For the last little while I have been feeling a little off. The only way I can describe it is that I feel like I am sitting in an old church, reflecting and praying, I can look out the through the beautiful coloured windows and see light, but it just isn’t hitting me at the moment. And I am not quite ready to leave the sanctuary of the church.
When I feel like this I find solace Nigella-esk style in food. Curry, ragu, pasta, cakes, tasty flavours, well anything other than salad really which is what I love to eat most days. But I have been yearning for more than that.
Now those who know me well know that there are two things I don’t do:
1. Packet cake mixes; and
2. Food courts
On Monday when J a colleague told me about this good Japanese take away joint in a food court I was torn. Tasty Japanese food YES, Food court NO! But my mood dictated its wants and off we went.
My eyes lit up like Christmas morning when I saw the retrolicious, big, fat chicken dim sim and I knew I was home. I had not had one of these beauties since they went out of fashion in the 90s. It was good. DAM GOOD! So this is how my work day dining has gone over this week...
The Dim Sim
Chicken dim sim
Chicken dim sim and bowl of Japanese style vegetables
Chicken dim sim x two
Chicken dim sim and packet of gyozas
Today (Thursday) I was embarrassed. I rocked up to the counter today the young boy said “Hi, dim sim?” ummm "Yes".
Then I swung back past the inconvenience store and picked up a pack of Zappos. Those chewy lollies rock my world and I am plan to eat the whole packet. That's how I roll.
Hopefully this mood will pass soon enough because I do not what to have to own up to frequenting a food court and I need to work on getting rid of the arse I have grown this week.
P.S. I even changed my font for this post to show how out of sorts I really am.
