WIAW: Lazy

I know, I know. It's been ages since I've posted. It won't happen again. Last Wednesday I intended to post, but it was the day I came back to Brisbane from home and I didn't get a chance to. The past week I have just been adapting back to life in Brisbane - mostly to the cold. Back home it was always so hot.

It's the Masterchef finale tonight. They just went to an ad break before they announced if Andy had gotten through to the top two. I actually feel nervous. I really want him to win this season.

Anyway, now I am back at uni and back into a routine so I will go back to regular posting. Also, I joined a gym today! I have never been a gym member before, but the gym at the shopping centre next door to my house (I mean this literally) is beautiful, and the people are incredibly friendly. The classes also look amazing, so I'm excited to get going. I've never been excited about a gym before.

So I thought for this week's WIAW I would just go over some recent eats (I unfortunantly didn't record a lot of my eats so these are some random pictures for you all).

BTW, Andy just got through. There is a lot of excitement in this house at the moment.


And as usual, a big thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting this wonderful blogger party.


Sushi from the new sushi place that opened back home - we are a VERY small town, so it's weird to have a sushi shop. One avocado and salmon roll, one prawn and avocado roll. 


My brother's birthday cake, made by my wonderful Aunt. It was delicious, as well as gorgeous. Happy belated birthday, Shaun, btw. 


My dinner plate from my brother's birthday - the typical feast for our family - lasagne, crumbed chicken, potato, salad, pumpkin and sweet potato. 


A pasta salad I made the other day. Will share the recipe soon. 


Apple crumble. Again, recipe will be shared soon. 


One of the best dinners I have had in a while - grilled lemon and rosemary fish, tomato salsa, brown rice and some sourdough bread.


My lunch today - an egg white omelette filled with cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, salmon, spinach and fetta.


Our dinner tonight - rosemary roast lamb, with sweet potato, pumpkin, potato, carrots and sweedes, and a rustic bread roll on the side. It was absolutely fabulous.

So that's about all I have to share with you guys at the moment. Hope you are having a lovely week - can't wait to get back into uni and blogging again. At the moment I'm stressing out a little, because uni has just announced an insane amount of assignments I have to complete this semester - but I suppose it is spread out over the semester so I should be ok. And tomorrow I have my first class at the gym. Wish me luck!
