Day four. Nearly there now. Six more meals to go. It really hasn't been all that terrible, thanks to careful planning and a supply of garden veg but I am missing things like my morning coffee. Not the caffeine, just the flavour and the aroma. It's habit, of course.
So here's yesterday's delights.
Breakfast: porridge made with mostly water and just a little milk to start off the creamy texture with a dollop of yoghurt and home made jam.
Lunch: the second half of the ginger stir fry rice (no egg) with mixed vegetables and chicken bits (from a carcass the butcher gave me ages ago now)
Dinner: A carrot, cumin and kidney bean burger in a roll which was toasted and spread with soft cheese plus some fries made in Handy Andy. I cut them fine so it looked as if I had more than I really did. I meant to grate some carrot as well but forgot.
I didn't have room for desserts although they had been planned. Somehow yesterday's meals were all very filling.
After a damp start everything cleared up and it really was a lovely day. When I got home I saw that the growhouse had blown over (I should have tied it down on Sunday!) so I sorted that out and then did the usual evening things. Seth came round to look at some work I plan to have done so he can quote me on it. Then an early night meant that I was awake ridiculously early this morning but I did manage to doze for a while before getting up.
Today should be a full day teaching but it isn't because of my student so it's a full day observing and commenting. Then it is staff meeting.
Just a normal day really!
