I have this lovely section on food, and find myself talking about what I eat in my main posts. Well, here is what’s for dinner (and breakfast and lunch) in Stirling, Scotland this week:
Breakfast—U.S. low-carb bars from my stash (I was still on the bus up from London), mini-chocolate Digestives, and half a bottle of the nastiest low-cal Vitamin Water-type drink ever.
Dinner—Indian fare at the Taj Mahal restaurant. I had lamb, Arianna had chicken. We shared rice and naan, and I had an Indian beer. Both meals for £19.95, no tipping.
Breakfast—2 cups of tea with milk and Truvia. Forgot to eat.
Lunch—nothing. Was out with Cathie and Bill to see Linlithgow Palace.
Dinner—pub fare, fried mushrooms on a bed of dressed lettuce (2 starters in one, and both delish), and then fish and chips. Best fish ever. Had a half-pint of ‘lime and lager,’ which is a Tennant’s with lime juice added. Tea with milk after.
Breakfast—tea with milk (my stand-by), yogurt.
Lunch—brie and bacon panini, tea with milk. Both at a little café at a woolen shop next door to where Hamish the Hielan’ Coo is stabled.
Dinner—Clives in Bridge of Allan, just north of Stirling. Had a starter of haggis, neeps and tatties, entrée of Scottish steak-burger. This is their hamburger. I had them hold the bun. It came with chips, cole slaw, and ‘dressed leaves,’ which is to say lettuce with an Italian dressing. Had a glass of merlot with it all. Couldn’t finish it.
Breakfast—tea with milk and Fage yogurt with the rest of my mini-chocolate Digestives
Lunch—again, forgot to eat, because I was sitting in the library on the internet and you can’t eat there
Dinner—whole-grain bread, spread with farm butter and mature Farmhouse cheddar, grilled. After, I had a cup of tea with milk and some chocolate Hobnobs. Yum.
Breakfast—2 cups of tea with milk, more grilled cheese toast, 2 chocolate Hobnobs
Lunch—nothing, I’m at the library again!
Dinner—I’ll let you know. I’m down to the last of my bread, butter, and cheese. Still have a few Hobnobs left, though. May splurge on some take-away.
