As I am traveling back to uni today I probably won’t be able to take many photographs of my food so I thought I would cheat slightly and use Tuesday’s food to join in with the weekly WIAW party… I’m sure you won’t mind!
Thank you once more to the fabulous Jenn for creating this weekly link-up, if you’re new to the scene head on over to her blog to find out what it’s all about!
Yesterday was a much quieter day for me, if you follow me on Twitter you may have seen me having a slight moan, active days like the one I enjoyed on Monday rarely come without consequences and sure enough yesterday I was pretty exhausted. Even after over a year of dealing with these issues I still forget that I can’t be really active without their being some setbacks the following day. Oh well.
I still had a nice day because there is something much more relaxing about being home. I needed to revise lots so I spent most of the day on my bed with sheets of lecture notes and practice questions laid out around me.
After lusting over all of the lovely smoothies some of you have been enjoying I decided to whip one up for breakfast.
I blended together a banana, a handful of strawberries, milk, ice and a teaspoon of vanilla essence. Enjoyed alongside a slice of toasted brioche. Delicious.
Despite spending most of the day revising, I did take a little trip into town for lunch with my mum and my sister. It was lovely to have a good old girly natter and we ate in a lovely cafe.
I went for carrot and coriander falafel, pita bread and tzatziki which was really rather tasty. Alice had granary bread with avocado salsa which I had a nibble of and can report was also really good.
They had a Jubilee treat on the menu and I just could not resist, I always have to get anything that reminds me of childhood!
Battenburg cake :-) So cute and so almondy. Nothing beats treats like this! Alice also went for a rather delicious dessert:
Chocolate and beetroot cake with an absolutely brilliant chocolate frosting. So tasty. (Yes I stole a spoonful of this too!)
I spent the rest of the afternoon working my way through D.H. Lawrence’s short stories and a ton of notes, I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to being finished with revision.
Dinner was a lovely break from the revision, this is just the sort of meal I absolutely love in the summer months.
Baked salmon with onion and dill, crushed new potatoes and fresh asparagus. Light, fresh and delicious. I know I’ve said this several times already now but I am just so excited about the exam period being over and the summer starting for real. There is just so much to look forward to!
So there you have my food for the day, I’m off to pack and get ready to take the train back to uni for my last exam…
What’s the best thing you’ve eaten recently?
