HellOooo vegetable lovers (and the occasional meat lover)! I must admit that this week's menu has more meat in it than I'd like, but my Jamie Oliver cookbook showed up on Friday - Jamie Cooks Italy and I just had to incorporate some of his meals into the menu. I just luuurve Jamie Oliver's food … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Good morning from Halfmoon Bay. We are well into the loooong, dark, rainy days of winter. Thank goodness we got our yard work done yesterday as part of our Operation Clean up (well, except for the porch stones) because it's raining today. These are the kinds of days that make you want to curl up … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Skinny Soup, Pumpkin Chili & More

This week is a clean-out-the freezer week. I have some ribs and a lovely roast that needs to be eaten soon, so this is the week to do it. I luuurve roast beef & yorkshire pudding! I didn't lose any weight this week (might be the glass of red wine every night), but I did't … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

It's cooled down quite a lot since my last post and it sure feels like Fall...ish. We're still waiting for our tomatoes to ripen, but the Swiss Chard is growing like a weed and I've picked enough of it to add to a stew (tonight's dinner) and one of our favourite meals - Kenyan Braised … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hi all. It's been a busy weekend! After almost two years on worker's compensation, hubby has been cleared to go back to work! Yay! It's been that long since I made lunches, and this weekend I decided to keep it simple until I could come up with more, er, creative but not too time-consuming, ideas. … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

The dog-food experiment has been a great success! To read more about that, click here.  Once a week, I load up the slow cooker with all the scraps, leftovers and cheap meat that I save for them in a big plastic container in the fridge. To this I add water and cook for 6 hours. … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Summer has arrived very quietly here in Halfmoon Bay. The days are cool-ish and pleasant. Our vegetable garden is growing by the minute! It won't be long until we will be eating our own home-grown food. To read more about our vegetable garden, click here.   There's nothing like the taste of fresh, home-grown vegetables. … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

I've been trying to broaden my horizons with regards to vegetarian recipes, and so I googled "Vegetarian Bloggers" and ended up on Kitchn's website (lurrve Kitchn). I was directed to a number of vegetarian blog sites - Naturally Ella - has some yummy-looking dinner recipes like Spiced Pinto Bean Bowls with Avocado, Pinto Squash Stew with … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hi everyone! It's been a few weeks. Things have been more than a little hectic around here. Buuut, I'm getting back on track now.  I'm afraid to say that I fell off the wagon in terms of exercise. With the warmer weather, I've (re)started walking for 30 minutes a day along the sea wall in Sechelt … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Back on track finally and I lost 3 pounds last week! Whoo hoo! I did things a little differently this time. Instead of having leftover suppers for my lunch, I've been having a salad instead. And absolutely NO sweets! I have a horrible sweet tooth, but this week a small yogurt after supper satisfied my … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life
