I also did the never-done and painted my finger nails for the shoot. I bought two bottles of OPI on the way back in from Thailand last month: 'Black Onyx' and 'My Chihuahua Bites'. So I painted my short nails in the black and my long nails in the coral. (You realised a biting chihuahua was coral coloured didn't you?) Oddly my nails break evenly and so the long and short nails on each hand are identical. I'm loving having such beautiful nails, but I can't do anything practical.
I cooked, practical considerations aside. And I cooked adult food no less. I always consider a roast something that only parents make, not me. I have started eating grass-fed meat and because it is not readily available, I decided to order a bunch and pop it in the freezer. The pack I bought included two roasts. The boy isn't a slab-of-meat fan and so it is a little weird to make a roast for one. I made roast dinner with potatoes, carrot and cauliflower for tonight's dinner and tomorrow's lunch. And then left-overs will go into Thai Beef Salads for the rest of the week. A Thai dressing made from scratch. And in the spirit of trying to eat better, I also made pico de gallo for serving with refried beans, spinach and an egg for breakfast (my interpretation a huevos mexicanos). My nails are still mostly okay, but my fingertips are burning from cutting up chilli. I am so excited about food for the next few days. And, ultimately, I think it will be mostly good for me.
Who wore it better?
