Checking in...

I can't remember if I've ever used this photo for a blog post before. I've had it as my profile picture all over the place for a long time so I think it's almost time to go; a new beginning and such. My February resolutions will stand (including #3!), I'm just postponing until March, or maybe April. Seeya then!

>> Typically, this photo was taken during my last trip to New York, which was too long ago. Perhaps I need to go back to get a new one?

Roast Beetroot Salad

I went to the Queen Victoria Market for fruit and vegetables today and realised (again) what a huge difference it makes to the cost and quality of my weekly shop... in a good way! These fresh beetroot were boiled, peeled, chopped then turned into a roast beetroot salad, along with:
~ red onion, finely sliced
~ baby spinach
~ butter beans
~ balsamic vinegar
~ flaxseed oil
~ crushed garlic

Baked potatoes and crusty bread are a cheap and easy way to fill out a meal. Yum yum.

>> The salad recipe is another one from The Low GI Vegetarian Cookbook by Jennie Brand-Miller, Kaye Foster-Powell, Kate Marsh and Philippa Sandall.

My own little New York City

On June 21st last year, I happened to post this miniature New York set to my Tumblr page then on January 26th this year, someone who I doubt would have seen that post gave me the very same set as a present! There's something wondrous about that.

What: City in a Bag 'New York'
