Mmm, perfect start to a day, lay in bed thinking about getting up for ten minutes then went downstairs fed the not my cat, got me a glass of water and now I'm sat eating a bowl of freshly picked strawberries typing my blog. Love not rushing I do!
Yesterday was a good day too, after a morning of paperwork I nipped along to the fruit farm and picked those strawberries myself, I did enjoy it, twenty minutes of stretching and crawling under the rows trying to find the best ones. It wasn't until I'd got to my car that I realised I'd made a right mess of my nice shoes, they weren't the kind of shoes for that kind of work! Oops.
I'm looking forward to them opening the fields, so I can start picking my own fruit and vegetables this summer, nothing tastes better than freshly picked food.
I cooked chicken tikka masala for tea last night, I do like that Spice Tailor range, it was delicious. Today though I think I need something lighter in my diet, I'm thinking fish, get me some omega 3 in my life! Variety is the spice of life they say, so I'm ready for a little variety because I've had a lot of spice this last week, don't want to get repetitive and boring now do I!
I've got a cauliflower that needs cooking so maybe cauliflower rice or I've still not tried roasting one, so today might have to be that day!
Spiced roasted cauliflower
1 large head of cauliflower, broken into florets
2tsp ground cumin
2tsp ground coriander
2tbsp olive oil (8pp)
Freshly ground black pepper.
Preheat the oven to 180oC/Gas 6.
Put cauliflower into a roasting dish with spices and oil, mix together until well coated. Roast in oven for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through, then serve.
That'd be nice with a bit of baked cod I reckon!
What chance do I have of ever being slim, when I'm thinking about food from 5am :) At least these days I have a 'to eat' list so that I can plan to eat all those lovely foods another day and don't try to get them all into one day!
Here's to a wonderful weekend, rain or shine let's make it a good one BeYOUtiful.
