The long, awaited Vegan ‘Steak Bake’ has arrived from Greggs.  So I got my running shoes on and got over to Greggs as soon as I could to try one.

With the same lattice pattern as the vegan ‘sausage’ roll, it was easy distinguishable as not being the ‘meat one.’  Greggs has once again gone with Quorn rather than soya or seiten filling.  Sadly, when I got there the bake was lukewarm.  That didn’t stop me from chowing down on it with some brown sauce.  The pasty is the same as the ‘sausage’ roll, which I find a bit dry but doesn’t stop me eating my body weight in the rolls every week.  Inside was a mince like texture rather than a cubed beef like filling.  The gravy was lovey and I could imagine the filing would make a lovely cottage pie if it had mash with it.  I found it surprising meat like tasting with a ‘cheap meat’ feel about it but this may be because I no longer eat meat.  If you do not like the look or taste of meat then this is not for you. Who this is good for is meat eaters, those transitioning to veganism or those who like the taste of meat but choose not to due to their personal ethics. 

At £1.55, only 5p more than the steak bake I find that I’m not being punished price wise for my ethical choices.

Car, What Car?

When I starting writing this post we'd just got rid of the family car. The family car was actually my husbands work car but we only really used it for ferrying the kids to school and back. Well, it's been 3 months now and as per usual I'm only…

Sharing the Love

The other Sunday I ran, well mostly walked, the Southampton half marathon.  When you have 3 hours on your own you do a lot of thinking.  It started off with the girl in front who like myself had a sizable backside, to a very good friend who…

Who Am I?

Who am I? To be honest I don’t know myself. The November before last I hit 30.  I wasn’t ready for it.  30, I was supposed to be an adult, supposed to have my place defined in life.  Instead I was a 30 year old who whilst happily…
