That was my oh-so-clever solution to the problem of spotting a mouse and not having enough mouseproof containers. I thought it was a good idea.
And I still do, but I messed up a bit yesterday…
I’d taken a Nakd bar to work on Thursday and forgotten to eat it. So when I got back that night, and didn’t want to leave it in my bag just in case, I thought putting it in the oven would keep it safe. Only I put it in the top oven.
And then forgot and put some butternut in to roast last night… 😦
In case you were even tempted to try it, roasted Nakd bar a la plastic is not a good idea. Trust me.
My house stank! I think it was karma, for trying out a silly April Fool’s joke on here yesterday 🙂
But today started better, with pancakes:
This is what I was trying to make the other day, only this time, the egg white/mashed banana/oats combo worked.
It works better with peanut butter on top afterwards. Fact.
I then tried to do some amateur plumbing. My bathroom sink’s blocked itself and no amount of plunger action was working, so I unscrewed the pipes underneath, cleaned them out, put it all back together, felt very proud of myself, ran the tap – and it was still blocked.
Time to put my hand in my pocket and get a real plumber out methinks…
I then cycled to the village to get my hair cut. I rang on an impulse because I hadn’t had it done since October and it was really starting to get straggly. My hair’s so fine (and frizzy – grrr!) that it really needs doing more often.
I meant to take the obligatory before and after pics but the light was too rubbish by this evening, so this is the before:
Strrrragggglllle! (And check out my polka-dot shower cap – I’m such a style icon.)
And as for after, just imagine that but shorter and straight 🙂
I went to the yard to work Dave, took longer than I’d planned and rushed home, because I was supposed to be going out but my friend rang because her husband had been called into work (he does event planning in London) and she didn’t have a babysitter 😦
So I thought I’d have a look through Vegonomicon and make something from there for dinner – but couldn’t decide which. In the end, inspired by the aubergine rollatini, I took some thin slices of aubergine, dipped them in egg white and peanut flour, “breaded” them in a mixture of oat bran, garlic and nutritional yeast and sauted, then put them on top of a spinach/pesto mix and baked:
Nice but I think I’ll actually make the recipe next time!
It also didn’t help that I managed to spill nutritional yeast all over the hob.
So not the best of days! But it was the warmest and sunniest it’s been yet so all is good.
Hope everyone else has had a sunny Saturday 🙂
