I experimented with more vegan and vegetarian cookery, partly in response to Plastic Free July because I am now hyper aware of how much single use plastic packaging we buy. It's certainly made an impact on our grocery bill and the amount of landfill waste we create. I was already pretty smug that our non-recyclables only filled a single 15 litre bin bag each fortnight. Now we've managed to make one last over three weeks. Yay us! I blogged a few recipes that turned out particularly well - Cauliflower Couscous was one - and am looking forward to more creative concoctions throughout the Autumn! My Lentil Beanburgers recipe was the second most popular Stephanie Jane post in August, only just pipped at the post by a bakerdays cake giveaway. I suppose free cake would be more tempting! Congrats to winner Sam in Chigwell!
Now I am looking forward to our imminent city break trio - Prague, Vienna and Budapest in September. I've not visited any of these cities before so am excited to experience them. If only the current Brexit shambles hadn't reduced our currency's relative value so drastically! Typical political short-sightedness. We've got lots ideas for places to see, streets to stroll and local delicacies to eat. If you've got any must-see suggestions, do Comment them below! My next Stephanie Jane post will come from Prague ...
