Still here!!

Just wanted to let you all know I'm still around. I ended up in hospital for 2 weeks - I have lupus which is largely under control but now and again it flares up. So if I'm ever not blogging for long periods of time it's probably because I'm in hospital again enjoying the 'vegan' food. This time they gave me egg salad, cream of mushroom soup, a tuna fish sandwich and even offered me oxtail soup! The worst was when I asked for soy milk on my cereal, I could see it on the trolley and they gave me cows milk. For some reason (I blame the medication) I couldn't tell it was milk until I was near the end, then ended up so sick they had to inject anti nausea medication into my butt - nice.

Anyway, I did have some very good meals too, it wasn't all bad and I am on the mend but still very weak so it may be awhile before I'm blogging again. When I do be sure to expect lots of entries from the new vegan cookbook I got - Vegan Soul Kitchen: Fresh, Healthy, and Creative African American Cuisine by Bryant Terry . It was featured on Heidi Swanson's blog and I had to get it right away. Can't wait to start trying things, it looks amazing and I think it will become a favorite. Love it when new vegan cookbooks come out!!


  1. I'm SO sorry that you've been ill. It's horrific the way they 'cater' for vegans in hospital. I was discussing it just the other day with another friend. You'd think they would serve super-healthy food to help you to get better. I hope you don't end up there again.

  2. Sorry to hear you've been unwell and had to suffer through hospital food!

    Hope you are feeling much better and I am looking forward to more of your fantastic looking food :) xox

  3. Thanks for the well wishes! Penny, I know, it's not great is it? The worst thing is they actually had a vegan menu but no one gave it to me until my 8th day in hospital! It was very good too, nice meals of beans and grains, even a vegan dessert! I was so excited and I ticked off everything I wanted but when it came to meal time they didn't have any of it and would just replace things with non-vegan food (!)

    So, they are half way there I suppose, when they were able to supply things off the menu it was good, tasty and healthy, just a shame it's all so inconsistent.

    Anyway, hopefully I won't be subjected to it again! Thanks again for the nice comments :)

  4. Nice to have you back with us Debbie, look forward to future posts :)
