Brussel sprout Soup

It doesn't look appetising but it does taste good. It went really well with yesterday's bread knots! :D
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic
1 onion
2 green peppers (I regret adding this. It made the soup bitter.)
1 turnip
10~ brussel sprouts
5 olives (didn't really need it but I'm too excited with this stuff!!)
1 beef stock

Today, I did quite a lot of shopping. I went to the Real Food Store that I discovered through the university's Slow Food Society. I've never been to any of their socials, nor have I paid the society fee (5.00 pounds), but I just check what's going on through facebook. They are having a fish night on Thursday and I'm thinking of going.

The Real Food Store is a small shop that sells bread, veg, some meat and other products and there's a cafe on the first floor. This was the first time I went and I thought it was nice that customers were chatting with the shop assistants. One shop assistant even asked me if I was ok! I ended up buying cauliflower, green peppers, onions, potatoes and turnips. I thought of buying coconut milk because I watched how to make Thai green curry and they use a lot of coconut milk. But I decided to go to tesco and see their price. Another reason I didn't but it was because I didn't want to buy too much that I can't finish the veg off before it goes bad. Not that that has ever happened.

I was planning to put cauliflower in the soup but the brussel sprouts that I didn't eat for lunch ended up enough so I left it out. Oh maybe I could make Thai green curry with it!! I'll wait until Monday to see the price of coconut milk at RFS. Should have jotted that down.

Tomorrow, I'm going to make another chocolate cake with Nancy. I don't want to be misleading but I thought it might be nice if I spent time with her (I don't know if she still likes me though). Also, it will be a good opportunity to bake without getting fat because someone else will be eating most of the cake (that's the main reason lol).


  1. Nancy is totally hot! I'd like to bake a cake with her!

    When are you coming back to prison?

  2. My course ends on December 17th and i'll come straight back in flight on 18th. I'll be cooking my ass off with my mum until January 6th.
