While Matt and I don’t normally do Burns’ night, I saw Vegetarian Haggis on special in the supermarket and thought – why not?!

I have taken pictures before, I have folders and folders of them on my Mac, but I guess it just seems too simple to post. Let’s face it, Cauliflower is never going to be the sexiest vegetable.
However if you have a huge cauliflower and a husband that dislikes Cauliflower cheese, then maybe this recipe will also be helpful for you too!
As part of the workout plan it is suggested that you eat clean, which I mostly ignored. It seems to be lots of lean proteins and broccoli 😉 However I did look at some of the recipes out there and a couple appealed, including this Cauliflower rice.
As a disease that has affected both my grandmothers (thankfully both in later life) this research is something that I am particularly interested in. While the research is in its early phases, by eating more foods rich in B vitamins – what is the worst that could happen? It may have no affect on memory, but it’s still good for you!
So often I put the leftovers in the fridge only to throw out 5 days later when I realise I am never going to eat them now. It feels a bit rubbish to be throwing out little bits of so many different things, especially after reading The Everlasting Meal over Christmas.
So yesterday I went into the fridge and pulled out all the bits and pieces of leftover mexican food from mid-week. There were two corn wraps, half a tin of refried beans, a quarter of a jar of hot salsa and an orange pepper (along side the usual fridge staples of eggs and cheese).
For the second year in a row I have made a beef pot roast for New Years Day Dinner. I like that it’s simple when realistically you are going to wake up late, and most likely a little bit worse for wear.
This morning when I eventually woke up, I went straight into making it.
Using leftover turkey (or maybe even ham), rice, a couple of eggs and some Chinese 5 spices you can whip up a very quick taste Christmassy dinner.
The husband and I have been doing a fair amount of traveling recently Amsterdam, Dublin, London and most recently a week long holiday on the Greek island of Rhodes. While discovering a new city or relaxing on a beach somewhere ranks pretty highly on my favourite things to do, airport travel, funnily enough, does not.
However I have to grudgingly admit the airport food is getting a little bit better. Gone are the days when a flight from Glasgow meant the choice of Burger King or a slightly dried up sandwich. In Edinburgh I actually enjoy going to Eat before a flight, as they do light and tasty meals.
I have been wanting to recreate their Ham & Potato Summer Salad for a while, it’s pretty simple and it’s a salad that can be great for dinner not just lunch 🙂
It’s weird the way naming conventions in food work, isn’t it?
Orzo is a type of pasta, it’s small, and sort of rice shaped – like a pine nut. One of the best things about Orzo is that like rice you can use it to make a very fast risotto type dish, called an Orzotto.
In Italian orzo means barley, so back in 2010 when I made a risotto using pearl barley, it too was called orzotto. While pearl barley cooks into a delicious risotto dish, you can’t say it’s fast. It takes longer to cook pearl barley than it does to cook rice.
Risotto is a firm favourite in our household, but the rice version takes a bit long for a week night meal. This is where Orzo (pasta) steps in.
