I’m writing this on June 17th, the same day as I wrote and published my last post. Stranger things have happened.
Today has been most unproductive. I had all these bright ideas about what studying I had to do but I think I’ve been indoors too much so I’m going stir crazy. Yup. And I made the fatal mistake of having a shower and getting glammed up for my night out too early in the day. Now I want to exercise but I can’t be bother to shower and re-do my make-up after a sweatfest. Anyone else had that dilemma? Suffice it to say, instead I have done a bit cleaning and A LOT of faffing. Bummer. What a waste of a day! But these things happen.
So, I guess I should share some food stuff since this a food blog… I was going to bake but I couldn’t be bothered (are you noticing a theme… laziness, perhaps?). Ok, food.
Today’s lunch was a mix of whatever was lying around in my fridge,
Quinoa, roasted parsnips & sweet potatoes, cucumber, carrots. With some cashews (possibly my fave nut). Nut surprisingly, this did not fill me up for long. I just cannot get too grips with portion control! I am rubbish at judging how much to give myself. Anyone have any tips? I’d rather not need a snack 2 hours later.
Ooo, I recieved two new cookbooks in the post this week. When I’m sitting at home, working on my computer I have an awful habit of buying stuff that I don’t really need. But one can never have too many cookbooks, right? Right.
La Dolce Vegan I bought on a friend’s recommendation. She said it’s her most used cookbook (always a good sign). The second, Appetite for Reduction, I bought as I read an excellent, glowing review of it in a foodie magazine a few months ago. I haven’t cooked anything from them yet. But I’m sure you’ll hear about it when I do.
Ok, I should go now. The Hubs is about to come home from work.
Fast forward to now, Saturday morning. I have diligently uploaded photos from last night’s meal and am ready to bore you with them…
Whenever we go to Tampopo, I always get the same thing: Nonya Vegan Curry and Sauteed Greens. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
I think this image of the greens may be upside down…
That’s me, btw- more than ready to eat! Excuse the red eye. (I realise that my chopsticks are upside down, I did rectify this before using them to inhale the food).
The hubs (left) and our friend. Nothing much I can say about this really, it’s a pretty representative image.
Twas a great evening but we watched the 10pm showing of Senna and I was falling asleep in parts of the film (due to a mix of tiredness and lack of interest).
How was your friday night? Fun weekend plans? More importantly, any tips on determining adequate portion sizes? Ideally I want to feel full/satiated for a good 3-4 hours after eating, but not stuffed. Thanks!
