    Okay, I think it is time for me to get back on track and focused, which is something I haven't been the last few weeks.

    Firstly we had family visiting and then some personal stuff going on has just sent me completely off track and I can't seem to get back into the swing of things. I find myself starting off well and then it goes more and more downhill.

    So back to basics from now on and I thought what better way to do so than to start doing a food diary again.

    So here I am.

    Forgot to add that as well as starting my food diary, I need to make more of an effort to drink water, as that is my trouble most days, I get so distracted with doing things and playing with my hyper almost 4 year old, that I forget to have a drink and it can be 4pm some days and I have drank nothing.

    So will start adding my fluid intake also to my daily food diarys as a reminder to drink more lol. If I haven't put any for the day, someone please give me a slapped wrist.

    Hi Britmum I am wading thru the "Post your food pics for meal ideas" and I saw your Caramelised Onion, Tomato and Filo Pastry Tart but I can't find the recipe - do you still have it?

    you can find all my recipes on my slimmingeats blog (just google and you will find it)

    The recipe for the tart is as follows:

    Serves: 2
    2 HEa’s + 7 syns for entire recipe on Red, Green or Extra Easy

    Ingredients
    2 sheets of filo pastry (7 syns)
    1 small red onion sliced
    1 tomato sliced
    84g of mozzarella, broken up into pieces (HEa x 2)
    salt and pepper to season
    balsamic vinegar
    non stick spray (butter and olive oil flavour)


    Method
    Preheat oven to 180c or 350f
    Place the two filo sheets on top of each other. Cut into half and then cut each half into half again. So you should have 8 pieces of filo pastry.
    Now layer the filo sheets on top of each other, each time moving the angle slightly until you have a rough circle of filo pastry sheets. You can then fold over the corners that stick out, to give it more of a rounded shape.
    Spray a frying pan with the butter flavoured non stick spray and cook the onions until a golden caramelised colour. You may need to add a little water if it starts to stick.
    Add the caramelised onion to the top of the filo pastry sheets, then add the tomato slices. Top with the broken up pieces of mozzarella cheese.
    Add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and season with salt and black pepper.
    Place the filo round with topping on a baking tray, spray over the top with the olive oil flavoured non stick spray and bake in the oven till the filo pastry is crisp and golden and all the cheese has melted.

    Just been out in the garden to check on my herbs. My coriander has really grown in the last few days, so should have some to use soon. Next door were moving too and had a huge rosemary plant growing in their garden, so pulled it up and gave it to me, so that has been replanted and I have no end of it now at my use. I am going to do some garlic and rosemary wedges one night this week. My basil and chives are also doing well. I just have to remember to keep watering them in this heat.

    I managed to get some lamb mince, is new zealand stuff though, so not quite the same as a nice joint of lamb, but will satisfy my cravings for it lol. Think I am going to do meatballs or burgers with it tomorrow.
