And not a single sweet treat or snack has passed my lips. Nor a drop of booze, but truthfully that one’s easier as it’s not everywhere and in EVERYTHING!
I have found it harder to stick with this challenge than I thought I would, the food prep gets grinding. This week was particularly tough as I’ve had an ear infection and felt dreadful. I’ve had problems with my ears on and off for years. Grommets were fitted last year as a result and right now I’ve an infection around the grommet. So the grommets were put in to prevent infection and caused an infection. Awesome. I have a nice little pile of boxes of stuff to take.
Because of feeling like an extra in the walking dead everything this week has been really simple. Slow cooker meals, one sauce pan etc.
Like this one which is a soup made from tinned chickpeas, kidney beans, passatta, frozen spinach and dried lentils. Throw it all in a pan and come back half an hour later. I also add in paprika, cumin etc. I like spices! Also had it with soda bread I’d made earlier in the week.
Or this quinoa, chickpeas and veg all boiled together then add feta and olive oil.
Or stir fry veg and fish cooked in a frying pan with lime juice. Didn’t photograph that one.
So as you see, quick and simple then crawl back to bed. That’s where I’m going now.
Oh and my son had some delicious cake this afternoon. I was so jealous..
