After my visit to the Naturopath on Wednesday, I've been feeling a bit off. I slept really well Wednesday night but Thursday I got a fuzzy headache which lasted all day and then had another one yesterday. I felt almost jet-lagged, wanting to sleep and had heavy eyes. I came home, took some Panadol and slept from 5.30 - 6.30pm. At least that got rid of my headache.
My neck feels quite good and I have been doing the stretching exercises she suggested for my hips (leg lifts done in bed before my feet touch the floor). Not too sure about the Magnesium I am taking - I had extreme um, tummy rumbles and had to do several restroom dashes - I put that nicely, didn't I? I hope this settles down otherwise I will discontinue that, we'll see what the weekend brings.
Thursday night I tried another flavour sachet in my chicken stir fry. These are all the veggies I put in it...
The flavour was good but yikes, it was hot, hot hot, for a 'medium' rated sauce!
Quick and easy but you'd have to like peppery hot!
When I was growing up, my mum always made this 'salad dressing' in the summer. No such thing as a fancy tossed salad with 8 ingredients back then, just iceberg lettuce, quartered tomato and some cheddar cheese, maybe.
Boiled Salad Dressing
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp dry mustard powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tbspn corn flour
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and heat gently, stirring continuously. Slowly increase heat until mixture just comes to the boil. Dressing should coat the back of a spoon when done. Store in clean jars and refrigerate. Consume within 2 weeks.
Makes a nice coleslaw dressing (white cabbage, grated carrot, sliced red onion, diced celery, grated cheddar cheese and a small can of pineapple pieces and half the juice and dress with this dressing).
We had lamb parcels for dinner (purchased at our locally owned supermarket). Diced lamb with spices, sundried tomatoes and fetta cheese encased in a puff pastry lattice. Bake for 40 minutes along with foil wrapped potatoes) and you have dinner (good choice last night)! I went a bit overboard with the dressing!
August 8 was International Cat Day (who knew?) so I did a collage of Bonnie, our moggie! She's 7 1/2 now, quite a record for us! She is a great mouser and loves to show off her catches to me. She brings mice into our garage then bangs up against the door so I go to investigate. Then she gleefully plays with the mouse before 'disposing' of it! She is an outdoor cat but is always beautifully clean.
