July 27th Wednesday - Dinner

Firstly an apology for Monday and Tuesday pics...

Monday turned into a day of 2 sandwiches and 3 bags of Minstrels. All day. Oops and no pics..

Tuesday was my anniversary.. 31 years! Yay me & Bob!   So no dinner, but posh lunch at L'Autre Pied in the West End. I have a thing about photographing meals in restaurants (yes, I know lots of people do, I just feel too embarrassed to fiddle about with my camera, and anyway I want to get on with eating! )

So lunch was marinated pollock, followed by Middle White pork belly, finished with macerated strawberries with raspberry sorbet & sesame tuiles. But no photos.

Wednesday dinner was the highly smelly but delicious chargriddled Sardines with salad & new potatoes in Tartare dressing

What is all this about?

 This is an aide memoire for me on my continuing fight with losing weight.

I have a terrible memory, so thought it might be helpful if I keep tabs of what I am eating in photo form.

Some things may have recipes attached to my Greedy Piglet blog  but if not, and you would like to see a recipe, then just shout and I'll see what I can do.. but don't leave it too long or I might not be able to remember what I did!
