WIAW: Croissants, Chaat, Chapattis and Cleaning

January 8, 2014

It’s been quite a while since I took part in What I Ate Wednesday, so last weekend I decided it was as good a time as any to jump back in. Here are my meals and snacks from Saturday, which was a pretty relaxing day, mostly spent trying to avoid getting caught in the rain, and catching up with housework. That’s how super cool my weekends are at the moment!

I slept in until around 9.30am, which was lovely – the longest lie in I’ve had in months (years?) and it kind of set the tone for the rest of the weekend. I lounged around for a while before finally getting out of bed and heading downstairs for coffee and a chocolate croissant. These are so good – I bought a bag of them in Barcelona and they are really delicious.

Oh HI sexy chocolately vegan croissant. Hello there. And my mug has cats on!

Trout and I sat together in the lounge listening to music while we had breakfast. It was a really lovely start to the day, spending time together and listening to different bands. After breakfast Trout went to the gym and I darted around the flat, changing the bed, cleaning Ras’ poo parlour, working my way through two loads of laundry, the washing up, taking the Christmas decorations down and recycling our Christmas cards. After that it was time for a shower and some writing on the blog.

Trout decided to rustle up some French onion soup for lunch, which we had with some warm ciabatta. It was perfect for a rainy day spent indoors together.

The afternoon mainly involved another load of laundry, some reading, a catch up with my motherbear, and a trip into town for dinner supplies. For dinner we had daal with chaat and chapattis. It was so good! I could eat Indian food every day for the rest of my life and not get bored.

So those were my meals from Saturday! Anything catch your eye?

This week is creeping along quite nicely. It’s been pretty busy at work, I had DanceFit on Monday, and last night I caught up with a few things that I’ve been meaning to do for a while on the blog, so it was nice to finally get around to doing that. I’ve added social media buttons to the right hand bar – there’s nothing quite like a bit of late night HTML to frazzle my brain! I’ve kind of missed it though, so it was fun to mess around with it again. I finally got an iPhone! Which means I’m finally on Instagram! Do give me a follow – at the moment I pretty much only have pictures of Rasputin, but give me some time and there will be photos of cake and Rasputin.

    Warm carbs (croissants, breads, and anything like that) are the death of me! Yum!
