  • Fart cauliflower

    We have had a lot of cauliflower in our veggie box recently, so we’ve made a lot of fart cauliflower. It freezes beautifully, is easy to make, and is quite soothing if you are feeling a bit niggeldy. Exclude the chilli if you don’t like it too spicy. Eat it with rice and yoghurt. Sorry […]

  • No Meat Week continues… and continues…

    Laura linked me up with the Guardian article “Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall: the joy of veg” and it reminded me that I’d been talking about our no meat week here and not reported on it recently. We are still not cooking meat at home for dinner. It’s been ages, and we’ve only cooked meat perhaps 6 times […]

  • Live Music and Dance Economies + beer

    I’m afraid this isn’t a terribly well written or thought out post. Spring has struck, my sinuses are buzzing with histamines and my brain is running slow and foggy. But I wanted to join up all these issues before I forgot them. So this is a story about liquor licensing, live music economies (financial and […]

  • Country Red Rice (from Sri Lanka, Jothi brand)

    Country Red Rice (from Sri Lanka, Jothi brand), originally uploaded by dogpossum. …with some leftover curry. country-red-rice-closeup, originally uploaded by dogpossum. This rice is DELICIOUS. It’s like brown rice, if you’ve rubbed off most of the brown, and the brown is actually a rusty red. It’s sort of a broken grain, and clumps together when […]

  • No Meat Week: no. 65million – Red Slop and Nice Rice

    We are still not cooking meat at home. Although we did last night. But that was an exception, and organic, free range lalala hippy la meat. That’s the rule. No cooking meat unless it’s from organic free range lala sources. But that’s the only time we’ve cooked meat since we started this whole thing. Recipes […]

  • No Meat Week4: Tuesday

    Tonight I am feeling much better, so we are having the cauliflower, onion and ginger dinner with spinachy rice from an earlier week. This is a delicious dinner, and I hope it will revitalise my taste buds, and more importantly, the antibacterial qualities of all that ginger, garlic and onion will kick the last bits […]

  • No Meat Week4: Monday

    Four weeks already! There was that big bit of exchange in the middle, where I did cook meat, but still. It’s been four weeks since we decided to give this a go. And we’re not sick of it yet. I guess the next goal is to not eat meat for lunch. We are still crook. […]

  • No Meat Week3: Sunday

    We’re both quite crook at the moment, so Dave had leftover veggie curry and I had steamed veggies and a poached egg. Because I have not tastebuds at all.

  • No Meat Week3: Saturday. Red veggie curry

    red veggie curry, originally uploaded by dogpossum. A very simple, ordinary recipe: – Fry a brown onion with 1-2 tbsp red (Thai) curry paste (use a good one, not a rubbish Masterchef version or something), in some oil until the onion is ready (ie transparent or a bit further done. Don’t burn it!) – Add […]
