So here I am again. Sneaking in and pretending I've not been away for a month. I was ill for two weeks which left me with no get up and go in me so that's when I stopped blogging then it did not enter my mind to blog as I was quite busy. Did not even read blogs much as I didn't have time to go on my lap top. Anyway, things have settled down a lot now so thought I'd make an appearance.

So glad the weather is on the turn. I think I can safely say spring is finally here. A little sun and a bit of warmth can really lift your spirits. My mind is focused on eating healthily and I am eating a heck of a lot of salads at the moment which I eat when the rest of the family are tucking into yummy high calorie meals. Made a variation of these for tea. I added softened onions instead of the spring onion and added a bit of cream and some milk instead of the soured cream. I also added a generous handful of cheese. The verdict was they needed more onion and more cheese but were nice. A bit of tweaking me thinks to get the perfect souffled potato.


  1. Hi Karen
    Glad you are feeling better. It can take it out of you in lots of ways when we are ill.
    Your menu looks lovely. I would like to re-create some of the M&S salads! they are my weakness and if you have a weakness it may as well be a salad!!!?. I might try & start looking into making my own like them. Mind you might leave that to you , you sound like you are good creating yummy things. Feel free to post a salad on your blog! My two favourites are the super food nutty salad and the waldorf or Rudolph salad I call it! I am still trying to lose that stone I seem to cart round with me every year. Glad you are back. I know what it is like sometimes life gets in the way xx

  2. Sorry to hear you've been ill, I hope you're feeling much better now. Those potatoes look delicious. We had jacket potatoes for tea last night but they didn't look quite so appetising as yours. I'm trying to shed a few pounds again.
