Cheesy stuff!

Monday 18th March 2019
Remember that the reason you're doing this is to make your life better.

Well my day has started lovely, just had a bit of love with my 'not my cat' in the living room before coming up to my office to see the lovely sunset, isn't he/she so graceful, although I'm covered in fur now!

Yesterday was a good day too, I enjoyed a walk on the chase with my brother before coming back to walk Alfie, he took me out twice, the second time we got hailed on!  We enjoyed these for breakfast, they are 1SP for one, 3SP for 2 or 4SP for 3, They're not bad at all and on offer 2 for £5 in Waitrose.  There's also a couple of other places stock them, check online https://www.goodlittlecompany.com/stockists/ 

I made a lazy chicken dinner for my tea using the veg that was past it's use by date and a packet of mash which when made up is 3SP per 100g, 
I'm maintaining well at the moment and I know I need to get my tracking back into line, I'm tracking my meals, I'm just over my points, it's all good though, it's a learning curve, I'm enjoying food at the moment but not obsessed with it and I know as the weather warms up and I warm every Sunday, it'll all help to tip the balance on those scales. 

I'm going to make cauliflower cheese today as there's a cauliflower in the fridge saying 'you need to use me!' There's 2 recipes on the WW app for 7 or 8SP a portion.  Asda do a cheese sauce that's 2SP per serving, and I know Bisto do one and the app says it's 2SP per portion unprepared but I've just looked and you add water so that won't make it higher like milk would've.  I'm going to see what's in my fridge and go from there, I know I have protein cheese so that'll make it less points but I'll put parmesan on the top maybe.

I've just found this recipe on the WW app for Macaroni Cheese now you're talking;
