Heyyyy! Long time no post! Sorry, but on the bright side I am DONE! Finished! Free! Yay! It’s officially summer – actually it’s still spring but you get my drift! I’ve had three exams over the last four days you might kind of see why I’ve been MIA! I have been photographing though I have heaps of photos to come!
Thinks there is four days worth so here is the first day:
Breakfast: cornflakes, yoghurt, blueberries and coffee!
Tuna salad, yoghurt and apple!
Vegetable frittata – the tofu one! Yum!
And dessert plain greek yoghurt, boysenberry and corny! Mhmm!
Bread with marmite, an in action coffee shot and a nana!
A sort of fried rice: brown rice, beans, peas, pumpkin and chicken! Amazing~
Mhmm berry flakes with milk and yoghurt!
Okay we’re onto Day Three:
More marmite and bread with another nana and coffee! the shape in the coffee did resemble a heart but it dissipated ;(
Hummus and apple! Ooh and some not picture yoghy!
This was a yummy dinner too! Spaghetti, carrot, feta and parmesan and mixed veges and a few pine nuts
And now we are onto Today!
Pretty sure I turned out having this breakfast on all my exams days! Blueberries = brain food!
Normal salad sandwich, carrot, sweet chili sauce yoghurt combo! Muy bien!
Fish (Gurnard), Pumpkin, Broccoli penne with mushroom and carrot sauce!
And the dessert! I actually made these cookies yesterday as a break in study! Turned out I did a lot of baking whilst procrastinating! I think it was because it felt like at least I was doing something a little worthwhile – well more so than watching tv shows on my laptop or surfing the net!
Anyway here are my pretty pretty cookies:
I have to admit! I totally made these cookies for the fun of the shape and decorating them! They were quite a simple roll outable sugar cookie recipe (You know, butter sugar egg baking powder a bit of salt and flour, oh and I added lemon essence instead of vanilla as we had run out but turned out yummy!)
The icing was the fun part! Made a very liquid sort (on purpose) because I’ve only ever made buttercream or fondant before and I wanted to try to make proper cookie icing! The recipe I had called for corn syrup which even if I could buy in New Zealand I probably would avoid so I used cream of tartar instead as found advise that this would be a good substitute! Think I may have added to much milk but with some help from the freezer and then the fridge they turned out great! Oh and I added a sprinkling of silver edible glitter at the end 🙂
This one I actually had last night for dessert
And this was tonights one! And I think the sentiment in the middle of it is a pretty good way to finish off this post! Nite all! Your guys all rock!
