Midweek Munchies

Munching, munching, munching...

First up, these fun snacks I bought on a sale day. Obviously peanut butter pretzels are always a winner. But the mushroom crisps were amazing! So savoury and tasty.

I had bought this snack pack a while ago and finally tried it out at work one day. That chocolate hazelnut butter was not so much a butter as a block, as you can see in the second picture. It was well before the used by date as well. I ended up snacking on the pretzels, and the brownie-ish block separately. But the block wasn't all that nice. I did try and melt it in the microwave as well, but it just burnt!

San Remo came out with three varieties of vegan ravioli a while ago, available in IGA supermarkets. Of the three flavours, this was the only one that spoke to me. I served them with some Leggo's Stir-Through sauce for maximum ease. The sauce is really nice! The ravioli were OK, though the filling was a bit gritty. I served it over some baby spinach and topped with some cashew hemp parm.

A while ago my Mum went to Tasmania and brought me back these strawberry vegan chocolates. More like white chocolate with strawberry in them. She'd previously brought me back the passionfruit flavour, which were surprisingly excellent because the tanginess of the passionfruit really shone through the sweetness of the white chocolate. But these were a bit on the too sweet side.

More ravioli! This brand is in Woolworths but is normally super pricey, but I found some on sale. I tried them with another flavour of the Leggos stir-through sauce. I didn't like this sauce as much as the other one. But I enjoyed these ravioli a lot.

Here is something non-food related to end up on (before the cat photo, we always end on that, never fear). Some of you blog buddies (I'm looking at you Julie and Sarah) are incredibly talented artists. I am not one of those. But last year I started doing a bit of doodling for fun. I even did a very bad doodle version of Inktober! I thought I might share the first doodle I did last year, back in September, that started my fun doodling now. I do doodle. You too! You do doodle too! Please enjoy my poorly drawn T-Rex.

  1. That's really too bad about the hazelnut butter. Phooey! But I'm glad you have a ravioli option you like. There's something about it that feels so cozy to me.

    1. I love a good ravioli. I have recipes to make them myself, but they are fiddly and take effort so I don't. I do really enjoy having something I can buy.

  2. I love ravioli so much, I used to get the rising moon brand which has a few vegan options, but I haven't been able to find vegan and gluten free ravioli. And lets face it, I'm sure I wouldn't be able to afford it anyway! But I agree with the student turned doctor, it feels very cozy!
    I cannot express how much I love Jed!!!
