Hello everyone! It’s been a little while again since I last posted cause it’s been a busy time recently: I’ve started a new job and been productive making lots of new paintings.
For this post, I thought I’d keep it pretty simple and share another shopping photo from my last visit to Sainsbury’s, as it’s been ages since I posted one, and they had a few new items which I picked up and want to review:
So, as well as a couple of basic items, I also chose some official vegan Cornettos, a carton of Mylk, Meridian curry sauces and silken tofu.
- The Cornettos were very nice, but I thought they could have benefited even more from some jam or extra chocolate running through them as they were a little on the plain side for me. Overall I prefer the Tesco freefrom ones, although I suppose it depends how sweet you like them 🙂
- I was a bit disappointed by Mylk, owing to the fact that it separated in my tea and coffee 😦 Now, I don’t actually know whether this is a problem I have with my water or kettle or something, because I do find that most milks I try separate in hot drinks. The Alpro original and the Oatly barista are currently the only ones which DON’T separate! However, I do think they have done a very good job of replicating the dairy milk taste. I might use the rest of it in porridge instead 🙂
- The Meridian curry sauces have become a staple in my kitchen cupboard, and I always pick up a couple of them when I go to Sains. They make curries so quick and are delicious. They have korma and tikka masala varieties, which are my two favourites anyway!
- Lastly, the silken tofu is for making scrambled ‘egg’, as we finally located some black salt the other day which gives a good flavour. Looking forward to trying it…
Also, just a few pics from the last couple of weeks. Firstly, this is one of my favourite quick and easy meals at the moment: Quorn spicy chicken-style burgers accompanied by salad, corn-on-the-cob, and some Vegenaise.
TIP: it’s so easy to cook corn in the microwave: put it in a container with a splash of water and heat it for about 3 mins, turning it over half way through. Put some vegan butter and black pepper on it too!
Lastly, I went on an unexpected trip to London on Sunday, helping out on a tour for some Italian students. In my free time, I knew I had to go to Yorica 😀 This was cookies and cream flavour ice-cream in a cone, with pieces of brownie and hearts on top:
