Today was quite a good balance between work and play. I worked from home and when I was working, I really focused and got a lot done. But I also made sure I made time to eat very well during the day and in the evening I took Harvey out to a lovely dinner at The Stag in Hastings.
I fancied a juice this morning and made a large one with the broccoli stem, fennel, beetroot, turmeric, celery, an orange and a ruby pink grapefruit.Not bad.These 2 kept me going until lunch time.I was wondering what to have for lunch and had a quick browse through social media while I pondered. A friend had posted this recipe for a guacamole salad so I made it and it was wonderful. Click here for the recipe. It is super easy and took me about 10 minutes to assemble.Guacamole salad, made with tomatoes, avocado, red onion, sweetcorn and black beans.I served it with boiled potatoes, green salad and mixed sprouts and I enjoyed every mouthful.Then these happened. I didn’t even like them much. Neither did Harvey who opened them while he sat next to me but he then walked off and left them so I ate them. I won’t buy anything like that again.I have not done anything fun with Harvey this weekend so I took him out for dinner. I happily logged off my laptop at 5:30 and after a few chores, we walked to the Old Town. I always walk along St Mary’s Terrace so I can admire the pretty houses on one side and the view on the other.I love the Old Town and the maze of twittens, alleyways and passages. Walking there and back also helped me hit my 10,000 steps target.We went to The Stag on All Saints Street because they have vegan food on the menu. On a Wednesday it’s a 100 % vegan menu but the rest of the time it’s just a few dishes added to the menu. Thursdays is Balinese. I had a half pint of pale ale; first alcohol in nearly 2 weeks. I enjoyed that.I chose the gado gado with rice and it was really good. I enjoyed every mouthful and want to go back for a vegan Wednesday. Harvey really enjoyed his meal too.Well done The Stag. Good food, very friendly and helpful staff and locals perched at the bar and a warm and cosy ambience. We will be backAlong the road a little way was this cosy looking pub, Cinque Ports, but Harvey wasn’t allowed in the bar so we walked home. So a big thumbs up to The Stag. I am enjoying living in Hastings.
