When the cat's away...

Now before I say it, I just want to make one thing clear: I love my boyfriend to bits. He's lovely, and I love spending time with him, and I hate it when we're apart.

The only one thing I quite like about not having him around at dinnertime is the fact that I've only myself to please, and I can make something that he would think "weird" that I might not make myself normally, when I'd tend to make a meal that we could both enjoy.

Take today for example; I'd had a long day at Uni - the school year is coming to an end and this is my last week of classes but I have three assignments plus a presentation due by Friday! So I've been camped out at the library all day. When I came home, I wanted something quick yet nutritious, and there was a recipe I'd had my eye on for a while - Anne's black bean and spinach burgers.

I followed Anne's recipe almost to the letter but I substituted kale for spinach, oat flour for wholemeal and about half a fresh chilli in place of chilli powder.

These were so good - so good in fact that I didn't snap a photo of the finished burgers! The only thing with them was, I started by cooking them in a pan but found they were a bit wet still so I put them on a baking tray and into the oven for ten minutes and then the texture was perfect!

Another amazing recipe that I made recently but didn't manage a photo of - Oh She Glows Salt & Vinegar Chickpeas!

I love it when my husband's traveling and I only have to cook for myself! Lately, he's been more interested in trying my "weird" food, but it's fun to have free time to experiment with new recipes, and only ruining MY dinner if they fail. ;)

I'm excited to see what's available at Katie's bake sale tomorrow!!
