I’m a person who likes food. In fact, if I had things my way, my parents would be entertaining a lot more than they usually do now, just so that I can make delicious snacks, as well as meals.
In earlier days I would have just decided what I wanted to make, and then make it for Lunch, or just for the hell of it. Unfortunately, lately that’s not really been possible, as I’m sticking to my diet again.
This week, however, I’m taking on three food projects. Tomorrow I’ll be making a curry from scratch, because I’ve always wanted a proper one. Friday, I’m making Lasagne Bolognese with garlic bread and a salad, because friends of my parents are coming over for dinner, and finally, on Sunday, my sister will be having her belated birthday party, for which I’m going to make all kinds of different foods as well. Just thinking about it has me quite hungry, already.
Next Monday I’ll probably be sick of cooking for a while, but honestly, I don’t mind. My University work needs attention too!

Religiously speaking, I’m not much of anything, and I’m definitely not Catholic. However, since my parents raised me (relatively) well, I know some about all kinds of religious holidays. Generally, I don’t observe any (by observe I just mean watch, perceive, notice, not to show regard for), except for the ones that get me free days from university.
Generally, my family only ‘celebrates’ Easter and Christmas with some really, really good food. However, this year I’m also doing Lent, my way.
In August of last year, I went to see a dietician, because I needed new eating habits, for my health as well as my weight. For a few weeks I was very vigilant about the diet, and it worked well. Then obviously, came Christmas, and it went out the window, because I love food.
Ever since Christmas I’ve been having trouble getting back into the groove. This is where Lent comes in. A few weeks ago Caitlin, said something on her facebook page about it, and that got me thinking.
Lent is a fixed period of time, with an end date, and a reward at the end, in the form of loads of Easter Eggs, chocolate or otherwise.
So, I’ve decided to stick to my diet for Lent, which is going well so far, but I’m sure it will be somewhat of a challenge!
