Thai salad

I’m back on weight watchers, and rather than thinking of things I shouldn’t be eating, I’m taking the opportunity to try some new recipes and get out of my meal rut.
One discovery from a recent WW magazine is my current fave! Thai salad – delicious, quick and easy. And healthy. What more could you want??
Base salad is red onion, white cabbage and carrot. I add some greenery to lighten it too. The recipe suggests chicken, but tonight I’ve used prawns instead. Add a simple dressing of lime juice, fish sauce and brown sugar, with chilli and peanuts to finish – scrummy!




So, today has been pretty hum-drum, with 2 chicken pox’d boys I’m stuck at home 😦 T did have his friends over for lunch who also have the dreaded pox, but other than that its been pretty quiet.

For tea, I decided to make salmon fishcakes from my old weight watchers cook book, which looked quite simple and yummy – heres what it was meant to look like:


As you can probably guess from the title of my post, it didnt quite go to plan! When I tried to fry off the patties, they simply burnt onto my pan! So I ended up serving a fishy mashed potato mix with veg. I haven’t taken a pic as it looked a bit pathetic – better luck next time!
