We had a busy wee Father's day which included the following:
Football, birthday parties, pubs, games of pool, bike trials, almighty momentous spectacular tantrums x 2 from both kids, near motherly breakdown, park, out for dinner, WINE, home, Mr Don had a game of golf, jammies, DVD, kids in bed by 630pm, well they were up partying at 5am.

I am finding out however that when we are busy from the off, I am not the best at sorting out breakfast or lunch, I suppose it is just easy to grab a sandwich etc on route, I need to figure out some options on the run I think.
We did go out for dinner, I chose a nice grilled chicken salad and had a glass of wine, LARGE glass of wine (see opening paragraph).
So once the babies were in bed, I felt the need to snack, I was kind of hungry and could have easily gone for crisps, bread, chocolate, more wine even.
But you know what, I am really serious to finishing my weight loss journey so I made an emergency snack using what I had left on my healthy options and what I knew was free. Spiced wedges, cheese and onion chutney on toast, carrots and dips. It was a bit of a mis match of a meal but I really enjoyed it.
It is also Sunday that I make the plan of meals for the week ahead, I do this even if I was not dieting, I find it helps keep costs down and its a great way to cook cleaner and from fresh, I always put it up on my heart board to see what we are having at a glance.
This is this weeks menu, again all slimming world. I am having a Chinese on Friday (my very lucky husband is playing golf at Gleneagles) and I am going to have a wee treat, I will syn for it and I will chose well and I will eat it all myself!
So first of the list this week is our Mexican feast, we have moved away from flour tortillas and now use lettuce leaves, its is a great change, it tastes so good, very clean and healthy option to Fajitas.
I also tried making my own fajita mix and it worked really well, find the recipe here, own salsa and used the blended cottage cheese pots again as our dip. Serve this with spiced potato wedges and its a great meal.
