    Lol I love the way we plan snacks for watching the cookery programmes. They really do stimulate the appetite. :)

    B - 3 pork sausage & fat bomb
    L- 2 sausage, 1 bacon, grated cheddar & lettuce (best I could get from the canteen :banghead:)
    D - Halloumi & spinach with parmesan. Also pinched a piece of spicy breaded chicken from my son :p
    S - a handful of macadamia nuts & a fat bomb.

    Truth be told, I don't much like the fat bombs I made and I'll be glad to see the back of them. They need more spice, or heat, or something when I make another batch.

    B: 3-egg frittata with mushrooms, tomatoes & bacon all chopped up
    L: "Everything from the salad drawer" salad with cheese, home-pickled beetroot and home-made dressing. Weekday lunches have to be portable to go to Mrs DeeJayR in her shop
    D: Salmon poached in spiced tomato, ginger & coconut milk with steamed celeriac, broad beans & broccoli
    I don't regard all this as a diet. It's just interesting food, and what I used to eat may have been more convenient but it was so BORING :D
