Speedy Summer Hemp Power Salad. I roasted pumpkin, used whatever was in my fridge and forgot to add hemp seeds. It didn't have much resemblance to Angela's salad but it was tasty. Before telling you about it, here is a little wander through my weekend.
Fitzroy Market. As we boarded the train, I did a headcount and found that Dolly was missing. E hopped off at the next station and travelled back to find her at the station master's office. Dolly came along to the market and had her face painted.
Pastry Art Design in Smith Street for a snack with Heather. I had a chocolate bombolini. Very nice (though not as good as those at Sugardough). Then we hurried home for our house has needed a considerable amount of attention this weekend.
Little Deer Tracks was just what we needed. The courtyard with its colourful painting is conducive to relaxing time-out. I had the carrot and haloumi fritters with tzatziki and an avocado and cucumber salad. Sylvia had the baked beans and a hash brown. E had the nachos. All good food. As I feared Sylvia was not keen on the home made version, preferring her baked beans from a tin. My fritters were crispy and puffy but I prefer them more dense. E loved his nachos, which were rather substantial.
pizza for dinner. It just needed some vegetables. Last night when I made pizza, we had some vegetable sticks with hummus for an appetiser before the pizza. Tonight, I whipped up a salad with some old pumpkin and feta from the fridge. If I had had tomatoes and green leaves, I might have added them.
recipe that I was supposedly following. Hence my omission of the hemp seeds. I am looking forward to trying them out another time.
