What I Ate Wednesday is a blog link-up hosted over at Peas & Crayons, encouraging bloggers to post pictures of what they ate over a whole day. Hopefully taking part will show you guys whether or not I stick to the mealplan and give a bit more insight into what I can eat on my budget.
Was off work with the bank holiday on Monday so my eats were a wee bit different than normal – I tend to eat at different times and maybe snack a bit more than normal on days off.
10am – Breakfast
Summer fruit and banana milkshake made with half a pint of whole milk, a banana and 80g frozen mixed summer fruits. Bonus peek of a furry face in this picture too 😉
2.00pm – Lunch
Small bowl of homemade lentil & coconut soup (made with red lentils, onion, carrots, coconut milk, homemade chicken stock, ghee, garlic, frozen spinach and Madras curry powder) served with cream crackers, butter and mature cheddar.
Accompanied by a bottle of apple juice (Dave had lunch out and brought me the apple juice from his meal deal, awww)
5.00pm – Snack
Cup of Brewhaha rose tea* with a homemade chocolate “hobnob”-type biscuit (self-raising flour, oats, sugar, baking fat, maple syrup, baking powder, topped with plain chocolate)
7.30pm – Dinner
Slightly random but oddly delicious dinner tonight:
- peppered smoked mackerel
- homemade coleslaw (red cabbage, carrot, mayonnaise)
- cooked asparagus
- and sticky short-grain rice
*Disclaimer: the rose tea was not a freebie (sadly) and I just mentioned it cos I like it a lot (well, it was a gift, but not from Brewhaha, they don’t know who I am!). I wouldn’t object if anyone does want to send me free rose tea though… 😉
