SPECIAL POST #2: Cookery 101

Experimentation in the kitchen is the theme of this week’s special post. I know that last week was food as well, but who doesn’t love food.

Food (1)

Chilli con carnie is the food of God’s, loving it!

This week I had chilli con carnie with rice on Thursday and chilli con carnie with baked potato on Friday. Why am I telling you this? I have no idea.

Today (well yesterday by the time I finish writing this) I tried my hand at making a chocolate cake. And not just any chocolate cake, the biggest chocolate cake you’ve ever seen!

Hungry yet? I know I am. And I’ve still got half of it left to eat.

Food (8)

YUM!

  • Happiness: 8/10
  • Workload: 7/10
  • Last meal: Baked potato with baked beans and tuna. Then CAKE!
  • Thought for the day: If you ever want to make women happy, make them a chocolate cake!
  • SPECIAL POST #1 : Lunch

    This is the first of what I hope to be many “special posts” where I can focus on particular thing I’m thinking about or something I want to share with you all.

    One of my “new year’s resolutions” is to have a different thing for lunch each week. Last semester I just had “… on toast” every day. This was good for a while because it was cheap, quick, easy and tasty. But it wasn’t exactly variety:

    • Monday:      beans on toast
    • Tuesday: spaghetti on toast
    • Wednesday:    jam on toast
    • Thursday:    beans on toast
    • Friday:    spaghetti on toast
    • and so on…

    So this year I thought it would be a good idea to try something different. Specifically, try something different every week.

    So far I’ve tried a few things:

    • Week 1: Sandwiches
      • with cucumber, ham, coronation chicken, lettuce
    • Week 2: Wraps
      • with cucumber, ham, coronation chicken, lettuce, carrots
    • Week 3: Pita Bread
      • with cucumber, ham, tuna & sweetcorn,  lettuce, carrots

    OK, so not that much variety, but still in a different shape!

    But, I need some ideas for the future. Here are some ideas I’ve had:

    • Soups (this week)
    • Baguettes
    • Omelettes (I’ve never made an omelette before!)
    • Ciabatta

    What do you think? Have you got any ideas?

    • Happiness: 7/10
    • Workload: 7/10
    • Last meal: Cereal (that’s enough of the jokes now)
    • Thought for the day: Being home is getting weirder every time
