Day 353: First afternoon off

Posted by Paola

23 Dec 2008: Working from the moment I got up. I had a caramel rice cake at 5pm. We dashed off to the shops in the late afternoon for Frank to start shopping for presents.

9pm  Vegetable puri + vegetable korma with chapati + diet Coke + After Eight mint

I didn’t know what the starter was when I’d ordered it. I had hoped the ‘puri’ was the small kind in pani puri. But it was a normal-sized fried bread.

After eating the starter (that came with a sweet mint dressing), I realised that it would normally have served as a meal.

It felt strange waiting for a main course of curry and bread, wishing I’d just had the starter but knowing I’d eat what arrived anyway.
