My mind is official a puddle of mush from the incredibly long day and lack of sleep the night before. Also, I’ve got a ton of sugar in my system.
It was mom’s birthday today yesterday and we pretty much celebrated with coffee and cake throughout the day! I’m just about riding out the sugar rush and will probably end up snoozing over the keyboard, so it’s gonna be short & sweet tonight.
All started with me catching a throat infection, which obviously then turned into a fever. As soon as I started getting better, our grandma got sick and my recovery went down the drain as I was so worried about her!
Like I said, crazy.
I am finally getting more than three hours of sleep a night after three days and I am sleeping like the dead.
The chilly days are numbered and the sun makes a daily appearance instead of playing peek-a-boo and as the first month of the year comes to a close- already!- I can’t help wondering how quickly this year will also race on by. No longer do 24 hours in a day seem to be nearly enough. I have yet to pick up my child psychology course which I left behind a year back and haven’t glanced at since.
I cannot, however, say that this first month was unsuccessful in keeping with my goals. Let’s hope from today onwards I can cram more into a day.
Which would mean a little less time in the kitchen, especially when putting together dinners. That’s when this Homemade Flour Tortillas recipe comes to the rescue.
I have tried out a myriad of tortilla recipes before refining and settling on this one. It’s full proof.
I stuck to my healthy eating resolution pretty consistently last year and not only as a goal to meet. I’ve managed to incorporate more healthy food and eating habits into my daily routine.
A fair bit of salad gets consumed at home and although I’ve played around with flavors to an extent, I want to really dive into the salad game this year. Hopefully, that means more salad recipes scattered among the pastas and desserts.
With 2018 coming to an end, I decided to throw this year’s healthy mantra away to enjoy these decadent Sticky Toffee & Walnut Puddings!
To be completely honest, this isn’t the first time this year that I’ve enjoyed this particular dessert. A real close friend of mine had chosen this as one of the desserts at a recent wedding. That’s where I was hooked. It is, however, the first time I’m making these at home.
