Breakfast. Lunch. Snack. Dinner?

I've put my training wheels back on when it's come to cooking. I have been out of the game for a long time.. And it's not like riding a bike. You don't just get back into it, like that. It takes time. It takes effort. It takes motivation. Things I have felt, or led myself to feel, I don't have anymore.

But I do.

So for this Saturday, I have made breakfast, lunch, and a snack. Dinner? Well, nobody's perfect, right?


Nigella's never-fail pancakes from Nigella Express. I had the mix ready, so it took minutes to make. And I got to use my new pancake warmer. Yay!


I wanted soup. It's about a million degrees out, but I wanted soup. Chicken stock, tom yum paste, corn, green beans, button mushrooms and a handful of basmati rice tossed in. Mmm hmm. Good!


I was desperate, I was hungry. Corn tortilla chips, salsa and mozzarella cheese. Baked in the oven for a few minutes till the cheese is gooey. OMG, this was awesome!!!!!

For dinner, I will do something simple (Ha! Not exactly a change from the rest of the day!) and I'll just do some BBQ wings in the oven with BBQ sauce. I'll also baked some oven fries from the packet... An honest to goodness can't-be-arsed-to-do-anything type of dinner. I hope we have BBQ sauce!

You're just like me Ilana - I desperately craved a hearty stew last week, the warmest week so far this summer! ;-D
(And I also needed to try my new Le Creuset that hubby gave me ;)

Ilana - have you ever tried Nigella's ricotta hotcakes from "Forever Summer"? They are just as easy, and quite fabulous!
