Wah, been there done that. I could def stuff my face for days with those chicken tenders . . . . :P

They were very yummy. Would be good to bring to a potluck with homemade mayo.

7.15am - Which came first the chicken or the egg? Leftover chicken tenders , tsp of mayo, 2 boiled eggs (with mustard salt). black coffee

11.30am - cm coffee

12.30pm - thai red fish curry , with cilantro & coconut flakes on top. 4 prunes

059a9b42922511e2a3d822000a1f9be5_6.jpg

4pm - tiny bit of cheese & romesco sauce

5.3pm - Island pork tenderloin, roast (in goose fat) baby potatoes, green beans.

The pork recipe is not paleo involving a good bit of brown sugar - not that you eat that much of it - it all melts off into the pan...I don't know how the recipe ended up on my paleo pinterest board, must edit. But it was very tasty.

I've said it before, but daaaamn all the meat looks like for cookbook cover. Making stew with the same name, but from different site.

Did you swim to the gym? Workout before workout...

:lol: I worked out from home. Hope your version of stew turned out well. I really liked ours

So to today...

1pm - I find it really hard to find somewhere un-bready for lunch so was excited to find this new place, Tolteca, which seems to be closely based on an American chain :ph34r:

I got the burrito bowl - white rice, grilled peppers, barbacoa, pico de gallo, lettuce & I paid extra for some nice guac. €8.50 and pretty substantial

My belly felt progressively worse after yesterday evening's post :(

A new week!

8am - 1 slice bacon chooped & fried with spring onions & cherry tomatoes, 2 eggs broken in on top. yummo. black coffee.

60cc225a952811e2a84922000a1f8c0f_6.jpg

1.30pm - fried red onion & spinach, 2 lamb loin chops (reduced to clear so had to have 2 ;) ), romesco sauce. Black coffee...and :wacko: 1 inch square of darned birthday cake. I am weak.

d0c30524955011e28f4222000a1fb75e_6.jpg

6pm - roast mix of potatoes, onion, broc, carrots with evoo & balsamic. Johnny's meatloaf. It was nice - but too much salt for me...and maybe the recipe used fresh thyme? I used dried and it was pretty pungent. Made 2 loaves and put one, uncooked, in the freezer. Followed by clementine

So I survived the day without "sugar" but I obviously replaced it with fruit quite heavily...better but not great. Oh and my daughter totally mortified me today - we were at the doctors and I was asking her about whether giving up sugar would help Lily's condition and she said she thought it was a good idea to cut it was back as it was so addicitive, I told her I had given up sugar almost 16 mths now, at which Lily piped up "Mammy, you had cake, yesterday and on Sunday!!" :rolleyes:

So funny! "Intelligence service" is not her dream career clearly :lol: :lol: :lol:

3 coffees and to bed by 10 pm? Wow.

Yeah "secret" service she's not! 3rd coffee was a decaff, but even if it wasn't I'd probably still be fine, it'd have to be after dinner time to keep me up I reckon.

Can't get to my usual Tues morning yoga class because of kids school break, but there is a class at 8pm tonight...But I'm so sleepy....and still have to do the dishes....Hmmmmm.

Ps I got new glasses ( I wear them driving) today - in the mail! from www.goggles4u.com - so cheap! Lily says I look very smart in them :)

My husband keeps telling me I should go to the evening class at the gym, they have some fun ones. But frankly after being up since 5:20 the idea of working out at 7:30 pm for an hour is so...not....appealing....

Your glasses look cute!

Thanks Krista, I am going to go, what I'd be doing in that time slot would be sitting on the couch online while ds plays x-box. If I go to yoga it'll be nearly his bedtime when I get back and I can chill out with a nice cup of herabl tea and watch my shows :)

Muahah smart plan!

Dinner picture is epic. Totally stealing zuchinni boats idea. I've done the same with eggplant, but never thought of courgette :o Did you use sharp spoon edge? How does it work?

First glasses look like Chanel, I swear.

:lol: Exercise as childcare avoidance!

For the courgettes (ah my fellow Euro!) I used a melon baller. A very old (at least 30years!) melon baller that we had at home when I was growing up and I took when my parents sold up.

Thanks for compliment re glasses, esp as they only cost €6!
