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.

@Nuttyaboutnutella thank you, I am better, I think!

Bloodybridget Thu 02-Jan-20 22:03:31

@AwkwardSquad I saw Little Women! I did mostly enjoy it, but I know the books backwards and resented the plot changes!

Beans on toast for breakfast, forgot about lunch, had a big pasta bowl full of spicy pork and vegetable stir fry for dinner and I am about to finish off the Christmas cheese with some crackers and pickles.

Drinks were lots of tea and coffee, water and I'm going to have a glass of merlot with my cheese and crackers now.

Nuttyaboutnutella yes, we make veggie chilli, I’ll give it a try in that. Good tip about amount to use, thanks, I may have been tempted to put more than that in but it needs to complement not dominate.

Nuttyaboutnutella Mon 30-Dec-19 20:41:08

Awkward Squad do you ever make chilli? I always put a square or two in chilli, it's lovely. I imagine rosemary and sea salt would work well.

AwkwardSquad Mon 30-Dec-19 19:15:49

I tried some rosemary and sea salt dark chocolate today. Can’t recommend it. The rosemary was too strong and it tasted quite medicinal. I may try cooking with it...

Nuttyaboutnutella Mon 30-Dec-19 19:13:20

B: yoghurt bowl (yoghurt, banana, blueberries, walnuts, almonds & honey), tea.
L: jacket potato with prawn Marie rose, and salad. Water.
Tea and a small piece of chocolate cake mid afternoon (PMS, damn you!)

Going to have some chocolate soon, probably these lemon dark chocolate drop things from Hotel Chocolat. And more tea.

AwkwardSquad Mon 30-Dec-19 18:52:20

Main meals today were pretty much the same as yesterday but lunch and dinner reversed. I want something different tomorrow, I’m bored now!

Nuttyaboutnutella Mon 30-Dec-19 10:16:03

My body is thankful to be done with so much rich food over Xmas and be back in some kind of normal eating pattern!
