Everything in moderation. Including moderation. ~ Unknown
Maybe it's something to do with eating really healthily for the last little bit to fit into my wedding dress or maybe it's to do with the self restraint required for not eating cookies for the whole of Lent but in the last week I've been back up in Auckland, I've basically eaten my weight in food. I'm eating like it's going out of fashion.
A mere 3 weeks before my wedding and I've gone from a Wedding Diet to a See Food And Eat It Diet.
I kid you not, in the last week we've eaten at Sri Mahkota, Sun World, Canton Cafe, and Muse and at each and every meal I've eaten until it hurt to move: slow braised pork belly, steamed garlic prawns, beef brisket noodle soup, crispy fried chicken, soy honey lamb chops, shallots chicken, four seasons beans. While the rest of the table are already clutching their bellies in fullness, I'd still be shoveling food in my mouth. Need a dish finished off? No worries, pass it to Nessie.
Not to mention the pies-ing I've been doing at home: I've single-handedly demolished a whole 1.5 kilograms of greek yoghurt with a whole bottle of kithul treacle from Sri Lanka, made and eaten a whole stack of cinnamon oat pancakes smothered in golden syrup and then a massive batch of butter chicken and hoovered up almost half a batch of these Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies. They're gluten free, so simple to make you could make them with one hand tied behind your back and SO addictive you too will have trouble not eating all the dough even before it hits the oven.
Who ate all the cookies in the cookie jar? Nessie ate all the cookies in the cookie jar.
Oh self restraint, why have you abandoned me???
