Consuming a Small Zoo

Saturday, October 20th, 2012

Amazing night out at Khublai Khan in Edinburgh for the Boy’s birthday.

Choose your veg, your spices, your sauce and then your meat…and what choice!

I consumed in total 5 bowls:

1) Kangaroo
2) Baby Octopus, Squid, Prawn and Mussels
3) Camel
4) Wildebeest
5) Rabbit, Venison and Pheasant

As well as starters of Kangaroo haggis/Wild Boar spring rolls…made for a delicious and stomach stuffing meal.

Consuming epic food at Wannaburger for lunch, followed by purchasing American sodas, has made me want to nap…ready for tonight…


How Have I Lived Without…

Hotel Chocolat Chilli Hot Chocolate…oh my god so yummy!



You Know You Live With a Geek When…

Sunday, June 17th, 2012

…You find yourself with three sets of keyboards in front of you, and this is deemed normal behaviour.

Each keyboard has a purpose too [from bottom to top]…

1) To wirelessly control the computer hooked up to the TV across the room from me.

2) To be used whilst doing accounting (number pad FTW).

3) This is part of the laptop which is running the accounting software.


Scratching a Chocolate Itch

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

Craving something sweet and full of chocolate, I set out to use up some leftover chocolate chips in a stomach satisfying fashion.

After looking at new dessert recipes, I settled on sticking with my old favourite…chocolate cake.

I’m considered an old hand at making cakes now, which is why I end up making them so often, and so I like to change it up when I can. By reducing the amount of flour, replacing it with cocoa and chocolate chips I managed to create a decadent brownie-esque cake.

So here it is, my craving quenching, soul satiating chocolate brownie cake with milk, white and dark chocolate chips. The homemade gooey chocolate sauce isn’t needed but made a great addition to my already tastebud teasing dessert.


Walking Back in Time

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

Went out for a LONG walk with the boy today – including a stop at O2 shop for a new SIM card.

We ended up in the park on the same set of benches where the boy first asked me out almost 6 years ago. It was kind of nice to look back and see just how much had changed in that time.

The bridges over the river still had the same amount of rust on them but there were no longer any cows or grass in the field on the other side. And there definitely were no sticks beneath the bench for the boy to break into pieces through nervousness.

But there was still him and me, still wearing skate shoes and ratty jeans. And despite being older and our conversation flowing with an ease that can only stem from years of sharing events, thoughts and opinions, we are still just as invested as we were back then.

And all I could think was that I’m glad I said yes.



Window Shopping

Friday, May 4th, 2012

Despite having no money for new clothes, it was good to look at all the shiny pretty things that I could have if I had a job.

Although it was kind of torturous to look at all the decadently tempting shoes, it has given me yet another incentive to get a job.

Also now have a decent amount of caffeine in my system after consuming a large mocha in Costa…lots of energy, but what should I do with it?


P.S Any coffee that costs less than £3 and needs two handles on the mug is definitely okay with me!

Pizza Made Me Sad

Yes, these are the same type of pizzas…what the hell? Chicken fail!


Living On the Edge

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

Yeah, so I like to live on the edge. In my own special way…by buying these sweets…


And putting them in a bowl…


And eating them. I had no idea what I was picking, crazy cores, crazy sours or original…my tastebuds were totalling living on the edge…

…yeah, my life is full of excitement.

Yes, it’s Party Time

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

My Grandma had a great birthday party; everything came together rather neatly. However the candles on the cake set off the fire alarm; in perfect time for the end of our chorus of “Happy Birthday”.

But our sausage hedgehog looked awesome, I got a request for another birthday cake and everyone had a great time.

Loads of leftovers – but I’m sure the boy and I can help with that one…
