What This Week? Ready Steady Cook Challenge!


So I am broke.

I blame this blog….as you can see I like to blame others for my shortcomings (Adrian!).

But honestly, spices and all that jazz are the bane of my wallet….and apparently you need all that stuff to give your food actual taste…more fool me for thinking food actually has integral taste…I’m learning!

So I addressed my peers today in the newsroom and told them that the blog would have to be put on hold for a week due to my ‘zero’ bank balance…Now I wouldn’t like to say that the room fell totally silent…but you could pretty much hear a pin drop….and a few sobs….

Then James the genius piped up- really living up to his new name I must say-

‘No. Wait Jess! This can’t happen! I can’t let you do that….there must be something we can do…’

…..cue moody, rising to inspirational music as he stares towards the window, fingers fondling beard….

‘By God I’ve got it! A ready steady cook style challenge! We’ll all donate an ingredient and you’ll have to make something edible from them all! Damn, I really am a genius…’

….Cue sexy music as he runs his fingers though his hair, flashes a smile and does a finger gun at the camera, a twinkle in his eye….

The room whooped and nodded in agreement….

And so, this week, it’s a student style, impoverished, likely to be truly horrific, probably will result in a week off uni, Ready Steady Cook challenge…..AGH!

About Jessica Dowse

I'm an International journalist/ social commentator/ ski champion/ guitar player/ Spanish speaker/ Kung-fu expert/ninja/superstar/spaceman……in the making…. making being the key word... A bit about me: I am young, energetic and flexible in my dreaming! Jason Mraz is my religion, politics and relationship status. I believe that any problem in life can be solved with a balanced symbiosis of Elton John, Shakespeare and Billy Joel. Some may say this makes me, either very lame, or very naive… I like to think it makes me idealistic…and I think at 24, that’s still ok… I have recently finished an MA at Falmouth University in Cornwall, England in International Journalism. Now I am employed as a video journalist by CRI in Beijing. Dream job! I want to make documentaries, have adventures and travel the world. View all posts by Jessica Dowse
