I went to Slimming World last night, not expecting to be pleased with the result and I had lost 3 pounds so I was very pleasantly surprised by that. I was over my daily syns or unable to calculate them so many times last week so I was pleased with the loss.
I worked from home today so I was able to eat very well. Eggs, ham and mushrooms for breakfast. A snack of grapes. I used my new scales for the first time today and they are excellent. They have a larger scale for standard weighing of items such as a mixing bowl you want to add baking ingredients to and a small scale which measures in 0.1 increments of a gram. Perfect for weighing out 25g of Cheddar to grate in to my soup.
I haven’t been able to weigh anything recently which is necessary when counting syns and I am pleased with my new purchase. I heated up some of the ribollita soup I had made on Sunday. It is so good and was even better with some Cheddar. Very tasty indeed. If I have the energy, I will post the recipe tomorrow. I love working from home as I don’t waste 3 hours a day commuting so I was available earlier to cook dinner. Harvey wanted noodles and I wanted vegetables so we had a huge stir fry.
Vegetable and Noodle Stir Fry with Chicken and Salmon (Serves 4 – 6)
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp grated ginger
1 tsp chopped chillis (optional)
1 tbsp brown sugar
juice of 1 lime
3 tbsp oil
Chopped vegetables ( I used sweet potato matchsticks, carrot matchsticks, French green beans, pak choi, red and green pepper, broccoli)
Fresh basil and mint
Pre cooked noodles
Pre cooked chicken and salmon (optional)
Mix sauce ingredients together and set aside
Chop up all vegetables. I put them in 2 bowls: veggies that take longer such as sweet potato, carrots and green beans in one and everything else in the other
Heat oil in a wok or large frying pan
Fry vegetables in batches
add the sauce and heat through
Add the noodles, chicken and salmon
When it’s all cooked or warmed through, serve and garnish with chopped mint and basil
Stuff your face! I really enjoyed this and so did everyone else.
