Saturday was always going to be tricky for me. It is my normal “bacon buttie” day. I have already said I am a massive carnivore and bacon is probably the foodstuff I love more than anything else in the world. So my first Saturday of Vegtember was one in which I intended to keep myself very busy, and my mind firmly off the topic of various pig related products.
Lots of the vegetarian recipes that people have sent me call for the use of a Griddle pan, a kitchen utensil I had long desired but did not own. Given that I am doing this for the Environment I set out on a mission to get myself one, not for me you understand, I bought this for the greater good! Picture attached, isn’t she lovely!
Next up was to record my latest Video Blog about Vegtember (see below) this Video is about using your local greengrocers rather than the supermarket. I had an unexpected technical problems (my camcorder has seemingly died) so I apologise about the poor picture quality in the “talking head” bit. The camcorder on my phones seems excellent out doors but grainy and horrid in doors. Shall have to look into this in advance of my video about Farmers Markets next week.
Needed to attack the ice monster in my Freezer for the rest of the day so was unable to do any substantial cooking for the rest of the day. So for dinner I just ate the leftover Peanut and Tomato sauce from the other day.
So survived Saturday without going on a meat c razed rampage to the local bacon store. Decided that given the food I am having so far is all pretty healthy I am going to treat myself to some cheese on toast as a bacon replacement next Saturday.
