New Experiences

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).
