It started with Rick Stein.
First his fish and chips in Falmouth – very proficient although the Panther argued the tartar sauce was too mustardy.
Then the evenings in the cottage all smiley and sunburnt watching Rick cooking his way round India. The Panther was inspired. Today he bought himself a spice grinder and created a delicious dhal and a sumptuous madras.
Only his timing might be a bit testing. That’s because I’m starting the 5:2 fast diet tomorrow. You know… Starvation for two days a week and scoff all you like the rest of the time.
I’m inspired too. Supersister has been 5:2ing for a couple of months and she looks amazing, back into clothes from two babies ago.
Though I’m apprehensive about it. Converts say it’s easy, that it starts to be enjoyable, satisfying even. We’ll see.
