Lenny et al

Yesterday I made a new friend, whose name is Lenny. SoR and I had a little bit of a dancing around moment, squealing 'SNAKE' and wishing wr had shoes. On further investigation, Lenny turned out to be a blue-tongued skink/lizard, and is pretty awesome. The adrenalin rush having worn off,we named him and decided to keep him (not that we really had any other option - than keeping him, I mean. Naming him was all choice, I swear).

The picture is actually a photo of my laptop screen image of someone else's photo. Don't ask me why I did it that way, it just seemed like a good idea at the time.

Last night, I invited some of the internationals over for dinner. I cooked beef stroganoff, and had all these amazing ideas of taking photos of each step of the cooking process, showing the delicious ingredients and how amazing a google chef I am.

I got a photo of all of the ingredients sitting on the countertop, and then the chaos set in. Our kitchen is just normal kitchen size, and we had people making pizza for their dinner, others opening bottles of wine, oters heating up water for pasta... I am sorry to say that I only got that one photo. I didn't even get a photo of the finished process, but I can at least tell you now that it was delicious.

It was a very satisfying way to spend my only day off, and we stayed up late socialising over a glass or two of red wine, in a truly Spanish fashion (even Spanish wine) and I hope we get to do something like that more often. I have to say that the majority of my international colleagues are truly nice people!

Anyway, I must get on - places to go, people to see, uniform to iron, you know the drill.



  1. Wow! You'd have to be a REALLY bad cook not to be able to do a good job with those ingredients! Yum!

  2. I'm surprised you didn't make gnocchi, which is REALLY dad's fav hahaha
