This week has been very stressful. Those of you who read my blogÂ will know I helped organise an event with Sir Ian Blair, I managed to eat 10 chicken nuggets that day. Drank too much red bull and got generally stressed.
Additionally this week is the first week of campaigning for student union elections, and i’ve been coerced into one of the campaigns for the presidency. This involved lots of boring talking to people and making banners and usually results in not enough food (and too much redbull).
When I got home yesterday I made myself a massive pasta improv. dish (havn’t had much spair time for shopping). 2 chicken breasts were sliced into small chunks and marinated in sweet chilli dipping sauce and lemon juice and Red Robin seasoning salt whilst I boiled water for the pasta (a mixture of shells and broken up spaghetti as I didn’t have enough of either).
I cooked up the chicken, added a tin of chopped tomatoes, a yellow pepper, a purple onion and some herbs de provence… when the pasta was just slightly al dente I drained it and added it to the pot to finish cooking in the juices.
This provided 2 massive heaped plates for my cavenous stomach as I watched the news. Then out for birthday drinks and back by 4am…
