I’ve always been fascinated with food and what other people are eating, so I’ve loved reading What I Ate Wednesday posts – but never been able to participate because what I eat.. well what do I eat? Nothing worth sharing, and what I do eat is often so bizarre I’d never want to put it out there.
However I do have some better, more on track moments. I thought that I would share a few favourites from the past week with you. There isn’t much green in here – I could say the capsicum in the salad and the splash of lime juice count, as well as the green grapes!
Favourite Lunch -
I’m loving the tanginess of this sandwich filling. Another variation that I often eat uses tinned tuna instead of tofu. I also love to add chopped beetroot, corn and onion to hummus.
Favourite salad -
Favourite treat – Home-made Ice-cream! Please do not snark at my ‘mixing bowl’. I have a VERY basic kitchen and this was bigger than my real mixing bowl! How appropriate to make ice cream in an old ice cream container lol.
Ice cream is a huge fear food for me, as are cream and condensed milk so this was a huge but worthwhile challenge. I’m definitely going to do it again, and experiment with flavours – maybe coffee, maybe mango.. It could have used a splash of vanilla essence – but I didn’t have any.
Favourite chill out -
Coffee never lasts very long with me. Someone needs to make a heat-resistant hydration back pack so I can sip coffee every minute of the day, hands free.
Shalimar is back on her lead – after 1. being very naughty and running away! and 2. A neighbour telling me to keep her out of the communal gardens in case she ‘hurts the flowers’… really? She’s a cat, and she’s snuffled those flowers for almost three months and caused no harm. So sad – but I’m in the process of organising an enclosure to be built outside the front of my unit, around her favourite snuffle-place and under the window where her cat-door conveniently happens to be. Hopefully soon she will have access to HER area whenever she wishes, and no save-the-flowers neighbours will be able to ruin the fun.
And I was so chuffed that I had to include my favourite compliment -
My helper from HACC (Home and Community Care – helps me with everyday things that being ill means I need help with – shopping, cleaning, transport etc) said that I looked like I was channelling Victoria Beckham yesterday. She cracked me up! I am missing the sky-high heeled shoes and the utter cool, stylishness she exudes. And the extreme skinniness.
I bought this dress from an Op Shop and really like it – the photo (and myself) do not do it justice. It’s a warm, heavy wool dress by Cue, perhaps a bit large, but I really liked the shape of it. I’m stuck wearing my utterly UNcool shoes because of my very sore feet and legs! If I don’t have to walk far, I can wear ballet flats, but heels are out forever sadly.
Well I hope you all enjoyed my post and were not too grossed out at the food I ate!!! Happy Wednesday. And Shalimar says hello… Really, she’s clawing at me because she is jealous at all the attention the computer gets. Time to go play with her
