This post is a round-up affair style of what has been happening in my kitchen....
Last week I moved house.
Why do I never learn? 6 times in 10 years and still not mastered packing and get super stressed to the point of swearing at people and getting far too emotional
there are still boxes everywhere...as we can't fully unpack due to housing people not installing promised furniture...
The new (shared, gulp) kitchen is tiny..and my saucepans are currently living in the communal hallway in a large old freezer bag. Super practical.
so we have to put shelves up...I am a girl and the drill is too heavy on this mornings attempt to put up a coat rack!
So, what's a girl to do?
Option a) Never move again. Unfortunately this will probably not be our home forever as is tied to my employment..
Option b) Contemplating selling all bar 10 favourite cookery books. I had more boxes of books than anything else packed. (This thought does however give me nightmares)
Option c) Win the lottery and buy a very big house. This would require buying a ticket however and luck.
Option d) Be patient and wait for my man to move in and get him to put the shelves up whilst I bake something nice to eat after!
But my favourite option of all? Eat more chocolate.
Say hello new lovely bag of Cadbury's Crispello!
Little chocolately filled and coated wafery parcels, eaten in one greedy or two sensible bites!
These were very popular too with my helpers who assisted my housemove, I am shocked I had any left but did fob them off with the crisps etc so more for me haha!
Thankyou to Anya for my samples!
After the dust had settled, the discovery of local pizza place and basic kitchen items placed in appropriate cupboards, this was the first meal I cooked and ate - a quick spinach and mushroom curry, made using some chana masala spice mix and randomly some leftover black olives! Oh and a little peshwari naan warmed in the toaster, which I found in the 'carbs' box!
And just before the house move - my guilty pleasure of shop bought garlic bread! One piece is just never enough!
Last but not least another pre-moving meal from the archives - a random assortment of fridge suprise by frying mushrooms, adding balsamic syrup and a wedge of brie, stir together and spooned onto rice cakes as I was out of bread. A great little lunch and worth repeating!
At long last too my holiday has come around, so I will abandoning you for the next fortnight but hopefully will return with lots of lovely food pictures to drool over!
