For breakfast, I took TLG to St Malo Bakery at Crows Nest.
We shared a raspberry muffin (well, TLG picked out all the raspberries and I was left with the muffin). Thankfully the whole thing was yummo. I liked that it was not too sweet. They make a nice cup of coffee too. You can read more about the bakery here.
It was a happy accident that we went there, as they also make cakes and I bought a flourless chocolate mud cake as my FIL's birthday cake. I'll post about it later.
Then we went to Green Gourmet for lunch. They have a shelf with brochures at the front of the store and I found a product catalogue for Lamyong, a company that make vegetarian/vegan products. There are some good recipes in the catalogue as well. I emailed them about stockists in Sydney, so hopefully I can make some of the dishes at home in the future.
And finally for dinner, I made chickpea and couscous filled capsicum. I followed the suggestions from the recipe comments and added garlic and feta cheese, and I served it with rocket and ox heart tomato salad.
I love the kick from the cayenne pepper, and the contasting sweetness of the dates. Add to that the juicy freshness of the capsicum, the nutty flavours from the chickpeas, and the dish is a winner. It's super easy to make, and low fat to boot. I'm thinking about adding this to our Christmas lunch menu.
I finish off the evening with a few Mint Slices, hehe I needed something naughty!

P.P.S. It's only five weeks until Fiji! Maybe I should set up a countdown clock on the side of the blog.
