Live below the Line - Day 5 (Final!)
It’s OVER!!!! I’m done! As I am typing this I am having a bottle of Kopparberg. As I had my first drink I actually let out a very loud Ahhhh! I must be crazy. I don’t even drink that often. (once a week or less yeah?) Then again I had a really bad day. Woke up at 12.30pm (really bad) so ended up being at work at 3pm. =/ Chocolate bourbons: 3pcs after midnight snack. 9p (I could...
Live below the Line - Day 4
Unbelievably tired last night, only to wake up at 10,30am instead of the usual 7-8am or earlier. So in some way I might have cheated a bit as there are now lesser awake hours.

Giant mug of tea. 30p ...

I am so going to make this Mac’n’Cheese
A fellow student and colleague went on a holiday to South Africa and decided to host a Cape-to-Cairo Party when they got back. I was asked to do a dessert in the North African region so that it would round up the theme. I’m not familiar with North African countries but I was Baklava seemed to be common in these areas. I’ve no idea which country has the first Baklava but this recipe...
