Excuses...

Yes, so I haven't blogged in a while. For many reasons I've not been eating grown up food and nobody wants to read the blog o' toast. Here are my excuses for unblogworthy food:
  • Gary went away for a few days to visit his family, and I can never be bothered cooking proper food for just me, it's sad, I know.
  • When Gary got back he started chucking up everywhere as he had contracted the dreaded norovirus. He wasn't eating properly for quite a while, which means I wasn't eating properly.
  • I'm on new medication for my jaw pain (I'm sure I've mentioned it at some point) which has made me lose my appetite quite a lot.
Because of the loss of appetite, I've mainly been eating lightish foods. I remembered to take pictures of the last few meals, so hopefully I'll be back in the swing of things now!

This is a pretty basic meal of stir fried veg, baked tofu, and quinoa.

And this is... ummm... well, it's clearly a salad. It had lettuce spinach, basil, tomatoes, red onions, some sliced up vegi deli sausages, redwoods feta, parmezano... Probably more, but meh. I also made a dressing and bottled it. We have quite a few of these bottles and Gary likes to pretend they're potion bottles like in an RPG. Indeed. Anyhoo, the dressing has a little bit of extra virgin olive oil, fresh basil and dill, nutritional yeast, and balsamic and red wine vinegar.

Sorry to hear Gary has been under the weather. Hope you all start doing better pretty soon.

That stir-fry and quinoa dish looks fantastic. I love quinoa!

Hi Lelly - I'm a new vegan - can you tell me how you bake the tofu? It looks good - is it in a marinade? I'm mainly stir frying so would be nice to have another option! Tx!
