It’s no so easy getting back into the groove of things after our trip. A ridiculous amount of emails of which most are – thankfully – newsletters, so those are easy to delete, but still a lot left. And something you’ll find an email all of sudden in which people ask you to give a lecture… Uhhh… Me? A Lecture? Are you sure?? You have to know that by nature I am a pretty insecue person. I can hesitate endlessly about things I do. I get insecure if I see beautiful pictures of colleagues or other food bloggers. I usually than decide spontaneously that my own stuff doesn’t cut it. Not good enough.

I don’t think people really expect that of me, but I am a wimp sometimes… πŸ˜‰ But I am working on it. On that confidence thing. On that ability to be happy with what you have accomplished and with what you do. Really… I can sometimes be jealous of people that don’t seem to have a care in the world and go around whistling all day long. Not me I’m afraid. And so I say yes to things like giving a lecture and spontaneously shit my pants at the thought alone.

Because that is scary… SCARY!! (while writing this I break out in a nervous sweat) And yes, even though I’ve been giving workshops for years, this is really something completely different. A lecture is so much more serious. Or not? I haven’t really given any so don’t really know…

Visions of uninterested people that fall asleep yawning during my lecture are now rising before my eyes. But I do try and broaden my horizon and tell myself to stop whining and just do it. So… It will be a while before it has to happen. Thankfully.. I still have time to mentally prepare myself.

I used to be one of those people who really hated having to give presentations for work too and I would do whatever I could to prevent doing them. And since I was the manager of the department at the time, I did quite well in delegating that task… Lol… I know… Bad right?

Anyway, enough about my insecurities! What I do know for sure is that you’re gonna really like this salad. I used farro to go in as that was what I had on hand, but you can easily substitute it with rice, quinoa, spelt or whatever else you fancy.

For the dressing I used the very best mango vinegar from Simone’s Kitchen. Soon available!
