I was ultra organised last night and made both breakfast and lunch to take to work which meant I had time to go shopping at lunch time.
This was breakfast.
Orange, persimmon, pomegranate and granola. Chia seeds in macadamia nut milk. All mixed together it was very tasty. Knowing I had lunch in my bag I had time to pop out in to Monmouth Street at lunch time where I spotted 2 new shops. This one will take iron will to resist as ‘macarons & chocolats’ are too of my favourite things. Larsson & Jennings is a Swedish shop and it is so minimalist it took me a while to work out it sells watches! No temptation there for me, phew! Plenty in my favourite Swedish shop just a few doors along though, especially when I saw they were having a sale – yippee. That was the most expensive lunch of the year to date! Back at the desk I munched my way, very enjoyably, through my lunch. Celery, carrots and grapes. I dipped the carrots and celery in to the humous and when it was all gone I enjoyed the grapes. I enjoyed this cheeky little espresso a colleague bought me from Timberyard too.
Supper was amazing and is worthy of a proper recipe.
