I was trapped in a room with homemade cakes this morning and in another room with boxes of filled and iced doughnuts this afternoon! But I did not have any – woo hoo. Go me!
There was a home baking sale today in the office to raise money for charity. The cakes were set up in the kitchen so I avoided the kitchen and went out and bought coffee instead. Simples, I thought. Unfortunately, I was in a 2 hour workshop from 11-1pm and 3 colleagues arrived with cakes purchased from upstairs. A challenge to resist as they were home made (my favourite) but in reality, I wasn’t offered any so I escaped.
This afternoon our boss hosted an informal get together in his office and he had bought boxes of Krispy Kreme filled and iced doughnuts to have with coffee. I am not a huge doughnut fan but I love the custard filled and chocolate covered one. Anyway, I am proud to report I resisted and just had a cuppa. It was hard though.
I did OK today. Mainly because I managed to prepare food at home this morning before going to work.
I really enjoyed it but it was not substantial enough and I was very hungry by lunch time. For lunch I had prepared a generous portion of chicken breast with celery, carrot and yellow pepper, seasoned with salt and pepper. When it came time to eat I poured the remaining half pot of olives and Feta over the top which made a very tasty and satisfying lunch. I visited an office near the Monument this afternoon. Look at how beautiful that sculpture is. It was designed by Christopher Wren (who also designed St Paul’s Cathedral) to commemorate all those who died during the Great Fire of London in 1666. I am using my iPhone as the moment for photos as my little portable camera is broken and it does not do this building justice. It has a very tall section but my colleagues were in a rush so I couldn’t hang about and take photos.
I had a bit of a snack attack this evening. I was making soup with the chicken carcass, onions, carrots, leeks and butternut squash. But while it was cooking I was hungry so I had some Cheddar and then 2 slices of toast with Smoked Salmon pate. Now the soup is ready I am not hungry! It will keep for tomorrow.
