Lazy Lunch For One.
Sounds sad much? Not in the least bit, this was the best way to enjoy a weekend filled with rain, rain and much more rain. My intention was to sleep all through Saturday in preparation for Sunday but my body had other plans, I just could not sleep anymore after 9 am. So I decided to treat myself to a lovely lunch which I was going to enjoy with a glass (or three) of wine prepared by me for me.
Now my only question was what was I going to make that would not require me to get dressed and brave the rain in a bid to get additional ingredients, but rather make use of the ones I already had. So best place to find the answer was on Facebook (if like me you have about a hundred liked pages of food preparation you know exactly what I am talking about). Chicken instant noodle stir fry was my pick, it requires very little energy and even less cooking time and not fine chopping just a few slashes and your vegies are good for the pan, given my lazy mood it was a perfect choice.
As I was cooking l could not help but wish my sister was with me so we could goof around and get our hands dirty but a sense of self somewhat gave me comfort. I was enjoying my own company with the help of some music and it felt really good. What made the moment even more precious was that I was not going to have to share my meal (shameless moment of selfishness) which meant left overs galore.
One thing I have come to realise is that we get so caught up in wanting to always be on the go with a whole bunch of people especially during the weekend which is exhausting and expensive (two thirds of the time). The alternative for me was probably the best weekend l have had in ages, enjoying my own company was truly rewarding. I had my own little adventure indoors and a good weekend’s rest, what more can a girl ask for.
