Morning, all!

Weigh in today - another 3 lbs off!  Woo hoo!

Today's food plans:
B:  muesli and yogurt
L:  cheesy omelette and salad
D:  turkey curry, rice; fruit yogurt
Ss:  apples

From the freezer:
The curry and the rice

The frugal factor:
Really good today as the curry was made with leftovers from the Christmas turkey and my lovely dad paid for that, just as he did the muesli
The cheese is 'normal' cheese as I finished off the low fat cheese yesterday (I'm just having less of it) as I couldn't get on with it.  I have used up two packs but it doesn't behave like 'proper' cheese.  That means it is a bit cheaper, especially the supermarket's own.

I added a 'refinement' to my cheesy sardines on toast.  I can't spread butter on the toast but I did spread marmite on it instead and wow - it was delicious!  So now the mixture is sardines in tomato sauce, a squidge of garlic, a bit of horseradish sauce, a bit of the grated cheese and a squidge of - salad cream!  It changes every time, doesn't it?
Mix it all together well, marmite on the toast, then the fish spread, then the rest of the grated cheese and back under the grill to melt the cheese and heat it all up.  Oh, it was lovely!


  1. I love Marmite, but can't say I really fancy the idea of it with fish! Each to their own though lol. We don't mind the taste of the low fat Cheddar, but it just doesn't melt properly, does it?

    1. No, really not great for hot dishes. I was surprised how good the marmite tasted, to be honest. I love that umami flavour anyway and it gave that!

  2. Joy, I forgot to congratulate you on yet another great loss....well done! (You'll be child size at this rate lol).

    1. LOL - I wish! I have lost more than I still have to use though, which is nice. Thanks, Sooze, you're always so encouraging. It really helps.
