I bought a spiralizer a while ago but hadn’t got around to using it yet. I went grocery shopping today and decided to test it out on some zucchini. Here is a pic of the spiralizer Continue reading
Today was exhausting! I cleaned 2 yachts and walked up and down the docks numerous times bringing up items I had pulled from the yachts to the office (sleeping bags, left over food, cleaning products, linens, towels, etc.) There is only so much I can cram into a cart at a time! I like spending time on the docks cleaning boats every now and then….it’s a good workout, but by the end of the day I am sooo wiped out!
Today has been a lovely slow day with me lazing around going through recipe books looking for something to bake. I decided to try a recipe from my wheat belly cookbook for cheddar cheese biscuits (scones).
I found this recipe recently for low-carb falafel. The main ingredient is cauliflower. I’ve been wanting to test it out for sometime now but always been too hungry after work to contemplate making something that could potentially be a disaster…..I tend to make things I know will be good when pressed for time.
It’s Tuesday night, supper is in the oven. Chloe and I are having a mushroom, leek and cauliflower casserole. Caleb will be home late tonight, he is working on a team project at school. Larry is away in Panama sorting out getting a yacht onto a ship for delivery to Canada. He has to take the yacht from Colon through the canal to Panama City.
Chelsea is home for the weekend and wants to try some of my favourite low-carb recipes. Last night we had roasted butternut quiche with caprese salad for supper. It’s a real favourite as it’s so quick and easy to make and has never flopped on me! I made ham and pea soup for the carnivores. This morning I made cheesy cauliflower ‘breadsticks’ for brunch. Chelsea is off to go and create something pottery at a studio downtown with her sisters and Caleb has gone to go check out the tennis club at Uvic. I booked an indoor court for this afternoon and we are all going to play some tennis together. Not sure what’s on the menu for tonight but I heard the girls talking about Cornish pasties for themselves. I think I will try something new for myself tonight. Will let you all know what I make and how it turns out 🙂
I have been craving a good curry. Before my low carb days I probably cooked a curry meal at least 3 times a week. Either potato curry, bean curry, veggie ground curry, or numerous variations of all of them! I love a good curry!
Woot woot! It’s Friday at last, really don’t know why I’m so excited, I have to go in to work tomorrow. Quick deckwash, then home to do stuff (like laundry and cleaning lol)
It’s been a tough week, seriously I lost a couple kilos, but not sure if that’s because I am usually inactive to the point of being lazy or if I actually worked my butt off!
Yay, it’s Wednesday and 2 days to go to the weekend 😉 Hopefully I won’t have to work at work, there is ALWAYS work at home however. Was on the docks again today freshening up and setting up a couple of yachts. Will be there again tomorrow… ‘big sigh’…a woman’s work is never done!
Dear family and friends, today has been an interesting day lol, I am exhausted. I got up bright and early, had a nice hot shower 🙂 and dropped Caleb off at a bus stop halfway to uvic on my way to work. So far, so good!
