New recipes are the best!

Hey peeps! How ya doing?
I'm pretty good back has been better today but that's all I'm gonna say on the matter!

I woke up and started my day with a cup of hot water with fresh ginger slices and the other half of my grapefruit. Then I had to make my lunch and get ready for the work day. It was then time for my proper breakfast : )

Choco/Banana protein quinoa flakes topped with trail mix and tahini. This was thankfully a real tummy filler as no lunch til 2.30pm! But it was quite busy at work so the morning went quite quickly, thankfully!

Lunch was quinoa, red sweet pepper, parsnip and olives in a tomato and pepper sauce. I think quinoa is probably my favorite grain I love it any which way!

I then had cherry soya yogurt. I popped to the super market before work to get some ingredients and saw these, £1 for four!!!!! I thought it was only right to invest and it was well worth it they're delish, I can't wait to try the blueberry one!

Look what I won! We had a samsung rep come in and I got the best score on this silly phone game so the sweeties were mine I ate the black jack and fruit salad, oops! I had to stay late at work as people were still needing to be served when we had actually closed, I was not happy.
I finally got out about 6.30pm an hour after I usually finish and made the long walk home. Its actually not that far about 1 + 1/2 miles but when your hungry and its dark and cold it seems like a pretty long walk!

By the time I got home I was ravenous! I still managed to fix up a delicious meal though and boy was this a good dinner. Plus it was a NEW RECIPE ALERT! I made beef and cheese rice rolls with steamed veg and a tom sauce. So tasty and I'm finding new ways to get the meat back into my life!

Then pudding was in order same as yesterday kinda I had half a pot of protein mouse with yog, walnuts and raisins. Scrummy!

I've now just finished baking some delicious cookies for my cookie exchange! A few weeks ago the lovely steph of steph cows started a cookie exchange which I so wanted to be apart of but not living in the US thought I would miss out, Oh no I get to share some cookies! I asked steph if she had any interest from anyone in the uk to keep me in mind and guess what I was pared up with the lovely Linds from In Search of a Full Stomach. Our deadline is Saturday so baking was a priority tonight. I made some very tasty cookies for this lovely lady I just hope she likes them as much as I do! Obviously I tried one to make sure they were edible : )
I can't wait to try mine! I will post photos once they have been sent and received I don't want to ruin the surprise!

Right I need to get ready for bed I think so I'm ready for a good hour of Big Brother before snooze time, addict YES, care NO! he he he he he
