Ah, lunch, the midway meal, filling the hole from breakfast and charging you up for the day ahead. Here's what I get:
The salad, this gets eaten every day, all pretty fresh, green leaves carrots, cucumber. No dressing, just a squeeze of lemon. There's always some form of beans or pulses in there too.
Pots contain meatballs in a bit of a greasy sauce, tiny chocolate éclair, corn soup, curried okra. The soup goes down the hatch, the desert and okra in the bin, always. The meatballs aren't too bad tasting but quite greasy so I'll have a couple of them because they taste different from the chicken.
The chicken, the staple dish of the year, makes an appearance in every meal bar breakfast. Usually roasted so not too bad, just a bit bland. This one has an incinerated bit of onion skin on it, probably in an attempt to give it a bit of French flair!
The rice and spuds I will leave, preferring to get my calories from elsewhere. but I hoover up any and all veggies on the plate, which today is cabbage and carrot.
The full cream yoghurt and coke will go in the fridge, someone else will eat them later. I'll have a couple of bottles of water with lunch.
Only dinner to go, oh, and the midnight snack box!
