One day down – four to go.
First up was breakfast. Porridge, made with water and served with jam to sweeten. I did modify the purchase here. I have lots and lots of pots of home made jam, so decided to use one of those. The one I chose is a damson jam made when I had a damson tree in the old house, so at least 9 years old! So as I had only had to pay for the sugar, I allowed that, rather than buy yet more jam.
I then had a WI visit to Ightham Mote, so modified my planned lunch to a transportable one of a salad. A jacket potato with butter melted in, mixed with raw grated carrot and parsnip and some chickpeas. Not bad at all
The visit was a guided walk and after my enforced resting via illness, I found it pretty hard going and ducked out of going round the house to go home. Just as well, as I developed a migraine and had to have a lay down. Can’t show you any pictures of the gloriousness of this lovely National Trust place as I left my phone at home, so no camera.
Dinner this evening was a melange. I didn’t feel like any faffing about, so another jkt potato. I sauted an onion in some butter, added a carrot and half a parsnip, chopped small, added the potato, diced, some chopped cabbage and more chickpeas. It was not bad, and filling, which is all I needed at this point.
Drunk water all day, and had to watch as friends had lovely fresh coffee, shortbread and scones at Ightham. Well done me!
By Sunday, I am going to be very tired of chickpeas 😉
