I’m HOOMMEEE!! I know I’m home every week, but this time I get to STAY here! Apart from going in to hand in my choices for my big project next year, and revision lectures and exams…
Oh, exams – I got my timetable today. My birthday is the 27th of May – I’ve got exams the 24th, 25th, 26th and the 28th! Two ways of looking at that: ‘Thank goodness, no exam on my birthday’, or ‘oh crap, I’ll be spending the whole of the week stuck at uni alone, including on my actual birthday‘. Hmph. Which version shall I go for!? Baaaaahh, darn being a spring baby! Not only do we weigh on average 200g more at birth, we also have exams surrounding the ONE day of the year which is meant to be all about us :'(. Ah well, I think Christmas babies have it worse – my sister has hers on the 16th, and everyone always does the old ‘joint birthday/Christmas’ present, so she never gets as much. Poor love!
Ok, enough ramble!
I rushed packing as much as I could (it still took an hour, and I had to leave a lot of stuff behind), and drove speedily home. I snack on a Cashew Cookie Nakd bar:
I LOVE THEM! That was my 2nd one, and they are sooo delicious – more gooey than a Coco Brownie (ie not crumbly). And they have 2 ingredients – dates and cashews. Very good! I also had a hot chocolate which I drank outside whilst I helped my sister with her dressage (I have quite the bellow in my voice when I need it :p). Tig seems to be going really well, so I hope she’s feeling positive about the one day event she has tomorrow. GOOD LUCK HANNAH & TIG!
For dinner, I decided it was time for Friday Treat Time – stuffed pasta, YEAH baby!! I worked out my last stuffed pasta treat was Sunday, so I was easily due some more 🙂 Does anyone else have any weekly treats like that? Maybe like Cookie Friday a la Tina?!
The stuffed pasta today stuffed with goat’s cheese and caremalized onion – I think that flavah is in my top 3 :D.
To go with it, I had a bit of chicken, and a load of beautifully roasted veggies – parsnip, kabocha (so nearly finished :'(), and leek, covered with cinnamon, agave, s&p and thyme:
They come out SO soft and sweet with that coating, but with a slight kick from the thyme. It is perfection personified IMHO. Actually this whole plateful was perfection personified:
Though I accidently glugged about half a bottle of balsamic vinegar over it 😛
I’ve spent the rest of the evening doing joyous revision (I seem to be on a role since yesterday evening – better run with it!), and breaking for 1/2 an ER episode and my usual evening snack. I really admire my self discipline, being able to watch half an episode at a time!! My roomate (the nasty one who steals) says she just clicks the ‘play all’ button and watches them one after the other…she watched the WHOLE of a Desperate Housewives season in literally 2 days. I don’t get when she works!!?? Ah well!
Ok, that’s me done for the night 🙂 I hope you’re all having a groovy Friday evening, whatever you’re doing. Enjoy!
