Maggie has been off her food these past few days, but content to sample ours or eat cooked chicken and her biscuits. We have to give her her meds with food, so this has been a bit of a concern to ensure she is eating enough to keep healthy.
Cheese and corned beef, once favourites, have had the Sniffing Tool turned up and away, so I was pleased today that having cut up some of her own dinner and added some chicken gravy, it got the seal of approval and most of which has disappeared.
Coming back from our window shopping, which sadly proved fruitless as the only shed choice available was a foot too long for the prepared gap, we stopped off in the supermarket to get something for lunch.
There wasn’t a queue for a change so I was able to go straight in, but the fresh produce aisle was a lot to be desired. The manager obviously thought so too as a lot was marked 30% off, and on close inspection you could see why.
I got the best iceberg lettuce of the bunch, and even that was brown on the outside, one of four remaining cucumbers and a pack of cherry tomatoes. I bought Hubby a lasagna TV dinner as he’s not a salad kind of guy.
They say proof of the pudding is in the eating, so our beetroot and radish duet joined prawns and the salad for my dinner today.
My meal above would be considered by Slimming World as ‘Free’ and as I only had a tablespoon of lighter than light mayo (not added in the photos), equated to half a syn.
It all went down very well, and so far, no reaction to the fresh beetroot.
Wow your lunch looks delicious!!
It was really nice. We planted some more beetroot and radishes yesterday so hoping for similar success.
Can you grow cucumbers?
I had one coming along nicely and a bloody blackbird got in the greenhouse and attacked it! Sadly we’ve lost our peppers to ants, but the sprouts, leeks, swedes, parsnips, carrots and a stray tomato plant are doing well.
That’s great!! The greenhouse is really working out well.
We’re very pleased and hope to grow a few things in it in the winter too.
That would be fabulous.
We’ve got the seeds anyway
My husband is counting down the days for his radishes – the package said 20 days from planting to harvest! Glad to hear that Maggie is eating – I’d be tempted to eat nearly anything if it has enough chicken gravy on it!!
I think that’s about right. Although we’ve only had four so far, they have been rather good!
