Prawns on the Barbie
Well Makybe Diva didn't let me down! My Dear Son came to lunch and brought me my winnings. (I try to only have a small flutter as there is gambling blood pumping through my veins and I refuse to let myself turn into a gambler - everything in moderation remember! I do enjoy it though).
So I have bought some prawn and scallop kebabs to have tonight on the BBQ. It is so hot here 25 degrees! Believe me, we are not used to it! We will eat outside, so some prawns and a cold wine should be nice. I mainly drink McGuigans Black Label Red. I tried it when we went to the Hunter Valley. It can be served chilled and it is the only red wine I can drink without getting a migraine. The man at the Vineyard told me to try it and he almost guaranteed I wouldn't get a headache. I tried it and was headache free so consequently, as I love the taste and love being able to have a cold wine, it has become my favourite.
I just walked down and bought the kebabs from our local fishmonger. They have very fresh fish. On the way back I called into Coles and bought some Eskimo Pies for a treat for DH. I spotted some Bulla chocolate Light Ice Cream Packs of 8 sticks and thought I would try them. They only work out to be 1.3 points each.
I just had one and it was very yummy. A tiny bit sweet for me, but certainly tasty. (Sweeter than chocollo - I love Chocollo!) Now I won't feel like tucking into an Eskimo Pie when DH has one.
Guess what!! There was a lady at the gym this morning! She was on the treadmill when I arrived and left after about 20 minutes. She was music free until I arrived, but said she didn't mind Suzy Quatro, so I turned it on. It was such a shock to have another body in the gym with me! Anyway I coped.
