I feel a bit fat

Oh my god, I am turning into a girl blogger. Right now I just have this massive urge to write a whole blog post about how ashamed I feel about my eating patterns.

As I was leaving school today after a whole fun day of data entry (I will never be able to get the questions from that questionnaire out of my head), my colleague student asked me jokingly where I was having dinner today.

The thing is, you see, I haven't had dinner at home for like, two weeks. It's shameful. I'm a poor student, meant to live off pot noodles. Yet there I am, having my hot meals at GBP10 or so a piece. Shameful. There's no other word for it.

So as I was walking home today, I started planning my dinner in my head.

I would make a curry. Yes, a proper tomato based chicken curry, from scratch. This would simultaneously be relatively healthy, and also help empty cupboards ahead of my pending house move (I allow myself a small self-celebratory "YAY!" here).

And so I did. I have made a lovely chicken thigh thing with peas, which I love, and that luxury garam masala powder I got for Christmas. I defrosted some home made tarka daal from the freezer and microwaved some properly rinsed and soaked Basmati rice.

However.

As we all know, curries have to sit around for a while and simmer and do their thang.

That's when I spotted the large bag of crisps I'd carelessly left on the table earlier.

I was going to have just a few while waiting for dinner and surfing some blogs.

Unfortunately those particular crisps have a lot of MSG on them and are totally un-quittable once one has started.

So now I have a lovely curry on the cooker, and 100g of crisps in my tummy (that is an estimate, but that is like 5 portion bags of crisps..) and I am not at all hungry. Agggh!! How could I be so stupid!! That is like 500 calories, which is the same as cycling to school and back at least 3 times. And now I have to wait for about an hour before I have the curry and my eating patterns will be all messed up.

I wasn't going to give anything up for lent this year, but now it's clear. I am giving up crisps. After I finish the rest of the pack, obviously.

Couldn't just let them go to waste...

Oh, and while you're here, my curry recipe is as follows:

1 tin tomatoes
2 onions, finely sliced
Brown mustard seeds
Garam massala
Turmeric
Bay leaf
Tabasco (ran out of chillies)
Garlic
1 tin dried peas (for some reason I prefer these to fresh, weird, I know)
Black pepper, ground
Salt
Dash of possibly off cream I found in the fridge
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Extra cumin seeds

It seems to have turned out quite well. Should have had some ginger in it, but I think I'm out of that too. At least the cupboard emptying project is working. And I can always take some curry for lunch tomorrow in school.. Sigh again.

  1. I think this is a fantastic blog!! Thanks for the recipe.....my Prince loves curry. He's orginally from London, so I'm about the only one in my little southern town who knows what a crisp is, lol:)
