What am I up to now?

It is the beginning of December and I have lots going on. We are moving this month so that will be lots of work. I am attempting to formally diet as I have now gained, lost, and regained this year to the point that I am 30 lbs heavier than this time last year. IContinue reading “What am I up to now?”

Wonky Veg for the Win

I was in Morrison’s for my grocery shop last week. I had heard before they were doing boxes of wonky veg (the less pretty but perfect good veg that stores usually refuse to sell) but had not come across them before that day. I don’t usually shop at Morrison’s but they started selling vegan pastiesContinue reading “Wonky Veg for the Win”

What’s happening right now

Sorry I have been quiet. Feeling a bit overwhelmed lately. So much change going on for me and not enough of me to spread around. Something had to give and to be honest I think just about everything gave in the end. My exercise stopped. My studies I am just about maintaining but I haveContinue reading “What’s happening right now”

Breakfast and lunch wraps

I amContinue reading “Breakfast and lunch wraps”

Grand Union at Fenny Stratford

Fenny Stratford is now part of Bletchley which is part of Milton Keynes. Watling Street which was the old Roman road going north from London goes right through it. There is even buried remains of a Roman villa just as one drives into Fenny Stratford. Another interesting and useless bit of trivia: the village wasContinue reading “Grand Union at Fenny Stratford”

Weekly menu 10/09 – 16/09/2020

This week is going to be mostly shopping from my freezer and pantry. My plan last week went out the window a bit. I cooked for the family but did other stuff with what I had. I have found myself with lots of food leftover so we need to work through that. 1. Steamed vegetablesContinue reading “Weekly menu 10/09 – 16/09/2020”

Back to University Lunch Ideas

Emily is headed back to her last year of university and this time is commuting over an hour to classes. This means she needs fast food that is lunchbox ready and above all cheap. Let’s be honest, whether you are off to school/ work, working from home or a stay-at-home mother / house person youContinue reading “Back to University Lunch Ideas”
