    Morning all, going to wash the bedding today as rain is forecast for the next couple of days so need to make the most of the good weather.

    Weighed myself this morning (but not reporting to consultant!) and it's a STS.  Had hoped for a small loss but hey ho another week ahead!

    Today's plan:

    B - porridge, mixed frozen fruit - HEB; S
    L - jacket potato, beans, salad - F; S
    D - albondigas (spicy pork meatballs in tomato sauce, based on a Spanish tapas), pasta - P; S; F

    HEA1 - milk
    HEA2 - parmasan (just a little)
    HEB - porridge

    Syns - may have a couple of rum & ginger beer this evening

    That is a nice looking salad bubbs.

    Glad to hear it was good news joedenise, shame you have to wait for the travel insurance to be sorted though, where are you off to?

    *hugs* to you as well beanie, hope you aren't too bruised from the fall.

    Woke up in a total funk today so I'm going to take it as easy as I can while still getting some work done.

    B - Branflakes (HEB) with skimmed milk (part HEA)
    L - Last of the LO chicken with tomatoes, cucumber, pickled onions, mixed leaves
    D - Broccoli pasta bake (1.5 HEA)
    S - Mini Eggs (8 syns)

    Hope you all have a good day

    Thanks ruby.  We're off to Gambia this time next year for our golden wedding anniversary.  We're going to the same hotel we went to about 3 years ago but just B&B this time.  We went half board last time and the evening meals were quite expensive and not very good.  Others who go there regularly told us it was cheaper to get a taxi into town where there are loads of good restaurants so that's what we're going to do this time.

    Wow, sounds lovely.  I've never been to Africa but it's on the list of places to go at some point.  I usually find with hotels that they charge a premium for food because of the convenience of them being there, so we usually go and find a local place and take our chances when we're away.

    That's good news about your health denise but really irritating about the insurance. Our next trip is planned for June but doesn't look at all hopeful at the moment.. Our insurance runs out then too. I'm wondering whether to renew yet as not sure how much travelling we'll be able to do in coming months. 

    Exciting day today. Shopping!! :smiley: I'll do my meal plan later before we go. 

    I did the swede & carrot mash yesterday so that's portioned in the freezer. Today I really should do the red cabbage. Perhaps I'll get DH on onion chopping. :smiley: 

    STS isn't bad considering other people seem to be feeding their faces and drinking every day during lockdown from what I've read. We're having a corned beef hash tonight as although ham hash is less synful it'll be a treat and there aren't many of those at the moment. 

    Today's EE plan-
    B- NAS grapefruit (F), kippers (P), HEB toast, HEA milk
    L- veggie omelette (P,S), beetroot (S)
    D- corned beef hash (P,F,S), cauli and broccoli (S)
    Syns- kippers 1.5, corned beef?

    We're the same maman, booked to go away end May to Devon for a few days, followed by travelling to Plymouth to catch the ferry to France for a month!  Don't think that's going to happen as I read on another forum I go on that France have closed their borders until 31 October!  We've also booked to go to France again for the whole of September so that doesn't sound like it'll happen either!  Our European insurance runs out end of August so still not sure what to do about that.  The other insurance is just for the one trip next year but won't cover if CV19 is still around but we're hopeful that it'll all be OK to travel by then.

    Haven't had corned beef hash for ages.  Might put that on a plan in the future.  I've planned until the end of the month but a lot is dependent on going shopping and we're trying to avoid that as much as possible.  I'm hoping that the last big shop will last at least until the end of next week with top ups from our local farm shop, which is where I've been today.  For the first time there were no queues!
