The last couple of days have been a bit of a rush; I must be getting back into work mode (booooooooo!) flat out from riding horses to bikes to going out – but at least it’s rushing to and from things I like doing 🙂
Tomorrow will be another story. I’m editing this week and coming in to finish sending a paper you’ve had nothing to do with is bad enough on a Monday, let alone a (deadline) Tuesday! I’ll be in the office till 6pm-ish, then there’s a major council planning meeting I’ve got to go to because the outcome will be the front page story on one of our editions – and that means I’ll get home at gone 10pm and then have to write it up because we go to press at 9.45am on Wednesday – nice!
But I’m forgetting about that till tomorrow.
I might concentrate instead on fudge:
Ricki’s delicious carob fudge, which I made the other day and have been pigging on ever since. I think it’s fair to say I’m something of a carob convert 🙂
Apart from fudge-scoffing, there was scoffing of a different type at my best friend’s last night, as her husband had cooked a lovely roast dinner. A couple of nice glasses of wine also went down a treat, I believe; lovely night all round.
He made an amazing carrot and swede mash as a side dish and I really went for it on that – my mum makes a version of it but she puts it in the blender (it’s nicknamed “slop” in her house) whereas my friend’s husband just mashed it roughly. It was perhaps not quite the best thing to say when I said I preferred it rough. I meant the swede but thought as I said it, it probably wasn’t phrased quite right. And you can imagine the comments that inspired 🙂
It’s weird though that I haven’t eaten meat for dinner for ages, did last night and feel pretty rubbish today. The two facts might be completely unconnected of course but still, food for thought (sorry).
So today’s dinner was all about veg:
Much better – vegetable levels returned to normal!
Does anyone else crave vegetables this much?! It’s not even like I completely went without yesterday… just didn’t eat quite as much as my usual mountains – weird.
And congratulations to Maria, who completed the Stockholm Marathon on Saturday – brilliant achievement!
Have a great week 🙂
