Theatre Land

We started the day healthily as we had a lot of sitting down and eating planned later on.  So despite the drizzle, Lara, Harvey and I took the dogs out for a longish walk first thing.  We even tackled the long hill to get a good workout in.

For breakfast I made a smoothie, with a small banana, raspberries, natural yogurt, chia seeds and 1 tbsp flax seed oil.

We planned to have a lovely lunch in London and then go to the theatre.  It was a special day out as it was Lara’s last day at home until Christmas.  We wanted lunch at the Wolseley but had left it too late to book a table and they were full so instead we went to Richoux which was also on Piccadily.  Lara had been taken there by my Dad so this was her recommendation.  It was delightfully old fashioned.

We wined on an NZ Sauvignon Blanc

and dined on an avocado and prawn cocktail.  A bit too much mayonnaise but it was good enough.

Followed by a fish pie with seasonal vegetables.

Given the choice, I would always choose to eat lunch out rather than dinner.  I am not a big fan of a huge evening meal and it always seems so decadent and such a treat to have lunch out.  Probably because I am usually so busy during the day so to relax and have a meal in the middle of the day instead of working or doing chores, is a real treat.  So I feel rather spoilt that this weekend I have had 2 lunches out!

We moved on to a patisserie on Haymarket for dessert and coffee.

I went for a strawberry gateaux with an Irish coffee and I enjoyed both very much.

We then walked through very heavy rain to the Cambridge Theatre.

Yes, having waited for ages for these tickets, we were off to see Matilda.  It was marvellous – I highly recommend it.

We are now back home, and I am supping on some red wine, trying hard but failing completely, to not be too miserable about tomorrow 😦

 

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in a small village in the beautiful Weald of Kent with my husband and 2 children. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. After all, I live in the 'Garden of England' so it seems silly to not take advantage of that. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)

    Your whole weekend looked divine. I’m sorry you are going to be without Lara until December now. Maybe the attitude to help you not be so miserable would be the more time she is away, the more time she gets to grow into the wonderful woman she is becoming. You have taught her well and the method of staying in touch in this technological world is so much more than it was 10 years ago. Let the sleeps til she is back begin.

    Oh, and my favourite meal out is also Lunch, after typical Lunch hours. I like to go out for Linner. ☺ This make sure that Dinner is always the Pauper meal it should be.

    Now to get the peppers cut up for the Warmed Spinach Salad tonight that takes about 5 minutes to make with Fresh Spinach. I love to use Spinach that is older so I can replace it with fresher for the week.

    Bob is cooking up the Organic Lamb Sausages and Mashing the Garlic Potatoes with Extra Old White Cheddar and Jalapeno Havarti shredded together.

    I already have the wine ready with Austrailian Shiraz we made in December and bottled in January.
