Day 12 of #wpad.
Quick post tonight and a bit of a cheat. I often feel I’m quite lucky that I can legitimately count a lot of my hobbies as research. Playing Bioshock Infinite, reading a biography of Raymond Chandler and generally sitting around making up stories – all stuff I enjoy, all stuff which I hope will pay off.
But this can backfire and this sort of stuff can even feel a little like homework (For example, today in the office, I felt I’d let my career down by having not seen a particular episode of Black Mirror. Hey, I’m an insomniac – I take my sleep whenever I can get it )
But I don’t want to be a chef. That means that heating up food is how I chill (though, just to be clear, chilling food doesn’t make hot!) You can’t control many things in life, but making the time to take some ingredients (vegan ones, naturally) then doing knife tricks and variations of flamethrowery at them becomes a form of happy Zen to satiate my inner control freak.
Above are some pics of some of my favourite meals I’ve made this year. Bit of a cheat as they’re just snaps that were already on my phone. Also a bit of a cheat as Heather already had a delicious meal on the go when I got home tonight.
Luckily I’ve learned to chill out by eating food as well. I recommend it!
