Pasta, Pesto and Haloumi

October 05, 2010

The mercury is slowly rising towards a warmer weather... Its time to clean the wardrobe and put away winter clothing... and out 'Summer Wear'! Yay.... but... before I could put on my Summer Clothes... I need to lose few kg... as the result of 'Winter Comford Food'...

I have been having my brisk walking ... not everyday but at least 3 times a week... and last weekend ~ Mr H and I were so busy in our garden... pruning, weeding, planting (heirloom tomatoes, sweet basil, purple basil, meyer lemon) Hope that counts towards reducing my kgs :)...At the moment, the bathroom scale is not my 'BFF' yet ..

And this WeightWatcher Salad will help me in achieving my goals...  ;)

  • 2 tablespoon lite sour cream
