Happy Birthday Mum!
It’s April 01 today, and this day is the birthday of the most special person in my life, my angel, my friend, my life long suporter and in my opinion the most beautiful woman in the world….my MUM!
I am lucky to have you as my mother and just hope I can be a fraction of what you are.
Happy Birthday Mum!!
Just for fun, a side by side bridal picture of my mum and I on our wedding days.
Food Find Friday (FFF) : Normally Fridays around the b’sphere are devoted to a fashion friday post, however, I thought doing a FFF post would be fun and it meshes well with my interests i.e. food. Not to forget that you need to be fashionable to do a fashion friday post and my dressing sense…well lets just leave it at that!
I found Pasta Slim wheat and gluten free spinach fettuccine at Earthfare a few days back and it looked interesting to me.
And the nutritional stats are not to shabby either,
To test out the fettuccine, I used it as a bed for my tempeh bolognese. (ground tempeh+ red pepper flakes+ jarred marinara sauce+ some more Italian seasoning)…Ah-mazing!!
They have a very bland taste and a nice bite. If you’ve tasted shirataki noodles, they taste just like them …i.e. no taste. I actually did not mind it all. I am not a big pasta fan, only exception being noodles love them in Chinese food. So this was a nice substitute. I actually would love to buy this again.
Let me just add, I have nothing against carbs and I am not a proponent of any form of low carb diet!
A salad alongside and nutritional yeast flakes to top the sauce.
Workout: 30 minutes on the elliptical at level 7. Honestly did not feel very satisfying, I am getting used to the high after running, I think.
What are your plans for the weekend? I will be waking up at an ungodly hour on Saturday morning to cheer team India in the Cricket World cup final, which I am sure will put my sleep cycle out of whack for the weekend.
