Nightly Noms

As you may know by now, night shifts throw my blogging routine out of whack a wee bit. You get yesterdays food a day late as when I get in from work all I want to do is climb into bed! Hence this evening's blog being about the delights I had yesterday after my rather lovely weigh in...Did I mention my book is now covered in stickies? :)


Sorry, but I was rather excited about it! It was a lovely, shiney little sparkle in my long old week of work!

Anyway, onto food. After weigh in, we didn't have much time to get food sorted, so I threw together some soup, which I shall christen roast dinner soup as it contained brussels, mixed frozen veg, parsnips and potatoes. I had part roasted the potatoes and parsnips before group, so just turned the oven back on whilst I boiled up the veggies in some stock. When the parsnips and potatoes were done I just threw them in the pan with the other veggies and blitzed them. 


It was really thick, and lovely and filling. Plus I have another bowlful left over for another day at work! It certainly set me up nicely for work anyway.

With soup all nommed up it was time to head to work - just the 8 hours last night though, which was a hell of a lot better than Monday's shift! My work munchies do tend to stay quite similar, but get me.....my first break snackage wasn't a banana and an alpen light bar ;)


I know! Shocking isn't it? Snack a Jacks, one of my savoury muffins and a teeny clementine. Rather enjoyable too, and I have some in the oven right now ready for the rest of the week :)

Lunch was quite similar to yesterday, but then I am quite partial to Ryvita's with cheese, and it does make a change from leftovers.


It does look scarily like diet food though doesn't it? That's something that will have to rectified today ;)

Final break and we were back on track with an Alpen Light bar and a banana!


After that it was a mere 75 minutes until the off, and as my lovely colleague send me off 10 minutes early I was snuggled up in bed by twenty past six. Bliss.
