Cup o' tea?
I have returned from 10 days in London, visiting MFMIL (My-future-mother-in-law). Understand that I am on a pre-wedding diet. "we" in fact are on a pre-wedding diet. I managed to say "no thank you" to a great number of the offers, and yet, I still gained 5 lbs in 10 days. That will tell you how much food was brought out. It was like being on a cruise ship. England must be run by the Lords of the national dairy council. Strawberries and cream, scones and clotted cream, bread and butter, tea with milk, coffee with milk and sugar... and it went on and on. If you are familiar with Weight Watchers at all, you are shivering in horror. I have visited the grocery store, and I am now supplied with rice cakes, salsa, lettuce, and protien powder. And that is what "we" will be eating for the next 6 weeks. I'll hide the McVitties!
