I didn’t even have to look at the Menu this morning – I was obviously choosing Eggs Benedict. The Other Half ordered himself a full english when the waitress came over with the coffee. He had said he was going to be good and get an Omelette. After I put two lumps of sugar in my coffee and added a generous helping of milk, I gazed out at the stormy sea and mused to myself…
This is where the trouble always starts you see…
Neither one of us likes to feel short changed. So if were staying in a gorgeous hotel on the seafront as we are today – AS IF I’m not getting Eggs Benedict and as if he wouldn’t go for the full English? 🙂 he he.
HOWEVER, on the drive home, after I’d packed that goddamn brown dress and the four other new dresses that I’d not even worn (I tried them all on for new years eve but I looked like a whale so sadly the Brown Dress came back out) we talked about what sort of foods we were going to have. Mr Meat eater actually said he WANTS to eat vegetarian food sometimes, and we decided on a good old Pea and Potato Soup for tea!
When we got home, I opened the fridge. Mozzarella, Cheddar, Haloumi, Manchego and some other bulk bought Cheeses from Costco were filling the shelves… Moderation my dear! You can still have your cake and eat it too – you just have to control your portions!
After Our Pea and Potato Soup – we had some Mince Pies – well – I had 1 and two tablespoons of double cream (WHAT it needs eating!!). We also made each other a promise – no other snackies are allowed of an evening unless you fitted in a piece of fruit first!
I had a tangerine, he had two, and after the Mince Pie (‘s for him) he had a bowl full of Walkers Sensations – I had two crisps. I’m feeling accomplished!
LETS KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!
