Wholewheat Aubergine Lasagne

Aubergine Lasagne with a tomato, black olive and beetroot salad

Seeing herself (Mrs. Any Given Food) post to Facebook yesterday that – and this a very public statement, mind – she would have dinner ready on and waiting when I got home from work, and that I would eat every bit of it, was a rare treat to behold. Not that she would be cooking, but to make a statement like that is a bold move.

It was in comment to the post yesterday on National Vegetarian Week which is running in Ireland and the UK until this coming Sunday. Driving ourselves to cook at home for the week and wind up with a dinner and lunch for the following day, the good lady took up the challenge last night, starting things off with a wholewheat aubergine lasagne accompanied by a tomato, black olive and beetroot salad.

Food Bytes #1

Food Bytes #1

Food Bytes #1: 10 tasty blog posts from international food bloggers from February 26 to March 2 2012.

For some time now I’ve been looking at adding to the Foodie Roundup series of posts that go out on a Sunday, spotlighting ten blog posts from Irish food bloggers (or food bloggers based in Ireland). So today, I’m kicking off Blog Bytes, which is similar in style, only it looks at food blogs outside of Ireland for recipes, opinion pieces and the other tasty treats that you would find in the usual Foodie Roundup.

So, for Saturday 3rd March and the first of the Food Bytes reading digest, here’s ten posts from food bloggers outside of Ireland from Saturday 25th February to Friday 2nd March.

That’s it for the first installment of Food Bytes. This blog post series will continue each Saturday through to the end of the year and we’ll see how it goes. I reckon that gives me about 400+ blog posts to shine more of a light on as well. Don’t forget that Foodie Roundup #40, the roundup of Irish food blogs goes out tomorrow morning for your Sunday read. With a Saturday and Sunday digest each week, I think that will be enough for now, don’t you?

Foodie Roundup #31

Foodie Roundup #31

Foodie Roundup #31 - August 21st to 27th 2011

This edition of the Foodie Roundup comes to you from somewhere around the middle of the 9.10am Dublin to Waterford train, having spent the night in Dublin between different coffee shops, restaurants, The Abbey Theatre, the Which Course fair at the RDS and more besides. In heading back to Kilkenny to get the third and final day of OUT For The Weekend, here’s a look at ten blog posts from Irish food bloggers you may have missed this past week.

That should give you something to kick off your Sunday. Don’t forget that if you’re around the Carlow area today or fancy a trip to Carlow town for your Sunday afternoon that you’ll find A Taste Of Carlow running in the centre of town from 2pm to 6pm. More details here.

Happy Sunday!

Foodie Roundup #20

Foodie Roundup #20 - April 3rd to April 9th 2011

Getting things gradually back on track, I’ve finally got the time to click ‘publish’ on Foodie Roundup #20, due about 3 weeks back and sitting buzzing at me in the drafts since Sunday morning. I’ve made my way to Dublin a Kitchen Hero do at the Westbury for the afternoon so while I beat off traffic blues with a top class latte from Cafe Cagliostra, here’s ten posts you may have missed during the week from some of Ireland’s top food bloggers.

Getting my Sunday mornings back thanks to the opening of Shifting next weekend, normal service should resume once more. Also realise that I didn’t bring any class of a jacket or jumper to Dublin so here’s hoping the rain stays off for the afternoon’s stroll across town.
