29 days of rice – Life In Pictures Link Up – day 24 part 2

Hello again! This blog post is going to be a bit different, because I’m participating in a Life In Pictures Link Up (LIPLU) – less text, more shiny pics! I’m choosing a bunch of random photos from the week with some food thrown in here and there – your part is to guess what happened or just eyeball my life from a new pespective! Also, spot the rice! I decided to use my silly phone because it allowed for greater mobility to show off my life, so please excuse the quality.

For more info mosey over here and join in – it’s lots of fun :D Thanks Linda for the invite!

29 days of rice – jungle muffins with chocolate drizzle – day 24 part 1

Today I will sharing not one but two posts! I want to keep on schedule for my 29 days of rice, but I also want to share with you my Life In Pictures, as part of a blog hop! So, keep your eyes peeled, it should be something different :)

During the week we went over to my family for dinner and I figured I’d make some nibbles for them as dessert. I’m getting to know my audience, as it were, so I decided to make something very normal (no green cakes…YET!), but then I had to tart it up a bit on top with some streusel vibes. I figured that would get some pulled faces so I drizzled chocolate and voila – back to normal! :DprofilechocmuffinsBest of all? Delicious! In fact, my totally adorable 5-year old sister very graciously turned to me and said “you can put it on your blog”. She’s seriously just too cute! So, little sister approved – it doesn’t get better than that :) <3

29 days of rice – WIAW + sweet n sour waffle bean baskets – day 22

Yay! WIAW! :D I love these days because I get to peer into everyone else’s life, and they so happen to see into my nibbles as well. I’m sure it satisfies the deep curiosity we all share about others. My colleagues and I are in the middle of a 3-day course on advanced Word editing to better assist our researchers, so there’s a lot of brain work happening, which naturally means my munchies increase 10-fold! Man-thing and I always found ourselves much more ravenous during exams than normal, so I’m sure there’s some magical science behind it other than greediness. :pwiaw fall into good habits buttonhiddenrice Continue reading



29 days of rice – Boozy caramel chip apple blondies – day 21

Ye gods this is good. So good in fact that I had trouble stopping once I tested some to make sure I wouldn’t poison Man-thing, because that’s 100% legitimate. He tests stuff for me at restaurants or at people’s homes to make sure it’s vegan if we’re unsure (e.g. if there’s butter lurking, he’ll sniff it out). I figure the least I could do is stuff my mouth with these, but leave him some on the side. :Dforkyblondie

29 days of rice – Meatless Monday Top 5 picks, rice-cream frappé + s’more cups – day 20

It’s chilly out these days for no good reason, but it doesn’t mean I don’t like bundling up and enjoying something cool. For some reason I prefer ice-cream and chilly treats when I’m in padded boots and stockings. Luckily the nippiness strikes only in the mornings and evenings, so I can thaw out properly at some point. Point being, there’s always a good time to have these treats :D

29 days of rice – sushi cinnamon rolls – day 19

Ok, now you all know 100% I’m insane, but I couldn’t help myself. I had wanted to do a type of maki roll, just with an actual cinnamon bun, but that was going to be a fierce operation (the dough was going to be green!) so I came up with this instead. So, completely different to where I originally started, but that’s often how these projects go. Amirite?rollprofile
