I'm finally getting some reading done again!
Monday, 3 May 2021
I haven't written much about going vegan (in fact, I haven't been doing very well with the blog at all lately) and blogging about food with spur-of-the-moment, unstylized, mobile phone photos is probably a mistake; photos are everything when it comes to food blogging, even if some people manage to make their gorgeous photos look completely effortless.
Nonetheless... I am going to post my terrible photos anyway!
Tonight I had my first go at making a vegan cheese sauce. What I would really like to do is to replicate the cauliflower cheese pies from Higgidy, that we used to eat (and occasionally still sneakily do), but one thing at a time - I wanted to try to get the cheese sauce down first.
I was loosely following the idea in this recipe (all inadequacies are of course my own) - i.e. making a bechamel as you would usually, but with non-dairy fat, and vegan milk, then adding mustard and seasoning and nutritional yeast. I used almond milk, and olive oil-based vegan butter.

My new front room floor is in!
Today, the builders are coming in to finish off the skirting boards, and they've promised to put my venetian blind up for me. Then on Friday, I am going to attempt to take delivery of a lovely, secondhand, Laura Ashley sofa from Facebook Marketplace. I say 'attempt' because I'm not at all certain it will fit through the front door! It is similar sized (plus just a few small inches) to the one I've got, so fingers crossed. Otherwise the poor seller will have to take it away again(!)
