As I have lots of projects in the "in progress" stage i feel i have very little to share. But then you start to tippity type, and i realise i have lots of stuff to bore/share (you) with.

I had a wonderful day with Annie and the children, and many photos later of Addie. Here are a few of my favs. (unedited as CS2 is laying up today grrrr)

The first bit of news is I lost 3lbs today, so feeling pretty happy about that. Purchased a new cook book as well, continuing my quest to find scrummy, family friendly low fat dishes for all to enjoy!

Tonight's offering was homemade fishcakes, with homemade salsa, green beans and broccoli. Pretty scrummy although i will make some alterations and add some fresh dill and parsley to the mix and up the qty of fish next time.

For those that asked about last nights Lamb tangine, it was delish and i have popped the recipe here for anyone to enjoy

Lamb Tangine

14oz lean lamb leg steaks, chunked
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 onion finely chopped
1 clove of garlic crushed
400g apricots in juice drained and chopped (place juice to one side)
1 lamb or beef stock cube
1 tbsp of clear honey
1 tsp Orange blossom water (optional)

to serve
cous cous
fresh coriander

1. Place the first 6 ingredients and stock cube in a pan, season then pour the juice and just enough water to cover the meat. bring to the boil, turn down to a simmer for 1 1/2 hours - 2 hours until you have a rich sauce
2. add the apricots and cook for a further 20 mins. Finally stir in the honey, sprinkle over the orange blossom water and serve with cous cous and fresh coriander
3. Enjoy!

I received an email today with a layout attached, that moved me to tears and jubilation. I am not going to say much more before you take a look at it here
Some of you may remember i ran my first 5k in memory of my dad who passed away September 2006 after a 15 year battle with MS. I raised over £1500 for MS and ran the 5k in a PB. This layout has made me remember this amazing day ( that i am doing again this year) and that i must record these memories too.

I will leave you with a reject 365 photo, lol. Check out the 365 blog for the daily prompts
