Its been a bit of a mixed bag this week. The boss sprang a trip on me last week and kinda wanted me to switch my day off as he prefers someone in the office if he is away. Now that I work 4 days a week I don't like messing up my one day off because I usually have appointments lined up weeks and months in advanced. I did have the car booked in for some work but decided after thinking about it over the weekend and saw the workload for the week to swap Thursday for Tuesday as long as I could go in late (as work owed me a couple of hours that wasn't a biggy).
The only problem with it is I have just lost the whole feel for what day it is. I woke up on Wednesday convinced it was Friday, then the slow dawning that it was only hump day. Today doesn't feel like a Thursday at all. To top it off the kids have been sick Maestro yesterday and today Squid had to go to MIL as I had to work. We have a plumbing problem brewing.. but DH will probably stay home with Squid tomorrow so that might get taken care of before the long weekend.
On Tuesday, I food shopped and then cooked most of the day. I am trying to go sugar free and trying to get the family to do it as well which is proving difficult. DH is such a sweet tooth and he keeps asking where's desert which defeats the whole process. I figure if all they get is the no sugar alternatives they will eventually join the party or starve. They have liked some of the things I have been cooking. Like this: Coco Nutty Granola and the no sugar LCM bars I have been making. I'm hooked on Macadamia nut paste. Also tried my hand at home made cream cheese which was a success.... but my mayo was a flop (I'm blaming the food processor and come to the conclusion it is a dud). Might have to do some more research into making mayo.
Also need to do some more research into where to get coconut flakes the ones I used in the Granola were pretty pricey I could only get the organic variety from a Health Food shop as the duopoly (Coles and Woolies) only had desiccated and shredded varieties and no flakes and I had to be really careful about what coconut I purchased from them because a lot of the packets had added sugar.
That's the week that was. The beginners sampler is all wash and drying under a heater vent and there has been a little progress on the appliqué borders.... hopefully I will get to do some more on the weekend. Catch you next time.
