So, I can’t function enough to write at the mo, so this is how I’m feeling, in internet memes.

This morning I fried up cabbage and carrots (boyfs housemate ate ALL OF MY PAD THAI) and ate it. in a bowl. with my tears, macbook, and stupid lectures playing.

Send me strength.

Look at this! Egg in the Middle tried the Spinach, Broccoli, Olive and Parmesan Tarte – and look how beautiful it is! They did a better job with the fancy fluted edges, and I feel so chuffed that something I wrote has materialized in someone elses kitchen! wowee!

And of course I have a cat

This is the monster herself. She’s cross eyed and missing teeth, but I love her to bits. Cooking blogs and cats seem to go together, and today her food was double the price because they had sold out of her brand. I fear the anger I felt was a preview to my catladydom future – NO FUN.

(are we friends yet? you could totally tweet my shame here)

Things that were on sale, that I went crazy for, though:
– AVOCADOES WERE $2.49/6!
Tangerines are still $1.99/kilo!
– Potatoes were $2.49/4kgs!

I don’t understand the seasons these are supposed to represent. Tangerines and potatoes are cold-weather produce, but avocadoes? Just a miracle. Superbarn in the Canberra Centre (where these sales are on) also have cherries out – can’t wait for them to go on sale! But, best of all:

these bad boys were $0.79! Each! How fancy.

Regrowth

Regrowth

I don’t know why this appeals to me so much, or why it took so long to realise that veggies I buy regrow – but, to me, this was a game changer.

Stick roots in water. That shit regenerates, y’all.

Left to right, english spinach, some yummo dark leaf lettuce, and celery (but it also works with spring onions/shallots and leeks!). Stick on a sunny windowsill and eventually plant when you feel it has regained some of its vibrancy. If you leave it in a cup on your boyfriend’s kitchen windowsill it will get slimy and it will get chucked out by his housemates, so make sure you change the water before it stinks.

Cut, eat, repeat.
