sleeping creepy.

I get really weird cravings sometimes. Like I always crave sardines and anchovies. Always. We get these chili sardines from that Casa Iberica place in Fitzroy I told you guys about a while back. Anyway, they are freaking delicious. But most of the time I find it hard to make a proper meal out of them so I just eat them out of the jar... Until now. 
Sometimes I surprise myself when I'm in the kitchen. Firstly, I've been loving capsicum at the moment. And I've found this really quick and easy way to add capsicum to pretty much any meal. Basically I just slice up one capsicum, throw it in the pan with some olive oil, cook it with Moroccan seasoning and then add that to my plate of bacon, or whatever. But then I had a light bulb moment. What if I added the sardines to the capsicum? BAM! I was so excited it was a little embarrassing. So what I did was get a big metal bowl out (does anyone else have difficulties eating an adequate salad off of a plate or out of a normal bowl? I have to resort to huge bowls that I normally mix my baking goods in), put a heap of spinach and rocket in, then cooked my capsicum with some tomato and a couple sardines all chopped up, then when that got soft and delicious I put that on top of my salad with chopped avocado...and then I fried an egg. The egg really made the whole thing. Egg yolk and sardines is like my favourite combo right now. Seriously, get on that shit. Sardines are a super food, they contain one of the highest amounts of omega-3 fatty acids and are packed with phosphorus, iron, calcium and potassium. They may be small, but size isn't everything right! ... Did I just make things weird?

I want this again. Right now.
So my grandparents are over from Perth at the moment. Which means multiple things. I am sleeping in the guest room on the fold out bed because they are taking my room. Which is cool, I slept on it last night and it wasn't too bad. But the guest room is also where my Dad's office normally is, he's moved his office into my office (my office is basically where my shoes live and that's it) so that I get the room to myself. My dad collects some cool stuff, but some of it is a little creepy. We have a lot of Native American artifacts that he collected back when we lived in the US. And so most of it is on display in a cabinet in the living room. But he has this one piece that sits in his office, and it is freaking weird. We've had it for ages and it has always creeped me out. It's a wooden carving of this warrior's face who apparently killed some people..and yeah. It stares at me. And it faces the bed. The eyes literally follow you. And I'm not the only one who thinks this, every single person who has ever seen this piece comments on how weird the eyes are. So not only do I have to sleep on this little sofa bed, but I get watched by the creepy Native American warrior, plus there's a totem pole next to the bed too. Awesome.
Yeah, I know. Weird.
Because everyone has a totem pole in their house, right?
It's my Dad's parents that are over, so food is a big deal. My Pop is Burmese and my Nana is English, but she cooks amazing curries. Anyway, I want to eat a lot of curry while they're here, but curry isn't ideal paleo material. It always has rice and homemade roti :-/ And I cannot resist homemade roti to save myself. So for the next two weeks I may blog about feeling like my insides are going to implode from all the grain/gluten invasion. I apologise in advance for this.

Now that I have pretty much nothing to do in my life anymore, I feel like I have so much time on my hands that I struggle to do simple tasks like remember to take my glutamine or put together a grocery list. Luckily today I remembered everything, I even took my Vit D tablets with my fish oil. Does anyone else feel bad ass drinking fish oil straight out of the bottle? It really isn't that gross though, unless you misjudge the swig and get a bit more than you expected... then that's not enjoyable.

I really am having paleo baking withdrawals. I want to bake the caramel pecan bars again and also make a paleo chocolate cake. Maybe I'll make the cake for my birthday. Oh yeah, it's my birthday next Wednesday. I'm turning 20. I love how much better that sounds than 19. I am done with the teen years. They were enjoyable, but I feel like I've been waiting to be 20 for a long time now. It just needs to happen. I haven't planned anything though. There's another thing that I can't do when I really have nothing else to do! I need to organise what I'm doing for my birthday, or else it'll just roll around next week and I'll end up sitting at home, eating my cake, blogging and watching Cats 101. I don't want to go to that place. I've been there before, it is not pleasant.

P.s. check out what my ab mat is being used for now... Apparently it's nice back support for when my Dad plays WOW on his computer. There are so many things wrong with that sentence I don't even know where to begin.
