Morning Peeps, happy happy Friday, sorry i didnt check in last night, i had a pretty harrowing day at work, so crazy upsetting stuff was kicking off and it was a tough day to get through, luckily it was Thursday so that meant dinner and the evening at my mums, and we all know theres nothing to help soothe a troubled mind like putting on a big hoodie, hood up and curl up on mums couch and watch back to back Jamie Oliver!! ahhhhh *sigh* just what i needed! followed by a good nights a sleep and i have today off! purrrrrfect!
Today the In-Laws are arriving for the wknd, Buddy has to work so i have a long list of to do’s this morning then i’m meeting the in-laws in the town where we work at 1pm to meet Buddy for lunch, i’ll bring them home after lunch, when Buddy finishes work we’re all going to my parents for dinner (this is the last time both families will be together before the wedding). Tomorrow we’ll take them a treck then hop on a ferry and over to a town over the water that has a lovely up market marina for lunch and drinks (cranberry juice for me!) and i’m cooking for us tomorrow night.
So this is me signing out now till Sunday night – try not to miss me too much!
Breakfast yesterday was a nectarine, blueberries and a fig, with apple and pear compote for dipping with a raspberry breakfast muffin.
I couldn’t picture lunch i had about 3.5 minutes for lunch so I inhaled a bag of cheesy bread bites and houmous and a handful of veg.
I went to an afternoon meeting and had these for snacking on in the break
Dinner was at my mums, new potatoes, mixed steamed veg and lamb fillets
Now time for the Not so Healthy Haul! don’t shoot me peeps!! I came across the Stateside Candy Store and thought I would order some peanut butter, this stuff tastes completely different to the stuff you buy here, its beeeeautiful!!
While I was ordering I confess I coulnd’t resist picking up some USA treats that you can’t get here to try out, Reeses peanut butter cups, dark chocolate M&M’s, Nestle Butterfinger
Peanut Butter Twix (I never even knew these existed!!)
Peanut Butter M&M’s hmmmmmm I’ve never tried any of these before, I split the PB M&M’s with my mum and dad last night, their amazing! and we had a Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup each! hmmmmmmm perfect totm cravings!! heh heh! nice timing for them to arrive!
I also bought my dad some dark treats (he's canadian - so remembers alot of the treats you cant get here from his childhood and he especially likes dark chocolate) – the dark M&M’s are for him and I got him a dark snickers and dark Peanut butter cups.
I’ll be good and ration these, i’ll cut the chocolate bars into little portions and put them in the fridge to eat every now and then, i’m pretty good at keeping things and not eating the whole lot, i just threw away a whole jar of out of date bonbons from Xmas, I actually still have some other Xmas treats in the cupboard.
I also got this guy some Lucky Charms!! (see the pure joy on his face!!) he’s mentioned them a few times over the years, they were his fave as a kid! you can’t buy them here anymore though. I saw they had them so i ordered a small 1 portion size box, incase they weren’t as good as he remembered……turns out they are! so i’ll order him a whole box next time I need PB.
I wonder if they will have USA PB and other goodies in Mexico that I can bring home from honeymoon.
So thats all sorry for the short post today and serious lack of healthy food pics! what can i say you can’t win them all!! :-)
I’m off for some PB on Toast and then to crack on with the crazy to do list!
