Some of you may already be aware that my burger entry won the Googies’ recent burger competition in Folkestone and now holds pride of place on their specials board – at least for another week or so. The story of how this burger came to be can be found here.
I’ll start this post by saying that hopefully the days of horrible, blurry photos like the one above are gone. My camera facilities have improved, although my photography skills have not so you’ll still have to make do with those.
A friend of mine, whose blog you can find here, suggested I start posting recipes for Meatless Monday, a phenomenon which seems to have taken hold in foodie circles on Twitter. The idea is that by cutting out meat once a week you will not only improve your health and well being, but you will also reduce your carbon footprint and take a big step towards creating a more sustainable lifestyle for yourself and your family. I think we can all agree that these are good things and there are few things that irritate me more than people who believe that a meal without meat is somehow incomplete − I’m a poet and I don’t know it! − because vegetables have so much more to offer than looking sad and neglected on the side of the plate.
