Memory dump – September 2014

 

It’s amazing how many of the photos I took in September are of food!  It’s easy to see how preoccupied I’ve been with sticking to my diet and feeding the whole family more healthily.

This is my favorite Slimming World recipe to date.  BBQ pulled pork, done in the slow cooker.  Ridiculously easy to make but oh so good.  It’s been a big hit with the whole family.

I took Lily for a back to school haircut and had a shock to see how grown up she looks. Scary stuff.

I really enjoyed this risotto that I cooked from a recipe I saw on Instagram.  Risotto is one of the ultimate comfort foods and you get to have loads of parmesan for a HexA.

And this was the month I discovered Overnight Oats.  35g oats mixed with yogurt and (optional) chopped or frozen fruit and left overnight.  I am seriously addicted to these oats…thick, smooth and creamy.   2014-09-15 10.16.30

I look forward these most mornings.

A little treat I shared with Mum while out for lunch with a friend (Eugene).  And I enjoyed EVERY LAST MOUTHFUL!

More fruit, more yogurt (there’s a theme here) and sprinkled chocolate.

I started a new baby blanket for a friend’s newborn.  I’m enjoying this pattern that my Mum came up with and I’m making good progress.
