Eat

my absolute favourite board to browse on Pinterest is Eat by Su Wu aka I’m Revolting. i don’t follow many food blogs, so this is an awesome way to get food inspiration as Su has great taste – literally. i also live with a chef, so i often pretend that i don’t know how to make things so that she will and then it tastes way better than i could have made it in the first place (hope you’re not reading this, Jessica). unfortunately we will be parting ways at the end of the year and i will have to start making my own food again – so i’ll probably be consulting Eat all the time. i would of course be okay with just eating bread, cheese, cured meats and other food that doesn’t actually require cooking for the rest of my life… but everyone has to grow up some time.
