For the past couple of months, in an effort to eat less meat (and specifically red meat), we've been eating more chicken and fish, but having more days when we don't have any meat or fish at all. From having 1 veggie day a week, we've now moved to probably 3. Most of the time I cook something vegetarian, but lately we've tried a few bought veggie things like various makes of sausages and burgers. By and large, we've been quite impressed with them, they've certainly come a long way over the past few years. Yesterday we tried Linda Mccartney Mozzarella 1/4 pound burgers, they're made of textured soya protein. Wow, they're lovely! The texture isn't quite the same as a beef burger, but the taste is indistinguishable from a meat burger. A big plus too is that they don't shrink at all, unlike meat burgers. And it didn't repeat on me afterwards, as meat burgers tend to do. We'll definitely be buying those again, we were both really impressed.
Guess what, it's raining again today, although not as heavy as yesterday, apparently 😒
Do you remember years ago when postmen used to come early? We always used to get our post around 07.30, then it got later and later. Down here in this rural area, I didn't really expect it come early, around 10.30 was the usual time. For the past couple of weeks, though, we've not been getting our post until about 2 pm, the post lady says she has parcels to deliver first (wonder why she can't deliver the letters first, and then the parcels?).
Betty sees the arrival of the post as a game when we're in - she generally hears the post van pull up before we do. When the letters come through the flap she races to the door and grabs them, before running off with them. Fortunately, she doesn't eat them, just likes to run around in the hope that we'll chase her. When we're out, however, she doesn't touch the post, it's just sitting there on the doormat when we get home. Little monkey.
Just look at that angelic, butter wouldn't melt, face!
