The family and I went to our lovely friend’s house for the evening to hang out, eat, drink and watch the results coming in.
Apart from my standard home made pizza, my lovely friend made us this
All organic and from her garden – topped with lime juice dressing. I never think of adding potatoes to salad – but seriously I could have eaten the whole bowl myself. I dream of having a garden that can provide enough for a salad like this – radish, salad greens, potatoes, and so much more.
What upsets me though, is that only 68 percent of eligible voters in the country exercised their right to vote! I am not a hugely political person to be honest, but what I recognise is how lucky we are in New Zealand to have that right, to make our vote count, and to have input into our government. Around the world people die and fight to have that right, and here people can’t be bothered. Now don’t get me wrong, I know for some people their lives are so tough that just surviving is their main focus, but for others I am sure it is just complacency – and that is disappointing. Come on people – others would love this opportunity!
So there is my rant fot the weekend.
On the good side – My Veganomicon cookbook arrived today – and I can’t wait to make my way through it, and show you my efforts.
Also – tonight I am making Chelseys Overnight Oats- it’s the little things that make you happy, but tomorrow I cant wait to give them a go.
