Wednesday

1. I’ve finally finished off two big reports that have resulted in a few early mornings and late nights over the past week. It’s so good to be back onto a more regular work schedule.

2. Thanks to #1 I was actually able to take a proper lunch break today (where you move away from your computer and do something other than work for half an hour - you know the ones?) and went and bought myself a coffee. All of the major coffee chains have latte specials for the festive season and they’re just soooo good. I love AMT’s gingerbread and Starbucks’ praline but today I went for the creme brulee from Costa. It went down pretty well as I read the last few pages of We Need to Talk About Kevin. Well worth a read if you’re looking to buy a new book for the holidays.

             

Dinner: Mediteranean Vegetable Pie. This recipe came from one of my favourite famous foodies: Andy Bates. You can find the recipe here. It’s in no way a quick or easy dinner meal so only make this if you’re in the mood to spend some time in the kitchen. However, it is something you can make the night before, or during the day, as you can reheat it again later. It is worth the time it takes to make though - it’s absolutely delicious. If you’ve got friends or family coming over for a weekend lunch this is a perfect dish to make and serve with salad and warm, crusty bread.

After we demolished huge slices of the pie we treated ourselves to a dessert of homemade mint Oreo icecream. I used my basic homemade icecream recipe, which you can find here, but switched the vanilla essence for mint and crumbled in a whole packet of Oreos at the end (optional: add a few drops of green food colouring). Yum!
