Woohooo! Yesterday I sat the last exam of my Graduate Certificate in Nutritional Science, and although the exam was completely beastly, I'm feeling ok about getting a pass. It was a looong exam though (eight mini-essays) and by the time I navigated the after-work traffic it was 7pm and I was ready to eat the world.
Emergency: Need something quick and painless for dinner
To the rescue: Oh She Glows Avocado Pasta.
Of course, mine is the un-veganised version with rice spirals, shrimps, wakame and broccoli. Actually, I just made the avocado sauce and mixed it into random, healthy ingredients (all quickly stirfried).
Never mind that, just think about the sauce. It's amazing. This stuff will fix your life.
It is creamy, takes 5 minutes to make, is full of healthy fats and vitamins and packs the flavour punch.
Lemon juice + garlic + avocado = delicious.
That was yesterday. Today, my day started with delivery of a large box from the Book Depository.
A present from Sistasana! I had to mentally apologise for thinking she had just forgotten my birthday.
Has anyone read the Fifty Shades trilogy? Or even Fifty Shades of Grey? I admit, I was going to skip it, having heard it referred to as 'Fifty Shades of Lame', but if Sistasana thinks it's good enough to actually buy a physical copy (we are e-bookers around here), then I believe it should be worth a read. If it's lame, it's probably the sort of brain-junk literature that I will thoroughly enjoy. I'm no book snob.
While I was getting over the shock of mail from my sister, the courier knocked on the door and delivered something equally awesome:
Artwork from my favourite girl. :D More pics for the wall.
My office had might as well be named 'Proud Aunty Room, Inc.'
Breakfast was a vegan banana and chia pancake fail.
I really should investigate vegan pancake recipes. I always try to wing it and end up with tasty mush instead.
I think the main problem is lack of a non-stick frypan.
Any attempt to turn it just results in pancake massacre.
This was gooey and yummy. I soaked it in coconut milk and it hit the spot.
Happy Friday to you!
