Day 267: Purple, not red

Posted by Paola

9am  Cheese and cabbage sandwich + tea

I got a big red (purple!) cabbage from Abel & Cole last week. I chopped some to use in salads and cooked the rest with vinegar, apple and spices. I used the raw cabbage as my substitute for lettuce in this sandwich.

I was gonna have an orange afterwards but put it back as I did feel full already.

Afternoon drink: pint of fizzy squash

2:30pm  Tomato, carrot and apple soup with beans and Finn Crisp + prunes

I took all the small broken bits of the Finn Crisp, ending up with a bit more than I’d have measured out. The bits ended up a little over what two whole Finn Crisps would have been.
