LBLUK – Day 4, nearly there now, but I am still craving a cup of tea
Breakfast was again plain pancakes with jam and a spot of soft cheese.
2 of the little scones, with more jam during the morning.
Then 2 bowls of soup with lentils, cabbage and bacon. The bacon provided a lovely saltiness and flavour.
The dinner this evening was a huge scone based pizza. I made a scone mix using 250g flour, dividing it into two, with the second half for lunch tomorrow.
One of the little pots of tomato in the fridge was shared between the two, along with half of the solitary remaining onion and a tiny bit of carrot. Then a few little bits of soft cheese, and I pinched a few slivers of bacon from tomorrow.
It was pretty tasty considering I didn’t reduce the tomato to make a sauce, or have any seasonings. So looking forward to that at lunchtime tomorrow.
Still really longing for a cup of tea and a huge mug of coffee.
At DD2’s tomorrow, and we could have gone out for a nice lunch somewhere, but I need to do Day 5 – grump 🙁
Having worked out the nutrition, I know there are enough vegetables, fibre etc in the basket, but it feels like I have been eating far too much white flour and jam this week. Looking forward to some variety in a few days.
