Driving me crazy

I’ve been cooking sooo much this week (when I’m typing this, it’s Sunday the 10th of April), I wish I had more time! but unfortunately I’ll have to go back to school the upcoming week. It sort of feels like my life is over, uhoh! Nah, it’s not that dramatic. But I’ll definitely miss being able to give in to my cravings of baking cookies/healthy pies/soy bean snacks or whatever else I wanted, whenever I wanted…. That’s one thing I’m sure of.

But hey, it’s good to get back to normal! I haven’t been lazy at all this past year even though I was supposed to take my time and focus on my anxiety. I actually did quite a lot, learned a lot, wrote a lot and worked a lot in the first 8 months of my gap year. But it feels like I have to get back to studying, as that’s what I’m supposed to do.

Does that make sense?

To be reaaaaal honest with you guys: sometimes I’d rather quit my education altogether. Sometimes I get carried away, dream about becoming a full time waitress and blog writer and I feel like it could actually be possible. Crazy, right?! But school has brought me in such a bad way, I developed an anxiety disorder I mean come on 😛 Waitressing is what I’ve always loved, even though people always think it’s a horrible job.

And I’m crazy about this blog. I only started 3 months ago and am not successful at all, but sometimes I wonder. Hey, a girl can dream!

Stir fry

Mmmmkay, I’ll leave my mumbling for later and focus on the recipe for now 😉

  1. Runner beans, 500g
  2. Mushrooms, 250g
  3. Spring onions, 2 pieces
  4. Pork fillets, 200g
  5. Sweet chilli sauce
  6. Salt and pepper
  1. Start by cutting the beans into pieces of around 5 cm. Cook them in a pan with hot water for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, chop up the spring onions and mushrooms and toss these in a frying pan with some oil. Cook on medium heat.
  3. Add the cooked beans.
  4. Season the pork with salt and pepper and cut into smaller pieces of 4x4 cm. Add to the vegetables in the pan.
  5. Cook all of this until the pork is done, which will take you around 4 minutes. Add the sweet chilli sauce (I used about 6 spoonfuls) and serve!
  1. This would also be delicious with some brown rice.

  1. Dreams can come true and go after what you really want 🙂 personally, an education is great but it’s honestly just getting a piece of paper saying ‘yay you did it!’ – I feel like people have the talent and skills without that paper saying so. Anyway, keep on going with the blog and your aspirations 🙂 love this stir fry and the flavors!

    1. Your comment really made me think: maybe that’s sort of what I needed to hear! I would like to finish my education though, it would be such a waste of 3 years of my time…. But yes, you are totally right! Thanks for helping me clear my mind 🙂

    1. Thank you! I so agree with you, you don’t even notice it’s 80% veggies you’re eating!
      You are so sweet, that is so nice to hear! Seriously, that makes my whole day 10 times better 😀 (I’m currently at school, ya feel me)
      I’m so happy to have you over at my blog and to read your comments! XOXO

  2. I was a waitress for 3 years in college, and I didn’t mind it. I was actually really good at it and made great money, so you won’t hear me knocking it! But I also loved school… so? Anyways, Stir Frys (or is it stir fries?) are the best – because YES to using up all the leftovers in such a yummy way! And this stir fry looks delicious! So much goodness in one place! Cheers, dear!

    1. I love it too! Maybe because I’m good at it, but I get so much satisfaction from being able to pull of working at e.g. a really busy night.
      Yes yes yes exactly! No more wasting of veggies 🙂
      Thanks Cheyanne!

  3. Girl, keep on dreaming! I know we all have big dreams, whether it’s for a blog, a career in fashion or something else. Don’t give up! If you don’t allow yourself to have dreams and pursue them, then what’s the point, really? 🙂 Also, I hope your anxieties are going better. Make sure to take some time for yourself to rest. Keep up the good work. Loving the photos in this post. 🙂 Good luck, Viv!

    1. I should, right? I mean without dreams we do not achieve anything in life! And even if I don’t “make it” I still love blogging, so I won’t give up just yet 🙂

      You are too kind, I will make sure to rest! Thanks for stopping by demeter! xoxo

  4. I get you-college can be so stressful at times and it’s like we’re expected to know right away what we want to do, which is so hard to just figure out sometimes. Anyways, keep up the blogging and the photos! Love the healthy recipes 🙂

    1. Exactly Joleen, I mean I can’t even decide what I want for dinner yet!
      Thank you so much, I love hearing that 😀

  5. This looks really awesome! And I know what you mean… sometimes I get discouraged that I have a full-time job and then also want to try to make a great blog, because there are so many bloggers out there who have the luxury of just staying at home and focusing on blogging… I get envious of that. But we can do it!! Especially bc blogging is a beloved hobby and doesn’t feel like stressful “work.” Anyway, good luck!!

    1. Ohhh yes, and then something doesn’t turn out as great as you want it too and uggh.. Frustration! Exactly, let’s stay motivated!

  6. I was a waitress for about 3 months and was horrible at it — such a tough job! Although, the restaurant I worked at was pretty bad, so that might have had something to do with it 🙂 I so want to get on the stir fry train – this recipe looks so easy and delicious!

    1. Oops! The first restaurant I worked at was pretty terrible too, so yes I’m sure that must’ve been it. I can totally relate!
