Yesterday was sports day and it was not a nice day. It was freezing, my hands were numb, things went badly and I couldn’t wait to get home! When I did get home I found that my hands and feet did not want to thaw out so I did some dishes, put on my lovely warm slipper boots and put the oven on.
In the winter my Mum suggested that to stay warm, in my very cold flat, I should close the kitchen door and bake. So I’ve been doing that more 🙂 We all grew up with an Aga in our kitchen so were used to huddling round that when it was cold.
I looked for a good recipe for using blueberries I bought at the weekend and found a healthy one that I adapted a bit.
They are the healthiest muffins I’ve ever had.
I preheated the oven to 220c
In a bowl I mixed together the dry ingredients:
and then stirred in the wet ingredients:
I then folded in a cup of washed fresh blueberries. There was enough mixture for 12 muffins. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes. Mine were done in 20, I have a fan assisted oven.
They are by no means the most attractive muffins I’ve ever eaten, but they were very tasty 🙂
The best thing about these muffins is that there was no sugar high/crash. I ate one and loved it but did not feel the need to go for another. I made my dinner straight after.
Chicken stir-fry with black bean sauce and brown rice.
After dinner I went round to my parents as my brother was coming home from Glasgow for a couple of nights. They were just sitting down to dinner so I had a small amount of their dinner.
Chilli on white rice. I love rice 😀 I never eat beef, that was the first time I’ve eaten it in 20 years. I just don’t really like the taste but I think I need to keep trying things, I don’t believe in cutting things out of our diets unless we are allergic or it doesn’t make us feel good.
I’m not eating off a vent, I photograph my breakie on the heater as it’s a nice warm place to rest them while I take photos. I eat breakfast in bed with my laptop and lightbox 😀
Breakfast today was a big bowl of cereal, I didn’t have time to make porridge before work and it was what I fancied.
A banana (photo of banana guard for amusement of a certain polar bear who has the sense of humour of an 11 year old boy 😉
Red Grapefruit 🙂
A wholewheat bagel with marg and marmite, a yoghurt and one of my muffins. The rest of the muffins are in the freezer to be taken out when I want a treat. I’m not sure how they will freeze but we’ll see!
Dinner will be baked tofu and sweet potato discs I think, then I’m over to my parents again as we’re having a movie night 🙂
Happy Humpday everyone 😀
