Day 237: A bag o’ tomatoes

Posted by Paola

2pm  Courgettes and mushroom with cottage cheese + plum + pint of fizzy squash

I knew I was going to be out in the afternoon and didn’t have any bread but had twice the amount of cottage cheese (200g) I’d usually have.

8 months into my diet

At Matthew Cashmore’s leaving do for his Journey to Russia.

I had a white bread roll with a slice of Gouda cheese, some salad veg and a spoon of Matt’s wonderful potato salad (ah, REAL mayonnaise).

I then had half a thin piece of cake and a little champagne.

However, I felt like eating a lot more. I wanted a second cheese salad roll and a big slice of cake.

After the guys left and people were clearing up, I overheard Matt’s wife say she didn’t know what to do with all the salad that was left over. I don’t think she remembered me from a year ago when I last met her but I tentatively asked if I could help off-load some by taking it home. She said I could have it all.

I separated it out when I got home.

I have a lot of tomatoes! I will likely make a tomato and bean soup. I’m wondering if baking them first (without oil) will make them taste better.

8:10pm  Croissant + tea @ Ikea

Not actually hungry but felt like eating. :-/ Frank had fish, chips and peas and a big almond croissant he left behind.

  1. Roasted tomatoes are fantastic in soup and pasta sauces. I have been slow roasting them, or cooking them on high heat on the griddle by spraying a very very minute amount of oil mixed with water. You can stuff a piece of garlic in the middle of the tomato if you are roasting for added flavour and sprinkle with some oregano… or some fresh basil. Then, you can freeze them too.
