How Boring!

When was the last time I didn't blog for this many days???

I have performed two major tasks as M's temporary assistant: labelled and stamped envelopes, and collated and bound reports.

**********

Update: I feel normal today but still coughing a bit.

Hungry as a horse? a cow? ... and that's good because I have lost weight.

My aunty is looking forward to feeding me on Sunday.

On Wednesday night I ate a dinner so spicy, my body was shocked into feeling normal for a couple of hours.
When the guy at the local Thai delivery heard me he said, "Extra spicy?" (He remembers the time it took my headache away.) I said "Yes please!"
I started into it with gusto and nearly keeled over. It ended up being a good thing.

Last night I fell in love with a soup. I am a renowned soup-hater. This is from the Yorkshire Soup Company: a carrot, celeriac, coriander, cumin, and caraway compote.
Deeeelish!

What's more, I don't like carrots. But what I need right now is good nourishing stuff that's easy to eat. Incidentally, I found out today that they supply the Conran Restaurants and Fortnum and Mason. No wonder....

Yea so tonight I will order a Papa John's pizza topped with Italian sausage and jalapeno peppers. Muahahahahaaaa!

JL - indeedy, that is what I said-y. (Except in this soup!)

Steli - oooh don't even get me started on other foods! I nearly blogged about food today on 20six.

Prerona - I am feeling better, thanks!
Surprised you haven't been to a Caelidh yet, how long have you lived in Edinburgh?

I like halwa flayou:)

Olivia said...

Leilouta, I have never eaten anything with halwa before. I need to change this fact, don't I?

What is halwa flayou???

Rox said...

Am thinking it means flavour?

You guys have Papa John's Pizza over there? They're the best pizza chain around here, that's for sure.

Glad to hear you're feeling better!

Olivia said...

Rox - I am pretty sure it's not.

Mers - yes, I was so surprised to see one here that I googled them and discovered there are a few in the London area!

It was the only pizza we had at uni, but if you ever see a Cici's pizza in your southern travels, GO THERE!

Pappa johns is good then? They got one in Leatherhead, have just been loathe to order a pizza for over a tenner that isn't made in at least an Italian restaurant and is on a proper thin base! lol!

All that food looks so good! I been a proper tradional boy lately. Last week i made a cottage pie but massively peppered the beef and added milk, butter, cheshire cheese and whole grain chilli and ginger mustard to the potatoes :-p (doesnt taste as freaky as it sounds!)

Tonight is a return to Scotch Bonnets int eh chilli though :-p
