So this week I thought I’d write about new things I’d tried since being at Uni after talking about never having seen Russell Howard’s programme in my previous post. I guess that just got me thinking and inspired me to write this one.
There has been lots in the way of food that I have tried since coming to Uni such as fajitas which had never really appealed to me before as I thought they’d be too spicy and I don’t like spicy food. We had a Mexican night one night where everyone chipped in a bit of money and one of my flatmates cooked everyone fajitas. I couldn’t believe what I was missing out on. They are flavoursome but not overly spicy. I would definitely have them again so maybe I’ll try making them this time. Someone also cooked me enchilada’s which I had never had before. I’m not sure why I hadn’t tasted these either but I think I’d filed them under the same category as fajitas and thought they’d be too spicy for me. I liked the enchiladas too but I think I preferred the fajitas.
Another thing I tried was pasties which were cooked for me yet again. I think these had to be my favourite of all. My friend who made them is from Cornwall where pasties originated from so these were a regular meal for her.
I’ve also been introduced to a lot of new TV and films (not good when you have assignment deadlines looming.) Russell Howard was one who I’ve never seen before and his stuff is quite funny. Can’t wait to see him next month! I’d also never seen Fresh Prince of Bel Air (I know, where have I been? What have I been doing with my life?) Ali G and Kevin and Perry were new additions too which were funny, easy watching.
Uni is a place for trying new things and so far I think I’ve done pretty well (food wise anyway).
