I just came back from a holiday. We went to Poland,I showed Boyfriend the town I was born in, the place I went to uni (and where Copernicus was born), let him fall in love with the area and nag me to move there with him (ha!). This is the irony of life – you dream of living in the UK, move there, start feeling happy and end up with an Englishman who dreams of living in Poland.
We hit the town (towns more like – it was a road trip), got smashed with my professor from uni and expert on Kant’s philosophy; met old and new friends. Boyfriend also got introduced to Fred the dog. And then the holiday was over.
When you are away for more than a week, after you come back, there is nothing in the fridge. That’s why in case of such emergency you should always keep some tinned beans etc. in your house. You can always produce chilli sin carne out of almost nothing.
Chilli sin carne
200grams of quorn meat
2 red chillies
can of chopped tomatoes
can of kidney beans
small can of sweetcorn
cup of rice (enough for 2 people)
1. Wash rice and boil in twice as much water as you’ve got rice with a pinch of salt
3.Add quorn mince meat (you can replace it with red lentils) and chopped tomatoes. Stir and cook till it gets thicker.
4. Add some oregano.
5. When the sauce thickens add kidney beans and sweetcorn.
6. With 2 chillies it should be hot, but if you need it to be more spicy, add some cayenne pepper (if you want your eyes to pop out).
Serve with rice.
