Thirsty Friday

...No, not in a boozy way! I wish! I wake up feeling like I have a hangover at the moment without the drink, so definitely taking it easy this weekend. My mouth and throat are really dry from my cold, so I just can't stop drinking! Apart from that, although I'm still easily tired out, progress is being made in the recovery.

Dinner last night was IMMENSE. Having polished mine off first, as usual, I practically had to sit on my hands to stop myself tucking in to the boy's, too. I used this recipe, but added samphire, and I think it's the perfect addition.

I will firmly deny reports that I was licking leftover anchovy sauce from the blender. Firmly. My sauce was more beige than green, as specified by the recipe, but tasted good all the same.


 

We then sat and shouted at the TV for an hour while watching 'Young Apprentice'. So bad, it's immense. The hair! The attitudes! You must catch up with it if you've missed it so far. I also had a square of Lindt 90% dark chocolate, an apple and a redbush tea.

This morning we were back to that old devil, almond flour porridge, pictured before I ate it for once! And three cups of tea with almond milk.

 

Tasty, warming goodness.

Lunch was a replay from yesterday. As you've probably guessed by now, most food comes in portions for two people, and I am one person, so most meals stretch over two days. I'm perfectly happy with that. People often ask how I find time to make my lunches. The answer is simple - I chop 'em up while I'm making dinner. Saves on the washing up, too! I used to make lunch in the morning in the mistaken belief it would taste fresher. Poppycock. Get it done the night before and hit snooze.

 
 
 
 
After eating in the canteen with my friend, Wifey, we went for a good stroll around the lakes - still going easy on the exercise. Not so sunny today, so no pics. I'll wait for a better time. Usual snacks today of an apple and an orange.

Tonight I have my lovely cousin and her equally fabulous husband over for dinner. I'm doing steak and sweet potato chips with a rocket and parmesan salad, based on this recipe. An oldie but goody that always pleases.

Tomorrow is a busy one with an old friend and her daughter coming down to stay, so I won't be checking in again until Sunday. Happy weekend y'all!

Question of the day: What are your weekend plans?

We're going to hit up a food festival tomorrow and have a good old catch up.
