That was me this morning. Flailed about for twenty minutes trying to put a fruit and flapjack breakfast in front of the kids. Made them drinks and sorted vitamins and then hid in the bathroom. After a few minutes I realised it stank of cats in there, found an empty upturned litter tray that one of them (Jasper) had weed in a few times, cleaned that out and then did the whole bathroom. Once the smell of bleach hit my nostrils I was awake and off.
Cleaned through the kitchen, got laundry hung and more on, dishwasher cleaned and filter washed out. Then cracked on with the humpday food making session..
- Baked a tray of banana flapjack.
- Prepared dough for ciabatta loaves.
- Made choco-banana seed muffins.
- Got a ham on to slow cook with ginger, to go with the loaves for tomorrow.
- Made a gluten free Quiche!
I have never made quiche before, and was a bit nervous. But I got the halflings to help me and it turned out really well!
Using a recipe I found on BBC goodfood - Gordon Ramsay's Rocket, Mushroom & Bacon Quiche I substituted gluten free flour.
Using the ingredients listed, the quiche would be 150 propoints. I tweaked it, using semi skimmed milk, cheddar, low fat creme fraiche and a low cal spray to cook the veg/in the flan case. Using the spray instead of 6 tablespoons of olive oil saved 18 pp alone!
My version was 96 propoints for the whole quiche. Cut into 12 servings it's only 8 propoints a serving ^_^ and really yummy.
By about 4pm I felt really tired again. Sat down with a cup of tea and nearly dozed off as the kids played. Had to get up and pep-talk myself into doing something to stay awake. Drew fireworks pictures with black paper and chalk with the smalls, and decided that tonight I *had* to do a run, regardless of whether at gym or not. My body was *wilting* from lack of activity.
By the time Sam got home at 7pm, I had a headache coming. Took some Anadin with dinner (YUM) and chugged a pint of water.. was ready for the gym at 8pm, and my dad said he wanted to be quick so I was even more determined to do my c25k run and weights, and do cardio circuit tomorrow morning.
