Pepper Fajita Boats – Meatless Mondays

pepper fajita boats - meatless monday

I LOVE Mexican food and flavours so this little dish hit the nail right on the head! What was even better was that it was one of the “what the heck have I got in the cupboards/fridge” meals!

As Rachel has said to us all we are like stoma sisters…and she is right these girls feel like my sisters. Read more

So Louise has chosen mushrooms for the last week of maSTOMAchef which to most ostomates strikes the fear of blockage into them! But a good mushroom dish one of Natalie’s favourite things to eat, it took me a long time pre-stoma to be able to eat them since being a kid and can only eat them roasted or chopped super small and sauteed.  Read more
