Mistakes and ‘failure’ means you are trying, you are alive, and you care. Real failure is when you give up before you reach your goal — everything else up to that point is progress.
I'm working my way through the kitchen, yesterday I used up the stuff in the fridge to make lunch, steamed some sliced potatoes, chopped spring onions that were left over from my cooking demo's, bacon (dry fried till crispy), layered it all in a dish and poured over a mushroom pasta sauce I had in the fridge then topped with cheese and tomato and banged it in the oven, worked out at about 13sp a portion, served 4. It was delicious and simple!
For tea I'd bought a pack of 6 bread rolls from Aldi for about 50p and I found a packet of John West mackerel with a twist in the cupboard, only 2sp for the pack, so I had that and ranch coleslaw on a cob for 7sp. Did the job, I was still hungry though, actually I wasn't hungry really, I still wanted to eat, completely different thing, so I had a ham cob too, the cobs were 4sp each and the ham a point so not too bad.
I've not tracked all week again which isn't going to help the results at the scales at all! It's a bit like having a wash isn't it, that has to be done daily and so does healthy eating if you want to continually lose weight, so back to it today, I've let things slide a bit, I'll blame moms birthday but that isn't really the reason, it's just bad habits are like comfy beds, really easy to get into, not so easy to get out of, speaking of which, I could easily spend all weekend in my comfy bed.
I've got some veggie burgers (7sp I think they are) in the freezer we're going to have today, that's what I bought the cobs for, quick and easy when I get home this afternoon and don't feel like cooking.
The danger of eating out of the kitchen is not having fruit and veggies, I'm not too fussed about fruit as long as I get plenty of veggies, so I will stock up as and when I need them, I've got some stuff still. There's a butternut squash I need to do something with.
I've been watched Eat Well For Less and saw this recipe on there the other night, I really fancy giving it a go;
Right I better go get ready for my last cooking demo of the week, ten times I've cooked this meal this week and I could still eat it for my tea tonight!
Here's to a great Saturday and hopefully a weekend of sunshines and smiles.
