its the weekend
ok this is the third time of trying to add an entry to my blog...Our PC appears to be playing up. I suppose we really could do with another but will have to wait, a new pc is way down on the priority list..
This last week has been glorious weather wise, it's not been baking hot, it's just been sunny and warm, i use the word 'warm' loosely though.. :-)
The week of dieting has gone ok, i seem to have hit a plateau, not quite sure what to do about it either. I have stepped up the running a little, running 5 miles 3 times a week and have been sticking to my diet, but the weight stayed the same last week. Could it be that i am building muscle from increasing my running maybe, do i need to change my diet? Who knows, guess for now i'll stick it out for a couple of weeks and take it from there.
Food for Today..
pitta pocked with hummus and salad
Not decided yet... feel like being bad, really really bad..but then again!!
Perhaps i'll stick tooo the following
Pork in sweet & Sour sauce
1 oz brown rice
4 oz's pork cut into strips
1 tsp cornflour
1 tsp of soy sauce (dark or light, doesn't matter)
1/2 tbs tomato puree
1 tsp of sugar
1 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 tbs white wine vinegar
1 clove of garlic
1 piece of root ginger about 0.5 inch
Place port in a bowl along with the cornflour and soy sauce. Mix together and set aside to marinade
prepare the sauce by mixing the vinegar, tomato puree and sugar. Set aside
Heat the oil in a non stick frying pan and when hot add the pork and brown all over, for about 5 mins. Set aside
in the same pan, fry the garlic and ginger for around 30 secs. Add around 2floz's water, bring to a boil and return the pork to the pan. Add the sauce mixture and pineapple and allow to cook over a low heat for around 15 mins, more water can be added to prevent from drying out..
finally....serve with the brown rice and enjoy
Don't forget to drink plenty of water.. about 1.5 litres a day.. yes it's boring unless it has hops or grapes with it but drink it anyway..
