Friday Catch Up

Lisa from The Tin House asked me some questions so I thought I'd post all the answers and goings on....if she's asked, surely others are wondering LOL.

Firstly about the Apricot Frittata. I used tinned apricots because that's what I had. Any tinned fruit you like would be fine as long as it's drained. You could also use fresh fruit, just cooked first. I would saute it gently in the pan I intended to use to make the frittata. Once the fruit is cooked continue with the recipe. If you don't want to use sugar, try honey, maple syrup, stevia...whatever your diet needs would have you use :)

Secondly Lisa asked about the diet change. My Naturopath suggested a wheat free diet. Not as strict as someone who has Coeliac would have to be, so I can still use soy sauce and flour my bench when kneading or rolling something out. But if I can possibly avoid it, I should. Surprisingly, I feel so much better. I don't have the indigestion, burping or the awful feeling that I am dragging myself around, rather than having enough energy to do what I need to.

I have yet to try the scones. Such a week this one has been, preparing for a Women's Retreat!!!

I'm glad your diet is making you feel better. I'm in serious need of doing without sugar. I've been nipping into the Easter candy a bit too much the last couple of weeks!

Have a great weekend,

Hi Tracy - isn't it amazing what a dietary change can do? Thanks for the tips on the frittata. I'm going to make it for DH for Sunday breakfast. He has the poos with me this afternoon as a suggestion I've made for the bathroom renovation creates LOTS of extra work for him! (I'd be upset too) Mind you...he'll melt when I deliver him his afternoon tea in a few minutes.

Hope your retreat is a wonderful, restful and thoughtful time away.

As difficult as the changes are to begin with, Frances, they are worth it.

Your husband sounds like a man worthy of spoiling, Lisa. I'm sure if you keep him well fed he'll put in the hard work with a little more joy.
