Oooh... Sucked in by Juicing!

I said I didn't want a juicer. I was adamant about it. It would be more clutter in my kitchen, an expense I could do without, a gadget I was lose interest in, and all I could think about was the (nasty, gritty, gungy) juice my dad used to make with the juicer he bought in the early 80's. It was really grim!

But I have been LOVING the juice I have been buying from Juicafe! I am spending £10-15 a week in there though and that's not great for my bank balance. I really need to cap myself at ONE cafe trip a week - be it coffee bar or juice bar.

I have been browsing Pinterest for juice recipes and tasty fruit combinations, and I have been getting quite excited about it all. I'm not up for "Juice Fasting" or "Detox Diets" because I don't think they are any good for long term weight loss. I am not thinking about replacing my Weight Watchers with juice... I want to add to it. Most of the juices I have looked at are Zero Points so I can have them any time. Plus the kids are interested in trying it out too.


Hubby gave me £30 Amazon vouchers for Valentines (I think so I could by some of those Kindle books I have clogging up my wish list) and I have gone and spent it on this: Andrew James Power Juicer - not bad at 60% off and good reviews.



So it should be here by the end of the week. I am due to put another grocery order in today too so I think I will be adding a shed load of carrots and apples (for a base) and a lovely selection of other fruits and veggies, and give some of these Pins a try!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola
