Life Lately :: Cooking Up a Storm with Ozeri

They say, ‘You’ll miss it when it’s gone,’ but it’s only when it’s gone that you start to rethink your ways. In this case, I’m talking about being healthy.  For the past week, I’ve been struck with a dreadful bug. I guess it was only a matter of time before it caught up with me. Kleenex, Halls Soothers, Strepsils and Ibuprofen have all been my best friends. I’m not better yet, but hopefully I’m over the worse with the help of this…
What’s the old adage? Feed a cold, starve a fever? Or is it the other way round? I don’t know, but if I’m ever in doubt… I’ll eat, and it’s fair to say, I’ve definitely been feeding this bug! 

Last week, I returned home from work to find a large parcel had been delivered. I always get giddy about post, especially parcels, because there’s always an element of surprise. It helps that I’m slightly forgetful. Inside the packaging was a brand new, bright green Ozeri frying pan. 

At the time, sore throat and lethargy had set in. I’d put it down to a very busy week at work and the stress of upcoming deadlines. However, come Saturday morning, the boy and I decided to treat ourselves to a lazy lie in and a fry up! Mmm, just what the doctor would have ordered…maybe with less fat, just maybe. 

Perfect timing for the Ozeri Green Earth Frying Pan to come into my lifeMade in Germany (aren’t all the best things?), it boasts a non-stick base which is ideal for a cook like me. Cook? Who am I kidding? No one. I’m not a great cook, I struggle with the basics. It’s hard to get excited about pans, but with this one, I did. Why? Because I cooked fried eggs! Real, edible eggs! In no time! Which didn’t stick to the pan! 

On a slightly girlier note, I was taken with the design of this pan. It’s uber stylish, wouldn’t you agree? I am a magpie for bright colours and this pan fits into my kitchen design seamlessly. Did I mention, I can now cook eggs?

In other news this week, when I’ve not been eating, I’ve been curling up in bed with a good book. You may have seen me tweet about my new-found enjoyment of children’s books. It started with The Silver Sword and has now progressed to Goodnight Mister Tom. These were set school texts that I read when I was in year 6. I’d forgotten how good it was to curl up in bed with a good book and a brew. Simply bliss

What have you been up to this week?
Do you get excited by new pans?
 
As always, much love,
