Day 17 is a Friday!


Normally by this time of the week I'm hankering after a good Friday night, getting home from work, leaving the shopping half put away on the kitchen floor while I search for the cork screw to welcome the weekend in! Well its been a couple of weeks now since I've done that and its not a bad feeling, I get a long Friday nights which isn't taken away in a boozy haze and a clear head on Saturday morning, I'm quite enjoying this alcohol free time... until now!!!  I'm off to my brother-in-law's 40th birthday party tonight, the old git is finally catching me up!!!
However I made a promise to my nephew I'd match him day for day in staying dry for the whole month and a promise is a promise.. so its tonic water for me and I'm not sure how I'm going to handle it... only time will tell, I am the designated driver so there's no chance of a slip up either!

Now on to my food... the Prawn and Spinach curry went down well last night, and the easy peasy cauliflower rice was a revelation... who knew it could be so simple? (check out yesterday's blog to see what I mean!)

Today for breakfast I had this...

small pieces of sausage, diced bacon, fried egg, simple but it hit the spot!

For lunch I'm going to have this lovely smoked mackerel salad, with watercress, spinach, mixed leaves, cherry tomatoes, I've made a little pot of dressing to go with it too.
4 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp white wine vinegar, 1 tsp  mustard, salt and pepper, all shaken up in a jam jar, it should be enough for the two of us (if one of us isn't too greedy!!!)

Dinner - Not sure but I promise to keep it wheat free and as much on IPD as possible...watch this space...!

Scrummy as always Julie. I am sure you'll be a good girl at the party. You have more willpower than anyone I know! xxoo
