After getting to work on pomegranate number 2 I have come to the conclusion that pomogranate is just not worth the effort, not ones bought in Aberdeen anyway!
Firstly they look a bit.... peely wally and sad, dull pale red or a pale pinky-red-yellow kind of colour.
Then inside, I was expecting something like this:
But the reality looks a bit dry and more like lots of seeds with a wee bit of juice, not like a little plump and juicy berries with a little seed inside
I mean they don't look bad or anything, just not so exciting!
Which is why I added vodka! :D
It was....not as good as it looks! Too bitter. And I still had 3 more left! I'm not impressed but they are good enough for me to eat the rest so I am trying again tomorrow and have packed a tub of raspberries and pomegranate arils to take to work tomorrow
I also packed up some oats with coconut water and a thinly sliced banana for breakfast and a salad with mived leaves, grated courgette, yellow pepper and pomodoro tomatoes with some extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and mustard dressing to add
I'm feeling much better today and even ate lunch so thought I should get back into the habit of preparing food to take into work. I now just have a painful and irritating cough but at least I feel normal and have a lot more. Which is just as well since I had to spend this evening preparing food for my friends who are coming round for dinner and drinks tomorrow - I can't wait!
