I finally had my rest day, and given how tired I still managed to feel I think it was the most sensible thing I’ve done all weekend!
M suggested barbecuing this evening ‘because we can’t rely on the weather staying good’. Obviously that’s true, but I must admit I don’t think cooking over charcoal in 25 degree weather is necessarily good weather! However, he’s not very interested in food so when he makes a specific request, he usually gets what he fancies – and I’ve now eaten more meat today than I’ve eaten in total over the last 3 weeks! I wonder how I’ll feel about that tomorrow… ;-)
It was a little bit of a stressful cooking experience as M is the designated ‘Lord of Fire’ in this house, and he’d been looking up ways to improve his skills on the internet… almost an hour after I stopped cooking, the thing is still blazing away giving off so much heat it could cremate a small body! I never spent so little time actually cooking a barbecue! Can you feel the heat???
So, I made today a day off the healthy lifestyle. We’ve had the barbecue and there’s some ice-cream softening in the kitchen as I type ;-) (and I’m not planning to weigh in tomorrow!!!)
And I have an episode of Modern Family waiting for me – must dash!
Breakfast: All bran with strawberries and toast with jam
Lunch: Butternut soup and a sandwich of LC, lamb’s lettuce and cucumber
Dinner: Meat feast!!! With corn on the cob, cheese and onion roasted garlic bread, and a very small salad…., were BBQ chicken, pepper and red onion skewers; very charred bison sausage; and a lamb chop marinated in balsamic vinegar and mint. M also had a burger and some pork – there’s no holding him back when meat is on the menu!!!
Snacks: Protein porridge and a pack of granola with Yoghurt cheese
And I ate a chocolate bar that I forgot to photograph. Cinnamon flavour mmmmmmmmmm
