Popeye, the sailor man!

Been working overtime and weekends at the gallery so dinner last night had to be a vitamin fest to keep me going!

I made these carrot, courgette and cumin cakes by grating some carrots, courgette, onion and garlic into a bowl, mixing an egg and some flour (wholewheat spelt, but whatever) salt, pepper, mustard seeds, cumin and paprika. Formed into cake-like shapes and fried in a little olive oil for about 8 minutes on each side.

A not so flash

…in the pan
Added a spinach salad and some sweet potato mash with halloumi and felt like Popeye.

While I was waiting for these to cook, my old friend Jen called for a natter. I was absent mindedly staring out the window while on the blower to her, when I finally discovered the source of the funny roof noises that have been keeping me awake!

I think it might live up there!
