I did a bit of experimenting in the kitchen yesterday…thing about experiments is they can end well or badly….my dairy free rice pudding was a step too far…..
As my diet is meant to be free of many nice things – dairy being one of them I thought I would try making the pudding with rice milk. YUK. We ate it but I shall never do it again….however porridge made with rice milk is OK. Who an I kidding it tastes like cardboard.
My neighbour Sam made gorgeous heart shaped shortbread and brought some round…but as it contained white flour (NO) sugar (definitely not) and butter (Bad) I shouldn’t have let any pass my lips – I ate 4 biscuits – as I didn’t want to offend :)
Stella had been over in the morning bringing with her some homemade healthy bars – you know the kind which had sugar, butter and golden syrup in. I forced it down – delicious. We decided over all as they also contained nuts, seeds and dried fruit that they could possibly have some healthy benefits to them – kidding ourselves naturally.
Today being St Valentine’s day I feel I should make some effort and bake a cake but I don’t really want it in the house calling to me….not sure if there is any such thing as a healthy cake…using wholemeal flour instead of white won’t transport it into a super food – I guess the only healthy cake is one you can say no too!
Thank you once again for all the kind words about Harry’s recent trauma….yesterday he was still very nervous not wanting to go out but today we have made great progress by approaching his walk from a different direction ….he was even OK when a beagle sniffed him so I’m hoping the worst is over.
