I salute you! I’m no vegan, but I do try to make more of my meals meat and dairy free than aren’t. It’s not because I particularly enjoy butterbeans. It’s actually for many reasons which I won’t bore you with now but suffice to say if I could get away with a bacon double cheeseburger […]Read More For Those About To Veganuary….
Happy Twixmas all, I hope it’s been a good one for you and if it hasn’t I wish you a peaceful end to the year now.

It is basically eastern […]Read More The Green Tea Thing
There’s been a lot of press grumble recently about the horrors of food waste in the UK, culminating this week in the East Of England Co-Op food stores announcing that they will now continue to sell dried and canned food past it’s best before date. This is a great move by the Co-op, for altruistic […]Read More Easy Food Waste Wins
read the first part here I have to start with both a disclaimer and an apology on this challenge report, which is some weeks late now.
