It’s November. The rents been taken out. The overdraft has been well and truly broken into, so Dominos Fridays are no longer a thing. What a sad, sad sentence. I will not however be deprived of my cheesy pizza and, as if I wasn’t procrastinating enough already, I decided there would be no better way to spend a Friday night than making my own with my pals.
We popped down to Tesco bought some bases [no way was I putting dough on the tabletops of our uni kitchen], some tomato sauce, a ball of mozzarella [does anyone else find raw mozzarella VILE, why is it that slimy!? ew ew ew] and some weird selection of vegetables and fake cheese for Anna [vegan]. All the ingredients cost about £1.80 per pizza. Get home, chuck it all together and into the oven for 14 minutes at 200 and BOOM your perfect lil pizza!! A perfect little pizza you don’t have to run outside in the cold, in your pjs to collect from some guy a in a car, result.
Being friends with Anna for over a year now I’d managed to avoid her cooking me a meal [I’m a carnivore, soz] but caved the other week when she offered to make a dessert that she promised I would love.
Pulling her protein powder and massive bag of oats out of her bag, I was skeptical. However, I’ve gotta give it to her- her mug cakes are a thing of beauty.
Shove it all in a mug and pop in the microwave for 1 minute [don’t go over- there was a slight explosion when I attempted to re-create them on my own, once again big sorry to the microwave and flat for that one]
Personally I’d still prefer to devour a shit-load of biscuits with a cuppa but seen as i’m committed to this health lifestyle now [ugh] it’s a fab little substitute that doesn’t leave you feeling guilty after. So the Vegan won this one- but, I’m still not going to cave. I am enjoying your attempts though Anna, fair play.
Our Friday foodie night is becoming a weekly occasion and perhaps THE highlight of my week. So lovely to finish the week, relaxing, catching up, venting, singing, dancing, telling jokes and eating in your pjs with your pals.

Losing one’s job is painful, it can be one of the most destructive events happening in ones life. I should know I have been through a few of them. Most recently I was laid off March 2nd, 2023. An unexpected shock as the organization I worked for gave no indication there would be any form […]
The pain of being laid off is affecting thousands, but mostly in big tech. It saddens me to say I was just laid off and although I did not work or one of the major big tech companies like Twitter, Alphabet and others we were still apart of financial tech. Here is a recent article […]
Happy New Year 2023! What the new year means to me, to you, to the world. It means something different for everyone. Some create resolutions for the new year to be new person, new goals. I am often reminded of when I would attend my local gym, a 24-hour fitness which by the way is […]
