Lunch: Really wanted the salad I've had for the past 2 days but had no more spinach. I did have everything else so I fried up the portobello mushroom, shallots, asparagus, garlic and black eyed beans with some smoked sea salt and freshly ground black pepper in some virgin cold pressed rapeseed oil. Loving this oil, it's even produced here in Ireland! Had the skillet with some slices of toasted french baguette spread with Sunlite. Delicious!
Afternoon Snack: Cup of black coffee with a teaspoon demerara sugar and a few squares of Aine Butterscotch Dark Chocolate. There is a photo a few posts down of this stuff, it's amazing, like a dark chocolate toblerone! Sadly it's all gone now too :-(
Dinner: Well, it's unbelievably warm here in Cork! Our house in particular gets very warm as we have triple glazed eco windows, pretty much floor to ceiling in the kitchen/diner and front room. The kitchen today with all the windows open was 26C, the front room even hotter!
I did NOT feel like cooking so we ran into Marks and Spencer, armed with their vegan list and my ability to read labels ;-) Came home and had a gorgeous chilled feast:
All washed down with a glass of chilled white wine, it was lovely :-)
