WIAW – Third Time’s a Charm

May 9, 2012
tags: ,

It’s that time again! Here are some eats from my week so far!

I’m trying to break out of my breakfast routine and have a few new combinations, and so this week I had my beloved vanilla soya yoghurt, with sliced banana.

Lunch was a bowl of lettuce tossed with diced yellow pepper, cubes of smoked tofu, roasted veg couscous, black olives, gherkins, tenderstem broccoli and a dressing of balsamic vinegar. A blob of houmous on top and a couple of crackers added some extra deliciousness!

At the weekend we went to a friends house for dinner, and they created a Mexican masterpiece! This included battered avocado, guacamole, mango salsa and a mixed bean and sweetcorn salad – amazing!

Followed by pretty much the best dessert I’ve ever had! Chocolate-peanut butter-pretzel treats!!

These were two pretzels, sandwiched with peanut butter fondant and half-dipped in chocolate. The stuff of dreams!

I hope that everyone had a relaxing long weekend and the week so far has been good! My weekend was a bit up-and-down but I did a fair bit of writing, baking and blog-reading, so I can’t complain. My car passed it’s MOT which was such a huge relief! Plus I spent time with friends, played Bananagrams and made barbeque ribs!

    is the alpro vanilla yogurt taste much better than usual dairy yogurt like chobani?

      I’m afraid I’ve never had dairy yoghurt before (well, at least not since I was a child! Alpro vanilla yoghurt is so delicious, though – try it :)

    That yogurt looks so yummy, I’ve never tried Alpro yogurts, I do have their almond milk though. All this food looks yummmmyyyy. :)

      I really want to try their almond milk, and their hazelnut milk, but am afraid of buying 1 litre and not liking it!
