A year today I decided to try being a vegan for a little while. In January I read 'Eating Animals' and mostly ate a lot of chickpeas.
Before I signed up to Growing Communities, I had to track down all my vegetables and fruit myself. So March was full of trips to the market.
Easter came around and I cooked the first of many vegan feasts for my family- roasted tomato soup, spring vegetable pie and mash potatoes.
BBQ as a vegan and seemed to start a lentil burger factory. I also made carrot cake and lots of cups of tea for best friends.
Discovering apricots in the fruit bag one night in the park, and working out lunch box recipes to make on Sunday evenings.
vegetable bag had been transformed by all the gorgeous summer produce- I carried on making a lot of lentil burgers and sweet potato wedges for my family.
edible flowers to add to salads and perfected a brownie recipe, which I will probably rename Gone in Sixty Seconds for 2013.
tomato stall, and experimented with Bundt tins and Sunday baking like a woman possessed.
August meant lots of late night dinner parties and Mexican food, like Thomasina Miers' black eyed bean soup.last BBQ of the summer and the first squash soup...
granola and more pumpkins than I knew what to do with!
ludicrous brunches and drank a lot of cava. But you already knew that.
The farmers' markets were in full bloom with all of November's produce, like the endless rows of apples at Borough Market. I made sweet potato and red lentil soup to combat blustering bike rides.
And finally it was December. When, with the help of a small army, I managed to cook a seemingly never-ending gluten-free Christmas dinner, and average at least four roast dinners a week.
So so long 2012 and Happy New Year to all my readers! I can't wait to see what 2013 holds for Guac & Roll.
