Vegan MoFo VI, Day 26 - British Food Friday - Sausage and Mash
That said, at least I can talk about something new. As I said, it occurred to me that I didn't plan anything for BFF (I kept thinking I'd do a roast in the slow cooker, but I never remembered in the morning and was always too tired to prep in the evening) when I was standing around the office trying to decide what to do about the fact that it suddenly started hailing out of nowhere (the forecast for the entire day was sunny).* I decided to go to Tesco to figure out what to buy for dinner while I waited for the bus, and I suddenly had a brainwave that I could do sausage and mash.
It just so happened that Tesco had a new variety of Linda McCartney sausage (red onion and rosemary) on offer for £1 for a packet of 6. Combined with the fact that the regular LM sausages were both more calorific and more expensive, I decided that it might be good if I talked about a product I've never actually talked about before.
I wasn't really sure about them, but they turned out to be really good. They had a nice flavour and texture that were completely different from the regular LM sausages. And they were really tasty even though I burned them! I could see myself buying these again. I served them with some noochy Smash and microwave-steamed veg. It was quick, easy, delicious, and filling, which is exactly what I needed.
I might try to get some extra entries in over the weekend if I can get over this allergy attack and find the energy to do anything. And I'll definitely post next week, since it's nearly the end of MoFo (*single tear*). I'm hoping to at least be able to do Sunday baking (especially since one of my co-workers asked me why the baking had stopped) and some more cookbook challenge stuff. And there might be another restaurant review since Mike totally owes me dinner. We'll see how it goes.
*That was some crappy sentence structure, but I can't be bothered fixing it.
