Err hellerrr, I have a day off today so I'm sitting here with the door open, looking at the lovely sunshine while I tell you all about my awesome weekend.
This Friday just gone, I went on a camping trip to Cornwall, with the same awesome group that I went to Spain with last year; so that's Jojo & her husband Nick and friend Tabitha. We had a rad time and aside from Jojo & Nick's tent flooding on my first night, due to a ridiculously torrential downpour, the weather was mostly good.
So like I said, torrential rain on the Friday night.... the others got there Thursday but I had to work so met them Friday evening, after about a 7 hour car journey (stupid traffic). It was already raining so we basically just sat in Jojo & Nick's tent avoiding the rain and drinking alcohol. Which meant no food photos. But it was basically Vegusto sausage and smash so don't worry - you'll be seeing more of that!!
Then we decided to get in the car and drive half an hour or so to Falmouth, which is an awesome town that we all fell a bit in love with. The main attraction to this town was a rad little all vegan cafe called Wildebeest. I'm sure Jojo will tell you more about this place on her blog as I believe the owners used to live in Brighton but moved a year or so ago to start this place. And we all LOVED it.
The menu is small but varied and between us, we had almost everything on the menu and everything was outstanding.
Tabitha took this awesome shot for me as I was too lazy to get up when Jojo was taking proper food pics. I thought it was pretty reminiscent of the types of photos I post!
I went for the Chilli. A bowl of spicy lentilly chilli with a nut based (I think) cheese sauce on top. I added loads of their homemade spicy chilli sauce too because I like the spicy! And it was amazing. I kind of wanted to steal the sauce bottle and bring it home with me, but I refrained.
Dessert and I went for a brownie, in fact we all did. I also had some of their chocolate hazelnut ice cream on the side and lemme tell ya, that ice cream was freaking incredible. So damn good. I would've probably married it. Or at least moved in and had babies out of wedlock with it! YUM.
After we begrudgingly dragged ourselves away from Wildebeest we drove a little way so we could go for a wander on the beach and Jojo and I braved the sea for a paddle. Yeah it was freakin cold so this is about as far as we went.
Jojo, Tabitha and I all took a piece of the lime sponge away with us from Wildebeest, because apparently one dessert is not enough. I ate this when we got back to the campsite. It was good cake! Super super sweet but zesty and yummy too.
The next day, we took a trip to the Eden Project, which was really pretty awesome. There was T-Rex and flowers and a Mediterranean garden of chillis and sunflowers and stuff. Plus a rain forest with waterfalls and cashew plants and banana trees. It's pretty magical. However, food wise it didn't look all that promising so we were glad that we'd brought supplies, in the form of a seitan roll that Jojo made us. I put pringles in mine because, crisps.
There was a juice bar there too, between the 2 biodomes (yeah I know they're not really called that, I just wanted to do a mini-tribal in the rain forest but thought it probably wouldn't be appreciated!) (Also does my post title make sense now?) I had the Boost juice which was beetroot, ginger, apple & carrot. It was lovely and in fact I liked it so much, it reminded me that I used to love starting my day with a juice, so I've ordered a juicer!
That's all for now folks.
