Still hanging on to that bandwagon!
I had some of my failed cereal/bread again for pudding last night, and it was still just as good as the day before – as was today’s breakfast.
After last week’s breakfasts all looking revolting but tasting great this one was the opposite… except it also tasted great 🙂
I mixed 30g flour, a mix of gram, GF brown mix and peanut, with a mashed half-banana, 1tbsp milk, 1tsp flax in 1tbsp warm water, a pinch of baking powder and a shake of cinnamon and microwaved it on full power for about two minutes.
Then, this morning, I poured a tiny bit more milk over it and put it back in the microwave for about half a minute, then plopped it out of the bowl. Most importantly, I topped it with a pb/strawberry jam sauce and was in breakfast heaven.
Please be impressed at the self-control it took to stop scoffing long enough to take this photo 🙂
Fully signed up to the socca cause. 100%.
It was especially nice eating breakfast knowing that I didn’t have to go out in the freezing-fecking-cold-it’s-supposed-to-be-March-what’s-going-on morning to do the horses as my friend, who I blessed to the bottom of my heart this morning, was doing them instead.
And it was sooooo cold. We’ve had this bitter, evil wind ALL week and I ain’t ‘appy about it, especially as I’ve got to work tomorrow morning 😦
It’s going to be really interesting because they’re bringing a replica of the first Spitfire ever made to the Battle of Britain war memorial near work and I’m going to have the privilege of meeting a BoB veteran which will be a real honour.
But the downside is, the memorial’s right on the clifftop, so there’s more than a slight chance it’s going to be what you might call somewhat breezy. And it’s not going to be any warmer tomorrow. Grrrr.
To avoid thinking about that, I made a deeeeelicious dinner:
I baked slices of aubergine for about 20 minutes, then layered them up with a mix of sauted mushroom and tomato, spinach, red pesto and a bit of cheese and baked again, then sprinkled more cheese on top and grilled till it was all melty….. perfect.
Some might say I’m in a bit of a rut where vegetable accompaniments go but I’ll have you know I can be a bit of a maverick – sometimes I even have roasted carrot instead of butternut… 🙂
But I always have a big dollop of this:
That Hugh Jass bottle is 910g of tomatoey, ketchuppy goodness and all for the bargain price of £2. Nice one Asda; that’ll keep me going for at least, er, a week?!
But does this picture look familiar at all – or is it just me?
I feel it’s even more important than usual, given the recession, to make sure no ketchup is wasted. Although to my mind, wasting ketchup is criminal at any time.
Although I do confess to wasting some of it…
Does anyone else do that with sauces or anything else?! (Please say it’s not just me!)
And… happy Friday! At last. anyone doing anything exciting this weekend?
