Ice cream sundae :)

Today I went out with my sports team and got an absolutely enormous ice cream sundae which was far too big for me to need more lunch! A photo (with bonus me in it) will hopefully arrive soon.

Cheesy Melt Wraps

I really like tortilla wraps, and I'd been planning on having them hot with beans, cheese and tomatoes. Then I looked in the cupboard and discovered that the beans I thought I'd bought were actually mushroom soup, so I had to do without them.

I warmed them for a bit under a minute to melt the cheese a little - if I had beans in them I would have cooked them first.

I think they'd have been even better with something green in them; perhaps lettuce or mixed salad. One of these days I'm going to make a foray into the pages of my Mexican cookbook and make proper burritos.

Cake, or something like it

We followed the recipe almost exactly, but my oven is truely appalling so the cake did not cook. So we put it into bowls and microwaved it.

Some of my kitchenmates came and shared it with us - it is more like pudding than cake but it is delicious! The fruit you can see is raspberries, we used almost four punnets altogether which might be one of the reasons it didn't cook well.

And here is the icing which didn't go on top of it - also raspberries, and lots of sugar and butter. It tastes like ice cream!

It was fun and it's tasty and I'll have pudding for days, but I'm looking forwards to having a proper oven next year!

Once again I forgot my camera, which this time is a huge shame because "lunch" (it was more like brunch) today was gorgeous! I went out for a post-exams celebratory waffle with a friend and we each had one topped with ice cream, chocolate sauce, Smarties and chocolate buttons with a sprinkling of icing sugar on top. I'm sure I'll go there again fairly soon and I might remember to take a photo to show you all how delicious it was.

Tomorrow I'm baking cakes with a friend, so lunch is likely to be boring and light to make room. If they turn out pretty I'll take photos, I promise.

Comfort Food

Everyone has their favourite comfort food, right? I have a few (I love buttered crumpets followed by fruit yoghurt) but toast is my go-to at the moment because my toaster is right here in my room and I can munch on it while I revise.

Today's lunch is brought to you by the power of miserable weather and tomorrow morning's exam.

The right-hand piece of toast is peanut butter. Mmm, peanut butter.

Doesn't that look good?
