I have come to the conclusion that I am not a blogger - certainly not a consistent one! I love spending time here and sharing with my SP friends, but sometimes, life is just too short to retype the experience! So apologies for my increasingly fr... Read more
A few random picks from Taiwan
I had a brilliant time and felt so blessed to be able to see my two good friends again - it had been many years since we last saw each other face to face. I stuck to a mostly veggie diet but did venture into the local cuisine quite a bit and wit... Read more
Back from my epic journey, mostly recovered from nasty flu/cough and Singaporean skin creepies (more later) and somewhat rested.
What an amazing opportunity but really glad to be back home! Not sure I would recommend so many airports and s... Read more
Easy Peasy Quiche(y)
I just love quiche, it is so versatile and I haven't yet decided if I prefer it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, it works well with anything!
I love a slice of quiche with a small side salad, it just feels healthy eating it. After working out t... Read more
What an awesome week last week was! First the amazing opportunity career wise, then, just to add a few cherries to the cake, I win two tickets to a music festival held on Sunday and my DBF wins tickets to the musical Grease for Wednesday night -... Read more
My dear sparkers, I have been blessed with an incredible career opportunity and I wanted to share my excitement with you.
I have recently completed delivery of a very big IT project at work and was wondering what might be next, by 'day' job... Read more
I am fortunate enough to travel from time to time on business but despite making an effort, I always seem to gain a few additional kilos - not all due to water retention on long haul flights, I'm afraid! Due to unpredictable schedule... Read more
Veg lasagna (to die for, if I do say so myself!)
Its been a while since I posted a recipe (sorry DietSafari) or anything for that matter!
Made this veg lasagna in a moment of inspiration - loved the result and think you will too. It takes a little more effort than my recipes usually do, b... Read more
I've been around on SP for just about 3 months now and although my weight loss has not been as much or as fast as I would have liked, I HAVE lost a few kilos and DO fit better into a lot of clothes that I own and couldn't be seen in public befor... Read more
Spaghetti & meatballs
I felt like introducing a little meat into the week so instead of spaghetti with cheese & tomato, decided on spaghetti and meatballs last night. I was a little concerned about what that might do to my calorie count, but it turned out pretty well... Read more
Light curry sauce
I use this sauce to make egg curry - just pile some rice and a few hard / soft boiled eggs onto a plate and spoon over. DEAD easy and I think pretty tasty for a quick dinner. It makes quite a 'gentle' curry, so I wouldn't recommend using it with... Read more
This week's menu
Its been a while since I posted a menu entry and I thought it was about time. I've been slacking with planning ahead and can see the results in the sloooow progress I am making, although to be fair, I am still finding new old clot... Read more
Wow, did I have a naughty weekend of overeating and doing absolutely nothing - and it felt GOOD!
I was so proud of myself for not laying on the guilt when I went over my calorie count on both Saturday and Sunday. I didn't go to gym either! ... Read more
I should have known better
Somehow I feel as if I've been done in - badly, but really I should have known better. Still, I'm pretty peeved! ... Read more
I heart falafel
Found this recipe for falafel somewhere on the interwebs and tried it for the first time today. Yum, yum yum!
I served about 5 little balls in a pita bread with chopped onion, tomato and jalepeno and made a sauce of fat free yogurt (about 2... Read more
