    Daal, chapatti and kachumber. Cup of tea.

    Sesame rye crispbreads with houmous, two boiled eggs and salad (lettuce, cucumber, tomato, peppers, carrot, radishes & beetroot). A pear and half a banana.

    I quite often eat four meals a day - never sure which thread the middle two should go in :hmm:

    A butternut and red onion dish also followed.

    As did two variations on banoffee (one of those was a tiny toddler friendly version, tbf) and a large Apple crumble.

    To feed four :thumbs:

    Edit: oh. That was meant to send yesterday :facepalm:

    Leftovers were lunch today, anyhows.

    I’m a bit fucking sick of aubergine kuku, tbh. We’ve catered for guests for 3 weeks running, and the first lot liked it so much that I’ve made it for the subsequent two weeks, and for a work pot luck in between. There’s 12-16 slices per, and that’s 4 kukus, = probably 56 slices of aubergine fucking omelette, with 3 eaten per lunch party and (Tbf) all but two eaten at the pot luck.

    My wife has also probably eaten two. And I know of two that were binned.

    That’s 42+2-9-2-2 =31 slices of aubergine omelette over 3-4 week’s. I wish that didn’t feel quite so accurate.

    Stuffed pumpkin looked better in the book, tbf.


    But cut ok.

    Also had bacon and pumpkin soup, w/ bacon and home made croutons (some dick didn’t buy a loaf they said they wanted, so I croutoned it w/ fennel, chilli and black pepper). The soup is frankly both bland and over spiced w/o the bacon / crouton topping. With them, it’s pretty lush, tho.

    I have a bucket of the stuff to get through, so this is a good thing.

    Wholewheat pasta (mix of penne & fusilli) with what was intended to be my usual spicy turkey bolognese, until I went and added some other random veg and it turned into something more like ratatouille. Turkey-touille! :thumbs:

    Second lunch was salad - black pepper smoked mackerel, brown rice, green lentils, spinach, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, feta, avocado, mint & spring onions.

    Already had rice cakes with peanut butter plus a banana but that was more a mid morning snack :hmm:

    Got a chicken leg left over from Monday's dinner (will I die...?!) plus a hard boiled egg (boiled last night - shouldn't die :D) Need to buy something to go with these 2 things. Salad bowl probably. And a roll or something. Trying to cut down on bread but not succeeding. At all.

    Lukewarm jacket potato from the canteen at work, with cheese and coleslaw. That'll teach me to pick one from the edge of the heat lamp zone :rolleyes:

    I'd completely forgotten about this! It's just the kind of thing I make all the time but for some reason it came out really well.

    I had lunch in the canteen at work and it was lentil soup, borek, aubergine potatoes tomatoes onions and pepper stew sort of thing, and salad. Lunch is free and it was quite nice. Companies in the UK should do the same.
  29. I had a tin of kidney beans with chilli flakes, salt and pepper and some sparkling water, with a banana and four haribo after.
