friday's favorites and future talk

the day started off weirdly, in that i decided i'd try and make some chocolate oats, and add a little peanut butter on top, but it tasted really bad. how do you make your chocolate oats? and also i've been wondering, OIAJ is made how? - is there a recipe or ratio?

then i started doing some crazy loads of cooking. when i'm bored, and i've decided i've spent way too much time of the computer, i turn some music on and start cooking my little socks off. this time, i made:

♥ baked aubergine and butternut squash - ready for a veggie bake

♥ thursday's potato salad, with sugar snaps, cucumber, tomatoes and houmous

♥ a tiny batch of maple cinnamon pecans, so worth it, but gone in about one minute flat

♥ my own granola, now that's another thing to cross off my 2010 recipes list! a mix of popped amaranth, chopped pecans, chopped almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, linseeds, sultanas, honey, rapeseed oil, agave nectar, flaked oats, cinnamon. in the oven for about 20-30 minutes, turning every 5-10mins.

♥ veggie bake with goats cheese, and green beans

♥ fresh mango for dessert, this is definitely ranking high on my list of favorite fruit

♥ and then something a little naughty for dessert, peanut butter cookies, YUM!

it was a tasty day. oh yes. i'm getting a little tired of looking after the dogs, it's a mixture of the early wakeup call and the horrendous smell of the house that's kinda putting me off having a dog for quite a few years.

i've been thinking so much about my future lately. i'm really not sure where it's going to lead, which is exciting but scary too! most of my life i've not really put a lot of thought into what i would choose to do, i assumed a lot and didn't think deeply for myself. now i'm in a position where i'm trying to figure out what i want from life, where i want to live, what i want to do. sometimes life can feel super restrained, and at other times, it seems like there are too many options. know what i mean? i think the bad english weather is getting me down a's time for some sun!
