Ah, November

I know I know 
Terrible picture... taken with my BBcam and not with my real camara because I lost it (worry not I found it yesterday just after there were no more rolls to photograph...). 
Anyway, being back in my own kitchen is fabulous! I get to cook and bake and the best part is I get to read while I wait for things ;) Wicked Awesome, huh? 
Also, I started with Mexican Cuisine Module in school, so I am having a blast! And have already made my peace with the annoying fact that my stomach will forever burn for the next 3 months or so. 
Don't you hate when you have a sensitive stomach?! My heart loves chilli but unfortunately for me my digestive system doesn't agree... nor does my skin because it burns when I grab a chilli and then accidentally touch my face... 
But it's been a blast in school lately! Last week we made out first mole and we used a Molcajete and a Metate   Which although exhausting was loads of fun! And really cool to experience how people use to cook in Mexico back in the old days. 
Today we made a Poblano Mole and a really delicious Almond Atole with a touch of whisky (which was superb let me tell you!). 

The buns in the picture are cinnamon buns baked earlier last week, cinnamon and November love each other and who the hell am I to keep them from being together, right?

November takes over and I take control over the kitchen!

Well... my days as a hard working gal are officially over. I resigned my job a few weeks ago since I found it ever so hard to work and read and write essays for my English Literature Diploma. And though it kind of sucks leaving I kind of like the fact that I'll be cooking in my own place again. 
I'm sure going to miss the guys I worked with, after all, hanging with hilarious people all day is always a good thing. Plus, they treated me awesomely. 
Roasted leg of lamb with veggies.
Once again I bow at the awesomeness that is: Jamie Oliver... followed one of his recipes and it was a delicious success! 
Yoghurt, cilantro seeds, cumin, pepper, salt, garlic, cilantro... all go heavenly with lamb. 

Being terribly and awfully honest... 
I'm thrilled to back in my own kitchen.
