Happiness this week is... #55


I can barely remember anything from before the weekend... anyone else ever get that? I'm sure I was mostly studying, so basically all the happy things are from the weekend (or food).

Baked sweet potato and beans. My new fave dinner basically, perfect with a little side salad. Can you believe it was my first time to try baked sweet potato?!
Having a weekend break at my parents' with Max. It was a much needed break! We did a lot of relaxing, lots of walking, and watched Jurassic World (and I wore my new Jurassic World sweater).

Pizza, and pinot grigio! There's gonna be a lot of food in this post... and yes the pizza was vegan (no cheese, vegan base). I went to Pizza Express with Max and my family to celebrate my dad's birthday, usually Pizza Express are awesome, but they cooked mine wrong and ended up turning the sultanas into charcoal so we sent it back, and the next one I got they drowned in sultanas... not sure if it was meant to be a nice gesture or not...
Countryside walks; something I very much miss about home. We went to Tilgate Park, admired the colourful leaves and other peoples' dogs, ate chips, and explored. Max and I also walked the 'country road' route into town. We saw sheep, cows, and stroked some horses.
Courgette and pea soup. I was wary to try this but OMFGKJKASJ how amazing! I had this at a family owned place called CJ's in my hometown, sat out on the terrace overlooking the old church and graveyard, with a fruity cider. A perfect goodbye to the last of good weather.

How has your week been? :-)

  1. Sultanas on a pizza, are you mad?! You know, it annoys me so much that I have to check pizza bases... like what the hell World, why you be putting milk, butter or other animal products in dough?! Now I'm worried that the pizza we ate in Italy wasn't vegan because of the base... damn you Pizza. Also apparently not all fries in Belgium at fried in oil... some times in beef fat. What the hell Belgium, why you do this to me?!


    I quite like courgette in soup, I've made courgette and spinach, and courgette and leek so far :)

  5. It's not bad when there's a few scattered across it but you couldn't see the pizza for the amount of sultanas they put on top! Yeh, I only know that Pizza Express have vegan pizza bases. And that's disgusting! I am wary of what chips are fried in sometimes :-/


    Courgette and leek sounds good - I have both at the mo so might make that tomorrow!

  7. Thank you :-) I'm loving the bright oranges of the leaves on the trees, I just wish they didn't all have to fall off!

  8. I'd never tried it before! I never liked courgettes before I went to France this summer, now I always have at least one in the fridge! Oh you really do - so much better than normal baked potatos, so soft and sweet and creamy, beans complement it perfectly as well :-)
