My little post on the McGrath Foundation supporting greyhound racing certainly became a lot bigger than I thought it would!

A special thank you shout-out to those who rescue and care for greyhounds all over the world – you do great things, and make such a difference to their otherwise miserable lives. So thank you.

My long weekend was spent cooking, playing with both my nieces (Z-monster and S-monster), hanging out with L-whack, reading and catching up on sleep – it was lovely!

I cooked a number of dishes – an Indian Vegetable Stew (I have searched for the recipe; all I remember was that I printed it about a year ago from TasteSpotting!)

I made another pizza! I think I used slightly warmer water this time, as the dough rose quite a bit more this time around. It was very good – and my mum even enjoyed some! I usually scoff down all the pizza I can, but this time I left a quarter, and enjoyed it for brunch on Sunday – after my run, and teamed with a super green smoothie!

I also made a chilli non carne a la Ess Mick!

I made a chile powder (we don’t have that here!), which I then used in a taco seasoning.

Onions, capsicum, purple carrot, black beans, corn, tomatoes, fresh lime juice, kale…….. oh, and garlic! I was going to add coriander, but used it up in the Indian stew!

I think next time I make it, I’ll add a little more taco seasoning to the mix.

Followed by the ah-maz-ing Vegie Head chocolate-dipped apricots! A super easy, super tasty dessert – and even better when Safeway has Whitaker’s chocolate 2 for $5 (their dark range is vegan friendly!). I may have bought 8 or so blocks............

I dare you to look through these recipes and NOT drool!

I was so excited to try these that I forgot to put them on baking paper – so they stuck to the plate. No biggie though as I scraped off chocolate with my fingers (hmm!) – And then the next night I warmed them enough to melt the chocolate and reset them on baking paper!
