Hit or miss Monday

In an effort to have a vegetarian day per week, tonight we are supposed to be having stewed beans with poached eggs. My husband has already had leftover meatloaf (in a sandwich) for lunch and is usually a little unimpressed by the lack of obvious protein in his supper. I might cheat a little, I do have some leftover pork with chestnuts that I could use as a stock. It is noticeably harder in the wintery months to think about healthy salads and the benefits of vitamins found in fruits. All I want is a hot bowl of rice pudding, or a hearty bacon and mushroom pie with a creamy sauce. Last night is a good example… I was made a huge garlicy cheesey anchovy potato bake and we ate the lot (along with four mini apple pies.) So it’s goodbye plans for a healthier lifestyle, and hello increasing waistline (until the Spring months at least!)

  1. There are lots of gorgeous winter veggie options Amy! Root vegetable stew with mushrooms and dumplings; baked polenta with spinach and goats cheese; mixed bean chilli; mushroom, leek and potato ragout or a good old fashioned lentil curry are some of my favourites. You should try harder!
