Sad mood… 5. January 2017

 Pesto risotto with some avocado

 Chamomile tea and two cherry pastries

 Delicious chicken and peanut stew with rice and some salad. I used this recipe, just omitted the sweet potato as I am not overly fond of the taste.

 Apple chocolate brownies with some leftover tahini I had laying around. Also had another cup of coffee.

I had an awful nightmare, so I woke up crying in the morning and the terrible feeling from the nightmare stayed with me for the entire day.  I was kind of sad and nervous all day. It’s funny how sometimes when I see a nightmare it disappears as soon as I wake up and realise that it was only a dream, but sometimes something from the dream lingers with you, making you feel upset. Perhaps it has something to do with the subject matter.

Neruneru… 4. January 2017

 Leftover seafood pizza and ramen noodle and mushroom soup made with tom yum paste

 Nakayoshi Neruneru DIY candy. It was fun mixing this thing together. The green grape candy was really sour. The pink fluff was strawberry flavoured. The toppings were popping candy and soda flavoured pellets. I can’t say I was crazy about the taste, but it sure was a fun experience xD

I made a video of the candy making process. I liked a lot how the candy goo puffed up into its fluffy form :p I put the music over the video to muffle out my camera noisily changing the focus point and I also need to figure out an angle for the future where my hands wouldn’t be in the way all of the time xD But maybe this is a bit interesting to watch anyway?

 A persimmon and some kiwifruit

 Basil pesto risotto

 Huge cheese stuffed meatballs and some salad

I got really fed up in the grocery store, because most vegetables were prepackaged into plastic. Originally the risotto was supposed to be served with roasted zucchini, but since it was covered in plastic in one of the stores (I will not buy zucchini if I can’t nick a taste to make sure it isn’t bitter) and was half rotting in the other store I went to, I got angry and bought the meatballs instead… which were also in a plastic package, but at that point I didn’t really care anymore. Who the hell packages a zucchini anyway? Well, apparently a company called I ♥ Eco, which is simply ironic.

I made dinner and then we watched an episode of “Sweetness & Lightning,” which continues to be adorable, and “Yuri on Ice,” which is quite entertaining, with my boyfriend.

Went a bit crazy with the peanut butter… 24. May 2016

 Wild garlic pesto and chicken risotto

 A sandwich with sausage and cucumber

 Banana with peanut butter

 A sandwich with peanut butter and strawberry jam

 Another banana with peanut butter. I went a bit crazy and finished off about half of the peanut butter jar… it was just so damn good that I couldn’t stop eating it. It’s a problem for me sometimes that I can’t stop eating something even if I’m already full.
But yeah, I was super excited to find this peanut butter at Marks & Spencer, because I’ve only ever found regular peanut butter on sale, but this one was with maple and pecan bits and wow, it was super delicious! I can’t wait to buy it again. Perhaps next time I’ll manage to restrain myself from eating too much at a time xD

 Buckwheat stew with potatoes and cabbage topped with some sour cream
