Eating on the Run

It’s currently  busy times in our household. We get married in 38 days (eek!) and there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to cook, clean, work, sleep, have some teeth out (not me), exercise,  have some form of social life, fight with courier companies, have hobbies and organise a wedding at the same time. Therefore I haven’t really been cooking recently and if I haven’t been cooking it means there will be no leftovers for lunch. Boo.

So I’m (grudingly) having to buy lunch. Today’s choice was this:

A Food Doctor Bulgar Wheat and Quinoa pot. If I must “just add water” to something I’d prefer it to be a fairly healthy option with ingredients I recognise. It wasn’t great taste wise though and very bland, some hot sauce wouldn’t go amiss here. But on the plus side it was filling I suppose. The other pots I’ve tried in the range have been similar but if you are caught short and It’s this or a Pot Noodle looking at you from the shelves of Tesco, I know which option I’d go for…just don’t expect a taste sensation.

Dinner tonight was this:

Hummus, cherry tomatoes, artichokes, olives, a stuffed jalapeno, cubed Vegusto sausage and some sunflower seed Ryvita. No cooking required and it definitely tasted better than my lunch. I know it could do with a few more vegetables to balance things out but it was just thrown together with what was in the fridge at the time. The hummus is quite a large portion of the recipe from the Veganomicon as it needed using up, and that sausage is good. It is a bit on the expensive side though but it is huge and does last for ages.

Sausage close up. Fnar.

Normal service will be resumed shortly!

PS: Happy one month birthday to my blog and thank you to the 878 people who have come and read my whitterings since I started 🙂

  1. I always have to add lime juice and hot sauce to Food Doctor and Innocent Veg Pots, or some umeboshi paste – damn low-sodium.

      It’s a shame that low salt seems to equal low taste. You’d think they would’ve spiced things up during taste testing!
