French Onion Soup, Chicago, Snogging.. AND ALL THAT JAZZ!

My eating habits are all over the place – by that I mean I don’t sit down for proper meals, mostly I just graze, and make one or two proper meals. Wednesday’s offering was French Onion Soup. Can you tell I’m on a soup kick?

The cheesy croutons turned out as soggy ugly looking lumps, although the taste was pretty good. I should’ve used crunchier bread to start with. All-in-all it was definitely edible, with 1.5 large onions counting towards my 5-a-day! I think I should’ve caramelised them a bit longer for a richer taste.



And appearance-wise… let’s face it, it’s never gonna win the soup beauty pageant is it?!

I didn’t get around to fixing my bike, as my exercise plan said I should!  After Monday’s ankle escapades and the epic walk, I’ve been taking it easy. Probably too easy, but I did go for a 5km walk around central London, taking in the sights of Theatreland.

And the reason for my stroll around the West End? The highlight of the day – seeing Chicago at The Cambridge Theatre! I enjoyed it far more than I was expecting – I’ve only seen the movie, and it didn’t really do it for me. The proper performance had so much more character, and of course the musical numbers are always better live. It was more humorous than I was expecting too, and a giggle or six helps. I went with the girls from choir who I haven’t seen in a while, and it was just what I needed. A bit of socialising, a bit of shimmying down the street afterwards, and a declaration that we should all just wear lingerie all the time from now on! 😉

The girls all have exams looming and had to dash home, but I wanted to go back and take a photo of the theatre for the blog, because I’m a giant geek like that! On the way, I had myself a little late-night SNOG 😉

Haha, no, it’s not what you think…


That said, the guy who served me was rather hawt. I wouldn’t have said no! 

We had a long chat about all the new flavours and toppings they’ve introduced since I last stopped by, and I’ve honest-to-God never found a man so interested in healthy food! He kept giving me samples of things to try, all the new flavours, their new all-natural chocolate chips, the red bean paste. He said he thinks it tastes like peanut butter, so we just casually talked nut butters for a while. As you do at 11pm on Wednesday evening. 😉 He humoured me taking photos but declined to be in one himself, getting all bashful and camera shy. Aww. You’ll just have to imagine a tall, lean, slightly-emo-haired guy with a wicked smile and a passion for fro-yo. (The chances of him being straight are dwindling with each word I type, right?) Oh, and that’s the Spiced Apple yoghurt with raspberries. 😀



ANYWAY. Cold shower time.

This post gives rise to plenty of questions I could ask you guys, doesn’t it? Pick your favourite!

What’s your favourite musical/theatrical performance?

Do you ever have moments when you parade around in lingerie for the hell of it? (I do…)

What flavour fro-yo do you go for? And what toppings?

Have you ever tried red bean paste, and how would you describe it?

  1. The french onion soup looks really nice, actually! I love the taste of french onion soup, and at the end of the day, that’s what matters.

    I love frozen yogurt, snog looks amazing!

  2. The soup looks great! I love froyo. There’s a place by my house where I like to get a little bit of strawberry, a little bit of blue berry, topped with fresh strawberries, and cheesecake bites. YUM!

  3. OMG – I have to get some of that fro-yo. I’m down in London in a couple of weeks to see some friends, so I’ll have to request a visit!
    I love musicals – my favourite is probably Evita. I think I tried red bean paste in China and I liked it. I haven’t tried it since and I haven’t seen it around.

    SNOG is amazing! I *love* the graphics instore and cherish my spoon. 🙂 Haven’t seen the red bean paste – you might’ve just convinced me to stop by again!

    To be honest, I have no favourite – all of their stuff is really nice and the staff are awesome. Covent Garden is definately the best store by far. 🙂

  5. I think that soup looks delicious! I’ll have to try it…
    I’ve never had proper frozen yoghurt; will have to next time I’m up in the Big Smoke 🙂
    And my favourite musical has to be The Lion King – genius!

  6. red bean paste?? like pb? that does not sound right! i loved billy elliot! ive seen it like 1000 times~!

  7. Majorly jealous of your snog! I love frozen yogurt, but i’ve only ever been to the snog in Westfield shopping centre! I might have to nip up to this branch – frozen yogurt AND a hot guy serving it to me?! Who cares if he’s not straight 😉

  8. I’v never had fro yo, I’m jealous. I’m also jealous of the food-obsessed hottie 🙂
