So, the first week of #dryjanuary has been completed successfully, whoop whoop 😀 (anyone else doing it too?). I'm not a huge drinker these days but over Christmas I did drink a bit more PG (pinot grigio!) than usual, so a detox was much needed. Unfortunately the wine has given way to extra cake instead - MUST STOP EATING CAKE! Difficult when I'm developing some new cake recipes for the blog and have cakes like this Vanilla and Raspberry Bundt Cake looking at me from the kitchen table 24/7. Wish me luck!
To counter the excessive cake eating I’m back on the cross trainer for 30 minutes a day, which I try and squeeze in first thing in the morning if I can. I’ve also cut down on the carbs and cheese this week after WAY too many Brie and Bacon Panini’s over Christmas. I do love my panini press but it’s not doing my waistline any favours. But nor is the cake!
Ah well, on to the meal plan and this weeks dishes are based around things I need to use in the freezer. I found some lamb steaks buried under bags and bags of petit pois (bit of a food hoarder me), which must have been in the freezer for nearly a year so it was about time I made them into something tasty! What's on your meal plans this week?
