Breakfast love

I normally do not 'do' breakfast…for one, I'm never hungry and secondly just the thought of food makes me feel queezy. But, today I had a super early tennis lesson and found myself starving at 8am so while I was in the shower I popped some vegan breakie bars in the oven to be ready when I came out.
It is so easy…
heat up 2 spoonfulls of peanut butter (I prefer smooth and normally make my own but didn't have any in stock)
to this add two bananas and mash, ripe works best but no bother
in the meantime 1.5cups of oats, handful of shredded coconut, chopped almonds and pecans, handful of cranberries and sunflower seeds.
mix everything together and pop in oven in a pan…cook for about 20mins and your good to go!!!

More envy...

More house envy I'm afraid…I can't seem to get enough of people and their interior flare…

The grey with the vivid colors makes me WANT to live here…

and this…would work perfectly in the climate I live in!

Colours of the day

With 38degree weather its hard to decide what to wear that isn't well, nothing. Today was a blue and green day with turquoise nails!

Kitchen envy

As I slave away in my kitchen this week, I got to thinking about what I would want my ideal kitchen to look like and how it should function...

Here is my favourite...

And this would be an ideal sink...although probably not practical!

Veggie food

So, without even thinking about it I mainly eat veggie...but. There are those times for me where a big steak is heaven. A little slice of magical fills you up, gives you energy among other things!

But this week I've been trying my luck out with a vegetarian lasagne. Now I am not a huge fan of lasagne as it is, so trying to make it now seems a little crazy but, make it I did. Twice!

The first time was a lentil and courgette lasagne and this one (photos) is a chickpea, aubergine and chile poblano...has a lovely kick to it!

If anyone has any other good combos for a veggie lasagne please share!

I like making my aubergines stripey, the skin is always so tough and yet I quite like the bitter taste it the effect is nice!

The base for the tomato sauce, now I didn´t do a bechamel...bad girl I am. But sometimes you just don´t have the time! I didn´t have any onions so I used spring onions...I didn´t have enough of one kind of tomatoes so I added these deliciously sweet yellow tomatoes...

Ok, here goes the layering...tomato sauce, aubergine step 1

mmmm...chili poblano, chickpeas and homemade ricotta cheese!

The finished produce...with a chunk out of it. I had to make sure it was ok didn´t I??
