Good morning.

I was sorely tempted yesterday.  I set to and made our traditional vegetarian sausage rolls; they're really delicious and a family tradition.  You can take or leave your normal ones but we MUST have the vegetarian ones.

The amount in the recipe plus one pack of puff pastry (not pre-rolled, that's way too expensive) made thirty two rolls.  Beth had two - acting as quality control, you see - and the remaining thirty went straight in the freezer to open freeze before they went into a box for protection.  The house smelled wonderful and I was, as I said, greatly tempted but no, I remained firm.
It helped that I need some for our girls' lunch, some for Mum and Dad's Christmas lunch, some for me and mine on Christmas day and a few leftover so I have just about enough really!

They're not that expensive either, compared with similar quality bought ones, if indeed you can find good vegetarian sausage rolls - I haven't yet.
The recipe is here:
I didn't make the pastry (I'm not that daft), I used dried herbs, more grated cheese than it says and philly light and a splash of milk instead of the cream (no way am I buying a carton of double cream for just three tbsps).
Dead easy!  Good old Delia!

I feel the Christmas season has started now I've made these.

Today's plans are as follows:
B:  fresh fruit and natural yogurt
Oddly enough, right at the moment I'm disinclined to eat much breakfast so I may as well go with the flow and eat light.
SW:  free

L:  the spicy lentil and tomato soup I made yesterday was really scrummy and I have a portion left for a trouble-free lunch today.
SW:  free unless I have some dunking bread and if I do, that will be my healthy extra B

D:  baked salmon, mushroom sauce, sprouts and runner beans
I will make the sauce as I did the other day - bit of onion, sliced mushroom and soft cheese.  Apart from the salmon, it's all pretty good value and the runners were frozen in summer from the garden.
SW:  the cheese will be half my heA and the rest is free

Ss:  milk (the other half on my healthy extra A, fruit, maybe a Mullerlight as I stocked up again yesterday.
