My word for this week has to be 'Meals'. It was all about food these last seven days. Elaborate home-cooked meals, easy meals and of course, Pancake Day.
The weekend was focussed on entertaining friends. There was quite an elaborate meal plan in place. We had one lot over on Friday and another came round on the Saturday. So two big meals, really. There were enough leftovers to keep us going for a couple of days into the new week.
Then there was the whole day dedicated to pancakes. I wish there were more such days dedicated to scrumptious food. Imagine a Chocolate Day, an entire guilt-free day of eating chocolate. But then others might want a Salad Day, which would be no good at all. So pancakes it is, at least for now.
The enthusiasm for extravagant meals dwindled half way through the week. The focus then shifted to simple, easy-to-cook meals. And takeaways. So when I wasn't stir-frying peppers in a saucepan, I was eating cheesy pizzas.
Which brings me to the word for next week. It has to be 'diet', surely.
