Jumping through hoops

Feminists: look away now!

One symptom (or sign?) of looming exams that I suffer from is that I suddenly want to get back into the kitchen. During long revision sessions I procrastinate by thinking of new utensils I’d like to go and buy, recipes I’d like to try and ignoring the ‘instinct’ that’s telling me to abandon any career plans and go somewhere warm and comforting. Or perhaps being in biomedicine is the best thing for me, after all, “Let food be your medicine…”

So… on my list of the ‘post-exam kitchen retreat’ includes:

* buying beautiful glass containers for me to store whole grain items

* bulk cooking several recipes from ‘Indian cooking made easy’

* explore my family history and delve further into Sicilian cooking. I don’t know what my dad’s favourite dish was, the anniversary of his death is coming up so now will be a good time to start.

Sigh. It seems like the light at the end of a tunnel is a pin-prick. Not that I want it to go too quickly. I should go and do some surgical revision.

    Made these the other day. They were really good, and cos they are wheat & sugar-free they are low GI and even diabetic-friendly.

    I didn’t tell anyone about the black eyed peas in them, in case it put them off!
