…bizarrely I lost 1.5lbs. I don’t really understand how this happened as I haven’t been very good this week at all. But HELL! I’m not complaining.
I’m going into next week with more of a plan and the comfort of being at home a bit more than I have been. I’ve planned a rough menu for the week thanks to help from some lovely people on twitter who gave me some great ideas:
Baked sweet potato falafels with tzatziki
Chicken with sumac, za’atar and lemon
Aubergine, coconut and lime dhal (from @hollowlegs blog)
Chargrilled squid with lots and lots of chilli and garlic
Butternut squash and sage risotto
Steak (from the incredible East London Steak Company – meganomz) with sweet potato wedges.
In amongst all that cooking, I have to fit in a speedboat ride down the Thames with my niece and nephews (zooooooooooooom!), a trip to the Riding House Cafe (ARGH!) and some sleep. And I must pay the kitten some attention. She woke me up by sobbing at my bedroom door at 6.20 this morning. It’s impressive how she knows to do it exactly when I’m mortally hungover. EVIL GENIUS.
