Imagine the anticipation, having fallen asleep clutching, Rosemary Conley Weight Loss Plan, whilst awaiting the return of my other half from badminton, I awake to the first day of my 1200 calorie-controlled diet…..mmm….coupled with the damp fog outside…not a great kick start to the day. After a quick perusal of the Motivational Thought for the Day (quick precis; love your quirky bits).
Jensen lent his support by eating the remnants of my Christmas chocolates as I cooked the Rosemary Conley breakfast diet Day 1 (see right). This was actually a hit. Yummy and being dry-fried had three great advantages.
1. I was able to use up one of the short dated eggs at the back of the fridge thereby mitigating Ian’s wrath when he next does his eco-warrior waste audit thing.
2. As the cooker is ancient and the grill lighter doesn’t work, I was still able to have a “fry-up” using a technique adopted from my short-lived days in the Girl Guides. Tin foil in a wok. It works.
3. Zero fat added. Therefore it must be very good for me (see RC).
Actually, there’s a fourth. Virtually no washing up. It has to be a winner.
