Someone asked me “what I do” the other day, and I told them I was a “full-time blogger”. They were confused, and I corrected them, saying I’m actually unemployed. Which I am. The dream is to one day answer that question without the person asking becoming awkward and regretful.
When I was working, it would also be awkward to answer. Have you ever been at a party and had to explain your “weird” job? It’s not that my job was ever weird, per say, but my interests tend to be. After finding out I’m a lawyer, most would ask which area I worked in. You know, music’s going, and everyone’s happy. And I would say something like, “oh, you know” and avoid answering. Because when I would answer with: “I do compensation claims for children who are victims of physical and sexual abuse”, it tends to be a bit of a downer. Apparently most peeps tend to find that topic uncomfortable, and it can only get worse if we get into the fact I find the topic thoroughly fascinating. It is fascinating; don’t judge me, too! Before that I did claims for domestic violence clients, so now you know why my work life doesn’t often come into chunky-blog-land often.
Colour Wheels do, though!
*Batman voice* In a world of darkness, what this world needs is a bit of colour, a plate of colour, a Colour Wheel to fill you with the rainbow so you can glow from the inside and light up the darkness *Batman voice ends*.
Is this a ridiculous Batman quote, or just your eating future? It’s likely an exaggeration, because my food isn’t radioactive. Bananas are! But apparently you need to eat something like 10,000,000 before you die. Even Freeleethebananagirl isn’t going to eat that many.
- 2 cups chard
- 1 cup basil
- 1 TB yellow miso paste
- 1 tsp sumac
- 2 garlic cloves
- 2 TB water
- 2-3 TB nutritional yeast
- Rice - I used Thai Jingu Berries
- tomatoes - halved
- Sweet potato
- Spinach, chopped
- Pepitas, to serve
- Cook the rice as packet-directed, and bake the sweet potatoes for approximately 25 minutes at 200*C
- In a small blender, blend the pesto ingredients.
- To serve, dollop the pesto over everything. When I serve these to my partner (he'll be at work, driving), I mix everything all together in a large bowl, sprinkling the pepitas over the top and seasoning well.
