I completely forgot to take a picture of my rainbow rice dinner – an Abel and Cole recipe. But I thought I’d share with you a much better picture that I took yesterday…
Visiting my parents on Saturday didn’t result in me eating meat as I thought it would. I had a verge version of the fig, balsamic and pancetta starter – with brie – and then a very nice puttanesca a la delia. Delicious!
Recipe was my concoction and involved black turtle beans – let me know if you want the recipe!
We went to the lovely Tampopo last night for dinner – somewhere I would most definitely recommend – and both managed to remain on the meat free wagon…
I’m even quite looking forward to the bean burritos with guacamole that I have planned for this evening!
The third day of meatlessness is going well…though I’ve been fantasising about salami
If you want the recipe, let me know!
Seeing as I completely forgot to take a picture of the lentil and squash curry Mr B cooked me as I was too busy wolfing it down, I thought I’d share a little peek at some of the things I’ve been making for my shop…felt flower brooches with vintage button centers.
Having eaten a little too much meat over the weekend and having lots of veg in our box, I thought I’d share our week of meatless meals…

The more astute amongst you may have noticed that I have given the blog a little bit of a facelift in recent weeks, tweaking the layout and my banner style using my most rustiest, un-educated Photoshop skills to attempt to make it look halfway decent whilst avoiding paying for one of the far more beautiful and well created WordPress layouts…well I tried
What is far more important than this is the reasoning behind my changes – I’ve decided to bite the bullet, stop procrastinating, stop imagining and get moving and open my very own Etsy shop where I will be selling my handmade, thrifted and generally awesome items for Mr Jo public to covet and perhaps, maybe (please) purchase. Whilst I have set things in motion though (this was a big step for the tired, lazy me of 2012), I have yet to actually photograph any of the items I have created or to put them up on the shop…so I guess it’s a bit of a watch this space for the moment. You won’t have to wait for too long I hope…
