Cucumber addict

I have decided thats what I am... a cucumber addict. Last year it was American Mustard - but I think its time has come for it to be replaced. I am going through two per week, which is quite restrained I think. I could easily eat more. My other half absolutely detests them, which is fine with me cos it means I get to eat it ALL!!!!!

I had a 'nothing' weekend. You know, one of those weekends where if people ask me what I got up to on the weekend, my reply is "nothing". Well, nothing interesting, that is. I trained (half-heartedly) cleaned, washed clothes, did the groceries, I cooked for most of the day yesterday in preparation for the week ahead... boring boring boring!

I did buy a couple of CD's on Saturday - that was about the most exciting thing. One of the CD's is System of a Down; Hypnotise. I LOVE System of a Down and this album is pretty cool - I was headbanging in the kitchen on Saturday afternoon, and had it playing so loud in my car this morning!

I am a bit flat today so this is not much of a post. There is so much going on in my head at the moment that I dont really know where I'm at.

Hi Hilary, I love cucumbers as well especially Lebanese ones.

I hope you are feeling a lot better now, hang in there we all have days like that.

Hi Hilary, I agree cucumbers are great, I'd easy go through two a week! Don't worry about your down days, we all have them. I hope your feeling much better tomorrow. Hilds

I've just outed myself as a cucumber fanatic. I'd eat about 4 or 5 a week. Seriously I go on these little food benders - at the moment I'm into oranges and peanut butter..go figure.

I know the feeling of flatness oh too well. Positive vibes being sent your way.

Hey Hilary,
I understand the flat feeling completely, it is really difficult. I too love cucumber it would be a fav of mine as well. Just a strange question, how do you go about preserving your meals for the week if you cook on one day, i struggle with this can you give me a tip?

Thanks Ali, feeling better now, though it took a few days. :(

Cucumbers are the BEST Hilds, two a week is pretty reasonable I think!

Liz, wow you DO eat a lot of those little buggers dont you! You got me there!

Lia I'm glad someone else out there likes System of a Down, I cant get enough at the moment! Dont think too many people know who they are though?

Hi Bec, usually I cook up my weeks worth of lunches on a Sunday, and just pop them in the freezer. This week though I also baked mini quiches and roasted sweet potato - they tend to only last about 3 days in the fridge. When they run out I revert back to protein shakes. Hope that helps!
