I don’t have a big appetite anytime these days I just ate half a small tub of marinated anchovies and two dill pickles. I will have some Greek yoghurt and honey mid afternoon. Spaghetti (small portion) with anchovies tomato and Parmesan for tea.

More of a light lunch, but half a pack of halloumi, sliced and lightly fried, plus some cut up cucumber and peppers.

Falafel with hummus and cucumber in gf pitta.

Heat never seems to affect my appetite more’s the pity. 😂

I had a lunch of scrambled egg on toast with a tomato. I'm now polishing off some dark chocolate with nuts, lovely! I think I had quite a healthy lunch. I'm having sea bass with home grown veg for supper + a glass of wine (or two).

I second JackieB up thread, Nectarines, at their best, are wonderful my favourite of all the summer fruits.

Callistemon21 Mon 08-Aug-22 14:21:45

I must get up from this sun lounger and get a couple of nectarines!

I had an omelette at 12 noon. Just had an apple with a dollop of Greek yoghurt and a teaspoon of honey. Salad and tuna tonight.

this menu does sound lovely.

I do try not to snack but a slice of buttered toast is always welcome, sometimes I lightly sprinkle rock salt on it.

unlike most of you, unfortunately my appetite has not dimmed with time.

Mine neither.
Nor due to the hot weather

DH has just made a pot of tea, so I sliced three slivers of Irish Whisky Tea Loaf, spread with butter, and cut in half. Three pieces each. DH has also polished off some Indian snacks.

tanith Mon 08-Aug-22 14:44:21

I had cheese in a crusty roll and a bowl of cherries I'm having salmon with veg and rice later.

Jaxjacky Mon 08-Aug-22 15:14:19

I x Oatibix, prunes, blueberries and raspberries for usual brunch at 12, just eaten a banana. Frittata tonight, courgette, onion, ham, new potatoes and Parmesan with cu and toms from the garden.
The weather doesn’t change what we eat, if appetites are less here someone is ill.

dahlia Mon 08-Aug-22 15:15:58

In 20 minutes, DH will make coffee and I will enjoy a scone with butter and jam. Very warm here, but so far it hasn't reduced my appetite!

SusieB50 Mon 08-Aug-22 15:23:26

Had a wedge of watermelon and the remains of a chick pea salad from last night . Maybe a cheese omelette and more salad this eve with some half baked French stick I found in the freezer last night.

Not a meal but quite delicious, I freeze grapes ( the crispy ones are best) in ice cube trays. At first they were actually to be used as ice cubes, but then I started crunching them rather than putting them in cold drinks,, delicious and cooling.

Sago Mon 08-Aug-22 18:21:57

Liquid snacks for me, a good Provençal Rose or a niceSancerre.

This sounds nice, lexis, only we don't need much cooling in Argyll – heating's still coming on for an hour twice a day.

My favoured meal in-betweenies are a slab of my own date, walnut, banana cake or a couple of chocolate biscuits.

I call them in-betweenies but they are really part of my daily nourishment. I've always eaten five or six times a day. It seems to suit my metabolism.

We have and old plastic lolly making mould where you put in water and cordial and put them in the freezer. They cost next to nothing and really cool me down.
