kate5kiwis: sweet escape


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

sweet escape

we've sent Bulldog off on a Head Trip today.
and because i am so sick of tins of tuna for lunch, and i need to fill up on something bikini-ish *so that* i don't hog into the kiddos' hot chippies on the beach in half an hour, i have just whipped up the Sexiest *Pumpkin Pie* in The Sunny Bay:

gently fry 2 onions.
in another pot, simmer cubes of pumpkin for 5 mins.
chop up fresh parsley.
gently toss all together in onion pan, and pour over four eggs (beaten with a splash of milk) and mr salt and mrs pepper
think about adding feta and fresh basil
next time

cook on low heat until egg is firmly set around the edges.
transfer whole pan into the oven and fan grill for 5 mins until the egg is cooked.
eat a quarter of the pie.
still feel hungry and go back for seconds.
feel ridiculously full and snap this shot:
grab bikini and go off on own sweet beach escape with the kiddos,
all listening to Gwen on *loud*...

Hope you both had fun on your adventures. That pumpkin pie looks delicious! I'll have to try it. Are you still following that plan (the book you linked to a while ago)? I can't remember the name.

am just trying to recall what i had today:
brekkie: smoothie (banana, OJ, spirulina)
half avocado on one slice whole wheat toast. espresso. espresso.
lots of water during the morning.

late morning/lunch: handful natural almonds. little slice leftover pumpkin pie. the leftover oxidised piece of M6's apple that he left "lion around" lol.
tin baked beans and grated cheese. espresso.
lots more water during the afternoon.

late afternoon: carrot, hard boiled egg.

haven't decided what i'm gonna mangez for dinner, i'm about to make poh-tay-toh wedges and chilli beans and cheese and sour cream for tout le monde and R14 ate the last tin of tuna for lunch...
