Did someone say it’s award time? Well, the lovely Kaleena sure did! So, thanks to her, you are hereby presented with a list of 7 random things about me.
#1 As much as I love espresso, and in spite of having an espresso machine, I mostly drink instant coffee. It’s pure laziness, you see. Instant coffee requires the least amount of clean up, and I like to take the path of least resistance. Also, the instant coffee I buy comes in all kinds of nice flavours, like toffee, cinnamon & hazelnut, mint or chocolate & orange, and I’m a sucker for those.
#2 I’m really useless when it comes to make up, and haven’t worn any for at least five years. Every now and then I try some mascara, but most of the time I forget about it.
#3 My latest obsession is chicken salad for dinner. I don’t normally like chicken (because it tastes like paper) or leaves (because they taste like leaves, duh…), but finally found a combination that’s not completely yucky.
#4 I get annoyed when a restaurant describes their food as home made. Like, fucking hell, if I want to eat home made food, I just stay at home and cook. When I got to a restaurant, I expect something better. Something I couldn’t just whip up in my own kitchen.
#5 I have these recurring nightmares lately in which I dream that I’m sleeping and can’t wake up. They are quite specific. Like, if I’m napping in the living room, my dream takes place there, and if I’m in the bedroom, the dream sleeping is happening there. Spooky.
#6 I have size 3 feet. If you are not familiar with UK sizes, it’s very small. Like, tiny.
#7 I’m watching Homecoming at the moment and have a tiny crush on Stephan James, the dude who plays Walter Cruz.
Well, that’s it, guys!
If you want to try my chicken salad, here’s how you make it.
♥Half an avocado. Or a whole. Whatever.
A handful of tiny tomatoes. Or a lot. I can’t eat more than a few, or my stomach feels like it’s caught on fire.
♥A tiny cup of sweetcorn. (By tiny I mean the cup I use for double espresso. It’s a bit big for it, so… Just put some sweetcorn.)
♥Bacon. Two slices. Without the fatty part.
♥Spinach. Squeeze a bit of lemon juice on this too.
♥Random mixed leaves. Enough to cover your plate and make it look like you actually tried making a salad. Splash some olive oil on them.
♥Feta cheese. Now I wouldn’t suggest putting a shitload, but you are an adult, you can decide for yourself.
♥A few pieces of fresh tarragon
♥A teaspoon(ish) grainy mustard
♥A dash of olive oil
♥A squeeze of lemon
♥A tablespoon of honey
