Happy Wednesday and Halloween to everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the spooky festivities and either got dressed up or are getting dressed up tomorrow / at the weekend. I dressed up as a 20s Flapper on Sunday night and had a great night catching up with friends and cocktails 🙂 The evidence is on my instagram 😀

Soooooooooo this is my fifth WIAW and its great! Linking up with the brilliant Jenn @Peas and Crayons, make sure you check out other bloggers WIAW’s as there are some very interesting recipes and ideas there.

It has turned very cold here in Ireland and winter is definitely popping its cold head up Brrrrr. Bearing that in mind I could have had a warmer breakfast!

Breakfast: Pineapple, Mandarin and Apple with low fat natural yogurt and sunflower seeds

So I had to get the heat in to me by lunch time as I was perishing, it was the old but warming and tasty reliable…….SOUP

Dinner was Chicken. But not just any old chicken…..Chicken breast stuffed with Brie, Sun-dried tomatoes and spinach. Served on a bed of stir-fry vegetables and topped with a chunky tomato and basil sauce. Gluten and Grain free, very low fat and carb BUT one hell of a tasty plate!

These muffins were made for the Sunday night cocktails – Carrot and Pistachio (gluten free) – and they went down a treat! I made a frosting of natural yogurt and honey for them also (which I let firm up in the fridge beforehand)
