Buying And Eating - August Week Two

I forgot to take pictures of what I bought this week, but it was the usual vegetables and that kind of thing, oh and lots of crisps. 

Working through the fridge and pantry continues, this week I opened the bag of quinoa from the big Hodmedod order we did a while ago, and I am pleased to announced it was a win! I have not been in love with many of the products we bought but the quinoa was very nice indeed. So here are a few things we ate this week, in no particular order.

Red Thai curry with brown rice

nut roast and plenty of potatoes

the last of the butterbean and lentil stew from last week with roasted peppers and lemony quinoa

bananas and custard (on an exceptionally grey day)

 we had a blob of this with our bananas, it's a gorgeous caramel marshmallowy gloopy type thing, very sweet, very delicious

Dan's delicious foldovers with houmous, falafel and grated carrot

For three nights we had a really delicious chilli, but apparently I forgot to take pictures on any of the three nights, silly me. Anyway we had it with potato wedges followed by quinoa, and finally flatbread. As I've said before, this is not a low carb household.

      I always feel hungry when I write these posts if that makes you feel any better!

    1. Thank you, I use the same ingredients time and again but just try to prepare them in a slightly different way. The butterbean stew with grilled peppers and quinoa is an idea I stole from a pub we visited recently. We had a bean chilli with quinoa and roast peppers and I thought it was a nice different way to serve it.

  4. It's certainly a household that has some very yummy meals though. Bananas and custard, haven't had that for ages xx

    1. Thank you. We hadn't had bananas and custard for ages either, but we fancied a sweet treat and it was the easiest thing to make at the time.

  5. Always wanted to try quinoa, but have been too chicken. Your pictures make me want to give it a go.

    God bless.

    1. Although alone it doesn't have much flavour, quinoa does have a different texture to the usual rice, cous cous etc. It's pretty versatile too - you can make a sweet pudding, like rice pudding (I haven't tried that though).
