Hey everyone. I've been mega busy lately (with assignments & attempting to study for end of semester exams)! Surprise surprise.

A few links and then piccies!

HellOnHairyLegs - I wish I was like this blogger when I was in high school. She's an Aussie high school student who's an avowed feminist. Her last few postings have been nothing short of genius.

Feministing - I read this about three times a week. I wish I was brave enough to create an Aussie Feminist blog. But, alas, the legal fraternity is a fraternity and being an outspoken feminist online would severely decrease my job opportunities.

Lastly this opinion piece from the Sydney Morning Herald (alas, in Brisbane we lack a decent newspaper). I know that many of my generation, who didn't do biology at school, did not get any decent sex-ed. And people wonder why we read Dolly magazine? Yes, it was full of crap that made us feel bad about our bodies. But, it gave us information about what was happening to our bodies! I really wish that our parents generation had spoken to us more about stuff like this.

And now, potatoes!

Gnocchi with Spicy Lentil Pasta Sauce.

Gnocchi with Mushroom Olive Sauce (and nooch!)

Sunday roast with Roasted Onion, Garlic and Potatoes!
Thanks for your lovely comments last time. I'm collecting them like a squirrel collects nuts (is that right? We don't have squirrels here) for the long cold winter of assignments and exam study. Oh yeah, the gnocchi recipe is from Vegan With A Vengeance. I've made it every Saturday for the last four weeks. Yummo!

Mmmmm Gnocchi ::drool::

I remember you saying that they'd put lactic acid in your gnocchi (typical!). Did you know that you can get vegan gnocchi at Aldi? (I also recall you saying you hated making it :P)

Kiki said...

Ooh, gnocchi and lentils. Why didn't I think of that!
You just solved the mystery of what to have for dinner tomorrow night.

I actually don't mind the gnocchi making now (I bought a potato ricer and it's ten time easier to not have to pick out bits of hard potato!), it only takes about 25 mins to knead in the flour. Plus I made enough for four dinners the other week (and there's about two bags left).

Can you find many veggie friendly things at Aldi? Last time I couldn't find any pasta sauce without cheese.

Use tinned lentils for extra quick pasta sauce (plus they get all mushy).

Best of luck studying for your exams!!!

Oh my, that gnocchi with spicy-lentil sauce, AND with the mushroom-olive sauce, looks fabulous - yum!

That all looks great.

I'm planning a trip to Brisbane in September. Any tips on where to stay and must eats.

Catherine said...

Amy, your gnocchi and olives looks to DIE for! Delicious!!

Potatoes are a staple at my place, too. I love them in all varieties, especially gnocchi.
Thank you for the links!

Mmm, everything looks good and toasty warm for the cold Brisbane weather I've been hearing about.

I read Feministing everyday! It is the best non-vegan blog ever :)
Also, the food looks incredible!
