What are you eating today? (v4)

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

:hug: :hug: :hug: Thank you. That is such a nice thing to say.

Mum has now gone to see my sister which is sad but we ate very well. A lot of ceviche, tiradito and tartare :D . OH joined us on Tuesday and we went out for the last meal with mum. Mum and I shared a steak that I hadn't had before - a Delmonico steak. A bit like a ribeye. It was delicious. OH had a hanger steak and we shared some amazing chips, roasted cauliflower and crispy sprouts. Yesterday lunch I had a gorgeous salad which had feta, avocado, olives and chicken. Dinner was absolutely amazing at a tapas place - beef carpaccio Milanese (carpaccio with a sort of spiced crumb scattered over), a fish tartare (can't remember what fish) that was served in a big bowl and a jug of watermelon soup poured in at the table. Sounds weird but was v good! We also had a bone marrow thing (maybe it was tartare) and a very cool take on ratatouille type veg. Normally when we are away I get a bit fed up of eating out but I am loving every minute at the moment :oops:

No more than you deserve Rocky. So glad your mum's visit went well.

Last night we had a straightforward pork roast with HM sage and onion stuffing, potato wedges, barised endives and creamed swede. I love swede with pork but it is a rare thing in these parts. We had tarte au citron afterwards.

Today we had a pork and stuffing sandwich for lunch and I'll use the rest in a stir fry tonight.

Supper of long slow cooked pigs cheek a la hot sweet and sour with a mix of noodles and rice with a wrap because we have only bits and bobs of carbs.

We’ve just had an amazing few days in the lakes for my birthday and our anniversary... twice baked Lancashire cheese souffle, guinea fowl with roast garlic and smoked sausage, fillet steak and cheek with fondant potato, horseradish vinegar and roast shallot, apple tarte tatin, pearl barley risotto with truffle and pickled mushrooms, vada pav and that’s what I can remember off the top of my head! Stunning food.

Tonight we’ve had Parma ham, buffalo mozzarella, salad, tomatoes, olives and crackers. Glass of fizz with a Christmas film now.

Sounds fab OMCO.

The fab eating continues here. Yesterday lunch was a soft shell crab sushi role and a seaweed salad. For dinner I decided we needed a break from raw fish so we went to a great southern restaurant and shared fried chicken and shrimp and grits. Lunch today was (shared) falafel taco and a broccoli salad with a sort of spiced pulled beef on it. Not sure on dinner. We are currently in the room having a :cocktail: and dinner might end up being the wasabi peanuts I bought earlier.

I should add that all of this decadent eating is being interspersed with running, swimming and yoga ......

I am happy to report that I am starting to feel human again for the first time in some months. We had no idea how tired we were.

Rocky, you are an inspiration! I'm so glad you're starting to feel back to yourself.

The eating this week hasn't improved significantly enough for me to be looking forward to slimming world tomorrow :oops:
I can't remember what I've eaten really other than the mountain today...
I had a small bacon butty (1 slice if bread, 1 slice of bacon)
Lunch was biryani which we organised for the whole business as a last day treat.
More chocolate in the space of a day than I've had in the last 5 weeks altogether!
Tea has been veg and noodles with what turned out to be a tad too mug sriracha! :?

Tomorrow, I have the longest list of things to do including the majority of the Christmas shopping, all the wrapping, writing cards, buying food, tidying the house and putting everything back in place after almost 3 weeks of decorating, flooring and blinds fitting. BUT... I've had a phone call today to say my car has arrived and is ready to pick up tomorrow at 3pm so I'm so excited! I doubt I'll get any of the above done and my eating will no doubt be shocking! But I don't care, I got my car before Christmas, woohoo! (I ordered it 4 months ago!!!)

I got some very nice rolls from M&S and just had one for brunch filled with smoked bacon and fried tomato. In the mood for watching a film later, so bought some posh hazelnut milk chocolate to nibble on later. Have some chicken thighs defrosting later, which I might cook with some garlic and onions, then have with leftover sprout bake

Compared to yesterday day it has been a boring day with toast and rambled egg for him I had half a slice of toast with a smattering of white choc and some P nut butter for me. Odds and sods for lunch and a wrap of Hot sweet and sour pork and some noodles and rice for supper.

Last night we had roast stuffed goose with apples, sage etc. Goose fat now in the fridge for Xmas day.

Lunch out with friends today. I had the buttermilk chicken burger with salad.

Dinner is about to be leftover goose canapés. Probably little crostini topped with slices of goose breast, blobs of stuffing and habanero jam to spice things up a bit.

Yesterday, I had a freshly baked (from frozen) Picard mini croissant with butter (!) warm, cheese and onion quiche, warmed up leftover roast potatoes and parsnips, (v nice) cold stuffing, and cold carrots dipped in a very spicy feta dip, lots of 'posh' M&S trifle and a bit of Christmas cake :shock: I was at my mother's... When I got home, I had a morsel of rather good Stilton and a tiny bit of left over from Lille trip Monoprix Tomme de Brebis, and some Christmas cake. I hate quite a few toffees on the rather long drive back though.
So far a mince pie with cream! Back home and no Christmas leftovers (not that there were many yesterday.)
OH is having lunch at the Chiltern Firehouse, so not sure if he will want to dine tonight (but probably will!) Shall I make Zwiebelkuchen...? Or cornbread even. I have no milk though. Probably M&S BN squash rosti for dinner for me. They now officially need eating up.

Well I have to say the plaice was delish, when I looked again, I got the price wrong... one was 5p and the other 8p :shock: I grilled them with capers and dots of butter, stir fried carrots, mange tout, baby sweetcorn and red onions in roast sesame oil and gouged out the potato out of the skin then melted a bit of aged gouda in the LO skin and ate it half an hour later.

I need to check what needs using up first before I plan todays eating, from memory, I still have some moussaka and a boxing day sarnie is always popular....

Merry Christmas all, hope everyone's enjoying the festive period.

We had the usual Christmas dinner but will start with leftovers food which is the best bit for me...
I made my traditional sandwich of turkey, stuffing, sprouts, mash, gravy and mint sauce :lol: always a winner.

I made some sausage rolls - some pork and stuffing ones and some fennel and chilli.

I used the rest of the stuffing, gravy and Turkey in a white sauce with some button mushrooms and parsley. I've used some of the mix in a toastie :luv: With some chutney and used some of the mix with linguine. There's still loads left.

And I made Bombay squeak with leftover mash, roasties, sprouts and stuffing all mixed with chopped spring onion, chilli and spices. Topped with a fried egg. Really good... a new tradition in our house!

And I made a orange glazed ham.

So that's been making up that majority of food in this house. Along with the obligatory own body weight in chocolate and crisps :oops:

I need to restart slimming world really or I'll not want to go back :lol:

Happy Christmas all.

We had a most untraditional Christmas dinner as we were away but lovely. Shared a big platter of the most delicious juicy shrimp I have ever had. Then shared a churrasco steak and a scallop dish with sides of romesco brocolini and bacon sprouts :chops:

On Boxing Day we were traveling back so a snack of hummus and carrots and then nothing until dinner - shared a feta, chicken and pesto pizza and some lobster spring rolls.

Yesterday I had the usual boring workday salad and then we had a Thai yellow chicken curry with stacks of veg. As I'm still feeling holidaying I might see if I can procure a roti. Dinner is probably something with pesto...

EmWilk - lovely sounding leftovers. That is one thing I do miss going the non trad route!

You could dry fry shredded strips of duck and do pancakes with cucumber, spring onion and hoisin or plum sauce

This morning, we had a hash sort of thing with cubed ham, potatoes, onions and cherry tomatoes with eggs scrambled through and cheese at the end.

Ham, sausage rolls, crisps, chocolate, tea, coffee, biscuits and toast throughout the day :oops:

Tonight were having creamy turkey, stuffing and mushroom toastie with some spiced fruit chutney and chips.

Tomorrow, I'm out for lunch and then we're going to Ikea so tea will likely be out too. Doesn't bode well for the Saturday morning weigh in!

I've never considered the Christmas food as leftovers. My Mum always bought a large Turkey and Ham back on the days when the shops were actually shut over Christmas with the intention of the food lasting put rather large family. All the meals using the roasted Bird were planned as was the coronation Turkey O always made and the simple cold slices of meat with salad and jacket potatoes. Christmas was great. We stayed in as a family, went for walks, played games, and didn't need to hit the shops. Wonderful!

In the end I had duck with some leftover potato and leek gratin and cavolo nero
I did consider the Chinese pancake thing, or spring rolls, while I think the rolls would work, I think Peking duck (which is nothing like the dried out "crispy duck" sold in UK restaurants) needs to be cooked from the start not made from pre-cooked meat

Today, the last of the gammon with salad and jacket spud I think. Not sure about lunch, had a bit of toast for breakfast

Wednesday night was M&S (I bought a few things for Christmas but decided not to take them up north) sweet potato and butternut squash röstis, topped with feta, kale and something else and a pesto dressing.
Yesterday we had lunch out near Sevenoaks. I had a butternut squash three grain risotto with sage, followed by sticky toffee pudding with honeycomb ice cream.

Dinner was M&S ricotta stacks with a cheesy sauce and kale and mushrooms, then Christmas cake.

Today lunch out was potato and leek soup with Welch rarebit.

Lovely sounding food! Hope everyone is having a great Christmas.

We’ve also been on lots of leftovers. Also had a gorgeous jollof rice and chicken dish with scotch bonnets which was a real firecracker of a dish.

Out for tapas with friends last night and the prawns and squid were highlights.

I’ve made duck and pork rillettes today for a nye starter for everyone.

We’ve got a ham to cook in the next few days which will be the base for a number of meals from New Year’s day onwards.

Panto tomorrow with dinner at a Jamie’s Italian afterwards.

So for yesterday , breakfast was a kale, banana and orange smoothie, as my body was crying out for some healthy stuff. I missed lunch as having my nails done. Grabbed a Chinese with a friend and shared satay chicken, chow mein and Singapore fried rice .
So met my mum to do some shopping then persuaded to have a cheeky drink in a nearby bar. Much to my shame, had to dash into KFC for lunch as was feeling a bit lightheaded after the drink. Dinner will be sausage hot pot with spring greens and sprouts

I am going to start posting on here instead of sometimes remembering to drop it into CB occasionally. I can keep my eye on what I am munching ahead of trying to eat/drink more healthily.

Today was a small and very ripe banana cut up into a bowl of cornflakes', Lady Grey tea.

Lunch was a small 'knobby' end of a crusty baguette with a veggie burger and loads of sauteed mushrooms stuffed inside. I over-did the mustard!

Dinner a small jacket potato with chick pea and cauliflower korma.

Three Ferrero Rocher chocolates keep waving at me from across the room. I might have to hide them in a cupboard...

toast and Vegemite (husband bought the latter for some reason... Not had it since my Australia-orientated Virgin Megastore days)
home made sausage rolls
That's 3 I just realized. No wonder I am hungry!
I am going to suggest pizza or pasta and fresh pesto for dinner. Or takeaway curry. He's a bit off his food though.

Brekkie= fudge yoghurt (shared) a thick slice of fresh pineapple and a slightly well done cinnamon swirl

The very end of a pot of egg mayo, leaf coriander and corn chips for him at 12pm. I finished my half of the fudge yoghurt.

3.30pm snacks of onion bhaji and mint yoghurt, cheese, pate and crackers at friends

Supper= a RTC prawn and roasted tomato Tesco pot, and 1 and a half HM salmon fishcake with courgette spaghetti.

Quite a tapas style day :tu:

Yesterday morning I had half a one-slice veggie sausage sandwich.

Later on I had a few celebrations with a brew.

Then a one-slice ham and piccalilli sandwich.

We went out in the evening for new years eve eve with sister and BIL. I had scallops and black pudding to start. Main was chicken with pancetta, champagne and leek sauce, fondant potato, savoy cabbage and fancy carrots.

Today, I think I'll have mushrooms and tomatoes on toast.
Not sure about lunch.
Tea is planned to be a very uncelebratory ham, egg and chips. I'll do veg too... Maybe roasted tomatoes and green beans. Maybe sprouts

On Friday we did the quiz which meant the amazing West Indian chicken curry :chops: for dinner. Lunch yesterday was shared fish and chips - very good. I made a leek and bacon risotto to have with steaks last night. Also had some broc and sprouts.

Lunch will be out as we find it a bit grim being at home in the day as we are still boarded up and with no fridge it is too much of a faff trying to keep lunch bits cold.... As I ran 12 miles this morning I might fancy a burger. Dinner is at our friends' restaurant this evening.

Supper was gorgeous lamb chops with braised -and potato rosti. Pudding was a very very naughty maple and walnut steamed pudding

Croissant for breakfast and lunch was a baked camembert and fresh crusty bread followed by nuts and clementines

Today basically bread cheese and apples until I get to tonight's gourmandising
I tried roasting the sprouts last night, quite nice, surprised how different sprouts roasted from dry taste to those parboiled and then browned, for example in bubble. Mine were small but very dense and took less than the 40 minutes estimated from online recipes

Yesterday, we went into Manchester for breakfast. I had a veggie scrambler which was eggs, peppers, onions, cheesy potatoes and chipotle sauce. Really good.

Was full from breakfast so didn't bother with dinner. Tea was veggie lasagna with rocket salad and cheesy garlic bread. The rats had some too, they loved it. We also opened a special beer we brought back from the US to toast the new year.

No idea about today, am tempted to make shakshouka though.

Breakfast has been apple and blueberry porridge and Lady Grey.

I have finished off the last of my parsnips with some grated carrots in a homemade soup this morning, pureed in a curry spiced broth which will go with crusty bread for either lunch or dinner, depending on if my Mum takes me to Morrison's and of we end up eating there.

I may celebrate the first day of the New Year with some Polish beer given to me last night but which were not consumed. Never had Polish beer before, that I know of anyway.

Parsnip soup was snuffled for lunch. No trip to Morrison's until tomorrow so dinner will be Marmite, mushrooms and baked beans on toast. I fancy something citrus for dessert so a satsuma blow out will follow!

Yesterday sounded great when planning it out.. a nice head start at getting back on slimming world.... Did not transpire :oops:

Mushroom and tomato on toast evolved into ham too which wasn't so terrible.
OH and I shared a pav bhaji and a samosa chaat for late lunch.
We had Chinese for tea :oops:

Today, similar breakfast... cubed ham, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, parsley and a fried egg on a piece of toast.
A couple of biscuits and a cuppa mid afternoon.
Tea was noodles, loads of stir fried veg and jumbo king prawns. Very nice too.
Had a fererro rocher since then.

Back to work tomorrow and need to prep tonight as the CEO is out of the country and asked me to stand in for a couple of things. I need some serious motivation. It feels like a Sunday night before school after the 6 week holidays!
At least I've made lunch: Smokey tomato, veg and lentil soup.
And breakfast: leftover spicy noodles in a broth.
And I get to go in my new car :D

Happy New Year all!
