Writing 101 – Day Five


Made it to-day 5…pleasantly surprised with myself:)

Today’s assignment: ‘Be brief’ –  You stumble upon a random letter on the path. You read it. It affects you deeply, and you wish it could be returned to the person to which it’s addressed. Write a story about this encounter.

Today’s twist: Approach this post in as few words as possible.

” I wish I could have been there for you…to hold your hand and to say that everything will be all right.

I can’t imagine the pain you must be going through right now, but I only have these words to try to ease your broken heart…You might think it will never go away but you’re wrong.

Time will heal your heart and not because you will forget, but because you’ll be able to forgive… and forgiveness will set you free.

As always I’ll be next to you in your thoughts, giving you the strength to carry on…as long as you need me I am forever yours… “

… luckily there was a return address

Dear X,

I feel like I have to answer your letter as you might have never known that your words of comfort never reached the person there were destined for. I must say that whatever happened, no matter how painful it must have been, your message was a sweet attempt of consolation. I hope that time did heal a soul and this venture of mine finds you both in better place.

Thank you for somehow reminding me that forgiveness has great power over us.

Yours truly,

Y

‘Late evening delight’


I was thinking what should I post this week under amazing recipes…so I think it’s time to take a break from delicious desserts and delight ourselves with more savoury bits:)

Healthy stir fry

Ingredients: 400 g egg noodles, half red pepper, 1/4 onion, spinach, 1 grated carrot, 200 g baby corn, 250 g chicken breast, 100 g curly kale…and any other veggie you love:))), salt and pepper, soy sauce.

Method: I usually cut everything very nice and fine, the chicken breast you can cut it in cubes and add salt and pepper, place them into a plastic bowl and pour a bit of soy sauce on them – leave it for 10 minutes before you add everything into a hot pan.

First I put the chicken into a hot pan with a bit of vegetable oil, fry it for about 5 minutes, then add all the cut up veggies, if needed for taste add salt and pepper again but do not forget the chicken already was flavoured.

Stir fry everything for about 10 minutes, than you are ready to add the noodles…now I’ve cheated a little bit this time and bought ready-made egg noodles:), you can make your own or buy some, either way they will taste really good!

Toss and turn everything in the pan for about 5 more minutes, for all the flavours to come together…and you’re done!

If you never try this before, I would definitely advise you to cook it!

For me it’s very easy to do, it’s healthy and it tastes so so good:)

Bon appetite, enjoy:)
