A Good Food Day

Yesterday was a good day for food and drink. And not so bad work-wise either, I got most of my essay done :)

Let's start with lunch. One of the things about being a student, particularly a relatively broke student, is that I have to think of things to eat for every meal every day. For lunch I like salady or soupy things, not heavy meals, and I get bored of things to have with my salads, especially as I won't buy pork-y things, and I don't really like meat for lunch.

Yesterday, whilst thinking about what to have for lunch (and writing an essay) I saw a lot about Mexican food on blogs. Inspired my one my all-time favourite restaurants, Wahaca, I decided to make feta and broad bean quaesadillas. I had sweet-corn so thought I'd make some salsa too.

I had to go to Tescos, as I had no salad, so I bought feta, chilli and corriander and avocado, along with the other things I needed.

I made a fresh salsa using red onion, garlic, chilli, corriander, tomatoes and sweetcorn. It was quite hot! I also made some guacamole, although only a little, because I don't like to use more than a half an avocado for a single meal for me.

It was a nice lunch, a little different which is always good!I also had some salad on the side, as I do like to have lots of veg.


  1. ::sigh:: I feel your pain about having to plan every meal, every day on little to no money. I usually have the same thing for breakfast everyday and then try to change up my lunches each week. These week I'm making avocado-cream cheese and having it on a sandwich with roasted butternut squash. Dinners usually end up with me cooking 2 big meals and eating leftovers the rest of the week. Cooking for one is hard!

  2. I'm always cooking things in larger quantities to eat in more than one meal. Sometimes eating the saem thing 2 or 3 times in a row is better than trying to think of variation!
