As you can imagine, at present life isn’t the most interesting. The highlight of my day is normally packing up my work after a morning at the library and heading to the gym for a change of scenery, before heading back to the library for an afternoon session. My housemates and I wanted to give ourselves a night off every week to socialise with each other and so decided to take it in turns to cook. We’re referring to it as ‘Come dine with me’ but realistically this is a deceiving term as we aren’t scoring each other, just demolishing the food. Dinner is also followed by us watching the latest episode of Marcella, the extremely tense ITV drama. The last two weeks I have enjoyed having a night off cooking, instead being summoned to the dinner table without having to lift a finger. This week however, it is my turn to slave away in the kitchen.
Whilst the menu isn’t finalised I have a few ideas and think I will be making a coconut prawn curry. I haven’t actually tried this recipe out but I have been meaning to for a while so hopefully it goes to plan! It’s taken from Amelia Freer’s ‘Eat. Nourish. Glow.’ book, which I have been dipping into lately. There’s some really great healthy recipes in the book that are easy to make and don’t break the student budget! I’m trying to make time to cook from scratch as much as possible during exams, as it’s so easy to slip into the habit of making quick, unhealthy meals.
Good luck to all of you revising,
