If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is made up of. Bruce Lee
I think I've finally come back down to earth after a fantastic meeting open last night, once again I'm so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life willing to give up their free time to help me out, I just love them all so much. The room was buzzing, my manager, bless here helped me massively by doing all the nitty bits that take time (now that's a proper boss, one that gets stuck in - doesn't just stand watching!) Everyone was so patient and amazing and we had a great night, you know it's been a success when they're struggling to park = result! I was so busy I missed out on a slice of Julie's awesome cake, at least I saved a few weeklies though.
A Truly Delicious Meal! The Old Mitre, Essington
It was a great day all round, great days for me always include great food and I'll not lie, eating out, staying on track and GREAT food isn't a sentence I say often, good food yeah, I do enjoy a jacket with a few beans on, but finding a great meal that doesn't put a massive dent in your weeklies is hard to do. I did it yesterday, we went to the Mitre at Essington https://www.facebook.com/theoldmitreessington, it wasn't on the menu so I asked if there was any chance I could have a pan fried chicken breast on a pile of salad - they said no problem and it was so good, I could eat that any time and be happy, I wished I could make my chicken salad that tasty, so much flavour!
I'd had a giant eggy crumpet for breakfast with mushrooms and tomatoes, then when I got back from my meeting, even though it was half seven, I still had stuff to do and I was bouncing, I still went to the effort of cooking the tandoori chicken I'd put to marinade, so glad I did as that was tasty too. Check me out, I'd even removed the skin - not gonna lie, it's better with the skin but I saved 5sp removing it and I want a weight loss next Friday!
I did enjoy a bit of wine, needed to bring me down off the ceiling if I'm honest, and I still finished on 32sp - BOOM! Back on track, happy days.
Today will keep me busy too, I've got my lovely meeting this morning, then a massage this afternoon, then some quality time is in order with my mom, we may even get to sit up the garden if the sun shines, I need to put another coat on the big bench.
Menu wise today, they'll be Tandoori chicken being cooked again and I bought a lovely piece of cod in Morrisons yesterday to make Baja Fish, it's a Old El Paso taco kit my mate got for me to try, looks delicious as she cooked it last night. I think I'll have the other crumpet for breakfast as it's past it's sell by date :)
Right I'm still buzzing over last night so I'm going to go pour me another glass of water, and have me a shower.
Here's to a fantastic weekend #TrackerPact, you're more than welcome to jump on board that challenge, it really helped me stay on track yesterday knowing I was writing it down and I like the look of this tracker;
Here's today's recipe,
Margherita Tortilla Pizza
SERVES 2 ~ Prep time 5 mins ~ Cook time 5 mins ~ SmartPoints 6 per serving
2 soft flour tortillas
6 tbsp passata
80g light mozzarella, diced
Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6.
Put the tortillas on a large baking sheet and spread over the passata. Scatter over the mozzarella and
season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

I could use up the extra mini tortillas in my fish kit for that recipe or something similar if we don't eat them all!
Right I'm off, have a good one BeYOUtiful xx
