The Lasagne smells so good! My mouth is watering. I have been in to town to have a look at my first weight-loss goal treat… I will be having some nice finger nails put on. I was looking for a treat that has nothing to do with food. As far back as I can remember food was a treat in my life so I want to break that patter. What else? The weigh-in yet again on my mind but I am slowly chilling about it. Tomorrow I will start prepping for Sunday Lunch. I have invited my adopted mom and her lovely hubby round for lunch and I want to make it special and as hassle free as possible on Sunday so prepping is my saviour for this.
