Lentil Salad with Za’atar Eggs (or, I’ve been seeing myself in leggings a lot recently)

Posted on Updated on

Recently, I’ve been working very early in the morning. Asleep-in-the-shower early. Easiest way to dress myself is in gym gear, and maybe it will even lead to some exercise beyond working out the jaw muscles when I clock off. I’m kinda like this:

This is genius. Fresh herbs year-round!!

Posted on Updated on

This is not my idea. I found it in the Eating for Two, for One facebook page’s news feed (from Garden Week 2013, in Perth), and had to share.

Take fresh herbs. Freeze them in olive oil. Keep forever and ever and always have fresh things for marinades, dressings, just roasting/frying up potatoes (I have an obsession with roasty veg as soon as it hits scarf season)

A particularly luxurious friend even suggested taking lavender/rosemary, freezing in (rosehip? coconut?) oil and dunking it in your bath. Honestly, I’d probably still enjoy the plain olive oil with parsley combo – but that’s probably taking my phillia a little far for the general population.

Nachos are a COMPETITION

And anyone who says otherwise is lying. This guy’s from Guzman, and is delicious.

If you are eating nachos with someone, you are fighting over limited resources of sour cream, beans, meat, chips, cheese, and of course guacamole. Each bite you take is a perfect mouthful. Your former friend and yourself vie for the ‘best bits’, and yet this is meant to be a typical ‘shared dish’. Unlike other foods, you can lose at nachos – quite easily, in fact. You’re the one with the bald chip and a lone blackbean – and the one with hatred in her heart towards her date.

I say that’s bogus. I say, order your own damn nachos. That’s nacho cheese.

(You never want to ‘share’ with me)
