Playing catch up again

[donotprint] I had quite the weekend of fun; though fun means catch up but in the best way possible! I don’t feel under any undue pressure or stress aside from a few less than ideal goings on on the home front.

The weekend went well…baking wise, work wise and shopping wise! I picked up a few warm layers and new Pyjamas after a much needed clear out. Loving working the odd day in The Happy Pear! Such a wonderful atmosphere, packed to the rafters of friendly bubbly people, it’s a joy!

On a less positive note my Gran unfortunately had to go in to hospital on Monday to have surgery to remove cancer…it being the first it’s truly hit my family I wasn’t really sure how to deal with it. She’s recovering well and should be home in no time and I think the main thing is for everyone to remain as positive and upbeat as possible.

And on the blog front, you might have missed a few goodies over the weekend…

The finer details of fat …. a closer look at Omega’s 3 and 6 – part two to come this week!

Finally my blueberry cornmeal coconut banana bread! And then yesterday’s eats; some of which I posted recipes for yesterday meaning you don’t have to wait for once! Smile

Peas and Crayons

It started with an amazing zucchini breakfast buckwheat bake…

Instant and protein laced; it’s a close as you’re going to get as instant zucchini bread and it was damn good! Recipe went up yesterday and you can check out the full post here! Enjoy!

Next up was a surprisingly amazing Thai Coconut Roasted Butternut Soba Noodle Soup! Delicious, nutritious and oh so simple.

If you like coconut milk you’re going to love this; coconut milk in it’s purest simplest broth like form. Satisfying and fresh. And yes it’s recipe number two that I managed to post yesterday evening!!!

I’ve been on a bit of a remake buzz lately, making a few of my favourites with new twists and just generally trying to improve them…

The best lentil eggplant Moussaka I’ve ever made right there! The topping has a nice little twist!

It held together beautifully, a mighty portion for one baked in non other than a loaf tin – I’ll let you know my secret in tomorrow evenings post!

As a night time snack I had a super duper bowl of fresh fruit, melon, grapes, mango, pear and plum, topped off with Alpro plain soy yoghurt and a sprinkling of bee pollen. On the side a slice of my latest sweet loaf….another remake which includes Bob’s coconut flour!

I’ll have the recipe up tomorrow evening!

It was quite the day of eats but that Thai Butternut Coconut Soup came out on top; it was such a wonderful refreshing surprise!

Happy What I ate Wednesday folks!!!
