this morning's fast breaking coffee was accompanied by spinach and eggs. I've noticed that my love of spinach has increased. Maybe to the point that I can justify buying it in large quantities, like restaurant scale bags. I've done that once so far and I ate it all, needed to throw out none. But I had help in the course of consuming that bag. This last bag was a grocery store sized bag, 9 ounces, and lasted only two meals.

Today I treated myself to a Skinny Egg White sandwich from Bruegger's. It was surprisingly good! I would definitely buy it again.

My mum used to use that phrase quite often, and that was always the context.

If there were a few kids over and Mum was making sandwiches for us, she'd say, "I'll just make a few rounds of sandwiches.", meaning more than one sandwich.

I don't know for a fact, but I suspect the term is quite old and from the days prior to bread tins when most loaves were rounder rather than square.
Maybe the idea is like a round of ammunition. The whole requires two or more components to actually do its job: shot ain't much without powder, and vice versa. Bread plus peanut butter plus jelly.

And after all, if you are making a sandwich with peanut butter, you deserve to be shot.

Today I had a Celebrity Slim shake for breakfast.
Mum & I are on their programme for the month.
It was on sale in our local pharmacy - £5 a box (a week's worth) down from £29.99 because they are rebranding.
I figured it was cheaper than buying food, so why not?
And I really could do with shifting some lbs. I mean REALLY need to (as usual).

However I am also drinking. Which won't help. Never does. Oops.
I have seriously cut back, and hope to be teetotal again by the time school starts.

Goat milk yogurt, tortilla with egg ham and cheese, and coffee. All milk products were produced here along with the egg.

I swear I'm burping up powder

Griff, your brekkus sounds the most inviting of all I've seen so far.
Can I come round tomorrow?

Two-bite brand blueberry scones.

A bit too sweet if you ask me.

And scalding hot coffee.

I can see why.

Bacon is gluten-free, too.

Max is having oats with banana for breaky. So far I've had coffee. I think I might have some rockmelon soon.
