A Vegan Science Lesson and a Vegan Dinner

I love me some Etsy as you might have already guessed from this blog. I heart Etsy so much in fact that I willingly signed up to most of their mailing lists. This product was on the Etsy “dudes” email I received a few days ago.

Poor Kermit

This is why I love Etsy, for all its extreme crafting. It is not just about the nice knits like granny squares and wrist worms. Now the squeamish cannot get out of their biology lessons anymore!

Also here is a vegan recipe for when you are free-styling cooking with no kitchen.


  • 6 carrots
  • 1 quarter of a squash you got to use up
  • 1 small potato
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • Half an onion leftover from cheese and onion crumpets the other day when you had a cooker *sigh*
  • water
  • curry powder


Spend 10 minutes looking for your slow cooker, find said slow cooker in mess piled on dining room table under dust sheet. Clean dust off slow cooker. Go to top of stairs landing space and plug in slow cooker, fill kettle from bathroom sink and boil it on top of washing machine plugged into an extension cord in the dining room. Drop stock cube straight in slow cooker. Pour in boiled water after carefully carrying kettle upstairs. Gather remaining vegetables from fridge in the lounge and locate knife and chopping board from spare bedroom. Chop veg, plonk in slow cooker. Switch on slow cooker and leave soup cooking for 5odd hours. After cooking time find your hand blender then bung it in the slow cooker bowl then try to blend soup without it splattering everywhere and fail. Try to blend every last lump of chopped veg and fail. Realise that you forgot to add the spices earlier. Add a little bit too much curry powder by tipping it straight in the soup instead of using a measuring spoon. Serve and enjoy. Voila!

soup landing ahoy!

BTW I am not vegan but for what ever reason I really enjoy reading vegan food blogs. I almost feel as if I am absorbing some of their healthy, nutritious vibes through my computer screen, because if I served Rob lentils for dinner he would leave me!
