I've not long had breakfast but it was very meagre - a bit of granola and yoghurt. I'm quite well stocked with goodies but can't decide what to have and need some inspiration.

What are your eating plans for the day?

A cold meat sandwich with crisps for lunch, followed by a scone with jam. Tea will be stovies.

I’m having vegetable chilli and rice for lunch today and have filled my slow cooker with beef and veg so making stew and its bubbling away merrily,plan to have a big bowlful with some crusty bread for tea. (I’m from Yorkshire) so evening meal is tea ?.

Cottage cheese, fruit and crackers - not very inspiring (or warm on such a cold wet day) but I like it so it’ll do

Forgot to add dinner - I’m having another go with the pasta attachment for my kitchen aid and making pasta bake for dinner.

Fish, chips and garden peas---that I didn't have yesterday because of wading through the second lot of macaroni-cheese I'd made on Thursday in a large Pyrex dish grin Greedy me.

Slimfast I think
The Christmas half-stone added to the lockdown stone has proved disastrous sad

Brisket slow-cooked in a black bean stew. Plus roasted root vegetables.

Granola, blueberries, flaxseed and skimmed milk for breakfast. Cheese and crackers for lunch. We have so much cheese left from Christmas, despite having made three cheese and potato pies. Not sure what we'll have later.

I'm not sure why I put breakfast in there!

Redhead56 Sat 08-Jan-22 12:43:08

I don’t eat breakfast just gallons of tea. As it’s the weekend had bacon and tomato on toast for brunch. Having a Chinese meal tonight then homemade trifle and sparkling wine?

Had some cold chicken dhansak from last night’s takeaway earlier, about to have some porridge and fruit. Cottage pie for dinner with carrots, cauli and sprouts.

Back on a diet after a nice dinner last night. Tea and a tin of sardines for lunch. Low carb!

Josieann Sat 08-Jan-22 12:53:51

I'm cooking a salmon curry for the first time tonight.

Not sure about lunch, probably cheese and biscuits. Dinner is roast duck with roast potatoes and parsnips and cabbage, love duck.

LadyGracie Sat 08-Jan-22 13:02:32

Cheese, biscuits and a few olives for lunch. Beef rendang for dinner. Back on the Fast 800 diet.

Whitewavemark2 Sat 08-Jan-22 13:04:35

Dinner is beef and pheasant casserole, sprouts and mashed potato.

Lunch is broccoli and Stilton soup crusty bread.

Breakfast was porridge with stewed plums and blueberries.

Didn’t have breakfast before going to market so had a bowl of porridge at 1 o’ clock when I got back. Later, when I get hungry I’ll have an avocado (no dressing) and a banana. For the evening meal 80grams steak with broccoli, Brussels spouts and a small potato.

I freeze left over cheese in small portions - wouldn't serve it to
guests but it's perfectly fine to go with soup, on toast, pasta etc.

Lots of lovely eating going on today! smile

Kate1949 Sat 08-Jan-22 13:15:56

Riverwalk Thank you. We were wondering whether to freeze some. My DH says 'It goes a bit funny' but I hate waste so I think I'll freeze some.

Toast, marmalade and tea for breakfast.

Sausage sandwiches for lunch. We have DGS4 here so his choice. He ate 8 sauages.

Dinner will be teriyaki chicken and egg fried rice - quick and easy.

Ladyleftfieldlover Sat 08-Jan-22 13:20:48

Muesli, pineapple juice, marmalade toast, banana and a cup of tea for breakfast.

Toad in the hole, mash and peas for dinner.
