Hubby is 70 on Sun. In this house ,birthdays go on for days...... .Just started with a relatively low key,old habit barbecue for us.Sit tight -you'll be horrified .A few lamb cutlets (I had the smallest) ,a slice of duck breast ( no skin ,probably about 4ozs cooked weight) ,one Aldi Guinness sausage ( to die for !) and a small, low fat turkey patty. Oh -and a Med quinoa salad with fresh roasted veg and 2ozs of crumbled feta.
All in all -a MASSIVE cheat .
I feel like I have eaten at least a whole small sheep.
Meat protein at this level is a real shock after being largely veggie for a long time .
Delicious of course -but don't think I could do an Atkins any time soon.
Maybe my eating habits are slowly changing at last?
Chinese Dim Sum and cocktails tomorrow .Sigh .
Pulled pork on Sat & Spanish tapas on Sunday.
Not a cat in hell's chance of surviving unscathed .... but the test is getting back on the wagon.
Wish me luck !
