Soup and Trackies
Winter is coming and so I need a a bucket of soup, if not more. Soup is my best bud when it get’s chillier out and fortunately it’s very easy to make plenty of it in one go. I had so much to do this weekend (mainly finding pressies for my family) that naturally I decided to postpone everything, stay in, put on my trackies and chill out. Surely I’ll regret it later when I’m doing shopping and find myself in the middle of the crazy Christmas shoppers, but it was a beautiful weekend. I made this broccoli soup (Simple recipe – click!) and it was just delish. I also made what I find one of the best starters on the flippin’ planet: filo pastry filled with some goats cheese, some pine nuts and a tiny bit of dried thyme. Do try, it’s savage.
Jason Segel movies
So…When you guys want to watch a movie but don’t know what you want to watch yet, how do you search for inspiration? By genre, year, director? I tend to go to IMDB and look through movies per actor or actress that I liked in a movie I saw before. Just finished with a Jennifer Aniston phase I decided to look for movies either written by or starring Jason Segel. Forgetting Sarah Marshall has been a favourite of mine for a while and I wanted to check what else he made. The Five Year Engagement was quite fun too though very long, though I should’ve seen that coming really with a title like that. On a side note: he seems to appear naked in most of the movies he wrote himself. Swag, Jason.
I just started learning to knit today – and my god do I find it fun and addictive. I found myself “just doing a few more stitches” and then ending up two rows further having to force myself to stop. I just started a navy blue scarf, but who knows someday I’ll finish a majestic Weasley jumper.
My Twitter account has been very quiet for a few years… Until last week. A few years ago I just sent out one Tweet, followed Evanna Lynch (fangirl, me) and a few others, but got bored after a few weeks and never looked at it again. Since last week, the lil white bird is the first icon I click whenever on an electronic device. I don’t know what exactly caused the switch but I’m having a lot of fun with it. Since actively starting to tweet last week I’ve had a discussion about gigantic Jaffa Cakes, had fun making up and posting puns, had a convo with a total stranger on the delivery time for parcels, seen the funniest and most stunning picures floating by and was kept very up to date on any news.
