After a shoddy start to December I’ve finally pulled up my cooking socks and organised.
2 big pots of soup – Done. That’s lunch sorted for the rest of the week.
Menu for the week’s dinner – Done. Even managed to pick up sensible stuff to go with letovers for Friday night dinner, despite being very tired and work had worn down my remaining nerve. Can’t go wrong with fajitas and all the trimmings (minus the tortilla, of course).
Even managed to thoroughly clean the hutch, so feeling very virtuous as I tuck into a bowl of fresh carrot soup with pesto 🙂
Only a week into December, and I’m already a bit sick of food. Not had any major blow outs but there has been a lot of grazing between meals, and a lot of drinkies…….
The idea of a pre-Christmas detox just sounds too depressing, but must do something or I’ll wake up hung-over with my arm in a bag of Doritos. If I wasn’t working the whole of the “festive” season then I’d make some time to prep meals and pre-empt the inevitable munchies, but really just can’t be arsed.
Step 1: Only drinking water at home
Step 2: Start making dinner earlier – a fed Chicken is a sensible Chicken
Working at home so had to raid the fridge for lunch. Slim pickings.
All we had left was a chunk of butternut squash, half a red onion, a few rashers of bacon and some lettuce. 20 minutes later and a dribble of vinaigrette:
Could have added the last of the stilton but I may want that later 🙂
