I like to set goals for myself mainly around food (a source of enjoyment and anxiety). Here are some goals (I will mark them off upon completion)
1 To eat toasted banana bread with Greek yogurt, pecans and honey at Artie’s cafe
I achieved this on Wednesday the 29th June 2016!!
The above picture was taken at the cafe. The banana bread was warmed up. I felt very pleased that I completed this challenge!
2) Make risotto
3) Use fresh turmeric. I have completed this challenge, and discovered a new recipe: turmeric porridge!!
4) Have an afternoon tea at West Dean Gardens . This challenge was completed on my birthday, the 27th July 2016. The tea was not on three levels as shown in this picture, but only on two tiers: sandwiches (egg mayo, hummus and cucumber, with a scattering of watercress) on top, scones with a huge dollop of white cream over jam (strawberry on top!), cream cakes, chocolate brownie, fruit cake, macaroons, below. I would never have done this before, due to my OCD around eating out (lack of control over food production, hygiene concerns). A big step forward in my path towards emancipation. I was very pleased with myself.
5) London Eye river cruise
6) Make fresh bread
