I went to Milan and had a great time with my friends. What can I say, I miss them so much...
The food was absolutely not blogworthly: we ate at the apartment, mainly rice, pasta and salad (and some veggies and fruit, don't worry!). It came out as a very inexpensive weekend. The flight back took me an eternity because my flight got canceled, and by the time I was sitting in the plane I was extremely grateful that I didn't get to spend the night alone in an airport in Milan.
I made some nice meals the week before I went to my trip and I still have to show them to you! First a not-so-interesting green soup, made with kale, lettuce, potatoes, carrots, leeks, and topped with panko bread crumbs.
But also, a lot more interesting, black eyed pea - millet croquettes, adapted from VWAV. I didn't have any quinoa, and they came out perfectly with millet. The only downside is that they were a bit dry and kind of falling apart.
We've been having a lot of salad lately, and my favorite salads have always warm ingredients. I've discovered that stir-fried kale with millet is my favorite combo! With some lettuce and raw veggies, mmmm.
I really had to tell you about the kale and millet...
But the last picture I have is actually something else. A bolognese sauce made with TVP over pasta. I'm not a big fan of meat substitutes, but this TVP thing tasted like the real thing. It was even a bit creepy!
In other news, I have two interviews this week! A phone interview tomorrow and a face-to-face one on Wednesday. I'm a bit scared, don't know why...
And on Thursday, I'm going to Barcelona with my boyfriend to visit my father. He just bought a new apartment and moved in, and he was very excited that we're coming to visit.
I still have to do a meme because I've been tagged! And I have a couple of new things to show, so I promise I won't continue to be lazy and will post more often. And expect a visit to your blog soon!
