Pum update…Spring and Eats

I’m currently still enjoying a lovely long weekend and thought I’d spend some time relaxing and writing a wee blog update.

It finally feels like Spring!  I was staying in Gleneagles for a couple of overnights and the weather was just great.  It was so nice wandering around the grounds, taking the dog a walk and soaking up the sun in the outdoor pool.

We enjoyed some absolutely amazing food but perhaps due to the classy surroundings or just because I was in good company I completely forgot to take any snaps of the food at all!  Rest assured I enjoyed plenty seafood, beef, venison and some seriously delicious desserts (in my element hello!) as well as gorgeous wines paired to the meal and a fair few cocktails…



I then went on to Loch Lomond to meet my mum for an overnight at Inverbeg.  We did a couple long walks down into Luss and again enjoyed some good food (a little less fine dining and more comfort food, totally perfect after a tiring day).

I had the battered haddock and chips then lemon posset and my mum had the hake, so yummy…




We went more walking and then a bit of shopping this morning, stopping to refuel of course at Jenners at Loch Lomond Shores.


Such an amazing weekend I feel very spoiled and very happy!!


You might be thinking this isn’t exactly a pumdiets kind of weekend but as I knew it was coming (and that it would be very food focussed) last week I enjoyed some lighter meals (with the exception of an amazing curry night at my friend Kate’s house).

Greek salad with chicken…


Sweet potato, eggs, spinach with almond basil pesto


Homemade seafood paella (Josh’s recipe not mine)…


Plus a really delicious lean beef chilli my friend Emma cooked with a lovely salad that I gobbled before taking a picture woops (note to self get that recipe!).

It is all about balance after all…
