That’s a bit of a strange title– a What I Ate followed by a cemetery tour. But it is what it is and as I’ve slacked off blogging big time, I thought I’d put it all in one big post.
First up, a bunch of eats over many weeks. Maybe months as I’ve just checked the date of my last What I Ate: March!!! How did that happen?! Anyway, I can’t even remember what some of these are, but I’ll do my best. First up is a Gardein beefless burger. I prefer to make my own patties but every now and then I’ll get a packet of Gardein:
A basic too-dry tofu veg meal made with Japanese curry powder:
I found this terrible photo of a Suzy Spoon’s veg shnitzel I had months ago. The shnitzels were okay but probably not something I’d splurge on again:
Cornflour coated tofu and veg with a heap of home made gomasio:
A gyros roll made with the Veggie Gyros packet stuff by Viana:
A sweet potato and kidney beans peanut stew with pearl cous cous:
From Vegan Sandwiches Save The Day, the country sausage sandwiches (using tofu instead of tempeh):
I think this tofu was marinated in a little ginger, garlic, soy and orange juice then thrown in to a messy sandwich:
A simple bean and veg ratatouille:
Friends of Coburg Cemetery has been running some tours this year, so my son and I signed up for their Monuments and Headstones tour. It was one of those sunny but very cold days where taking photos with cold hands was a little difficult. I go past Coburg Cemetery a fair bit and there are a lot of very old graves that never have any flowers or obvious signs of visitors. I’ve always wondered who these people were and so when I heard about the tour, I booked straight in. There are a few famous names and one surprise was the plain nondescript grave of Charles Web Gilbert, a renowned sculptor known for works such as the Matthew Flinders sculpture outside St Paul’s Cathedral in Melbourne. There’s an information sign next to this grave, and other graves too.
