Harvey and I had a lovely walk in Hemstead Forest this morning, our route taking about an hour. Having worked non stop from 6 am until 11:30 pm yesterday it was better than usual to be outside in the fresh air.
I made something different for breakfast. I had wanted to make Huevos Rancheros but I didn’t quite have the ingredients so I added some onion and a pepper to baked beans and added a poached egg. I thought it was OK but Harvey raved about it which was very pleasing.
These are cute. I love the bright orange display of pumpkins in Autumn.Lunch was very simple but delicious. I rarely choose to eat pasta and even more rarely ravioli but both of these are so good and they only take 2 or 4 minutes to cook. Yesterday I had a packet of the fiorelli and it was delicious, just eaten with a little butter and black pepper. Today I mixed them up and we shared them.
Today I added a tiny amount of this lovely cheese. It has a medium-strong but mellow and rich flavour so you don’t need much to get a good cheese flavour.
Served with a simple salad of mixed leaves and a variety of tomatoes. I was hungry after our walk so I enjoyed this even more than I would have done usually. Late afternoon I had a snack of some fresh pineapple which was perfectly ripe, sweet and juicy so it was a pleasure to eat.
Supper was a very quick and easy jacket potato with a minced beef, tomato and sweetcorn made up as I went along something plonked on top and served with fresh tomatoes. I did add a little butter to one half of the potato. It tasted fine and was quite adequate, all washed down with 2 modest glasses of red wine.
I didn’t add up my Slimming World points today. I am probably over my syn values but not by too much and with a good walk I would hope I am ok today.
