Just Beet It….

Meat Free Monday again, and I wanted to continue with the use it up theme.

In the freezer I have half a pack of Filo pastry and the fridge holds half a soft Goats Cheese and some cooked vacuum packed Beetroot – so Beetroot and Goats Cheese parcels with Potato Salad and Rocket Salad.🤗


I take 2 leaves of Filo pastry, taking one at a time, paint them with melted butter and put one on top of the other, then add a couple of thick slices of beetroot, one next to the other and top with 2 thick slices of Goats cheese, I like to add a bit of sweet chilli sauce, but caramelised onions works well too, or just leave it plain, then pull the edges of the pastry together to make a parcel shape, brush with butter – put into a preheated oven at 180 for 15-20 mins.

The potato salad is just sliced cooked new potato, sliced spring onions, mixed with Mayonaise, a teaspoon of grain mustard, mix together till all covered.


Plate up and serve with side salad – Simple and SO tasty, one of my favourite veggie meals 😇


Pud is Butterscotch flavoured Angel Delight – and why not…..

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
