I have been invited to a wedding on 4th September in London and I want to wear a nice outfit.
I am also going to Paris for the hen party on 14th August, it is my best friend Pat who's daughter is getting married... I have know her since the day she was born 34 yrs ago. I am so chuffed she has asked me to go with them to Paris.. I am really looking forward to a girly weekend and I want to wear some nice clothes.
I embarked on this diet on 6th January after being ill over Christmas with no appetite, I didn't want to start eating all the wrong things again!!
Lots of you will know me from my other blog slumber cards.. I know lots of you are also on the same journey so I thought I would start this blog to share any tips and recipe's with you.
I have lost 9lbs so far.. I weigh in on a Tuesday so I will let you know how I get on tomorrow.
I am going to share this recipe for sausage and butterbean hotpot tonight which I have just had for my tea this evening and is delicious
8 Large half fat sausages 400g
Low fat cooking spray
2 red papers, de-seeded and chopped
2 carrots peeled and chopped
1 400g can of chopped tomatoes with herbs and garlic
1 198g sweetcorn drained
1 400g butterbeans drained
2 Vegetable stock cubes ( I use 2 heaped tsp of Swiss vegetable bullion)
Grill the sausages until they are browned on all sides.
When cool enough to handle slice into bite size pieces
Spay a large lidded pan with low fat cooking spay and fry the peppers and carrots for 4-5 mins
Add the tomatoes, butterbeans, stock cubes with the sausages add 16floz water.
Bring to the boil and simmer for 25mins until carrots are tender
I remove the lid for 5-7 minutes towards the end to thicken the sauce.
For any of you doing weightwatchers this makes 4 serving at 3.5 points per serving and for anyone else who is interested approx 257 cals per portion
Hope you enjoy
