I'm in a 'bottomless pit' mode today - just can't eat enough!

So far I've had:

2 fried eggs, tomatoes, avocado, 2 coffees
Sea bass fillets, red cabbage & salad, 2 glasses of wine
3 slices of bacon, brown sauce, on a buttered brioche bun
1 mini Magnum

I'm still hungry!

It’s the onset of cold weather River we are programmed, like all animals to put down an extra layer of Winter fat in case of lean times to come, and to keep us warm.smile
Eat up!

I've had 2 x poached eggs and wholemeal toast
1 bowl of homemade chicken & veg soup (loads of veg)
Feeling very well topped up thank you very much and hardly any thing that will add that extra layer of fat.
