Almost half way through the year.

Hello Everyone, I hope your day has been well.

It’s crazy to think that we are almost half way through the year. It seems like it has gone quick but at the same time a lot has happened and we have all been through so much especially with the virus and lockdown restrictions. It seems so normal talking about it now, but this time last year everything was so uncertain and there was a lot of anxiety about the situation. Hopefully we can look forward to a positive new normal.

The virus has been quite a big distraction this year. There is always a news story on the TV and of recent, the new strain. I feel like there is still a lot of things that I would like to achieve this year so I’ve definitely got to stay focused on my goals. It sometimes seems difficult to achieve them but no matter what as long as I keep trying on what I want, it should work out. Setting goals is always fun and easy but ticking them off is the harder part.

We are finally in the Spring season which is so beautiful, waking up early, hearing the birds chirp in the morning, the bright skies and longer days are so appreciated I feel like it goes so well with my mood and I’ve got to make the most of it. However, this week has been so so rainy, literally everyday I’ve needed my rain coat and umbrella because rain has been forecast and its rained every day without fail.

Last week, I had my first meal out since October, can you imagine? Over 6 months since I was at a restaurant. It was only outside dining at the time and although it was a little rainy, we were under shelter and it wasn’t too cold. I had the Naked Katsu, which was brown rice, grated carrot, pickled raddish, lettuce and edamame beans, all very tasty. Along with a cloudy lemonade.

It’s actually been a little while since I have baked/cooked something as I’ve been occupied with other things but I can’t wait to start planning new recipes and creating new things in the kitchen.

Hope you all have a great week!

Thank You Dinner

I had never actually been to a fine dining restaurant and whenever I do eat out I rarely take pictures of the food so it was a lovely change to be invited by my university for a thank you meal for helping out at the skills show. I was very surprised by how professional the environment was and never expected to have 3 different courses with all the cutlery and wine glasses, it was so cool and we were even treated to champagne on arrival.

Oh my goodness! I know how rare this may look to some people but it was cooked properly and tasted so delicious and full of flavour especially with the jus.

I used to think that small meals would never fill me up but after eating the 3 courses I was so stuffed. I was also very grateful to be apart of the event because I really did enjoy myself and it was great to be appreciated by others. There were lots of ingredients on each dish which all complemented each other so well.
