Still quiet workwise, so it’s been a day spent batch-cooking and catching up with radio shows. Very relaxing!
After the summer, which is always chaotic and hence bad for my diet, I like to spend the autumn getting properly back on plan and into routine. I usually have this absolutely down by mid-December, at which point everything gets flipped up in the air for Christmas. Such is life. As part of this, I’ve decided to carve out time once a week to batch-cook my lunches, which means I will remember to eat properly at lunchtime rather than just grabbing a bit of fruit, and hence am less likely to be tempted by high-syn snacks mid-afternoon. Today I made a big batch of Mediterranean vegetable pasta (and have only just realised that I’ve never posted the recipe for that. Will rectify soon!), which will do nicely for this week. I also made lasagne for tonight’s tea, which is enough for two nights, so I don’t have to do any cooking tomorrow. Not struggling for pasta meals at the moment!
I also caught up with a couple of Top 40 chart shows – I’m a few weeks behind at the moment – so by next week’s chart review I will have a lot to say about all the new hits of the last month or so.
