Recent Things: Catching Pikachu in Sydney, Puppy Love and Lots of Laughs

Recent Things in the Southern In Law World

HAPPPPPPPPY FRIDAY! And happy almost end of July. 

Well... not so happy if you're reading this from the Northern Hemisphere because, if you're anything like me, you're probably dreading the fact that WINTER IS COMING and you're entering the last month of summer. 

Meanwhile, I'm over here in Australia counting down the days until Spring arrives. Luckily for me, August is always a month full of good stuff as it's my Dad's birthday (on Monday!), my birthday (on August 12th) and also the birth month of many of my awesome friends so that means there's plenty of cake to be eaten ;) 

But before we get to August, 
Here's what's been happening in our world recently! >>

Recipe: Italian Style Baked Lentil Bites (Vegan & Grain Free)


Vegan Italian Baked Lentil Bites Recipe - low fat, gluten free, vegan, healthy, grain free, low calorie, paleo, meatless meatballs, egg free, dairy free

If there are any Italian Nonnas out there reading my post, I'm sorry. I know what you're thinking Basta! Ma, che sei grullo?! (and now you're probably laughing at my horrendous Italian)

Yeah yeah, I know.. but that's why I said Italian Style, Nonna! 

And if you're not Italian, I'm hoping (because my Italian is really rusty) that I just said; 
Basta! =  Enough!
Ma, che sei grullo?! = Are you crazy/silly/stupid/joking?!

Whilst these lentil bites are definitely not a traditional Italian recipe or made with traditional Italian ingredients, I can promise it's highly likely they'll become a weekly tradition for you too.

These baked lentil bites are jam-packed with nutritional goodness but taste like cheesy, garlic-y, herby balls of goodness... but they have a secret. In fact, there's no cheese in these babies - or dairy, for that matter.

They are vegan meatless meatballs that are perfect for enjoying on their own, on top of salads, served on top of pasta or however you fancy - and they're addictingly delicious. 

Inspired by my favourite falafel recipe, they're super simple to make and are a huge hit with even the fussiest of eaters.

They're crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside and don't be surprised if they disappear before your eyes!

Best of all? They are SO easy to make and can even be made into veggie burgers if you don't feel like rolling or scooping! 

So let me share the recipe with you! >>
