Funny food Friday

Today I bounded out of bed ready to tackle another I want my bikini body workout. Good stuff indeed. Then it was time for a green smoothie.

It was a hectic morning as we all had to be out the door at 8.30am so breakfast was packed to eat in the car. I had a small multigrain sandwich with spreadable cheese, tomato and cucumber.

My morning snack with a few corn thins with cottage cheese. I didn’t end up eating the banana.

I bought a skim iced choc and salad for lunch but I didn’t end up eating the salad. Strangely enough I really didn’t feel much like eating today. Shock horror!!

I think my chickens enjoyed the salad though :-).

My afternoon snack was another green smoothie.

For tonights dinner guests I served some nibbles. I had mainly hummus and vegetables, plus a few tortilla chips and a few pieces of cheese.

Dinner was a BBQ with baked potatoes, sweet potatoe, pineapple, onion and my new favourite salad.

My selection…

I really didn’t feel much like desert (apple crumble) but since Amy had made it I felt I should have some. It was yummy and I ate about 3/4.

Lastly I served tea and coffee and a platter with some bicuits, dark and milk chocolate and some fudge (bought from the farm last weekend). I had a tea and minute piece of fudge – with was so very yummy.

Weekend Food Fog

Okay… we’re not going to dwell on how bad eating was over the weekend and i hardly took any photos – so I’ll just give some highlights.

Lunch on Saturday was leftover pizza..dinner was tacos made with TVP…

Sunday was Mothers Day. I was bought tea and freshly baked cookies in bed. I didn’t eat all of these mind you :-).

We then headed off for a day at Belgenny Farm. Lots of fun but nothing proper for me (being vegetarian) to eat so I kind of snacked…

and some cookies in the car on the way home. Needless to say I rather starving when we got home at 4pm so enjoyed some cheese and crackers.

Later I dug out some fried rice from the freezer which we enjoyed for dinner.

 

Home made dressing delight

Had a lovely morning walk with the dogs followed by the upper body part of my workout. Then came a green smoothie – using freshly ground flaxseeds cortesy of my new grinder.

After dropping the girls at school I had a cup of tea and a slice of grainy bread with hummus.

Spent the morning doing random jobs around the house. Lunch was a salad with egg…and homemade dressing. I finally got around to making a honey mustard dressing with equal parts (1 tbsp) dijon mustard, honey, olive oil and lemon juice from Kath Eats Real Food.I fully expected not to like it – after all I do like a creamy dressing – but this was REALLY good.

Afternoon tea – a cup of tea and a chocolate muffin (homemade this morning and on the healthy side).

IMG_6441

This afternoons snack was pita bread with cheese, hummus, carrot and sprouts. Yum!!

IMG_6448

Served with tea, of course.

Tonights dinner was a lentil bake. I’ve made it before and I love it. But unfortunately I’m the only one who does…

IMG_6450

You can find the recipe at Attic 24. If you like lentils you’ll love it. I even forgot the peanuts and it still tasted great. Real comfort food.

And lastly…

Plans gone astray

It was  a beautiful Sunday here – definitely more Summer than Autumn. I started the day with what else but a cup of tea and a piece of banana cake :-). Everyone played on their computer until Amy decided she would make us breakfast. How lucky am I? It’s not even Mothers Day till next Sunday.

IMG_6375

She made us scrambled eggs, tinned spaghetti and toast. Served on our special plates :-).

We had planned to go on a bike ride and have lunch out but at about 11am I started feeling icky in the stomach and a bit light-headed. I had some cruskits with cottage cheese to see if that helped.

IMG_6385

It didn’t – so I tried some chocolate – thinking maybe some sugar might do the trick. It didn’t work either so we decided to stay in for the day.

IMG_6387

I didn’t really feel like eating but made myself have a salad (featuring falafel and homemade hummus) around 2pm.

I did start to feel better which was good. I was able to enjoy some afternoon tea.

IMG_6392

We put on Avatar to watch and the girls decided they wanted popcorn. I wasn’t go to have any (since I’d already had the above) but it smelled good so I had a little bowl.

IMG_6395

Drizzled with a bit of melted butter…

IMG_6396

We ended up having a late dinner. It was new recipe tonight – tofu & noodle stir-fry – which was a bit too fiddly for a Sunday night. Amy didn’t like it. I thought it was okay. Kevin really enjoyed it.

Made a cup of tea to have in bed with an orange chocolate bar.
