EDF are bastards. Power cuts of 8+ hours two night running, so no central heating (electric ignition) or hot water. So we went out for dinner last night and stayed in a hotel. Of course, this totally wrecked my food plans for the day AND it was a rest day so my allowance was low anyway. Cold, tired (didn't sleep well at all the last two nights) and generally very grumpy.

Not a happy bunny at all.

Dinner was nice though. Very nice. We tried a Japanese place just down the road, which specialises in Maki rolls. And the food was really tasty and not expensive either.

B - greek yogurt with fruit compote and walnut pieces on top
S - tiny slice of rye toast with ham and a mini babybel light
L - salad - spinach, goats cheese, peppers, tomato, capers, walnuts and lemon juice
S - 1 scoop whey in semi-skimmed milk
S - carrots and houmous
D - gyoza, followed by salmon maki rolls (shared) then teryaki beef with steamed rice with 2 bottles of beer and then a pint in the hotel bar before bed

  1. Oh no!! what utter twats! Sorry to hear that :-(

    hotels are fun though, booked one through, 4* in kensington for only £60 before crimbo, very nice too :-)

    what's the name of the restaurant? I was in Pret earlier salivating over the sushi and thinking how much I'd love to go and have some soon as it's pretty damn healthy and my favourite japanese restaurant (bincho yakitori) doesn't actually *serve* sushi oddly enough!

  2. Thanks guys! It's just soo frustrating that we thuoght we had the power back then it went off again for most of the day and night again.

    TJ:- Makiyaki on Wimbledon Broadway. God knows how many times I've passed it and though "must try it" and finally we have. They do do sushi, but specialise in slightly battered (little dots of it over the surface rather than a coating) maki rolls which are heavenly. The yakitori chicken is gorgeous too (though the gyoza are fried rather than steamd!)
