Whenever I think of the word pudding this clip comes to mind (this link better work)

Now Supernatural is my all time favourite show and I adore Dean Winchester especially when episodes like this happen! 

Today has been relatively unproductive yesterday whilst going through the sky + box I decided to make a start on watching The Following and promptly got hooked. I was a bit too tired to watch more than two last night so spent today catching the other five we had recorded and chatting to my partner in crime Mitchy who I owe a big thanks too as she kept me cheery today when there was a danger the emotional vampire would suck me dry again. Why oh why are some friends so lame and nasty?? Thanks also to my Jen Jen for being Jen x 

Right onto the noms of the day

Nice cheese omelette to start the day with peppers, mushrooms, onions and spinach. The old stomach seems happier today less ouch which is good.

Lunch was kind of a chuck what I had in the fridge and freezer into a pan and see what comes ended up a sort of carbonara type dish

I added some quorn ham to the mix and 75g garlic and herb philli. It went down well. I wanted to follow this up with a sweet treat so made a fruit salad with yogurt.

I am polishing my halo big time at the moment! I am hoping it will pay off on the scales Wednesday!

As it's Sunday I wanted some sort of roast dinner and a pudding! Now the roast is brought to you by the face of Doug
I had two of the quorn pork and apple sausages which are amazing with lots of veggies sw roasties and my homemade free gravy. Now whilst this was amazeballs it was trumped by the pudding we had after

Absolutely gorgeous steamed ginger pudding with homemade custard. The custard is really simple the heat 250ml of milk (I used skimmed) until it is hot, you add to this a mix of two egg yolks 1tbsp sweetener and vanilla essence. You then stir until its cooked and coats the back of the spoon. 

The pudding was just as simple to make and its gorgeous. I will be nice and give you the recipe too so you can all share in the gorgeous noms

Ingredients (makes 4)

  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 4 level tbsp reduced sugar apricot jam (I didn't have any so used orange marmelade)
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 25g golden caster sugar (regular works well too)
  • 4 tbsp sweetener
  • 75g self-raising flour
  • 3 tsp ground ginger ( I had none so just added more allspice)
  • ½ tsp ground allspice
  • 1 level tbsp finely chopped stem ginger


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C Fan/Gas 6. Spray four individual
    pudding basins with low calorie cooking spray and place in a deep
    roasting dish. Spoon 1 tablespoon of jam into each of the basins.
  2. Whisk the egg yolks with the sugar and sweetener until pale and fluffy. Sieve in the flour, ground ginger and allspice and stir to mix well.
  3. Whisk the egg whites until softly peaked and fold into the egg mixture
    with the stem ginger. Spoon this into the prepared basins, cover with
    baking parchment and foil and pour boiling hot water into the roasting
    dish to come up halfway up the sides of the basins. Place in the oven
    and steam for 20-25 minutes or until just firm and springy to the touch.
  4. Put a plate over each basin and invert to turn out the puddings.
This took me up to 11 syns today which is a little higher than normal for me but it was so worth it to have this amazing pudding.

I am heading back to work tomorrow and slightly dreading it because of the amount of emails I know I am going to have to read through and the general amount of work but I am happy my stomach is virtually back to normal now.

And on that note I will love you and leave you all night night xx


  1. Great tip on how to make custard, I wonder if it work minus the sugar for a sugar free version? I love a good omelet too!
