I hosted this month’s net meet. It coincided with my birthday which I didn’t announce beforehand (but my observant Facebook contacts read about).
10:15am Cottage cheese with rye bread + strawberries + pint of fizzy squash
|wholegrain rye bread||95||3.0||19.2|
We got a BBQ going. I provided all but the meat and fish, and had asked people to bring some drinks.
For myself, I bought fruit, veg and halloumi cheese to make kebabs. I made my beetroot and mozzarella salad plus a to-dress salad of lettuce, spinach, rocket, slivers of soft prunes, halved green grapes and small chunks of pear.
When chopping pineapple for kebabs, I realised I also had cheddar and could make one of my favourite snacks: pineapple and cheese on sticks. I photographed the plate to blog to let you know that I could have happily eaten the whole dish.
I didn’t bother documenting or counting calories. I’ll estimate 1,000 calories for lunch. (The skinny milk lolly was 94 calories.)
9pm Gin & tonic + crisps + dip + fruit
At the end of the meet, we were left with crisps, an unopened tomato dip and chocolates. I said I’d throw away the crisps and Anna asked, “what about the chocolate?” I said that Frank would eat them. Instead, having also found a bottle of Indian Tonic Water when we were clearing up later, Frank made us big gin & tonics which we sipped while watching the Daily Show and munching on the crisps and the dip. I then had the rest of the grapes and pear.
11pm Beetroot and mozzarella salad + baguette
