Shiny new thread, continuing from here

A diary thread for our daily meals, to record, share, glean menu inspiration and chat, but no judging each other’s food choices.

Breakfast - porridge with raspberries

Lunch - a slice of marmalade on toast, a lemon fool and some more raspberries

Dinner - butternut squash and red pepper soup with crusty tiger bread and a small piece of chocolate fudge cake with pouring cream.

Snack - nature valley peanut sandwich bar.

I have leftover soup and no fridge or freezer until next week... will it be ok to eat tomorrow or would you get rid of it? Such a shame to throw food away if it’s the latter.

Love these threads...

I've spent 6 hours on a train today then hours in a meeting so not great;

Breakfast - low fat yogurt

Lunch - fruit pot and half a ham and cheese sandwich

Dinner - M&S crayfish salad another fruit pot and a packet of crisps

4 cups of tea loads of water.

I love these threads too!

Breakfast: Sausage and marmite bagel

Lunch: Ham and coleslaw wrap

Snack: Mini peperami

Dinner: Venison burger, roast potatoes and corn on the cob

**Psychadelic I would say you don’t need a fridge for the soup and would be able to eat tomorrow.

Breakfast: two boiled eggs and half an avocado, coffee with double cream

I love these sort of threads, they appeal to my inner nosiness!

I’ve had:

Breakfast: a banana and a cup of tea

Lunch: ham and scrambled egg on a wholemeal roll

Mid afternoon: a nectarine and an apple

Dinner: steak and jacket potato with fried mushrooms and onions

I’ve just finished my dinner now so I probably won’t be hungry again today so thankfully no unhealthy snacks for a change.

I’d second that the soup should be fine, as long as it wasn’t made with meat stock and has no dairy, and you reheat it really thoroughly.

B - muesli, flaxseed, kiwi, yoghurt
L - a bit beige - selection of buffet bits and pieces
Snack - four crackers and some flaked almonds
D - a not entirely successful pak choi, courgette and tofu concoction with spring onions and a sauce of peanut butter, ginger, lime, honey and soy sauce; a small windfall apple

B: Aldi knock-off Cheerios with oat milk, satsuma
L: leftover 3-bean chilli with sweet potato, tortilla chips
D: yellow Thai curry with tofu and whatever bits of veg were rolling around the freezer, rice noodles.

Snacks: Koko dairy-free yogurt with raspberries and blueberries
A banana
Bag of "Ape" brand cheese balls
Copious mugs of tea

Thank you @Swishswish26 and @AwkwardSquad!
It was made with stock cubes and tinned coconut milk so I’ll re-heat for my tea tomorrow evening!
Would have for lunch but we’re out with friends for the day so it’s a picnic lunch.
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend and enjoys the September sun!

I was wondering where everybody went. Thanks @AwkwardSquad!

Friday was a wonky day. I felt a bit rushed during the day.

B: 3 M & S oatcakes, stick of M & S reduced fat cheese, a few slices of roast beef, and 2 prunes

L: met a friend for lunch at a diner in Manhattan. A bowl of Manhattan clam chowder to start, half of a huge mushroom and steak quesadilla with some of the salad. I packed up the other half.

S: most of an apple and peanut butter
S #2: a KIND bar

D: the rest of the quesadilla, some its salad, the rest of the apple & peanut butter, and another reduced fat cheese stick.

I’m feeling really full. I can’t wait to get some high fiber cereal in me again.

That rhubarb and vanilla jam sounds heavenly @onlyhereforthefood! Was it home made or shop bought?
I’m crossing my fingers it was shop bought from a chain and not a little farm shop so I can source some and eat piles of jam on toast with tea while I get over this cold!
I see it’s making its rounds (the cold.) Is it just me being a wimp or is this cold a particularly bad one? I’m so achey and heady and just... weak!
Pushing myself to get out and about today with the DC and friends but looking forward to fish and chips on the beach!

onlyhereforthefood Sat 21-Sep-19 12:48:59

Trying not to snack and back on Slimming World as I've gained weight over the summer and already had plenty to lose as it was.

Phycadelicsilhouette Sat 21-Sep-19 20:27:23

@onlyhereforthefood it sounds it! Sadly no trips planned to the cheddar gorge sad
@bellalou1234 the mars bar and then the re-joining of weight watchers really made me laugh grin

Didn’t end up getting fish and chips on the beach so...

Breakfast - nothing, felt too ill.

Lunch - picnic lunch of tuna sandwich on seeded bread, some graze bbq crunch, medjool dates (packed a banana but it got too squashed and black to eat sadly)

Small handful of rhubarb and custard drumstick squashies while walking

Dinner - butternut squash and red pepper soup with 2 slices of seeded bread and butter. Triangle of cheese, salami and veg quesadilla DS couldn’t Finnish.

Having a movie night with DC and have a bowl of treats. Made up of Ferraro rocher, kinder, a small flake and a couple of banana skids chews. Plus a hot chocolate with squirty cream and mini marshmallows.
