Granola Cookie Wedges

Easter came and went in a flash, and to be honest, I don't really recall doing much this past week! It's not really much of a celebration for me, it's more of an excuse to eat more chocolate and to laze about for a week or so, but I always feel somewhat unaccomplished if I don't do anything notable since it just passes so quickly!

To balance the unhealthiness of all these Easter eggs and desserts I'm making during this week off uni, I spent the last couple of weeks experimenting with some (somewhat) 'healthier' recipes for snacks which I could bring to uni. My favourite so far are these granola cookies, which are like choc chip cookies, except healthier, with the addition of oats and almonds (and it only uses a small amount of oil!)- and they taste pretty good too!

Thanon Khaosan, Haymarket

2 comments

We're a bit wary after we buying coupon deal for Thanon Khaosan and then reading reviews online which were pretty terrible. Lesson learnt: read reviews before buying vouchers!

Nevertheless, we're quite excited once we arrive, as there is a big spread of desserts for take away outside, (most of which I had no idea what they were), a fancy tuk-tuk in the restaurant and quite a quirky fit out too!

Watermelon Blend $3.90

Luckily for us, we didn't encounter any mishaps during booking or through the meal, and we quite enjoyed it too- perhaps because our expectations aren't high, or maybe we're just so used to using these group buy vouchers!

The meal comes with wine, but we're not big fans so we don't take advantage of it. Instead, we're quite interested in the selection of drinks available, with several fruit blends which sound quite exciting. We end up going for the watermelon blend, for some nice cooling down on a warm day. The blended watermelon is nice and refreshing, though it tastes a tad dilute, perhaps because of the hint of lemon which we're not too fond of.

Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

4 comments

I think I've gotten a little bit too used to the whole 'going to uni whenever I felt like it' thing in the past couple of years. The regularity of my current post-grad life is kind of disturbing.

I can't tell whether I like it or not.

I wake up pretty much the same time everyday, go home at the same time, sleep, eat etc etc all at around the same time every day and every week. Kind of like in high school.
