Managed to be slightly productive today…more so than usual…to the point where I actually made notes on one of the pieces of work I had to do…then found a list of books to take out…now I’m on here. oops. Had a bad nights sleep so pretty tired today and getting sick of a certain few people so feeling a little stressseeeedddd…
Pete got back yesterday though (he’s been at home for a week) so it’s nice to have some company while other people are busy studying for exams etc…I was getting a bit lonely…
I made a really delicious salad last night for dinner which has been a favourite at home for a while…it’s from a recipe book by a teenager called ‘Sam Stern’ (Cooking up a Storm – it’s well worth buying, all the recipes are really easy and yummy, especially for students!)…I think it’s called ‘Salad Nicoise’ and although has a set list of ingredients I don’t usually follow it…he uses tuna steaks (which I have in the freezer because they’re really cheap in Aldi, but I’ve used chicken breast before too!) and then some crispy lettuce (iceburg), a hard-boiled egg, some boiled new potatoes, little bits of bacon, green beans, croutons, tomatoes etc etc…pretty much anything you want. I just use the fish/meat, salad, potatoes and egg because I can’t be bothered/can’t afford anything else. I think it’s supposed to be all cold as well, but it doesn’t really matter – all I know is it’s probably the healthiest thing I know how to make and is really filling and yummy. Forgot to take a photo though – sorry!
