Tim and I are back in London from our long trip to the States. It’s been a mad week, but we expected it: this is the week we move into our new home in the countryside!
I’m trying not to let the mania of travel and moving lure me into the temptation of crap food and meals out. Instead, I’m trying to use up some of the food we have in the house, especially the stuff in the freezer that won’t travel well. These past couple days were the first days in months I failed to take photos for my food diary, but I’ve dug my camera out of my suitcase and am back on it. In the meantime, here’s a brief summary of my food diary since getting back to London.
Monday, July 13
Got back into London. Started packing.
Breakfast: Fruit on the plane.
Lunch: Fruit and Sheep’s Milk Yogurt at Home
Dinner: Falafel (freezer) with cucumber, tomato and red onion salad
Tuesday, July 14
Packing and loading the truck.
Breakfast: Oatmeal with banana
Lunch: Chickpeas cooked with sauteed onion, garlic, stewed tomatoes and spinach. Served over penne pasta. (This was a thrown together meal that turned out quite good!)
Dinner: Baked BBQ tofu made with Veganomicon’s Backyard BBQ Sauce (more freezer fodder), served with quinoa and a big giant salad.
Wednesday, July 15
Tim moved the first load of stuff to the barn while I stayed in London for a meeting and a job interview for another teaching gig at the Open University.
Breakfast: Bircher muesli with strawberries, blueberries and banana.
Lunch: Wrap made with leftover BBQ tofu, salad, avocado and pickles. Consumed with a bottle of sparkling water outside the Cafe Nero in Victoria.
Coffee: Soy milk cappuccino and a Lotus Caramelized Biscuit at Camden Coffee House.
Dinner: Red lentil dal with spinach and peas (spinach and peas came out of the freezer), brown rice, salad. I actually managed to take a photo of this one!
