I think I may hate art well, I like the lessons, but there’s so much homework it’s ridiculous. So, today I spent two hours doing lovely, wonderful maths homework (I love maths, I’m a weirdo) and now I’m gonna go do some art. And quickly, because the earlier I go to bed the earlier I can go out and get in my morning swim! Awesome motivation, huh?
So, when you’re feeling down and want to put off doing your homework what do you do? You make something with pumpkin in of course!
Today’s dinner was:
-Easy-peasy sweet potato mash
-Yellow lentil dahl
–Spicy pumpkin curry
-Stir fried seitan
The sweet potato is just five minutes per potato in the microwave and then mashed with a little salt. It’s divine, I promise.
The lentil dahl is all about the garlic, ginger, corriander and turmeric, baby! Add all that to some yellow lentils and simmer for 40 minutes. So easy but it’s like a party in your mouth. And healthy, too. Add a little cinnamon if you like it sweeter.
Spicy pumpkin curry was a little more complicated – the pumpkin went in the oven for 20 minutes, whole, and then got diced and fried with two chillies, a lot of garam marsala spice mix, three small red onions, a bunch of mushrooms and two tins of organic plum tomatoes. Simmered for about 20 minutes. Niiiice.
Another thing on my mind today? My Chemical fucking Romance! My first loves, and they’re back. As anyone who’s read this blog will know I am very very excited about the new album. And I have a fabulous killjoy outfit all ready, including silly red hair a la Gerard in the new video trailer, and I’ll be posting a picture of it soon, so watch out for it.
Questions of the day:
How much homework is too much? Do you like maths, like, even a bit? Or am I alone here? And what’s your favourite way to enjoy pumpkin? Sweet? Savoury? Spicy? Creamy? Ah, possibilities.
