There’s not a lot of weeks left in the year and it’s kind of freaking me out a little. I’m a goal setter but my time management of said goals this year has been poor. i’m meant to have done so many more things but where does the time go?! That’s right… thinking about food.
We’ve had such lovely weather in Melbourne lately and I’m loving it, excluding today, today is meh. My heart still belongs to pasta but salads and lighter dinners are finally getting a bit of a look in, lucky them. Lucky for my thighs too;)
This week the spotlight is firmly on Spring with a nod to Halloween for anyone that’s celebrating that delightful evening next week. What’s the best costume you’ve ever warn for a costume party? I once made myself a Poison Ivy costume and it was pretty excellent, please note this was befoe I went back to my red roots so I had to cover my blonde locks with a cheap red wig of long curls. I think I died my hair red the following week. So Halloween pretty much inspired me to stop being someone I wasn’t and embrace (*cough* enhance, cos I’m dying it more red these days) my ranga soul. Thanks Halloween, you’re ace.
But back to this weeks delicious meal plans. Remember Plan A is for those that eat it al and Plan B is a vegetarian one. Plan A is still 2/5ths vego because eating meat more responsibly is a good idea peeps.
