WIAW! It seems I overworked the previous month and so I have to work less to stay on target for my allocated hours – ergo Wednesdays are half-free! 😀 It’s always demoralizing having to work on a Wednesday when I want to rock out and create something uber shiny, so this is a welcome consequence of not being able to do maths and overworking myself in October. What better way to celebrate than with company and pastry?
Breakfast: zucchini-pumpkin-papaya smoothie with 1/3 cup soaked buckwheat + 1 TBSP flax seed powder (there is no way to make this look as appetizing as it was at 05h00 in the morning)
We had my uncle over for dinner last night to show him the new poz (whilst my aunt is gallivanting with her daughter in another city), so I had an epic excuse to make a delicious and simple polenta dish. After a long day at work the last thing I want to do is stress about not getting food right, and you can’t go too wrong with polenta, nay?
Dessert: I ate some homemade custard whilst Man-thing and my uncle had some apple-date-carob nib strudel as well (based on the same principal as this last one) – I was pretty stuffed after the big dinner, so I decided to hold back on the pastry. Om nom! Either way, I naturally did a lot of tasting beforehand…of the carob nibs, the apples…baking is a tough job, obviously :p Post-dinner: Berry tea and some cucumber sticks to have on hand just in case of a snack attack, followed by an unexpected attack of cravings for PB.
Blergh! I woke up SO full today, since I’m so used to just packing in tons of soup and steamed veggies for dinner instead of stuffing polenta and what not, but it was nice to have company and to hear about life from my uncle’s perspective, since I chat to my aunt almost every day. My uncle is kind of challenged in the cooking department, so hopefully he enjoyed being fed as well.
