Bill of fare for Saturday, 19th April

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs and (cold) ham. Distinct lack of carbohydrates available this morning, so I whipped up some eggs. Lunch: Covent Garden Co. chicken soup, with a ham baguette. Dinner: Home-made burgers (made simply with minced beef and a pinch of salt) and potato wedges (McCain, not home-made).

Bill of fare for Wednesday, 16th April

Breakfast: P was unwell, so it was up to me to sort out A’s breakfast. I managed to grab a marmite bagel and a half, in between serving little madam. Lunch: A chicken, lettuce and tomato poppy-seeded baguette from posh bakery Paul. It was a strange feeling having to venture out to get lunch and […]

Bill of fare for Monday, 14th April

Breakfast: I don’t think I actually ate anything for breakfast. Lunch: We had some visitors from the US at work today, so we all went out for lunch at the floating restaurant H2O.

Lunch: Had some of the family round, so just a spread of various salads, ham, sausages and […]

What’s good: The ‘Learn more’ button at least doesn’t fall into the ‘Click here’ trap. ‘Nope’ is nice and conversational. […]

Bill of fare for Saturday, 12th April

Breakfast: Toast with ham. Not a million miles away from the hotel breakfasts this week, but it’s still good to be home. Lunch: Thai-spiced fishcakes from a recently refurbished pub called The Inn on the Pond. Also ate the remains of A’s ham and cheddar baguette, along with her chips and some token salad. My […]

Bill of fare for Friday, 11th April

Breakfast: Bread, ham, cheese, boiled egg, blah blah blah. Lunch: Salad including sweetcorn, tomatoes, mozzarella, butter beans, &c. Dinner: Stuck in Berlin airport, with my flight delayed by two hours (yes, British Airways, and Terminal 5-bound), so had a crappy sandwich which, I think, contained some cheese, along with some token salad to bulk it […]
