Midweek Munchies

That time of the week again!

I think I am almost caught up on sharing all of the soups I tried over winter. This bean and vegetable soup was pretty good, served with some sourdough.


I mentioned before that Alpro almond yoghurts had become available (in mango and strawberry flavours), but then I found out they also have cashew yoghurt! Two flavours, vanilla and passionfruit. The vanilla is nice and smooth, but I love the passionfruit. It is so tangy and great.

We have a chain of shops here called The Reject Shop, and I never think to go in there. They have a very small food section, mostly it is random house things. But I did pop in one day to see if they had any good food on sale, and they did! I got all those bags of protein balls for $1, when they are normally $3. I keep these in my locker at work when I need a quick snack. Also some grain cups, and a soup (that I have not had yet because too hot for soup).

I get this Mock Beef Jerky from an Asian shop near me. I love it! It is mushroom based, and has a strong five spice flavour. So good.

I posted about this new brand of vegan mac and cheese a while ago. I originally found them in Coles, but they are available at heaps of places now. There are three flavours, and I tried the original first up. It had a bit of an odd taste to it. Cheesy but with something else that I couldn't quite put my finger on.

Well & Good Regular Cheddar Mac & Cheese

Behold a Grilled Cheeseburger that I had for lunch one day. A leftover Vegie Delight's Smoky BBQ Patty, some cheddar Daiya, and some gherkin relish. Once I put it in the bun, I stuck it in the panini press.

One morning I looked out the window into the back yard and this friend was hopping about. Please excuse the very bad photo, but I was taking it through the window with the zoom on. I asked a friend who knows about birds, and he said this is a pheasant coucal. Which is a type of cuckoo with a pheasant-like appearance. Pretty cool!

Jed Jr and Jed

Why we called him Jed Jr, because he looks a bit like our clinic boy Jed!


  1. It's important for yogurt to be smooth. Many non-dairy yogurt isn't for whatever reason. I find gritty yogurt really unappealing. I'm glad yours was smooth and you enjoyed it!

    1. It is only very recently that Australia has started getting decent non-coconut yoghurts here. We have been behind in the yoghurt game for a long time.

  2. I love cashew yogurt! There's a brand here called The Forager Project and it's one of my favorites!
    I seriously cannot express how much I am in love with both Jeds!!!Please show us al the pictures!!

    1. Baby Jed has gone to his new home already. Alas. But big Jed is ours forever. But I still have lots of kitten photos to share.

  3. The grilled cheeseburger sounds awesome! Neat pic of the pheasant coucal, and both Jeds are way too cute!

    1. I haven't seen the bird again. I wish I knew their story. Where did they come from? What were they doing there? Did they get back to their home OK?
