I weighed myself on Saturday and the Wii thinks I lost 1.1 kilos. That would be nice! I’ll do my official weigh-in tomorrow.
Breakfast: 3 coffees with milk. I was slow to wake up.
I attempted to make a quick tart from puff pastry that I bought over the weekend but didn’t use. The pastry wasn’t very nice – it was cracking as soon as I unrolled it and didn’t seem very soft. I suspected the tart would end up rather dry as I was putting it together – and I was right.
|Puff pastry 376cal/100g||864|
|100g oyster mushrooms||43|
|100g Philadelphia Light||154|
|1 teaspoon oil||41|
|200g button mushrooms||44|
|Total for four portions||1,297|
1 portion of pie: 325 cal
120g tomato with vinegar: 30 cal
After eating this I was still very hungry. It was nice to have something different but I don’t think this will end up on my standard rotation. Cliff was pretty unimpressed with it in general (“Is this supposed to be a pizza made of puff pastry or what?”) I’m not sure how the other half of the pie will taste when cold. As a result, I came very close to simply serving the whole thing (to keep it from going to waste, especially as we were still hungry) and saying to hell with the calories. This is a temptation I can live without, so in future I’ll make sure I’m either making the correct amount for the meal or that I’m secure that it will freeze well.

We had braised brisket over the weekend. I took the left-overs and removed all the fat from the liquid and shredded the meat. It should be pretty much fat-free at this point but I used the figure for lean brisket trimmed to 1/4 inch of fat, just in case.
I did 15 minutes with Maya at the last minute (just before dinner), having taken the weekend off (although I walked to the market and back on Saturday).

I felt hungry and unhappy before bed. Cliff had about 100g of pickled cauliflower as a snack after dinner. All in all, I think I’m sticking to my theory that I need 1,000 calories/day as a minimum.
