Síofra’s 1st Birthday

My littlest vegan baby turned one a few days ago! It seems like only yesterday that she was born, and yet I can’t imagine life without her. I feel like she was meant to be in our lives, and her big brothers love having a sister more than anything. Recently Rian said, “we are so lucky to have her”, and I couldn’t agree more. It has been the best year ever.

Rian’s 5th Birthday

Rian turned 5 a few days ago and we had a little celebration. These 5 years have been the best. It’s lovely to see how he has grown into such a kind and funny person. He keeps me entertained all the time, imagining stories, chatting about things he has learned, asking a million questions. He is so caring, always saying how he loves me and his brother and sister, how he loves animals and wants to help them. I’m so proud of him. Raising him has been the greatest things I’ve done so far, but no matter how grown up he gets, he will always be my baby.

Creamy Tofu, Mushroom and Chickpea Curry

I haven’t been blogging much lately.  I’ve just been really, really busy looking after the kids and not made time for it.  But I made this curry today and it was so nice that I have to write down the recipe before I forget!  I mostly just made it up as I went along, but I will definitely be making it again.  And hopefully will be blogging again more regularly soon!

Spiced Roasted Roots Soup with Chickpea Croutons

I just made this soup today, and it was so nice that we ate it all straight away!  So I thought I’d share the recipe.  I hadn’t made soup in a while, but it’s getting colder here now, so felt like a good day for it.  The spices and coconut milk make it really nice and comforting and warming for autumn time, and the chickpea croutons make it more filling and nourishing.
