Between fast food and take away

Have to start this post saying that I'm really sorry about my lack of posts here but I have a very good reason to not being around that much: I got a full-time job and I'm working in a place that I love and I'm working in my area (Online Journalism). And the classes of the Master are back this week and I'll have classes during some evenings + 2 afternoons + 1 morning. It's not that hard to figure it out how crazy the next months will be, but I'm happy and excited!

The first consequence of all those changes is that I'm almost never at home during the week, what also means that I'm not cooking at all. Even during the weekends it's being hard to find energy to go to the kitchen to cook, all I want is to relax and to have some ready-to-go (or in this case, to eat) food. But I'm sure I'll be back soon, just have to get used to the new routine.

For now, my lunch time consists basically in soups, salads, snacks, sandwiches, wraps or cakes in one of my three restaurant options: Cornucopia, Blazing Salads and Cafe Fresh. Sometimes I eat in the restaurants, sometimes I ask for the take away option and eat in the office. The food is always delicious in those places but I'm
experiencing two different things: not having proper meals for all the lunch times (which I used to have in Brazil and while I was working at home here in Dublin) and having to eat alone most of the days. But it's being great so far.

I will post some pictures of the kind of food I'm eating in my working days, they don't look amazing but the food is great! And I promise I'll have more posts for now on, starting with one about Cafe Fresh that I want to write this week.
