I’m glad Tuesday’s over.
It was a bit of a mission, to say the least. But as I took pictures of What I Ate on it, I’m going to join the party!
Breakfast was a (very minor) variation on my current (very major) obsession:
I enjoyed the combination of ground almonds and raspberries so much in Sunday’s pancakes, I added a tablespoon of one to a bowl of the other today. Such a great combination, with strawberry yoghurt, a sprinkle of granola and the obligatory pink swirl.
It was late by the time I had lunch but it was worth waiting for; something I haven’t had for years, literally:
A proper sandwich!
I never use bought GF bread for sandwiches because a) I’d be bankrupt and b) I never believe it’s going to be much good untoasted. But I knew it was going to be a long afternoon/evening and I thought the multiseed Genius bread I got at the GF show would be more filling than my usual lunch.
I filled it with ham, my dad’s lettuce, a bit of mayonnaise and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast – and it was amazing! Even though the bread had been frozen, it thawed perfectly – amaaaazing texture and delicious taste – the best sandwich I’ve had for years.
And it’s lucky it was so filling. In a nutshell, there were only two of us in yesterday, on deadline, and Mike had to go to a public meeting all afternoon and then write it up while I wrote and sent everything else.
Then we both had to go to the second half of the meeting, which started at 7pm and finished at about 10pm, 45 minutes’ drive away 😦
It wasn’t the best fun I’ve ever had, especially after a mad day! But at least, apart from a couple of stomach rumbles at about 8pm, I wasn’t hungry at all, probably helped by this:
My mum had never seen Nakd bars before but when she spotted them the other day, bless her, she bought me a box of these 🙂 Chocolate + filling + healthy = perfect.
I got home at about 11pm, having had an apple on the way, and was going to go straight to bed… but was struck by what I really wanted:
I hadn’t had banana porridge for ages and this was amazing! Quickly made, quickly eaten and although going to bed on a stomach full of oats might not be the best idea ever, I slept like a baby – until 6am today anyway 🙂
I love my job but am starting to see what the benefits of not working could be… my office lottery syndicate has entered the Euromillions draw this weekend because it’s such a ridiculously huge jackpot – even with 18 of us, we’d still win almost £10m each…
It sounds ridiculous but I think that’s far too much money for anyone; it would scare me! Does anyone else think that?? Not, of course, that I’d turn it down… 🙂
Have you got your WIAW on yet? If not, go and join the party, thanks Jen!
