This week at my place...

These are the corellas that roost in the gum trees near our house. Noisy buggers, they squawk and squawk and poop on our nice grey roof and leave fluffy feathers everywhere!

Sunset on Tuesday night...
~
They have completely stripped the top of this tree bare...

This is a mob of corellas about to fly in out the back of our place then make their roosts in our trees.

A beautiful sky after a hot day of 36C...

~
Still lots of juicing going on here...
~
It really does make you feel good. This lot had pink lady apples in it and it was lovely and sweet.

Easy dinner after my Weight Watchers meeting - Chicken Phad Thai with the help of a flavour sachet (sinful!). Woohoo! I am 300gms lighter than at my last weigh in on December 21st. I came through Christmas and New Year without gaining any weight! It really has motivated me to keep going. I have lost 3.6 kgs since November 1, 2011. Slow but steady.

CHICKEN PHAD THAI
So into a wok, 1 teaspoon olive oil and one onion - toss for 2 minutes then add mushroom, fresh corn kernels and broccolini...
~
Let them cook away for 2 minutes then add 1/2 cup water and put the lid on to steam them.
Then I removed them from the wok and browned off 500gms chicken breast...
~
Yum, it's looking good!
~
This sachet had no artificial colouring or preservatives and I was in a hurry (really, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and a bit of honey and lime would do the trick too). Pour in the sauce and combine.
I used rice noodles so throw them in too...
~
Ta dah! Dinner in under 30 minutes.

What's happening in your part of the world?

  1. Well done for not gaining weight over Christmas, there are so many temptations it is hard not to nibble.

  2. The birds look pretty, but I guess you don't feel that way about them then there are so many doing their thing all over your place! That food sure looks yummy!

  3. The Corella's are very naughty, but so darn cute! The photo's are stunning. Congratulations to Brianna. So glad she isn't having problems after her bout with Glandular Fever awhile back. Well done on the weight you've lost. Slow and steady is good. More likely to stay off!

    Cheers,
    Lisa
