Monday Monday...

I can't believe it's nearly Monday already...cripes, where did that weekend go.??
My son had a week off from Uni so stayed with us for the duration, i so love having him home...but hate it when he goes back to Uni - :-( He's such good company (not that we see that much of him) and he's funny... he's such a windup artist..

We Went shopping today - Why is it when you have a few quid to spend on yourself you can't find anything, if i gave my daughter a few pounds and said go buy...she'd do it easily.. :-(
I shall try harder next weekend.

Food for Monday is...
20z Muesli
4 flozs milk
1 serving of low fat yoghurt

1 small bowl of soup (around 200ml)
2 slices of wholemeal bread
2 satsumas

Sweet & Sour Chicken
1/12 brown rice (uncooked rice)
3ozs chicken fillets cut into sliced
1lbs soy sauce
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tbsp of rice or balsamic vinegar
1tsp tomato puree
2 slices of pineapple - cut into chunks (i used tinned pineapple)
1 tsp cornflour
1 clove of garlic
1 tsp olive oil
1 piece of root ginger about 1/2 inch

Place chicken in a bowl and pour over the soy sauce, mix together and set aside to marinate
make the sauce by mixing the vinegar, tomato puree and sugar together and set aside.
mix the cornflour into the chicken with the soy mix.
heat half the oil in a non stick pan and brown the chicken all over. Set aside.
Heat the remaining oil and cook the crushed garlic and garlic for about 30 seconds, add a little water, bring to the boil and return the chicken to the pan.
Stir in the sauce mixture and with the pineapple and cook over a low heat for 15 mins or until chicken is cooked. Serve with the rice which of course you have cooked..

I have a large pot of low fat hummus that i need to eat so it's going to be the following for a couple of days..
1 1/2 tbs of hummus
1 1/2 ryvita
