Valentine's Day Evening Meal :-)

Valentine's Day Evening Meal :-)

Hi everyone,

Here is our Valentine Dinner, which we cooked at home. It was some Steak with Peppercorn sauce, some Garlic mushrooms, Broccoli, Sweet potato chips, a Red Onion, and half a Baked tomato each. :-)

Total calories = 841

I must admit I've had a few 'extras' today that I've not divulged - and my total calories for the day have ended up at 2,997 - but it is Valentine's Day, and so I've over-indulged a bit. Looking forward to a much healthier and less-calorific day tomorrow. :-)

Wishing everyone a great evening.

Zest :-)

Blimey Zest 👩‍🍳 this looks a really good spread your garlic mushrooms look lovely too I'll have to try that as I love mushrooms. Funnily enough we both had similar veggies for tea tonight...😊

As its valentines day I do hope you had some extra special choccies ❣️

Hi Jerry,

Extra special choccies would have been much better than the 'extras' I did have - I'll confess to having a very unhealthy pastry - a 91g Yum-Yum which was 400 calories, and a Spotted Dick dessert with ice-cream and cream - those were my undivulged extras - I am not having any more yum-yums, as I think a healthy seeded cake is much better for me.

Those garlic mushrooms were on special offer - a whole pack ready prepared for 50p - I couldn't believe it - felt like the lazy way to have them.

I remember shogg doing a post about Pizza Mushrooms a long time ago - which I thought of when I saw your Portobello Pizza - it's such a great idea!

Anyway, I think extra special choccies would have been lovely, but I didn't have any. Probably just as well. :-)

Hi avoid-sugar,

I admit I didn't work too hard to avoid them today. But I am going to try to have a healthy remainder of the week, as I'm trying to lose a bit of weight this week. It's not looking hopeful really... lol
