Gah! A whole week with no blog posts in between the sunday’s spoonfuls!! What gives?? I hear you cry! Well, I have excuses at the ready: I’m beavering away, finishing off final assignments and studying for an exam. So blogging took a back seat. But this coming week I’ll be posting a recipe for black forest, peanut butter truffles so look out for that. And hopefully once the study madness is over, I’ll be posting more often again  : ) In the mean time, keep your fingers crossed for me! And here are this weeks finds from around the web:

The Good

This video has been doing the rounds on the internet, but incase you missed it, you must watch this adorable three year old explain to his mum why he won’t eat octopus.

The Good-ish

Monsanto has announced that it will drop lobbying efforts in the EU. This is due to low interest from farmers, but also largely because of public opposition – in sum, the march worked! Unfortunately, marketing efforts will continue in Spain, Portugal and parts of Eastern Europe where the industry has gained acceptance. Still, it’s a step in the right direction, and proof that organised community action works!

The Bad and Ugly

This report makes for pretty sombre reading. Sometimes, I find pieces like this reaffirm my convictions for fighting to make this world a better place. Other times, it only serves to make me feel a little overwhelmed. So judge how you’re feeling before you dive in – just know that Dr Nafeez Ahmed at one point makes mention of “the beginning of the global food apocalypse.”

The Delicious

I’ve really been craving a lot of greens lately. That, coupled with my renewed love for cardamom, means that this recipe for ‘Cardamom Roasted Cauliflower tossed with Kale Salad’ sounds like the perfect thing to be making for my ‘take to uni lunch.’



  1. haha, I love the phrase ‘beavering away’.

    Thanks for the great links- love roasted cauliflower! And how I wish Monsanto wasn’t so pervasive here in the U.S.! Happy that progress is happening elsewhere, though. Good luck on your exam! 🙂

  2. I cannot get over how cute that video is! And just full of beautiful truth. Love it!

    That is a happy victory re: monstanto stuff. Good-ish, indeed.

    Fingers crossed for you!

  3. sending some good exam-related-juju. knock it out of the park. I wish i was still at university except for that whole assignment situation.

    cauliflower: i have been doing terrible things to it with cheese. think i better switch to cardamom! x
