Sriracha seems to be such a big thing at the moment and although I’d already tried it whilst at Pho for part of my birthday celebrations, I thought I’d give it another go. My friend and fellow colleague Lucy and I went to the main Chinese supermarket in the Lanes one lunch time the other week and we both picked up a bottle of Sriracha sauce. Last weekend was a Bank Holiday here in the UK so what better thing to do than to make something delicious to enjoy.
I am crazy about Mexican food. If I could eat one type of food for the rest of my life, it would be Mexican food. It is so delicious, plus I am pretty good at making it if I do say so myself!
Like I’ve said before, I try and eat as much food from scratch as I can, which includes bread, cakes, snacks and things like that. So I picked up a bag of masa and decided to give making homemade corn tortillas a go…..
Like I said in my first Meat Free Feb post, I didn’t manage to document all of my meals as for some of the month I was away in Manchester – I am a Scentsy consultant and our World Tour conference was over a weekend in February. I’m sure that cheese sandwiches and Waitrose sweet potato parcels aren’t as exciting as proper meals so I didn’t document those!
At the start of this month I decided to challenge myself to not eat meat for a month. I ignored the mockery from some people and thought that instead I would be strong and see if I could do it. I have less than a week left, so decided to share with you what I’ve been eating. I haven’t got pictures from every single day as I was away in Manchester last week and was out on Friday and Saturday this week and have excuses from other times, but don’t worry I’ve not slipped up once!
Anyway, I thought that I would share with you what I was eating for the first part of the month:
(Please excuse the uneven colouring, I didn’t have much luck with the light or editing!!)
I have posted a lot of ‘makes’ this week and I hope to continue to make at least one thing every week, if not a lot more!
We made pasties using Paul Hollywood’s pastry recipe and they turned out to be delish! These are perfect for packed lunches, picnics, lunch, dinner and snacks! There’s no recipe as such, apart from for the pastry, which is Paul’s one (and pretty darned fabulous) but I took photos of the process to share with you guys at least!
