Spinach, Quinoa, and Pomegranate Salad
I call this salad, but it is actually much, much better than salad. It's all yummy cause you got some chewy grains, sweet pommies, crunchy spinach with a delicious mustard-olive oil dressing and some tuna (so not totally vegan). I ate this with my Mum yesterday after chilling with her in a coffee shop surrounded by *ahem* erotic books that I did NOT realise were there until I almost spilled my tea on one of them!!
My mother also consented my drinking of brandy-spiked tea. I feel fabulous.
Then we came home, ate this AMAZING chewy-crunchy-sweet salad bowl and I tried to do some economics. LOL. I actually just procrastinated and looked up Deliciously Ella's sweet potato brownies and drooled. Ahhh.
But Easter break is so so so so so soon and I am ver ver excited. I still have a ton of studying to do, cause of mocks, but still. I re-met the cutest boy yesterday and I am almost done with Pride and Prejudice, and I must admit, kudos to Jane Austen because I am frigging in love with it. I know half the world is, too, but c'mon, classics are supposed to be the books everyone LOVES but has not actually read. But read Pride and Prejudice! Elizabeth is smart and insightful, Lydia is annoying, and Darcy is just... a cross between a cold fish and a warm lil sexy toast.
See you guys soon + love you!
