Seeing as I have just spent a lot of moolah on TV DVD boxsets over the past two weeks, I thought I’d tell you which shows have caught my fancy! I love TV shows, love watching them, but never seem to find the time to do so after work. I go out a lot, and inevitably miss so many episodes of shows that by the time I sit down to watch one, I am absolutely lost! (And not just with LOST either :P) So I find that the best thing to do is buy all of the seasons on DVD and watch them at my leisure – usually at 3AM on a Friday/Saturday night!

So far, my collection entails…

That’s my collection so far, but I am adding to it almost every other day! 😀 Will keep posting as I buy… This is an extremely fulfilling hobby, watching all of these. Some people go learn another language, or go to a cooking class. This is what I do. And I LOVE IT!

Nando’s! Friday, Dec 18 2009 

If you are anything like me, you’re getting sick of cheap fast-food burgers and greasy chips. So when I need a quick, scrumptious meal because I’m too lazy to get off my ass and make myself something, I go to Nando’s!

Nando’s restaurants are situated all around the world – 26 countries so far including good ol’ New Zealand – and the chain originated out of South Africa. The menu is made up of Mozambiquan/Portugese-style dishes, and the main focus is their specially marinated chicken. The marinades (In New Zealand anyway) are either BBQ, lemon and herb, medium peri peri, hot peri peri or extra hot peri peri (my personal fave!). The sides are anything from chips (with a peri peri salt which is deliciously addictive!) to spicy rice or marinated corn on the cob. 

The food is absolutely wonderful, great for people who love spicy food or want Halal dishes. (Halal is meat specifically killed and prepared for Muslims due to their religious beliefs) It’s not particularly cheap, but it’s not fatty, its delicious and the servings are HUGE! They also sell the sauces and marinades so that you can make your own cooking taste wonderful at home. 

Mmmm, my mouth is watering as I write this… Okay, must – keep – writing… Get food later…

The food doesn’t look like much, but the taste – oh the taste! If you go, and I’m sure you will at some point, I advise you order the Peri Peri Chips. They aren’t spicy, just scrum-diddly-umptious!
