Sweet Snapshot Sunday #1

When things hit  you hardest, you treat yourself. Or at least, that’s what I think you should do.

I didn’t have the greatest of weeks. Though things are a bit better now, if I had known that this week is going to be this bad I would’ve gone back to the week referred to a post I put up at the beginning of March and called it acceptable. But I guess that’s besides the point right now. I’m on the road to recovery right now, and hopefully it’s a smooth ride.

Nadia suggested the title “Sweet Snapshot Sunday” for whenever I wanted to make a post talking about the yummy edibles I consume. So here are this week’s sweet snapshots!

I wish I could tell you that I deeply enjoyed every one of these things. I wish I could describe the exact flavours. But I can’t. I have a bad cold, and my taste buds are failing me. I could only just barely register the taste of the dark chocolate base used in the Chocolate Cheesecake… and I struggled with everything else. It was really disappointing. 😦 I also bought some macaroons (which got a bit smashed in the bag and are thus not worthy of a picture), but I haven’t eaten them yet – I at least want to enjoy those!

Have you had any sweet things lately? Care to share? Is anybody else but me suffering from this bad weather that seems to be spreading everywhere? *sneezes*

Yes, I was actually craving tinned tuna at work. Don’t look at me funny; tuna is a perfectly delicious and healthy food, and I like eating it either in a wrap (with mayonnaise, sweet corn and lettuce) or with pasta (my favourite recipe includes lots of steamed veggies and a dollop of mayonnaise mixed altogether – yum).

So I go to the grocery store and pick out a can of tuna, and I tell myself that’s all I’m going to buy, but then I cross some really dangerous territory.

Happiness in a Post

This week was a bit of a hectic one, but there are always things that can make it better. Drawing inspiration from Rebecca Stibrany’s post, here’s a list of things that make me happy, in no particular order!

1. Chocolate

Glorious, glorious chocolate.

Even a person who’s barely familiar with me will know that chocolate is my absolute favourite thing in the world. If I’m having a stressful day, feeling upset or sick, lacking inspiration, bored, sleep-deprived, I can simply eat chocolate and feel instantly better.
