Current obsessions – vegie burgers

I might be a little late getting on the ‘food truck’ bandwagon, but now I am on nothing can stop me.

See, my current obsession is vegie burgers, and it all started after my pursuit of the Vegie Patch van. For the last few weeks it had been at Reverse Garbage on a Tuesday, and I had made plans to meet a friend there for a study break. So the plan was in place for a lovely, sunny winters day. All was going well until we rocked up at Reverse, and no van. But we were not to be deterred! After asking, we found out it was down at Sydney Uni, and so off we went…

It was definitely worth the drive. I had the hot tip from a friend at Reverse that the zucchini burger was ‘mindblowing’. How can you go past that recommendation? Study makes the body crave carbs (so I believe 🙂 so I also ‘needed’ a serve of the sweet potato chips, and a homemade lemonade. Unfortunately most of the lemonade was lost to the slanting turf, but the small amount I tasted was great, with the classic tart flavour. And check this out for a burger:

Just thinking about this is making my mouth water… along with memories of the basil-mayo sauce on the sweet potato chips *cue Homer Simpson drooling sound*

Maybe a little expensive at nearly $20 all up, but as a treat this was totally worth it. The food, great company and inspiring, learned surroundings of Sydney Uni helped get more work done when I dragged myself home, so I definitely can’t complain! As soon as this rain clears, I plan to do it again 🙂

Current Obsessions – spikes and glitter

Day 3 of #blogjune … not finding it as hard as anticipated, I’m basically just typing whatever is in my head and today that is my current obsession, these shoes:

Purchased on sale (yes!) with the intention of getting me to the gym more (ha!) I am a little bit obsessed with these. Sneakers are not usually my thing at all (I’m definitely a Doc Martens kind of gal), but I had to have these. And like I said, cool sneakers might make me go to the gym more often. Right?

Although the whole spikes thing has been ‘trendy’ for a while, I had managed to resist up until now… I’ve been wearing spikes since before they were ‘cool’ and was expecting the fashion kids to abandon spikes for the next ‘hot’ thing… but at the moment the spike bandwagon is rolling on, now accompanied by by other 90’s favourite – glitter! Who am I to resist?!?

Anyway, comfortable and cool sneakers. Will keep you all posted about whether that equals gym success!
