Some good eating recently, some bad and a reasonable amount of exercise.
The beetroot is ready.Lovely round globes.
I checked to make sure and apparently you can eat the stalks and the leaves. This one was actually a bit too big and had gone slightly woody so I decided to juice it. Well, I juiced half of it. Half a beetroot, quarter of a pineapple, basil, ginger, lemon and beetroot leaves and stalks. Stunning colour and an earthy flavour which was pleasant enough. i ate some more beetroot leaves with courgette and basil, all just picked. Stir fried with brown basmati rice, broccoli, mushrooms and red pepper . A simple and delicious lunch. This morning I made another juice for breakfast, using up some of the produce I had in the fridge; apple, lime, grapes, cucumber, carrots, cabbage and celery. Very refreshing. Salad for lunch made with 2 types of lettuce from the garden and another courgette. Harvey does very well eating vegetables. He had salad, stir fried rice and vegetables and fish fingers with ketchup. I had lots of salad and stir fried rice and veggies with pine nuts. So that was the good. Yesterday for supper I had 2 hot dogs at the tennis club BBQ and tonight I had egg mayonnaise wraps and a bag of Mini Cheddars. That was the bad. Not as disastrous as some bad eats such as the bag of sweets and ice cream I had at the cinema on Tuesday (100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window – very enjoyable).
This evening Harvey went to a party in Battle so I decided to pop over to Bexhill. I don’t think I have ever been here before. I had a fancy to see the sea as it was yet another warm and sunny evening. This is the De La Warr Pavilion ( http://www.dlwp.com ) which was built in 1935. Today it is home to an art exhibition and there is an auditorium where various shows are performed. I would like to go inside but it was closed.
Apart from the pavilion, I didn’t see anything else to commend Bexhill but I may visit again to see inside the building. Next time I will have a walk along the beach too.
