kate5kiwis: what is it with my Nigella muse at the weekends?


“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

what is it with my Nigella muse at the weekends?

so, it's saturday, and it's raining, and i think danny has brought The Big Smoke weather with him because i swear it's been sunny here for *weeks*.

i might need to take my temperature though cos since getting back from the gym four hours ago, i have been swanning around the kitchen making five six seven thousand stuffs:

1. a gigantic pot of veggie soup with alphabet letters in it for dinner tonight

2. a nearly-as-gigantic pot of roasted pumpkin soup for dinner tomorrow

3. eleventy billion wholemeal buns which are actually still rising in the oven and i even remembered to put an egg in the dough otherwise they don't rise so well

4. roasted garlic and lemon hummus from dried chick peas which i pressure cooked and which will be awesome to nosh on instead of those evil white carbs that have been stodging up my gym scales

5. two poached eggies on burgen bread cos it's my turn to keep Bulldog alive while he is in essay-writing mode

6. twelve delish boysenberry muffins for whenever the kids find them

7. two little espressos. don't forget the espressos.

and it's all so weird, cos it's not like there is anything to procrastinate. and here i am *writing* about it. ah yes, i spy a BS bloggeur award. i think i shall go off and find my quilt. i'm sure the whole world will be ecstatic to know that i have made friends with it again - probably because i can sniff the finish line. it's started to veer away from the rules though - i am going to put some words on it. except i have this gigantic headache which is probably caused by the two thirty morning last night which wasn't even for partying reasons.

You've out Nigella's Nigella. The veggie soup sounds wonderful. I obviously crave a detox cos my mouth is watering at the thought of it.
