I love weekends, famously. Often we joke that having no day job would be vastly superior because we could do what we want, all of the time, but right now I am enjoying the balance I have in life of working hard in the week, and enjoying what weekend time I have to live my life. I think the balance is important. If I won lottery tomorrow and quit my job I would be bored, all of the time. I wouldn't love weekends anymore because I wouldn't have them. Right?
This weekend I went on an epic walk around Alexandra Park with Suzi and shot a roll of 35mm. I finally got boyfriend to come down to the garden centre to help me choose herbs for our up until now empty window box, baked soda bread and made an incredible lentil spread. You can find the recipe for the spread over here at A Merry Mishap. I adapted it slightly, using walnuts instead of almonds (because I had them in!) and adding lemon juice at the end. Also please note that 1 cup of cooked lentils is NOT the same as 1 cup of lentils, cooked - we're going to be eating this until the cows come home, I now have several jars of the stuff. Its especially good on the aformentioned soda bread with tomatoes tossed in olive oil and parmesan cheese with some watercress and lots of salt & pepper.
