It's pancake Tuesday today. Whilst I DONT have a sweet tooth I can eat pancakes for England, but that wouldn't do my diet any good. This version however is totally Fat Free! I ate mine with lemon juice and sugar substitute!.
You need....
3 Eggs
2-3 Teaspoons sweetener (depending on own taste)
3-4 Drops of vanilla essence
Seperate the white from the yolk and put into separate bowls, Whisk the egg white until fluffy and add the sweetener,
In the other bowl add the vanilla essence then fold the yolk into the egg white.
Heat a frying pan with frylight, add the mix and spread as you would a normal pancake (i made two out of this recipe) after a few mins flip over.
You could add any fruit or yoghurt for instance to make it how you like it

Eat well for less.

On Saturday we had a roast lamb dinner with a selection of vegetables.
 I experimented with a sauce 1 bramley apple, 1 onion half a de-seeded red pepper roasted together.
Made up half a pint of stock then blitzed and added more water.
As this was an experiment I made a standard gravy too.
Sunday - the left over roasted vegetables.
 I finely chopped this and left to one side.
I then beat an egg and stirred into the chopped veg.
I made up a packet of super rice and stirred it into the mixed veg mixture.
Placed 3 red pepper skins into a roasting bag and cooked for 15 minutes.
I then stuffed the peppers with the rice/veg mixture and cooked for 30 minutes in oven.
In a pan I placed the left over lamb, some extra onions and poured in the rest of the experimental sauce. I added curry powder, cumin and some dried chilli flakes.
I served the curry with the stuffed peppers - gorgeous.
I sliced the peppers so we had 6 portions in all.
The following night there was sufficient for 2 more portions.
The lamb cost £12.50 and we got 3 evening meals from it.
I am particularly pleased as I made this recipe from scratch with ingredients we had in.
