Christmas Frazzle

salt and vinegar twists

We’ve reached that pre-Christmas time when, regardless of how simple your planned festivities are, everything becomes really hectic. So: crisps on a plate. It is a festive plate though. And people are happily gobbling up their Tesco salt and vinegar twists as happily as they gobbled down the fancier snacks ūüôā Moral of the crisps on a plate? Don’t try too hard, don’t tire yourself out: enjoy Christmas.

Take a little walk on the beach. Breathe. Eat some crisps.

Goodfella's Vegan Pizza

Yes. Frozen vegan pizza from GoodFella’s. It’ll be on supermarket shelves in April, retailing at ¬£2.50, Vegan Society trademarked, and we can verify that it is delicious!

It was perfect on a day like this, when there had been some trudging through snowdrifts.

Then the courier made it through with our pizzas!

Vegan Pizza!

The crumbled falafel topping makes the pizza dense and satisfying and goes so well with the spinach, always a sturdy inclusion to Italian food. The hummus drizzle is garlic-y and cheese-y and perfect too.

We paired it with leek and potato soup, and with each pizza serving two, that made a big and filling meal.

This will be a great dish to have on standby in the freezer for busy (or lazy!) days.

Okay snow, we’re ready for you again!

Eating, Reading, Looking

Eating:¬†a simple trifle made of bananas in vegan jelly, topped with thick custard and this rather nice provamel cream¬†(we were lucky enough to find a few of these cheaply¬†on Approved Food recently). There’s a more detailed trifle recipe on the¬† Vegan Christmas¬†page.

Reading: Manda Scott’s Boudica series.

Looking at: wintry sunsets.
