Veggie meals


I'm back. Sorry I've been so busy blogging has fallen by the wayside a bit

Anyway, just a quick update for you

After a request from DD we are now eating at least one vegetarian meal a week (as well as fish on Fridays). I still need to spend some time going through and looking at recipes to make sure that vegetarian doesn't just mean cheese and pastry!!

In the meantime we have tried Linda McCartney's Deep Country Pies which were lovely and Sainsburys Cheese and Onion crispbakes which we all liked

So... We're trying but I want to make more effort to cook veggie from scratch. Any recipes or hints would be gratefully received!

Six months to make & the 50-odd guests demolished it in five minutes!!
