Today’s blog will be short and sweet, mainly because I only ate twice. Consequently there are only a few photos. It is 8pm (ish) and I am still feeling full from my very strange lunch so I am not bothering with supper.
I am not entirely sure what I had for breakfast. It was a smoothie and definitely had red berries in it and blackcurrants. But as I didn’t label it I can not be sure what else was in it. It was not at all sweet so I am quite sure it has no added sugar of any kind in it. The middle was still frozen when I ate it but the edges had thawed. It tasted OK although it looked like an erupting boil until I stirred it! I had a very busy morning with back to back meetings so was looking forward to a stroll at lunch time and a browse in the local M&S Food to choose my lunch. But it was raining, I had no coat and as I went out at peak lunch time, M&S was heaving. So it was not a pleasant experience and I was not sure what I fancied. I wasn’t trying to be good, I really wasn’t tempted today by anything sweet. I wanted to be healthy but couldn’t decide what to have. So I bought the olives and Feta. With a Pork Pie! Yes, how weird is that? I used to take a pork pie to school sometimes in a packed lunch and occasionally my Dad will serve one with pickles and salad for lunch. But I think it is many years since I had one. I actually really enjoyed it. I like the crisp and crunchy pastry and the close texture of the meat which was not gristly so I could enjoy it. This one has hardly any jelly in it, which is the bit I dislike and usually pick out but not today. What would I do with those olives? They were too salty on their own so I used a wholemeal bap to make an olive and Feta roll. I had bought a packet of 4 baps to take home but I rather enjoyed one with the olives and Feta. So I had 2 ! They were not very large but that was quite a calorific lunch so no wonder I am not hungry in the evening.
It seems strange to not eat supper in the evening but I am not hungry so I am not going to. A mug of Rooibos will do and an early night so I can finish my book. Have a good evening, y’all.
