Killing Two Birds With One Stone~
Tuesday, July 09, 2013
Don't worry animal lovers, I would never hurt a bird-it's a figure of speech.
In my house we all eat all different things. And believe me if I could change that-I would!! Dwayne eats pretty healthily, but he can get away with the piggy treat foods he eats as snacks. Because of his very strenuous job.
Sammy, my lovely 16 year old eats everything that is bad for her. She is in a bad emotional state right now. She is totally not looking after herself,and won't let me tell her that she is not looking after her health. She has put on about thirty kilos in about three years. She won't eat her veges, and no matter how I try to tell her to she will not listen. She loves cooking with cheese or pasta or fried things.
And when she cooks pasta she uses a lot of cheese. I try to get her to use less, but no matter what I say she won't listen. And with her emotional state so fragile, I do have to tread carefully. So tonight when I was about to cook tea, Sammy asked me to cook chips with the mince which I was going to make into patties. Dwayne won't eat mince made into a stew. So I decided I would try and make Samantha a pasta dish out of the mince. I managed to sneak a little grated carrot, onion and a tiny bit of pumpkin in. And I gave her a meat patty with the pasta and mince dish. And she ate it-hurray !! I was hoping she would eat it without detecting the veges in it. And why I titled the blog two birds with one stone, I managed to give Sammy a pasta dish without loads of cheese, plus I got veges down her. I know I only put a small amount of veges in, but I didn't want her guessing they were in there. So it's a start.
Her mood is very low at the moment, and she is very sensitive. She said a few days ago she will start working on her weight soon. So of course I am hoping she will.
I had baked fish with pumpkin,cabbage,potato,carrot with a cheese sauce mix. It is probably lower calorie than I could make the sauce.
Now, Sammy and Dwayne are calling me to watch Shortland Street. So that's all for now.
I hope you are having a healthy week
