No new recipe, just a huge fucking headache... OW!

I have to apologise once again for no new recipe tonight - I was all fired up to cook, and had planned to do a low-fat crab pasta. But on the way home from uni today I got a terrible migraine, and had to lie down for an hour. Honestly, I think it was mild on the scale of how these things go, but I've never had one before, so it was totally new for me, and absolutely shit. (I didn't realise it was a migraine until afterwards, when I googled it to make sure).

Thank goodness the parentals were totally understanding, and Mum whipped up some rice, some turmeric chicken drumsticks and a celery and onion omelette.

I wrote about the migraine on my other blog, and some of the things that can apparently trigger migranes are stress, physical exhaustion or certain foods. I'm not super-stressed (I probably should be, but I've learnt to block out the nagging voice in my head that says I shoud study), and I was quite exhausted today, so maybe that's it. I hope to God that it's not a result of any food I've been eating. I was thinking it could be the bacon which I've recently come back to after a six year break from all things piggy... but then I've been eating pork in small doses for the past few weeks and I've been fine. Ooh, ooh ooh! It could be those Brazillian Rechendo Coco biscuits I ate yesterday (but I hope not, because they were insaaanely delicious). DG sent them to me in a swap box, and I ate three of them in as many minutes. (Keep checking the other cooking blog, Sarah Cooks for details of the swap box, which will come once I've eaten my way through it, hehe). These Rechendo Coco things are like Oreos, but with a little Aztec man's face embossed on the side, and with coconut-flavoured filling instead of ordinary cream. Soooo good. Dame mas Rechendo Coco!

I have an economics problem set to do and a marketing presentation to work on... but I think first a cup of tea and another relaxingly hilarious episode of I'm Alan Partridge is in order.
