New brewing kitchen setup.

It occurred to me today that I hadn’t had a baked 🥔 for a very long time and set out to fix that..
Baked potato and homemade baked beans, a ginger glazed Scottish flat mushroom and some grilled asparagus.. It was pretty tasty!
Yesterday, for the first time in many years, I took a whole one hour for lunch break and, again for the first time in many years, my newly re-wheeled bike out for a ride.
Naturally, once home I looked for a free and open source fitness tracker in order to record my progress.. on the advice of a friend in the designers, I found FitoTrack and it is perfect for my needs.
Today, despite the stormy winds, I went out for a second bike ride and refined my circuit. Don’t judge me, I am very unfit and this is the start of my journey back to fitness! Anyway, I hope to build up to two then three circuits in a lunch hour but for now one is enough of a challenge.
Photos of today’s cooking efforts
A Scotch broth like soup, maybe the best I’ve made so far (imho)
Chilli, salsa, guacamole (with whole coriander leafs because someone - me - forgot to chop them) and nachos with way too little chilli or cheese (alternative).
All #vegan and all delicious!
Eating this whilst thinking about my friend in Hidaka-mura who would almost certainly make a version that would put these to shame!
Yesterday’s cooking efforts, #vegan lasagne, just as tasty today!
To the Shaft theme tune:
Who is a guy who dislikes xmas but loves cooking for any occasion? this guy! you’re damn right
Who is a guy who makes pigs in blankets, without pigs but better than just blankets? This guy’s wife! not a guy
(Tune bit which inconveniently splits the lines)
Who is a guy who most likely doesn’t remember the theme tune to Shaft! This guy? you’re almost certainly right!
“Giant sausage roll” - chestnut mushroom and nut roast with cranberry, cinnamon and nutmeg flavours in pastry
“Sprouts n stuff” - sticky, crunchy woodland mushrooms and shallots
“Crunchy spuds” - thyme, rosemary & garlic roasted tatties
“Sausage and bacongine” - vegan sausage wrapped in smokey marinated aubergine slices!
All from the the Bish Bash BOSH! Cookbook
Here lies the remains of Islay’s first ⛄ not yet 24 hours old.
I love this picture of Islay! So full of fun (most of the time!) and increasingly cheeky!
All working weeks should be 4 days max, so I get to spend more time with this wee lassie.
Spent an entire day just trying to get my micropubendpoint to recognise image alt text from indigenous.. has been on my todo lost for a while but quite a frustrating process and no studying done today!
Tomorrow much reading!
