Happy 2014! We hope you have all had a wonderful and relaxing Christmas and New Year.
We are back in Scotland and back in the world of blogging. After a much needed and restful vacation, we’re very excited for the year ahead and have lots of fun ideas to share with you guys. We will continue with our usual DIY, product and food posts, but this week we’ll be starting a series of posts on cheap and easy soups. We love a good bowl of soup in winter, but are complete rookies when it comes to soup-cooking. So hopefully this series will inspire us (and you!) to make more soups from scratch instead of buying the ready-made kind, saving money and packaging. win-win.
We will also be embarking on a series of week-long ‘eco-challenges’, in an attempt to become more environmentally conscious consumers. The first eco-challenge will be to not eat processed foods in order to avoid the excessive energy and packaging that goes into ready-made meals and snacks. After googling the definition of ‘processed foods’ we realised that we’d have to make some concessions so we’re going to allow milk, cream, butter, flour and oil & vinegar but apart from that we’ll be subsisting on fruit and vegetables, beans and grains. We’ll be posting updates on our progress and recipes we use throughout the week so watch this space.
Wish us luck!
