This week I’m doing a foody special 🙂
Firstly, we had our grandkids stay over on Saturday night so we all had sausage, chips, fried eggs and beans for dinner, healthiness-0 yumminess 1
Luckily for the kids their Mum feeds them fresh fruit and veg so as grandparents we get to do the bad stuff with them 🙂
I came to the conclusion a couple of weeks ago that I need to eat more healthily, the normal diet for people up north is not the best and whilst Phil stays skinny eating pies, chips, mash, etc, it doesn’t work that way for me. So I am currently having salads for lunches and dinner, and feeling better for it. This will not do for my hubby who has a pathological detestation of all things salad-y, so on evenings when we are having dinner together he is doing his own thing. Tonight his menu consisted of steak and kidney pie, which he got from the canteen at work, mashed potato and peas. The pie looked pretty awful to me but Phil decided to pep it up with tomato puree, bovril Worcestershire sauce and gravy..
I couldn’t believe how awful it appeared!
Eventually all that got mixed together, a fair amount of salt was added to the spuds
and this was the end result
It annoys me intensely that he can eat this stuff and stay so slim, have a normal heart rate and low blood pressure, when really he should be 20 stone and in hospital. It isn’t fair at all that I have loads of salads and look like the Michelin ZX man! Sigh. 🙂
