Kel - Eat your heart out!
Beef and red wine sausages - made by me, with the help of my new George Foreman mincer and sausage attachment!
I don't actually like sausages much. I am always wary of what is in them. So, now I can make my own! I minced some lovely beef from the butcher and added some secret herbs and spices and a large dash of red wine and the result was delicious. Gluten free, low fat and extra tasty! I haven't quite mastered the size issue yet, but the taste is there. I will try chicken or pork next time, or maybe even vegetables.
Thanks to Dear Daughter, I have my knitting mojo back. I made these fingerless gloves and am now making a plain purple pair. Purple seems to be my colour this winter. I bought a pair of purple boots and a purple bag. I just stopped myself from buying a purple coat and opted for a steele grey instead, but purple looks nice with grey or black.
I still can't exercise. My shingles (I guess that is what has caused it) have left me with aching hips, knees, shoulders and neck. Not much of my body is left to exercise, so consequently I have no desire to move unnecessarily. It takes me a while to get going from a sitting to standing position and then I have pain when I walk.
My trampoline, treadmill, crosstrainer and exercise bike are all collecting dust and it upsets me to looks at them, or think about them. I am concentrating on knitting, reading, cooking and trying to eat healthily. Meanwhile - 2 kilos later - I am just hoping to maintain my weight at this level without growing too much more until I can exercise again. I am going to the Doctor again on Tuesday (for what it's worth).
Enjoy your weekend everyone xx
