Craving The Carbs

Eleven days into the pre – agrarian mindset and I must say that there have been one or two cravings! Obviously spaghetti is one of them and probably chips / fries. Also bread I must add. So, what with Johns birthday coming up on 15th January and a day off from the diet for both of us, I am planning on being a complete hog!

We’ve eaten very well mind you. Roast chicken and sautéed Savoy cabbage, lobster Thermidor with cream cheese substituting the cheese sauce, stir fried prawns and low carb vegetables last night – damn we have eaten well. But there have also been cravings for the occasional dessert I have to admit.

Yes, I think next Wednesday will be a real treat. But then again, we have a whole sea bass to bake for tonight’s dinner accompanied by garlic butter fine green beans.

I haven’t mentioned the children in a while. Well, all is well on the home front! That’s actually a lie! They are all presently screaming at each other over a game of air football that John supposedly gave me for Christmas. They are not the best at sharing! They are now also screaming at Daddy and Dadda as I have told them ‘no flapjack for dessert now’ as they are all being a bit silly. Today’s photo is a joint venture where they all helped stir today’s home made flapjack mixture. They are all now screaming Very loudly for flapjacks! No doubt I will submit. Lucky them hey!
