Nicer on the Outside

Damn.
I’ve come unstuck twice today and not too happy about it as I’ve had to throw stuff away.
Foodwise, I am still being careful but we indulged in a rather nice chicken, bacon and leek pie with new potatoes and mint from the garden, green beans, peas and carrots for dinner today. Maggie had some, aka most of my pastry, but I am not really using my extras until I can see which ‘weigh’ the scales are heading (sorry, couldn’t resist).
Having used the majority of my allowances, I decided to have fruit salad for afters and cut up two kiwis, one of which was a bit soft, and the other on the firm side, to go with some grapes and yoghurt.
The hard one was sour as it wasn’t ripe so I threw it away but the rest was OK.
For my final meal, I opted for an apple and some cheese, which counted as my second A option which I’m allowed as a matter of course.
I cut into the apple which looked lovely but was rotten on the inside, so that got thrown out too and I had the other one from the bowl which luckily was OK.
Maggie helped me restrict myself and got some of my carefully weighed cheese (those brown pleading eyes of hers never fail, sigh), but she’s been a good girl today so deserved a(nother) treat.
In reserve I have bananas, more grapes and nectarines.
Remember I thought about changing my name to Bacchus as in the Roman God of Wine?
Well, in Greek, the name is Dionysus, so Di for short would work wouldn’t it.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    It is so annoying when you pay for fruit and it is sour or bad inside!
    So hard to keep the weight down, but good for you to keep trying. πŸ˜€
    I have no doggo to share my treats with any more, so yeah the weight is creeping up! πŸ˜€

    The pie sounds wonderful. And nectarines are my favourite. I had one with yogurt and granola for breakfast.

    I am happy to know that you’re still sticking religiously to your diet allowance. πŸ‘πŸ‘Œ

    Cheese and apple one of my favourite snacks. Pity the apple let you down. I think Di for Dionysus sounds great. The Greek names often sounded much deeper and more mystical, anyway!
