Ugh. Fuck this.

OMG so like I'm so ill atm. Like not headaches but some serious ass migraines, auras and nausea - plus I keep having some seriously fucked up nightmares. It's like Universe is trying to tell me something is afoot. Ahhhh well. Seriously though I am so sick.

So a few weeks back my brother and sister came to stay for like a few days and they left me with a Wii game that they were having issues with, so I was like “okay let's see what is up with this”. The game they left with me was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two...

A few things I may have failed to mention...

1) I LOVE HARRY POTTER!!!!!
And
2) I LOVE GAMING!!!!

By extension

I LOVE HARRY POTTER GAMES!!!!!!

So I've been playing it for like four hours non-stop. I can't wait to get the others :/ I'm a giant geek like that. I'll play it and Facebook about playing it for like ages. Currently I'm murdering the fuck out of some Death Eaters. Lol!

Omg it wa my brothers birthday a few weeks back! Omg it was so cute! Like balloons everywhere and I got to apes some quality time with them but sadly the hubby could come along! I was so gutted. It's strange because it was only a few days that I was a away but the two of us were basically dying! I missed him so so so  much. Is that sad? 

I haven't really got anything to blog about recently apart from food. I'm cooking Lot lately well not cooking like proper family meal cooking but like food that is easy my domestic goddess is yet to come out. Ugh. Actually that's a good point. I think I might make this blog about a meal that's like really easy... Hmmmm... Oh I know!

Mushroom, Red Pepper and Onion Cous Cous

 Literally the easiest shit you will ever make. 
I make it for me and the hubby as he has decided he wants to eat it in place of rice! I know. The Asian in him is being deprived. I actually hated the stuff but I didn't want to upset him so I said yes but now I don't mind it. It's quicker and you can eat less of it because it is so filling!

So you will need (lol just felt all art attack/ready steady cook!)
One red pepper (tbh no one cares if its red or not I actually like green better and I think it tastes better but also it looks really funky and fun...yeah... I know I need a life :/
A large white onion (again if you so please you can use a red onion too... Why are they called red? They are like a purple colour)
Maybe like ten to twelve mushrooms (wipe them DO NOT wash them. Who washes a mushroom?! Gosh. I actually peel the skin off because I don't like it unless I cba or don't have time)
A lot of Cous Cous say like for each person six handfuls (if it looks like too much it probably is but this stuff does expand like a pregnant woman)
Three table spoons of oil (only use a little you don't want the US to invade)
 A teaspoon of salt (or more if you're a person that likes salt. I try really hard to cut all fat and excess salt out of my husband diet- heart conditions run in the family, simple things like that make a small difference)
A pinch of ground black pepper

Yup. That's it. 

1) So chop up the mushrooms, pepper and onions. I usually dice the onions and peppers and then just slice up those mushrooms. Now I like my peppers crunchy, my onions and mushrooms soft so I start with the onion. 

2) To a pan add the oil and diced onion and stir so its all coated with oil. Put a lid on and sweat them for like five to six minutes. Make sure you stir regularly otherwise they might stick to the pan.

3) Stir in the mushrooms and the peppers when the onions are soft. Add the salt and pepper and mix well so everything gets a little salt :)

4) Let that cook for a bit. Again stir it regularly. If it looks like its going to stick or it does stick then add a little water and stir. I do this a lot in place of oil. Once everything is relatively cooked and soft take it off the heat and transfer it to a bowl, juice and all!

5) With the pan still off the heat add your Cous Cous to it and enough boiled water to cover it and a like a centimetre extra and cover with the lid. Wait for about 10 minutes then grab a fork (plastic seems to work better than normal) and fluff it all up. Add your cooked vegetables and stir it all together!

6) Plate up and nom!!! I love drinking elderflower pressé with it!

Next blog Ill do a bit about home made pizza. Seriously you'll never buy a pizza again!

Love,

Monica
