I was up early today so I was able to enjoy this beautiful dawn.
Harvey went to work with his Daddy for the day so I had a chance to get ready for Christmas. Time for a potter about in the garden first though, crunching on the heavy frost. What is going on out here? The spring flowers are blooming. They are all confused and this little rose bush is full of new buds!
I made a perfect poached egg for breakfast. The yolk was runny and the white was just set. A perfect egg is a thing of great joy.
Lunch was very easy – a reheated portion of the red kidney bean chill with brown rice, leftover form the other night. It tasted better after a few days and I served it with some mango chutney and Greek yogurt.
Supper was a rabbit burger. In the past I have not enjoyed rabbit and I suspected it was psychological rather then due to the taste. I used to have pet rabbits as a child and don’t like the idea of eating them. However, they are a low fat source of protein and I decided to stop feeling sentimental about it and try the meat again. After all, it’s only a fluffy bunny isn’t it?
I bought the burgers so they don’t resemble the animal they come from. I gently fried them in a ridged pan. They didn’t shrink in size as they cooked so they had not been pumped full of water and it shows how low fat they are.
I served mine with ketchup and onion on a white bap (no wholemeal in the supermarket today) with pea shoots, cress, cherry tomatoes and beetroot in mayonnaise.
But I only managed one mouthful. I just didn’t like the taste or the smell. So no more bunny burgers for me. I had some Shropshire Blue cheese instead and the salad.
Then Harvey and I headed off to Ramsgate. I have a busy day tomorrow, preparing the house for Christmas visitors so I wanted to wake up in the house. First job was the tree.
The rest of the chores can wait until tomorrow. This is my view from my bedroom tonight
Oh yes! You will never believe what happened at Weight Watchers this evening!!! I actually lost a pound . No idea how but I am pleased. I know I was very bad several times this week but I guess the rest of the time I was very good and I did quite a bit of walking too. Phew! No weigh in next week so the next date on the scales will be January 2nd. If I weigh the same, I will be pleased. I want to start the new year with a 3 stone weight loss.
