Porridge with cranberry and blueberry compote. Ahem. Tasty!
Snacks– unpictured Clif z bar for morning break, and an apple mid-afternoon.
We were going to go to the local Starbucks, but as it was such a beautiful day Andy improvised and by the time he picked me up he had been to get us sandwiches and hot drinks. We went to the park in St Albans. (Photos from my phone so not sure how well they will come out as it is a 2 year old normal phone!).
Andy got for me a falafel and hummus wrap and a soya chai latte! He helps to feed my addiction! It was so sunny but fairly cold so I kept my coat on!
It was so lovely to be sat outside in the sunshine and just having a chat instead of tidying, marking, setting up for the afternoon etc. I love the red cups too!
Andy took a photo of the Abbey for me too- it just looked wonderful in the sunshine. I wish I could go out for lunch every day- I just felt so relaxed and unstressed all day.
When I got home I went on a run.
Sweet potato fries, rocket, hummus and a leek tofu bake thing. Recipe to follow at some point.
A gingerbread pumpkin loaf thing (based on the vegan pumpkin spice cake recipe). Yum.
Do you ever have lunch out? Do you get a lunch break? Officially we do, but in reality it is crammed with things to get done that you can’t do whilst teaching!
I am not complaining though as I do enjoy the job, and it does have some big positive points. Some people look into online universities when they want to take culinary arts classes- sometimes I have a look at these (things like nutrition always interest me) as you could train while still working but I am never sure if I would have the time.
