    Tesco are selling thermos food flasks for 6 at the moment (usually around 12). I’ve bought one and have taken homemade soup in it this week (the microwaves at work are pretty gross with old splattered food). The soup has stayed fairly hot from 7am to 1pm.

    Morning,

    Up to 7/17 I had a bit of a relapse last week but I am determined to hit my target.

    I had homemade chicken risotto yesterday and today I have corned beef and pickle sandwich and a cuppa soup.

    Morning,

    Up to 11/17

    I had a tin of Chunky Beef and Veg soup from Asda yesterday, which I was really disappointed by, it was ok but not really pleasant.

    Today I have a tin of their Chunky Chicken and Veg soup, which is nice.

    Afternoon,

    Hope everyone had a great weekend?

    I'm up to 13/17 but won't hit my target this month as I am holiday Thursday/Friday.

    I will be doing a thread for November if anyone wishes to join?
