You may remember in my post about Rigoni's Bistro I mentioned their rocket, caramalised pear and parmesan salad. It is definitely a combination to add to the 'classic combination' list. My list contains such combinations as: chocolate and banana, chocolate and mint, ham and cheese, egg and curry powder, strawberry and cream, chicken avocado and chicken beetroot. Horseradish and mustard!

I did it. I made macarons. I am overjoyed! What an achievement! I feel like I am a true food blogger now. I would say I feel like a great house wife, but I do not own a house or have a husband. Ok, so I am an honorary house wife who has an intention to purchase a house but no intention to acquire a husband. I had wanted to make macarons for a long time, but all the talk about them being so complicated and temperamental scared me away. But you know what? I have a university degree and $23,000 debt as a result. I can speak German, prepare financial reports and tie my own shoe laces. I am a talented weird little girl and there is no way I would let myself be defeated by a BISCUIT!

This is what I had each day for lunch last week. Not bad eh? Though, my lunch was a little different; the stew had been frozen, then defrosted and then warmed up in the microwave in a bowl with a plate over the top. I used to be against microwaves but when you work in an office environment without access to a stove and saucepan, you learn to let them into your life, little by little. Watch out though, as you may become addicted to the office microwave like me. You will then require a hot meal each and every day and multiple cups of hot full cream mik too! The funny thing is, I have never used the microwave at my house.

Whilst on exchange in Germany I decided to bake a cheesecake. It was one of those typical cheesecakes made with lots of sugar and Philadelphia cream cheese. At the time, I thought this kind of cheesecake was something pretty fantastic. Something that you would write home about. A friend tasted it and said it was nice but nothing outstanding. What?! I could not believe it! The key here is that this friend had been brought up on Quark cheesecakes, not Philadelphia cheesecakes. In his opinion, I had not tasted a cheesecake until I had tasted a Quark cheesecake.
