Midweek Munchies

It's that time of the week again!

First up, a ready made Korma curry, which I served over rice and spinach. See the part on the box where it says mild? LIES! This was spicy and hurt my tummy.

Thankfully this Falafel Mix was wonderful! It was so easy to make (just mix with water and let sit), and made delicious falafels. Magically, they were not too dry (as I find a lot of pre-mix falafel or just store-bought falafel to be). I made some cute little falafel to serve with some salad and sauce in a bowl I made, but also made some into larger patties to make sandwiches with for work.

The Vegie Delights range reformulated to make all their products vegan a while ago, so I was excited to try these chicken slices on sandwiches. So much no. They came out of the package like a congealed puck, and I just had to tear it apart as the slices were stuck together. You can see in the photo how I had to rip them up. Plus they were dry, and didn't taste very nice. I'll stick to Tofurky and Field Roast slices for future sandwiches!

My lovely friend Emma and her kitty Sassy, both of whom I met on Instagram, sent me this wonderful care package and card for Christmas. Emma painted Dim Sim's portrait on the card herself, and it is now framed in my room. I was super excited about the Round Up, which I ate immediately. And everything else was lovely as well! I especially enjoyed the sweet tart flavour in the pomegranate chocolate. The candle smells like the most delicious lollies!

Bennetto is a relatively newish brand of vegan chocolate, made in New Zealand. I love this raspberry flavour, as it is packed full of little raspberry pieces. Not only delicious, it is also on the Food Empowerment Project Recommended Chocolate List, so no child slave labour was used in the making of one of my new favourite treats.

What do I love? Silly drinks! When do I want to drink them? Whenever I find them! And such it was with this Turmeric Tonic. It was... very strong with the turmeric flavour. I like turmeric flavour, so that was good. But definitely would not be something everyone could drink. I suppose you could dilute it out with some coconut water. But I just wanted to drink it down!

Why hello there! Jed looking very dapper in another bow tie.


  1. I agree about falafel mixes being too dry!
    Sassy is one of my favorite Instagram stars!!
    Hi handsome Jed!!

    1. Sassy is so cute and funny, I love her!

  2. What a bummer about the overly spicy korma & disappointing deli slices. That looks like a wonderful care package, though. Especially that sweet picture of Dim Sim! :)

    1. Dim Sim makes up for every bad food experience in the world! But that care package was so lovely, no bad food experiences there!

  3. I love Jed so much. What a snuggle bug.

    What a sweet care package!! The portrait is amazing and the treats all look delicious! Too bad about the deli slices. Tofurky will always be the best ;)

  4. Ugh I hate when spice levels lie! There was one time the same brand had two "medium" spice levels. One was barely spicy and the other was actually really hot. Lies.
