Room for a pudding

When I was a little girl my mum used to say to me, 'if you don't eat your dinner, you won't get any pudding'. And I had to eat whatever she put in front of me. Sometimes I didn't like it and had to swallow it quickly because it tasted awful. Just so I could get my pudding.
I used to like puddings a lot more than I liked dinners. These days I like my dinners, and very rarely have a pudding because I am too full after eating a big plate full of vegetables.
Tonight I thought, why bother with a dinner, when I have some juicy fruit in the fridge. So here is my fruity dinner. Melon, nectarine, apricot, and grapes, topped with plain yogurt.
Now I am bursting with fruit, no room for a dinner. Eat what you like when you like, provided it's healthy food of course.
Toodle pip.

  1. Thats my kind of food, plenty of fruit and yoghurts altho today I cooked a dinner, my neighbour who has an allot5ment gave me Runner Beans, Carrots, Broad Beans, and a couple of Marrows, I did stuffed marrow with lots of the other veggies, the marrow was stuffed with cous-cous and bits of pepper that was in the fridge, all in all a very cheap meal

  9. Hello Ilona from House Fairy

    Brilliant dinner!
    I have noticed...you rarely eat bread, cakes and pastries.

    1. Hi House Fairy. That's right. I have bread in the freezer, always wholemeal or seeded, never white. I sometimes have beans on toast, and make sandwiches to take out. Occasionally I have honey on a slice of bread. Cakes, I might buy one or two if they are very cheap as a treat. Don't buy them if not reduced. Very rarely buy pastries. Don't buy or make pies, flans, pasties. All have too much fat, sugar, and salt in them.
