I'm aliiiiive
Depression is a cruel mistress so I've spent a lot of time eating tinned and microwaved meals, but I'm back and at it again.

I realise kidney isn't for everyone, but what you need to know is you're wrong and it's delicious.

Ahaha hello I am still alive. :)

No pictures about this one as I only realised "omg I should post this" as I was eating.

So let's make this quick and dirty.

Whole grain pasta
wild asparagus (could also be spinach)
(light) cream cheese
your choice of protein. I went with the tiniest steak you've ever seen, but this could be chicken, shrimp, tofu...

Two pans
One pot.

To do:
Fill pot with water and season (olive oil and salt). Put on stove to boil. When boiling, add pasta, set timer for 1-2 minutes less than al dente.
Chop mushrooms.
Heat up pan with about two tablespoons of olive oil. Chuck in asparagus, then mushrooms (or mushrooms, then spinach). Season with salt and pepper.
In second pan, deal with your protein. Undercook it slightly.
When pasta is done, drain but reserve some of the water.
Add pasta to vegetables.
Make sure protein is bitesize (I sliced my steak afterward, but chicken or tofu could be done beforehand) and add to pan.
Add a heaped tablespoon of cream cheese (I used light philadelphia with fine herbs and garlic) and the half a cup of reserved water. Let it cook down till desired creaminess.

This took me all of twenty minutes to shove together when I realised I'd forgotten to eat, so it's definitely easy-peasy!

I don't post a lot, we all know it. I think half my posts are dedicated to mentioning that I don't post a lot.
So I'll change that.

Basically what's going to happen is I'm going to try write 100 posts about a certain topic I love. They won't all be the same, there will be pictures and things and while I know I won't post every day, it should at least make me post more regularly and, hopefully, more interestingly.

The topic?

I love cooking, I love eating, I love thinking about and contemplating food. I like making shopping lists and I love doing groceries (if there just weren't as many other people in the store at the same time).
So it'll be all about me cooking, shopping, telling you all about the tasty thing I had/saw/smelled, etc. I have all the opinions.

You are, of course, all welcome to comment, reply, tell me off or share your own views and stories. I'd actually be super happy if you did, but don't see this in any way as an obligation.

Food is love.

I have been considering this for a while and I think I'll go through with it.

{Take the 100 Things challenge!}

More info and details when I'm not about to go to bed. :)
