice concoction for dinner the previous night and since we have yet to master portion sizes, we had plenty of leftovers for us both to have it for lunch the next day.
I whipped this all up in rice cooker as well, and have made it many times since then. It is a delicious easy dinner and might even pass for good vegan food.
Golden Rice And Veggies
- Basmati Rice (about 3 cups)
- Some saffron
- Some turmeric
- Some mushrooms, diced
- A cup of frozen peas
- One red pepper, diced
- One onion, diced
I then popped it all in the rice cooker with 5 and a half cups of water and let it do its thing. We did pre-cook the peppers, onion, peas and mushrooms this time, but all the other times we have made this, we have just let the rice cooker do all the hard work.
So I saw this on Instagram, you know, one of those fancy recipe-video thingies where they have all the details in the video. I thought it looked pretty tasty and I needed some more wife-points so I whipped this up as a surprise dinner for the Mr.
Since I could not re-find the video – of course, I did not bother to like/bookmark or do anything useful to facilitate re-finding – I just made everything up and hoped for the best.
The gist was, put the pastry down, make a pizza-esque topping and roll it. It was actually quite nice.
Since then, I have tried to make this a few times and it now appears to be suffering from The Curse of Too Much Filling.
Since this is a day of “recipes” here is another one.
Puff Pastry Veggie Roll
- Readymade puff pastry
- Tinned tomatoes
- Aubergine, sliced
- Spring onions, sliced
- Red peppers, sliced
- Mushrooms, sliced
I have no idea about quantities, just enough to fill the pastry but not enough that it is impossible to roll and you shove your fingers through the pastry which causes the entire thing to collapse and you have to patch the holes up with the leftover pastry from the sides.
Roll that baby up and pop into the over. I opted for 200℃ for 30 minutes. It ended up like you can see.
Serve with an incredibly boring salad because no one really cares about that.
And that’s another day in the life of my stomach. Anything you fancy from this lot? Cooked anything good lately?
