The weekend is almost over and in our house it has been made extra special by the hot sunny weather. We have enjoyed eating alfresco, breakfast, lunch and supper; with the humour of being on holidays and ‘when’s the flight home’?
Now for many today, like ourselves, we were caught up in Fathers Day. Our 3 kids were up early scurrying around putting finishing touches to the envelopes off cards and gifts!
Hubby lay on in bed for the honorary grapefruit, but I drew the line at croissants, these were to stay firmly in the kitchen area! I hate crumbs especially in bed, yuk!
After breakfast came what seem like minutes later, snack time. Huh I had just cleared the breakfast. Out came the bits and pieces again and the noise of chewing and slurping was priceless; apple, strawberries and blueberries.
Off we went on a cycle our first long bike trip, 9 miles in total, obviously interrupted by a packed ‘picnic’ just in case our blood sugars should drop ever so slightly! This was light as I was carrying the bag! Bananas, oatcakes, World Cup crisps and water.
Home and you guessed it, before I could walk to the fridge the chorus off, “I’m hungry” rang out.
Lucky I was fully prepared and out came a rainbow off colours to be piled up high and rolled into wraps. King prawns, homemade guacamole, salad, tomatoes, peppers, etc….
2 wraps each later and large eyes were still able for the home-made Victoria sponge cake! Friends and family often comment on the fact that my kids appear bottomless pits, now my food bill makes me think I am harvesting a family of tapeworms!
Luckily lunch did the trick, and eggy bread was all they could manage before rolling into bed!
