Another windy night and more trees down and more flooding. None have effected me luckily but I remain mindful of all those around, some of whom are very close by geographically, who have really suffered. Let’s all hope the flooding subsides quickly and power is restored soon to those who have been without since Christmas Eve!
I didn’t eat badly today, considering the season. For someone trying to lose weight it was not a great day but at least I packed a lot of veggies in.
Turkey, day 3! I decided to do a stir fry which at the last minute became a delicious curry.
I chopped up half the leftover turkey we have in the fridge, brown meat, white meat and stuffing remnants and set aside. I then chopped up a mountain of veggies and fried them in coconut oil; onion, carrots, red pepper, pak choi and mushrooms. I was looking through my spice cupboard and came across this. It had a dried spice mix and a sachet of sauce. I added the dried spices to the veggies. Then added the sachet of sauce, the chopped up turkey and some cooked bacon I found in the fridge and let is all simmer for 10 minutes. I had also coked some brown basmati rice. This was delicious and we all enjoyed it. A great way to use up some turkey. We spent the evening in Covent Garden, London as we had theatre tickets. We would not have gone if it were not for those due to the inclement weather and it all worked out very well. We were unsure about the reliability of the trains so went early. The trains were on time which gave us time for a pre theatre drink. I was in the mood for some cocktails and we went to a bar where Harvey was allowed (it was only 6pm) and they had a great range of Virgin Cocktails. He had the ‘Virgin Rose’ and loved it.Lara had a Pina Colada. Cheers 🙂 I had the ‘Tennessee Lemonade’ and James had a beer ! This is the view towards Waterloo Bridge with the Lyceum on the right, from our seats at Christopher’s Martini Bar. We had one drink and headed round the corner to the theatre. The Wind In The Willows was very charming. Performed by the Royal Opera House group but at The Duchess Theatre instead of the ROH. It was an enchanting combination of dancing and singing with excellent narration by Tony Robinson.
Harvey was relieved it was not very long! The rest of us really enjoyed it. Here’s hoping that is enough wind for quite some time.
