Lunch – Sliced Turkey with Baby Leaf Salad and Cranberry Sauce in a Wrap.
This was beautiful, lovely and fresh, the cranberry sauce very zingy and flavourful, the turkey excellent, the rocket peppery. It was a lot of food though!
Snacks – Green Apple – Fruit Bun – Mandarin
Obviously this is not a green apple – I swapped it for one of the Royal Gala apples I bought. Not a big fan of green apples.
If I’d been at home, I would have had these two snacks separately, probably an hour or more apart. While at work you only get 2x 10 minute breaks (in a 6 hour shift) so I made these at the same time, it probably took me 45 mins to eat all of it.
The fruit bun was extremely cute. Kind of like a wholemeal hot x bun.
Dinner – Chicken Dijon
Loved the wild rice. Loved the veg with the mustard sauce. Not a great fan of the chicken – was not breast chicken. If this came without chicken I’d keep ordering it, because everything else was beautiful. So, adding this to the list of ones to not re-order.
Breakfast – Pikelets with Strawberry Compote and Honey Yoghurt
I had been looking forward to this as a kind of breakfast dessert all day and it absolutely did not disappoint. Certainly the easiest of the cooked breakfasts I’ve put together so far – 1:45 in the microwave for the compote, 40 seconds for the pikelets, put the pikelets on the plate, put the compote on top of the pikelets and I was supposed to put the yoghurt on top of that, but I liked to eat that separately.
Next time I’d put a sprinkle or few of cinnamon into the compote – there is a lot of apple in there – and that would take it from awesome to superfreakingbrilliant.
