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!
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.
I wrote about how I’ve been trying to make our household more eco-friendly in two previous blog posts. I meant to write this post weeks ago but didn’t get around to it until now! So far we have stopped buying bottled water, stopped using plastic straws, stopped using disposable wipes for cleaning, reduced the amount of fruit and veg in plastic packaging that we buy, stopped buying shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in plastic bottles, stopped buying plastic toothbrushes and stopped using disposable breast pads. Some small and easy enough changes, but I’m really happy that we’ve stopped creating all that waste.
There were still a few bigger things to change. Most of our rubbish consisted of disposable nappies and food waste, so I’ve worked on that since then. Read More »
I had a lovely moment with my 4 year old recently and thought I would share. It made me a very proud vegan mammy!
Síofra is 6 months old already! With three kids to look after, it has flown by. She has fitted into our lives perfectly and now it feels like she’s always been here. She has always been a big baby, and still is very big and healthy! She’s such a happy little girl, and is really a joy to be with and take care of. Life is busy right now, but very happy.Read More »
I felt like sun-dried tomato pesto pasta today and I want the kids to eat more greens, so I made this sun-dried tomato and kale pesto. I added some chickpeas to make it even more nutritious and filling and because chickpeas go great with so many things. I don’t know about other kids, but my kids will eat anything if it’s on pasta! But you could also serve this pesto mixed with grains, baby potatoes, beans or lentils.
