Sat 19 May - Arggh! Sick again

Damn. Woke up at 08:00 feeling awful again - cold/chest infection thingy rebound. I am bunged up, have a sore throat, nasty phlegmy chest and ache all over like flu.

Just when things were getting better. Maybe I over did it going to the gym....

Anyway, dosed myself up with Lemsips and went back to bed until midday, so no breakfast. Made some hashed potatoes and fried egg at midday.
Hashed Potatoes
235g potatoes, boiled & diced
1/2 green pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon olive oil
No real recipe here; just saute the potatoes in a non stick skillet until they are just starting to get golden, then add the garlic and peppers (as they will cook faster) and continue to saute until all nicely browned.

Serve with
1 egg, fried
1 tomato, sliced
"Cool Chile" Chipotle catsup

For dinner, I made a sort of fried rice with prawns & veggies and lots of broccoli.

Prawn Fried Rice
1 egg, well beaten
1 clove garlic
60g brown basmati rice, cooked
100g mange tout, sliced
1 carrot, slivered
4 spring onions, sliced
90g prawns
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons oyster sauce

Spray a non-stick skillet or wok with a little oil and heat. Pour in the egg and cook until set. Remove from wok and shred.

Add the garlic, carrot, mange tout and rice to the wok. Stir fry until the veggies are cooked, about 3-4 minutes. Add the prawns and continue stir frying for a further minute, until they are heated through. Finally, add the spring onions, soy sauce & oyster sauce and mix well. Garnish with
200g broccoli , steamed
and serve.
