What I ate this week…

It was a taster session in group this week, and I forgot to take stuff along (my brain has been AWOL this week – too much to remember with appointments left, right, and centre!), but everything that other people brought was gorgeous, as usual!

I seem to have had a bit of a thing for curry and salmon this week…

The last of the soup for lunch. The teriyaki salmon is a quick and easy dish I love doing, I just pop the chunks of salmon in a pan with the soy sauce and a little sweetner (or you can use honey, and syn it), and cook the salmon right there in the mixture till it thickens then I pop it in the wok with the veg I’ve started stir frying to finish off. It’s quick, simple, and very, very tasty!

I forgot till after I’d eaten the sausage roll that is already used 4 syns at lunchtime! Ah well, it happens sometimes, I guess.

I love how asparagus works with eggs – so lovely! And I’ve kinda been in a curry mood this weekend. This one was home made a while back, and portioned up for the freezer.

I forgot to take a pic of my sushi at lunch time, so I used an old pic. I LOVE making my own sushi – it’s so easy to make, especially as I have a shushi bazooka and a rolling mat – LOL! The salmon at dinner was dipped in beaten egg, then in a mixture of Smash, herbs, and spices ( then dipped it back in the egg and back in the Smash mix a second time to properly coat it), then I popped it in a little baking dish, spritzed it with a little FryLight, and baked it till it was golden. The coating was deliciously crisp and tasty! Technically, it’s a tweak to use Smash this way, but as it’s a one in a while thing, and the amount used was so small, I don’t assign syns to it.

HEB: 2 x HiFiLight bars

BREAKFAST: Lemon curd and raspberries
Lemon zest and juice, raspberries (S), quark, eggs (P), sweetener (F)

TREATS: 2 x HiGi light bars (B), Yoghurt (F), Peperami (4), Crisps (6), Options hot choc (1.5)
TOTAL SYNS: 14

The potatoes at dinner were tasty, but I didn’t leave them in quite long enough for my taste – I think next time I’ll par-boil them before baking! Dead easy though – mix the quark with a beaten egg, a little milk (from HEA choice), and some seasonings according to your preferences, then layer up with the thinly sliced potatoes and leeks, and top with a little cheese (from HEA choice) and whack in the oven till the potatoes are tender and the cheese is golden. I shared mine with my eldest kid, who loved it, even if I thought the potatoes were still a little firm.

I forgot to post my Thursday menu on the group and now I can’t find the photos (I must have accidentally deleted them), and I can’t remember what I did 5 minutes ago, never mind what I ate on Thursday. It was definitely on-plan though, I promise!
