Busy! Busy! Busy! Week 3 – Day 2

 What a beautiful day.  Spent the morning prepping lots of lovely food for this coming week and then spent the remainder of the day in the back garden.  Had stones delivered to create edging along the back of the garden.  It looks really nice.  Also rented a power washer to get peeling paint off paint on the side fence ready to repaint it. Actually crawled into bed at 9pm because we were so tired.

Made this delicious Jalapeno Popper Soup, nice size batch so there will be some for during the week too.  I love having leftovers in the fridge.  This soup is from Week 2 of the I Breathe I’m Hungry Menus.  They are so good.

Also made the Jalapeno and Cheddar Cauliflower Muffins.  I must admit Melissa’s picture above looked fantastic, but the riced cauliflower left me a little dubious!  But oh my goodness are these ever good.  I even had one for an afternoon snack too.  Looking forward to eating more of these during the week.  As a side note I love the smell of Coconut Flour.

When I first saw Melissa’s picture for this recipe, the dark pizza crust did not look particularly appetizing.  But I know if I am going to change my eating habits, then I need to change my approach to cooking too.  A new product in my cupboard is flax meal and here was my first chance to use it.  This was delicious.  I am not a pizza fan really.  I don’t like the doughy crust.  This I liked.  Looking forward to leftovers of this! Family dinner tomorrow so I made Raspberry Dessert Bar for my daughter and I, together with Chocolate Raspberry Trifle for everyone else.

I decided I would have a piece of this tonight, I was keen to try it out.  Ooh this was good with a nice dollop of whipping cream on top.  Sometimes when I look a what I am eating, I wonder am I really trying to lose weight.  Two weeks and 7.2 pounds tells me it is.
