Wow – haven’t done this one for a while.I suppose it’s because I have fallen into the trap of being disorganised and not planning our meals again – always annoying as it has me trip-trapping back and forth to the supermarket all week and spending too much money!
But never mind, on to bigger and better. Here’s what we’ll be eating this week, in no particular order:
Sweetcorn fritters and salad
Roast Chicken (probably sunday!)
Chicken and a potato product (again, usually either jackets, or waffles, or chips)
Macaroni and Cauliflower Cheese
This menu is heavily influenced by Gordon Ramsey’s latest book and TV show as I just bought the book after watching the series, hoping ti will make me a supercook. I suspect it won’t but there we are…
The menu is also influenced by me undertaking the 5:2 diet that people are raving about. It’s the one where you fast for 2 days per week then eat normally on the other five. The fast is not a true fast in that you can eat up to 500 calories (600 for men), so it keeps you ticking over. Having done it for about a month or so now I’ve lost just under a stone, so it fits in with me at the moment. Having said that, I did try it once a couple of months ago and flopped on it completely, but it seems to be a bit easier now. I might start blogging a bit about it as I’m going along, just as a progress record…
I first saw 5:2 on BBC Horizon, so if you want to read more about it, there is a piece on the BBC website, or you could try and find the programme on iPlayer.
