This is easily our all-time favourite salad. It’s an oldie but a goodie. I took it to the hens on Saturday and the girls were mad for it. I had forgotten how much I was mad about it too, so we’re having it at home tonight. It’s hands down meatlessness deliciousness, I promise!

It’s been a mad busy couple of weeks. I feel like I’ve just stepped off a rollercoaster ride and that my head is still spinning. The outlaws left on Friday for sunny Singapore. Since then I’ve been catching up on some lost zzzs, laundering like it’s going out of fashion and cleaning like a demon .
Yesterday was International Women’s Day. It made me think about all the amazing women in my life; my friends, my family and my mentors. I’m grateful to each and every one of them; each of them so very different, but incredibly special and each of them has a special place in my heart.
I'm grateful for my friends
Wonder Woman Belinda - such an inspiration.
It’s weird because when I think about it, almost all my role models, and almost all the people I’ve ever admired or looked up to, have been women. Maybe that’s because I was raised single handedly by a single woman or maybe because I just like the way women work and think. I call it Girl Power.
It was quite a coincidence that I spent the day with my friend Pippa who is jetting off to South Africa to get married next week. It was a fun afternoon in with some gorgeous girls and some beautiful bubs, and we had a wonderful time with lots of laughs, a bit of bubbly and some delicious food.
On International Women’s Day I felt immense gratitude not only for the wonderful women in my life, but also for the social and political freedom and the independence I enjoy. I am truly blessed.
International Women’s Day is the official day to celebrate women but every day is a good day to be grateful for the wonderful women in your life, don’t you think?
How did you celebrate International Women’s Day? Who are you thankful for ?
