I guess it’s that time of week again – that time when my camera is clogged full of random photos of things and moments which I thought were worth capturing, and now need to offload onto someone before I forget what the heck they were in the first place — more affectionately known as:
What I’ve Been Lovin’ This Week!
Oh so catchy, non?
The photos can basically be divided up into the two main categories in my cray-cray life right now: animals and food. I would’ve added a third category – primary school children, as they’re featuring pretty heavily too – but I fear that posting pictures of unknown small children maaay not go down too well [the locals may come at me with pitchforks]! Sooo without further adieu, I give to you (HA, rhyme) -
Tofu, fried and then topped with a noochy-smoky-wholegrainmustardy sauce. It sounded good in theory, but oh BOY that sauce was tart and strong! I ate it – cos Joey Freya doesn’t share waste food – but it wasn’t my favourite. Last night though, I made a new nooch sauce – which had (nooch) banana, liquid smoke, maple sizzle and something else. It was…er…different. Verdict: undecided.
Oh, hello there OATS! Ay, I’m still an oat-kick (when will it end??). The first bowl was some terribly rushed affair, scarfed down before I went to work. The second bowl was had today, and holymotherofsmokeandallthingsyummy it was AMAZING! In the mix:
oats, millet flakes, 1/2 banana, hemp milk, vanilla stevia, mixed spice, topped with the remains of a chocolate pudding pot (the rest went into some muffins I made), vanilla-y peanut flour sauce, and a sprinkle of flax. I svaoured every. last. moment. WHAT a faboosh bowl.
Look! A FIG!
Fresh and fat, just how I like ‘em (TWSS?)
What what? That’s a Thai Sweetcorn flavoured Veatable bar! I’m yet to see them in shops (that came in a review parcel) but if I – or you – do, BUY THEM. They are incredibly delicious.
A mystery smoothie – sadly, the picture looks like a pile of junk, but the actual smoothie was made from: 1/2 can chickpeas, a medium frozen banana, cinnamon, vanilla, a tiny weeno size bit of salt (pink crystal, no less) and a hefty teaspoon of nooch. It SOUNDS weird, but was actually like, ‘woah’ worthy. Hooray.
Coffee – not just any coffee, but [cold] coffee with the addition of mixed spice <— very good idea indeedee.
Mk, now: the animal category! Starting wiiiiiiiith….
A certain Mr Kovac Cat!
Ever tried to take a picture with a hefty old camera, of a cat who is sitting on your lap? Don’t bother, it’s really difficult. Trust me.
OH< and talking of cats, you’re going to meet Rabbit next week. I shall say no more.
Now, how about some horse photos? Yes, that sounds nice. After all, I hardly ever post pictures of Chika and Tig do I..? Ahem.
Ok, that was a field.
And so was that.
THAT’S a horse!
(And that’s another Chika)
(OH, and Tig again.)
Those were all taken this morning before my run Doesn’t everything look so innocent and peaceful? It’s a shame that I appeared to run straight through CrapsVille and into Exhaustion Road, with a detour down Dead Legs Valley….and an equal shame that Chika decided to be 100% DIV today on our hack – I thought it’d be a nice break from schooling, but we ended up spending the entire hack in shoulder in. Every time we went in a straight line, there just HAPPENED to be an invisible (and therefore, terrifying) bird. Oh, and let’s not forget the TRACTOR in the distance (I know, holycrap right?), or…wait for it…the evil clump of G R A S S on the side of the path. Seriously, I don’t know how we managed to finish that hack alive….
