No more baking for me
I have gained three kilograms in the past two weeks, I know why, all the baking I have been doing. Well, it's not just the baking, it's all the sampling of the cookies and cakes that I have been baking. Needless to say that there will be no more baking for me, unless for an occasion. Maybe I need to stitch my mouth, I definately need to stop and think before I put anything into my mouth. I have just written a food plan for this week, you see my biggest problem is leaving everything to the last minute, usually when I'm already hungry and then I eat whatever I can put together quickly. Living alone has done this, I don't need to plan meals for the week anymore, no family to cook for, well that has to stop. I don't like to eat as soon as I wake in the morning, I think this started when I used to get the kids ready for school, instead of gulpy something down while making school lunches I would wait until they had left in the morning. With this in mind I decided to make my breakfast something substanial and then have a bowl of soup or something small for lunch and then a small portion of fish, chicken or meat and vegetables or salad for dinner. Breakfast this morning was going to be mushrooms on toast until I was speaking to my son who said he had eggs, damn, now I want egg. My revision became mushroom, chopped spring onion, silverbeet, I sprayed some oil in a small pan cooked everything and then broke an egg into the middle, placed the lid over the pan to steam the egg . I wasn't sure it would taste good, but with some salt and pepper it was yummy.
