Flexitarian Week 2

This week our challenge was to continue with a mix of vegetarian / non-vegetarian days but fit that around a day out with friends, when we knew we would wish to eat ham, cheese and bread. So Monday ended up a meat day but we started off with a fruit smoothie to give us a head start and a few of our 5-a-day. Thursday I persuaded Thomas to make the dinner, which meant a chicken option as he does the best schnitzel iI've ever had! So we ended up with 2 vegetarian days and 4 days with either meat, chicken or fish, but still plenty of fruit and veg too.

Banana, strawberry and loquat smoothie
Serano ham, pate, cheeses, crackers and bread, olives and red wine
Pistachio icecream .... could not resist!

Erbe's Flexitarian Menu Plan

It has been a long while since we have blogged about our Kitchen and the meals we are creating. Mostly because we have been working on a boat and had meals cooked for us, leaving little opportunity to get creative. But now we are bon land and taking control with a healthy eating plan.

So here's what was on the menu this week...

Porridge oats with apple and pear compote
Cheese Sandwich / Crackers
3- Bean chilli with brown rice

Fresh fruit and greek yoghurt
Lentil, courgette and pear salad
Mexican vegetable wraps, with salsa and guacamole

Baked Fish with Fennel Cabbage and Lemon Gremolata

Continuing on with the Nordic theme diet, as promised I tried out the baked fish and lemon gremolata recipe. The verdict; "Very tasty" from Mr E. and "let's have this again". So that's a resounding success in my book!

Restaurant Review - Asado Gaucho Grill

With friends visiting from the UK along with several evening commitments this last week, things have been a little quiet in the Erbe's Kitchen. Tuesday had us out diving and then pub quizzing. Wednesday I hosted the wine tasting "favourites" at the Green Man pub, on Thursday night Thomas hosted their pub quiz and so on Friday we opted to make a second visit to the newly opened Asado Gaucho Grill, an Argentinian style restaurant just down the road from us in Chalong Bay.
