Winter has come. But, it’s about to get worse.
I honestly didn’t know that I could live in sub-zero temperatures; this is an alien concept for a Durbanite. I have, many a times, considered getting a bobsled just because it seems fitting. I now know what it feels like to crave warmth. I want to walk out in a flowy summer dress and slops feeling the sun kiss my ebony skin. But…I have neatly packaged those thoughts away and placed them right at the back of my mind. I have another 3 or 4 months of cold.
The great thing about this weather is that I can stay in and cook warm, hearty meals. People don’t judge you for wanting to go home to curl in to ball and drink tea (read: wine) on a potentially good night out. I have been browsing the net looking for healthy winter meals to indulge in this winter. I found a winner a couple of weeks ago. Off to the morning market to find fresh produce I went! It was worth waking up at 05:30 am to find giant blocks of tofu for RMB 1.50! Hella crazy! I made a Thai Tofu, Butternut Squash and Aubergine Soup. You can find the recipe here.
I am mentally drawing up a winter survival kit. Food, fun, friends are at the top of my list.
