I was off ill yesterday afternoon with a cold and I fulfilled the above saying by becoming AN EATING MACHINE!
I chomped my way through:
Two portions of homemade red pepper risotto.
A tin of Baxter's spicy parsnip soup and a roll.
Three packets of Walkers baked salted crisps.
Two large chocolate chip cookies from the Tesco bakery section (one white, one milk).
A carton of Ambrosia Devonshire Custard (500mls).
Two chocolate truffle sweets and a piece of vanilla fudge.
And I was still considering eating the other carton of custard toward the end of the evening.
