Goremet- A Mexican Meal in Minutes or Maggot-Fest in Minutes?

Housewives all over the world breathed a sigh of relief when this product sprouted legs and walked into their lives... a meal in a kidney dish.....

Now I don't know whether it's me, but these images put me in mind of the remnants of an autopsy... or perhaps someones been routing in the medical waste bin for body parts and presenting them in their sterile, silver segmented compartments just for show (see picture below for the raw ingredients)....

Oh and you can put your minds at ease, the meal's already cooked for you.... Rosarita's been slaving over a hot stove all day just to bring you these authentic 'Mexican Style' meals Mmmmmmmmm! I'll pass...

Book it or Cook it- Global Adventures

Well folks, I've decided I need to take things global.... At the moment, things in the UK are pretty bleak for graduates and I feel the need to move on to expand my horizons.

It's a sad situation for some, spending 5 years at University and struggling to get a job which uses their qualifications which they've worked so hard for... but I've decided to focus on the positives of working in the food industry, by taking time out to travel next year.

My partner and I are looking into design and cookery schools in Europe at the moment and I'm also toying with the idea of going to France and tying it in with some research for my PhD proposal... who knows what could happen?

So as far as things go, I'll just keep on going. I'll keep writing, keep creating recipes for work and play and most of all keep my chin up! Things aren't that bad! Book it or Cook it turns 1 this year too, so there's plenty to celebrate (especially considering I started this blog when I was bed-ridden with Swine Flu!)

You know what they say... there's always a cloud..... (I'm not going to complete this sentence, as this rant is already full of cliches as it is!)

I mean, I'm turning 25 this year, I'm not tied to anything in this country, I'm engaged to a talented, intelligent guy the world is my oyster.... and hopefully I'll be eating lots of them too!

So if any of you have any tips/locations/culinary expeditions you think I should go on, leave me a comment, I'd really appreciate it!
