11th October
Lunch (very late)
1/2 sausage roll
Lucozade Sport

Lasagna - a 'lite' version of my cheesy delight

Serves 6 Seriously hungry people (or 12 semi restricted bandits)
900g beef mince
1 can of pureed plum tomatoes
2 carrots grated
2 onions
2 cloves of garlic
150g cheese
400mls skimmed milk
2 teaspoons of English (yellow) mustard
mixed herbs
salt and pepper
25g cornflour
21 Lasagna pasta sheets (you kight need more/less depending on how you layer it)

Put the mince in a pan with 2 pints of water and bring to the boil (this removed the solid fattening lard so that you can get rid of it). In another pan add the 2 grated carrots and chopped onion and sweat off in some water too - not enough to cover, but enough so that it cooks without burning.
In another saucepan (yes there are a lot!) heat the milk and cornflour stiring continuously. When it has thickened, add the 1tsp mustard and 3/4 of the grated cheese and stir vigorously then set aside.

Drain the mince, then put it back in the pan. Add 1 tsp mustard, herbs, salt, pepper and tomatoes and stir. Puree the carrot and onion mix and add to the mince. Mix it through and then begin layering mince/pasta sheets/mince/pasta sheets until its all gone. Finish with a layer or pasta.
Pour the sauce all over the top so that it is completely covered. Lay 3 thinly sliced tomatoes all over the top and then sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
Cook for 45 mins to 1 hour at 175oC until the top begins to brown

The result is this:

10th October
No brekkie - this is getting to be a habit!

Eggy bread

Quiche, coleslaw + salad
greek yoghurt with apricots and honey

More yoghurt as above :-)

todays cals: 1749

9th October
No brekkie, No lunch - we are going out tonight + not that hungry so why bother.

Dinner - Mushroom strogannof, rice and rye bread roll
Serves 4
loads of mushrooms (of differing varieties if you like/can be bothered)
400g (probably get away with less) of weight watchers low fat thick cream
4 tbsp olive oil (1 per person)
2 cloves of garlic
2 onions
1tbsp lemon juice
salt & pepper
rice to serve
stock (or a stock cube - but watch you dont add too much salt)

Fry the onion in the oil, and 250ml stock and reduce on quick heat. add muchrooms and stir. Add salt and pepper and the lemon juice and fry for a few minutes. It starts to get more fluid in the pan from the mushrooms cooking. When its obviously done, lots of watery stuff and the mushies are cooked turn off the heat, add garlic and stir. Add the cream and then the parsley.
Serve with rice and a roll

The reuslt: (by the way - I ate only half of this!!! LOL)

I also consumed milk, 2 litres of tropical fruit juice (and I have a nice swollen tastebud on my tounge because of it), 2 glasses of red wine and some Doritos at our freinds house for a cards evening.
Todays calories: 2110 - 79cals OVER my allowance, but this might not actually be the case as I had to take a best guess from memory on the juice nutritional label and erred on the side of caution. Anyway, for a night out, that is a total WIN!

prawn curry from takeaway
2 glasses red wine

a very over estimated 1800 cals... I truly don't know how much was in the curry, as you never really do, and I had to over estimate the cals in the mac and cheese because it was impossible to factor every last drop of calories.
