Bill of fare for Wednesday, 26th March

Breakfast:

Croissant with Seville orange marmalade. Green tea.

Lunch:

Demae ramen noodles (sesame flavour) with some pork luncheon meat. Bad, so very bad.

Dinner:

Tacos. The crispy type, not the lovely soft stuff I first tasted in San Francisco last year.

Bill of fare for Tuesday, 25th March

Breakfast:

Two slices of toast with saucisson a l’ail. A, the adventurous little girl that she is, decided she also wanted to try some saucisson.

Lunch:

Beef sandwich, using the leftovers from last week, with mustard and mayonnaise. A few of those new Pringles rice jobbies on the side. Oh, also nicked some of A’s Marmite sandwich. I haven’t eaten Marmite on anything other than toast for aeons.

Dinner:

A lovely chorizo risotto made by P. Followed by a more successful attempt at popcorn. (Last night’s was a bit on the burnt side.)

Bill of fare for Monday, 24th March

Breakfast:

Since today was a Bank Holiday, and nobody was under any time constraints, P cooked up some bacon and scrambled eggs, which we had on toast.

Lunch:

A Very Bad Lunch: a 4 piece variety bucket from KFC, shared between me and P. Excuse: the selection in M&S was uninspiring and it was a cold day, so a hot meal was required; since we have no microwave, a ready meal from M&S would have taken at least 35 minutes, and that’s not even including pre-heating the oven.

Dinner:

P made quesadillas filled with smoked salmon and cream cheese, served with some potato wedges and salsa. I followed it up with some freshly popped popcorn, sprinkled with some caster sugar.

Bill of fare for Sunday, 23rd March

Another slightly odd day, due to having people round for lunch.

Breakfast:

Hot cross bun, washed down with English Breakfast tea

Lunch:

Selection of stuff including cocktail sausages, leek tart, focaccia, humous, chicken drumsticks, potato salad; finished off with some lemon cheesecake. All bought at M&S (by P).

Dinner:

Still full from lunch, and needing to get something quick to eat before Lost came on, I ended up with a small bowl of Japanese rice crackers. Dessert was a mini bag of Cadbury’s Mini Eggs (obtained during the office Easter Egg hunt on Thursday). So, so bad.

Bill of fare for Saturday, 22nd March

Breakfast:

Hot cross bun + green tea.

Lunch:

Met up with a friend from work for dim sum at Wing Yip. Amongst the food consumed: har kau (prawn dumplings), paper-wrapped prawns, beef cheung fun, fried dough stick cheung fun, mixed meats with crispy fried noodles, turnip paste with dried meats (A’s favourite), and loads of other things I can’t remember.

Dinner:

Since dim sum is always so filling (or we always order too much), we never really bother with dinner. Having said that, we were peckish enough to make some tuna mayonnaise and sweetcorn baguettes to munch on during Grand Designs revisited.
