I'm stitting down eating steam pudding while they do the weigh-in on the Biggest Looser.

Lemme see. For dinner, while watching the cricket :D , we had one of my concoctions - chicken breast fillet diced and fried in canola oil, onion, tomatoes, corn kernels, capsicum, mushrooms and rice. The rice was partially cooked before being added to the mess to cook down. The tomatoes were cooked up last week to make a thickish paste (nothing removed so it has the seeds and skins) so goodness knows how many tomatoes went into the mix but quite a lot (I buy them by the carton and cook them down, the freeze the in batches). Sort of a risotto that isn't a risotto. Rather yummy as it turned out.

No desert **insert pious smilie**

But I guess I should be honest and mention the red 'chateau cardboard' lubricant, all three glasses of it (see, there's an honest reason for my weight and it ain't a lack of effort).

Whole meal pasta and a home made tomato-y pasta sauce I whipped up and cooked in a slow cooker. Lotsa veg, little bit of mince and enjoyed with a glass of red and a couple of slices of wholemeal bread. Turned out pretty well I thought. :)

What's your drop of choice Richard? There's plenty of chateau de cardboard out there. :)

As for chocolate - we have some in the house, but I make my wife hide it and only break rations out when I *really* need it. :oops:

Kaiser Stuhl Soft Dry Red - you get it in the 5l boxes :D
Yeah, there are times where you need one or two in quick succession to appreciate it :roll:

And yes, I do like a good wine, and a good beer (Coopers forever) and I'm fussy about how they pour my Guinness ... but for 364 days of the year, all I can afford is paint stripper.

Just had a BBQ with some friends at home...scotch fillet steak, chilli beef skinless sausages, chicken sausages and mountains of salad. Managed to convince myself it was vital protein for muscle repair :wink:

I'll ignore the pavlova (sp??) that I also managed to eat. Our friends brought it around so it would have been rude to refuse!

All washed down with Vodka and RedBull which is as low carb as you can get I believe. (I ignore the fact that one is slowing your heart and the other is speeding it up! I don't do it often so I can forgive myself! :lol: )

Cheers,

Gary

Well I'm battling some foul pestilence that has invaded my respiratory tract so I had to force myself to eat last night - managed half a bowl of pasta with bacon, cream and mushroom sauce, lovingly prepared by hubby.

This morning, a caffe latte and a shortbread biscuit. Absolutely no interest in food.

Breakfast - my usual:
2 x slices low GI 9-grain toast with Nutella...yummy.

Nutella is fantastic - not only is it low GI and has good oils in it, you feel like you are eating chocolate too :D

We've had an influx of mangoes though so the next few days will be mango smoothies with honey, yoghurt and wheatgerm. I love the summer fruits.

Moo...
