Simple Food / Other Things

One of my favourite things to do, when Mr. LL is not around (because he is not a fan), is cook myself really super-simple food. Clean, simple and light is my favourite way to eat and as I have been working out a lot lately, especially in the hours just before dinner time, I haven't felt like anything heavy anyway, (apparently no one does after a work out).

Chickpeas in an Italian tomato sauce with beans.

Deconstructed vegetarian version of Shepard's Pie.

Rice noodles with poached tofu and vegetables.

In other news, Mr. LL and I have a big anniversary coming up so we booked an amazing holiday.

This is the pool where we're staying. I can't wait. Yes, I will get over my fear of flying.

The pool and holiday is my reason for gym going and simple eating. Apart from feeling amazing from the lifestyle I'm currently leading, I would like to look and feel the best I've ever looked at felt whilst floating around in that pool. For a whole week. Doing nothing.

Did I mention I can't wait?

Someone asked to see my kitchen once. Here it is;

I hate the curtains so much , but there's always something more interesting than curtains to spend money on, non?

So, how's life for you?

I can only hope everyone has someone to love as much as I love these two..

And Mr. LL, of course.

Stay well,
