vegan Dairy Free Cheese Savoury



I made vegan cheese savoury yesterday

A couple of ingredients can be found available in larger supermarkets or health food stores...
Dairy free salad cream or mayonnise,
Dairy free hard cheese,
You will also need 1 small brown onion,
1 carrot






Grate the cheese and put it in a container,
Peel and grate the carrot and add to the cheese,
Peel and finely chop the onion,
Add as much mayonnaise as you like, bearing in mind the more you add the more sloppy the result!

The cheese savory can be used in any sandwich filler capacity, or even in wraps or as a topping for baked potatoes, curries or whenever you fancy a cheesy accompaniment. Legend has it that Cheese Savoury originates in the North of England particularly in the North West, as a cheap way to make cheese last longer.

Discovery Museum

Yesterday Benni and I went to the Discovery Museum. I haven't been able to walk much recently as I badly injured my foot. Some gentle exercise was prescribed so the Discovery Museum seemed like a good idea.

There is an exhibition about the history of local manufacturing. Lots of things used to be made locally.
We could only think of a few currently
Cars at Nissan Sunderland,
Offshore Platforms at Wallsend
Wind Turbines at Blyth?

Decluttering people's furniture

To achieve the minimalist look, the furniture had to go... plenty of light coming in and space to sit and meditate!
A local charity collected it all and took it away in their van

After...


If you want to sell or donate furniture, make sure it has the fire safety labels on, don't cut them off!
