Last night we said goodbye to a friends abode with a pizza party with nog-tails (eggnog cocktails). In keeping with the season and the university air, the pizza was simple and the eggnog was spiked.
It was indeed a happy affair – having a much bigger and more diverse group of people to eat and cook with definitely got some party vibes going. I left feeling happily lazed and extremely overfed. However, I will note that I am undoubtedly more comfortable cooking in my own home. It’s just always a hassle searching for implements, not knowing the personality of the oven and fearing landlord retribution for any breakages.
I continued the unhealthy train this morning with Nutella French toast. Literally, bread flattened, covered with Nutella, rolled up, dipped in eggwash and fried up. This was a lonely and quick cooking affair. It definitely felt much more like food for fuel than food for fun. I was also somehow starving after last night and wolfed it.
All in all, after 2 weeks of happiness cooking, I am feeling pretty grand. But I think that probably has more to do with our potential upcoming move out of our swamp-apartment and the ever looming Christmas!
Happy circumstances, happy day.
