Last post I vented a little about how stressed I’d been with work and life lately. This post I’m venting too because things got worse! Last night on the way home from work I was involved in a car accident. I’m fine except for some bumps, bruises and a really sore neck. However my poor car hasn’t had the same luck.
So, no car meant no work for me today, which would ordinarily be seen as a positive because it would mean I could do some much needed work to catch up! Of course as I wasn’t expecting to be home today I left my work laptop at work!
Which means that I’m sitting in my apartment with not much to do. I’ve had a bath and was quite relaxed and then insurance called me and ruined my bath….I’ve eaten some Barbeque Shapes and had a few cups of tea….I’ve watched the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and the OC….And now I’m writing up my grocery list, which has inspired me to write a blog post.
Lex and I like similar foods and have similar tastebuds, which means our fridge and pantry is usually stocked with the same ingredients. It got me thinking, what are your 5 must have items in your kitchen?
In no particular order mine are:
Fresh chilli – we keep a whole container in the freezer to use whenever we need – which is most meals!
Milk – I love my cups of tea so milk is a must for me. This grocery shop I’m thinking of making the change to Almond Milk
Fresh fruit – I snack all the time (hence why I’ve already eaten Barbeque Shapes and it’s not even lunch time). I find having fresh fruit to take to work and have at home is a much healthier alternative
Tea – my British side must be quite strong because I’m obsessed with tea. Normally I have Black Tea but have recently stocked my pantry with all sorts of tea from T2. My current favourite is called Gorgeous Geisha. A beautiful Green Tea with Strawberry and Cream
Red wine – we actually just bought some nice Industrial style shelves from Muji and our collection of Red wine sits proudly on display. A glass of Red is always nice with dinner and was much needed after last night’s drama!
