Last night i made an apple chicken coconut curry. I loaded it with lots of green veges - I thought it was tasty but Gary said don't make it again :(2

Last week was my birthday and we just stayed home because Gary didn't feel well - so i made desert
it was too hard working out a low sugar base so we just had a crustless cheesecake
i used a weight watchers jelly - my unbaked cheesecake recepie uses a packet jelly (jello) instead of gilliten so it also doesn't have extra added sugar - just fruit

I've gained 10 pounds in one week, and this... THIS is to blame. German chocolate cake I made my fiance. I'm eating well, too well. Next is a pantry clean out, waste not!

Stuffed zucchini! The zucchinis are huge. This is a cookie sheet they are on (half sheet size). Each half is dinner for two so this picture was dinner for two nights. Each serving is 270 calories. Delicious! DH asked me to make another. Stuffed with ground beef, ground turkey breast, basmati rice, onions, garlic, and spices. Topped with cherry tomatoes and apple cider vinegar.

Got a dehydrator to dry some of the fruit I brought home. Did the first batch yesterday with just a few things to.see how it worked. IMG_20200912_220943057.jpg IMG_20200913_195646264.jpg

True! The local gardening group calls them marrows also. Absolutely delicious. I got several for $1 each when I went east of the mountains. Most people refuse to buy them so they go for low prices and the farmers are glad to see them go.

Its weird, my grandad was a great gardener and im sure he grew marrows but no one seemed to know how nice they were when eatten much smaller
last marrow i had was from the neighbour - it was a zuchinni that had got overlooked
i want to try stuffing the flowers but the slugs ate all my plants last year

Slugs got all my plants too. So frustrating!

I haven't tried the flowers, but have wanted to. The smaller and larger zucchinis are great. Each has yummy things you can do.

Rosh Hashanah dinner!

Brisket smoked at 300 degrees with pecan wood for 2 1/2 hours then slow braised in a bottle of dark red wine and some homemade beef stock for 9 hours. Served with mashed cauliflower and orange glazed carrots made with homemade dehydrated orange slices.

The challah is a saffron honey challah rolled into strips that get filled with apples, cinnamon, and honey. Kneaded homemade raisins into the dough this year too. Stands 8" in the center. Baked on 1/2 sheet pan.

Up until I mangled my finger in early August my diet had been pretty good, I was weighing around 160-165lb (I thought I was 180lb LOL). Since being off work I have been eating a lot more and have gone up to about 175lb.

Funny thing is I thought I was around 180lb while working and guessed I had gone up to 190lb when I went into the clinic for my follow up surgery on Wednesday. When I jumped on the scales and saw 175lb I was quite surprised and realised I must have been a lot lighter than I thought I was when I was working.

Your festive food looks terrific! Challah is fantastic! Shana Tova!
I bought house made brisket from Whole Foods and they supplied me round brioche that looks like round challah I saw on pictures. Will cook everything else myself, already started. Thank you for sharing!

I’ve lost about 7-8 lbs in the past month by eating less carbs with dh.We have been mainly substituting quinoa for rice and spaghetti squash for pasta. In these pictures: chicken tikka masala and brussel sprouts cooked with bacon (over quinoa). Second picture is my famous spicy jalapeño Pork chops and to balance out some of the fattier meals we have been having, lunch was a smoothie. All homemade.

Yum. Your spicy jalapeño pork chops look particularly delicious. They kinda remind of salt and pepper pork chops.
