Let's start with those shall we? I haven't photographed everything, but here are some highlights...
The goats cheese and leek muffin that my Mum bought for me:
This was fantastic, I must investigate making savoury muffins other than the cheese & chive ones I make for Liam's breakfasts!
Cold coffee + Baileys + whipped cream:
I hardly ever drink alcohol so the Baileys in this had more power than the coffee - this made me sleepy! Good thing too as I drank it in the evening - wouldn't have wanted the coffee to keep me up all night!
I made butternut squash enchiladas (with Brie instead of goats cheese this time as that was what I had in):
Despite the awful photo (I can't wait to get our camera back), these were as tasty as always - Liam declared them his "favourite vegetarian meal" which I think is good praise!!
Evening snack of Total 0% yoghurt, raw honey and raspberries:
Today I have been munching on unpictured peanut butter stuffed dates (yum!) as well as lots of fresh pineapple:
After taking the children swimming, we had lunch at Costas. I had an iced praline latte and a Brie and cranberry panini. No photos. For dinner, the others had leftover enchiladas (so sad there wasn't enough left for me as well - the sacrifices I make!!!) and I had a mozzarella-pesto quorn fillet with steamed asparagus:
Not quite as good as the enchiladas, but still surprisingly tasty!
This evening I also made these:
Sweet Tooth Sweet Life's White Chocolate Oreo Cream Squares - not exactly healthy (haha!) but a super sweet treat! I decided they were a good enough excuse to open up my new (Lidl) Christmas tins too! :) Seriously though, these are delicious, but only for those with a sweet tooth. I only made them a couple of hours ago so at the moment they are a really soft fudgy consistency, but I've put them in the fridge to see if they set up any more.
I've definitely been feeling in a Christmassy mood recently. When we went to Waitrose yesterday (I drove and parked there and back, which for me is a stupidly big deal!!) I picked up a couple of magazines:
The Sparkle World one - not for me! But Christmassy food magazines - yes please! I haven't actually had time to open either of them yet, but that will change when I hit publish on this post! I'm hoping the Cook Vegetarian magazine especially will give me some ideas for what to eat on Christmas Day too.
What has been the best thing you've done this weekend? And for non-meaters/anyone with ideas, what do you usually eat on Christmas Day? I think we're going to Liam's parents for Christmas lunch, so I will probably need to take something with me, and ideally something that wont need cooking/heating up there as kitchen space is limited. At the moment I'm thinking maybe stuffed butternut squash wrapped in foil to keep it warm(ish), but any other suggestions would be great!
