    drink:

    - (white) tea
    - milk shake with banana and spinach
    - tequila with lime and salt - i don't drink a lot lately, but when i do this is my favourite
    - beer

    food:

    - hummus - i only ever learnt how to make it a couple of months ago, already a staple. i like it extra lemony and garlicky
    - pasta with tomato and garlic sauce (i love a brand of fresh tortellini with pines or mozarella)
    - oven baked french fries (with mayo)
    - salads - mostly tomato and cucumber but with a bit of flax seeds i'm embracing something i read about how some vegetable leaves are really tasty and nutritious and have been experimenting with putting leaves from turnips, carrots, cauliflower etc in salads
    - barely boiled cauliflower/broccoli/leeks/brussel sprouts - i love this cause it's super easy and fast and tasty with lemon and olive oil (or a killer mayo/ketchup combo for the cauli)

    i've started getting a lot of takeout lately (i'm lazy but i also want to support the restaurants i frequent usually) but i still make some stuff at home.

    Sweets and chocolate mainly. I seem to not be able to control myself, especially at night time.

    On the other hand I am making more of my meals from scratch, so thats got to be a good thing.

    Tea, Blue WKD, Squares crisps which I've really fallen back in love with.

    I'm comfort eating a lot recently through the stress of it all. As I type, I'm eating a bag of dark chocolate truffles I just bought from the Lidl.

    I keep making bread and hummus.

    Tonight I'd made PIZZA DOUGH and cooked it on our pizza stone on our new outdoor grill thing for the balcony. I was so excited.

    Otherwise, no different to usual.

    Salads - Its never been my thing but I’m trying to eat more veggies and my current go to is spinach, rocket, tomato, avocado and pomegranates
    Chocolate - I need to stop but I eat chocolate after every meal
    Tea - I prefer white jasmine but I’m running low and the shop is out so I’m doing cream of earl grey. I have some in the office that I should get including some rose black tea.
    Sparkling Water - lemon or lime, sometimes mixed berries if I’m feeling risky
    Frozen samosas and aloo tiki - they make a nice side to my salad

    Mainly I am just using the lockdown to justify increased chocolate consumption. I was very excited this week to find Sainsbury's selling Green & Black's Easter eggs for 60 PENCE. I may have bought three...

    Olives as well, and I am still drinking too much Cherry Pepsi Max.

    I don’t know if this Finish thin bread is available outside the North, but they’re so addictive. With some Philadelphia cheese on, I could easily down a whole package on one go.

    I've found a kebab place that makes their own ayran and I prefer that to the "bottled" one because it tastes more milky :horny:

    And I agree, a home made ayran is nicer.
