It is really starting to feel like winter now! We’ve had our first frost and the days are getting colder and shorter. When this happens, the only way forward is a big bowl of porridge for breakfast! Now, let me warn you, this might disgust some of you BUT! I am not a huge fan of sweet porridge and in my family, we’ve always made our porridge with water, added a pinch of salt and poured cold milk over the top. It’s SO good (don’t knock it until you try it!) and it sets you up for the day- even when it’s -1 outside! And a green juice on the side cause I’m obsessed!
There is nothing better on a cold day than a big bowl of soup! I have pumpkins and squashes dotted all over the house plus it’s Halloween! So I decided to make a big pot of vegan butternut squash soup. I normally make mine with cream or crème fraiche but this time I used coconut milk and it was so tasty! I’ll pop the recipe up on Sunday so keep an eye out for that!
One of my all-time favourite dinners is fajitas (the type of filling isn’t overly important to me!) so when my mum very kindly bought me the Old El Paso gluten free fajita kit, I was desperate to make them! And I was not disappointed! I often find with gluten free wraps that they aren’t sturdy enough for fajitas and you end up with a bit of a Mexican mess once everything falls apart but these wraps are ideal! Slightly smaller than the usual but so tasty and held all of my fillings well! 🙂 We had chicken, peppers and onions then some of the usual sides- cheese, guacamole, salsa and natural yoghurt (I tend to use this rather than sour cream).
And definitely don’t judge me for all the Halloween sweeties I ate, that’s the point of Halloween right?!
I’m properly trying to get myself into a meal planning routine and so far it’s going well this week! So if I can keep it up, I’ll be back with another of these next week! 🙂
See my last WIAW here!
