You can make it on your own my darling

My only objection to Ed Harcourt‘s brilliant “Heart of a Wolf” (which you can listen to on his site) is that wolves are supposed to be social animals (hence: a pack of wolves). Then again, maybe the contradiction is intentional. Anyway, went to see him last night and life’s a bit better now. I sort of preferred him with a band (last summer in London; I was hoping to see the bass player again :) but he did manage to produce impressive layers of sound all on his own. Maybe that’s the thing, though: solo versions of songs needn’t be so similar to band ones. Although if you’re selling a new album I guess it makes sense that you might want to try to sound like the album you’re selling… I don’t know. I did really enjoy it, band or no band. And now I have an Ed jukebox in my head, breakfast in my stomach (oats, with cocoa powder added for Friday luxury, and jasmine tea to keep me going) and, um, hope. Just a general feeling of hopefulness.

But on to food, what with it being the Vegan Month of Food and all. I’ve realised that I eat a lot of leftovers, which do not an interesting MoFo  post make. I also eat a lot of this – nice but not very interesting:

Just salad

A salad of whatever happens to be in the fridge.

(Sorry about the bad picture. There’s hardly any light in my flat, I hate the flash, and most of all, I have no idea what I’m doing with a camera. I’m getting more interested in photography, though, now that I’m taking food pics almost every day.)

And I probably bake more than I should. Yesterday, the rest of the dough for the cabbage pie became the shells of very cute (even though I say so myself) prune pies/pasties:

Prune pies

Not very sweet at all - which is how I like my pies.

I’m ashamed to admit that there are no pies left. Not that there were that many to begin with, but still.

I need to dig out some new recipes to try if I am to have any food to post about next week. If all else fails, except some old baking favourites… Have a good weekend, everyone! More food etc. anon.
