Hi Folks, welcome to this week’s what’s not cooking weekly round up, I hope you’re enjoying your weekend!
I can’t believe it’s March already. Can you? 😮
Lynne and I have a caravan booked for a week in Glen Clova at the end of this month and we can’t wait. Here’s a photo below from the archives and hopefully I’ll be able to bring you some up to date ones with us both after that trip!
Thanks to everyone who commented on the healthy chickpea curry on Tuesday. UK readers might like to give the Jack Link’s beef snacks a go after my review on Wednesday which contains the money off voucher link. The photos on Thursday from Liam and I’s Scottish mountain adventures climbing Driesh and Mayar, went down really well too, cheers! 😀
Inspiration and Wellbeing
Here I like to share with you here some of the inspiring and motivational articles I’ve read this week. These little snippets remind me just to keep going, and to remain focussed, and I hope they have a similar effect for you too, whatever challenges life might be chucking at you.
http://tinybuddha.com/blog/using-social-media-growth-minimizing-negative-effects/ from Tiny Buddha, I found this a great reminder of how to not let social media take over your life and to use it only to help you grow.
http://www.marcandangel.com/2013/03/26/6-reasons-someone-wishes-they-were-you/ from Marc and Angel. It’s important to remember what you have, compared to others who are less fortunate.
http://www.marcandangel.com/2015/02/15/7-ways-to-change-your-attitude/ some things in life you just can’t change. Changing your focus or attitude might help you to see things differently.

Out and About
Lynne and I had fun bowling on Wednesday. We’d stuck it on our “to do” list a while back and took the opportunity to enjoy time together when it was quieter during the week.
Not a particularly great score from myself but I couldn’t resist capturing the winning score. 😈
Last weekend I completely forgot to add our weekly menu planner for the week ahead. Sorry about that! In the excitement of editing all the hillwalking photographs I wanted to share with you, that just kind of slipped my mind. Here’s this weeks…… 🙂
Monday Lunch – Ham and veg soup
Monday Dinner – New spiced lentil recipe I’m still working on
Tuesday Lunch – Creamy sweetcorn chowder
Tuesday Dinner – New healthy burger recipe I’m still working on
Wednesday Lunch – Broccoli and stilton soup (publishing this recipe on Tuesday)
Wednesday Dinner – Chorizo and lentil Stew
Thursday Lunch – Yellow split pea and ham soup

We had an awesome night last night at a dinner party with some really great friends of ours from Dundee. I’ll be spending the day taking it easy today (enough said – wine) hence this weeks what’s not cooking being a little shorter than usual, so I’ll sign off here 😉
See you for Tuesday’s recipe.
Did you do anything exciting for your weekend?
