Nice soup

I was expecting lunch today but I managed to only have the coffee. We had ordered in food to the office and it was not very low carb so I passed…

I did join for dinner and I had a really nice fish soup.

Not much energy in the soup so I made a salad of 70 g of tuna and 50 g of mayo when I got home.

Up one size

Hmmm, today I got a couple of new pairs of pants and it is not only the weight that is increasing… I had to get one size larger than a year ago… Darn.. :-)

Oh, well. I just need to straighten the food up a bit.

Today I made a nice creamy pepper sauce to my two pork chops.

I had plans on eating lunch in Stockholm but my “date” had to cancel… So I walked around for 2 more hours in our beautiful capital.

The dinner was a couple of pork chops, broccoli and red wine sauce with a lot of butter.

Quite a lot of veggies today made the carbs go up a bit.

Butter added

Today I used some meat I got last weekend when I made a recipe of broth for the magazine. I boiled pork and beef bones for 10 hours and when done I took care of the meat still left on the bones. So today I made a nice soup. 2,5 dl double cream, some broth, mushrooms and seasoned with green pepper.

I felt something was missing when I started eating so I just put a large slice of butter in the soup… Perfection… :-)  Butter make everything better…

Terrible photo of great dish

Since I was a way a couple of days I had to work some at the office today (and tomorrow). After work I went for a walk ot to one of our malls go get some food and wine (again).

Skärmavbild 2014-11-22 kl. 20.32.29

The reason for getting more wine was to make the same recipe as last week for the magazine. I was not happy with the photo and today it got even worse… The dish is really nice but it looks terrible…

20141120-0082--12

The second was a beef tartar.

The Third was the best dish of the night. A nice pice of fish and an extremely nice soup.

20141120-0082--18

The fourth was potato puré (yes I tasted some of it), pork and a sausage. Really nice pork”

20141120-0082--31

New job

After (almost) 15 years at my present employer I put in my letter of resignation yesterday. It was a tough decision to make but at the same time really easy… I have really loved my work and co-workers but the last two years have been a little of just “same old things” (and I do not mean my co-workers). I have lacked a bit of inspiration and opportunity to do new stuff. I have mentioned before that my company is being bought by General Electric so I did see some nice changes coming our way so I decided to stay. Then off course a really interesting job was announced and I just had to apply. It is in a totally new business for me. I have been working within i a company with really big projects and long deliveries (1-5 years). Now I am joining a company operating on much shorter financial cycles. I would imagine almost day to day…

The company I will start working for in February is

Skärmavbild 2014-11-18 kl. 21.18.52

One of the largest (if not the largest) sport retail group in the Nordic countries. Over 150 stores and 2300+ employees. I will be responsible for the Labour Law on group level. In a way a totally new area of Labour Law and collective agreements but the basic are pretty similar so I know I will be fine.

The funny thing is that it is a total coincident I will be starting working for a company in the sport retail business at the same time I have started my new project running the NY Marathon…

Now I hope I will be able to “relax” a bit and focus more on the bloggs, books, apps and other LCHF-related things.

For dinner tonight I used som “leftovers” from yesterday so the dish I made was a bit messy… A nice entrecote with creamy mushrooms, broccoli and sauce bearnaise…

Eventfull day

I had a quite bas night of sleep today. I was a bit nervous for things to come during the day… The sleep quality was only 52%

14 1117-TommyTappar -20141117-00001IMG_9938

Before I started the day I took a medium walk trying to relax…

Skärmavbild 2014-11-17 kl. 22.15.39

I went out for lunch with some of my colleagues and we went to the indian place again…

14 1117-TommyTappar -20141117-00003IMG_9940

After a really intense day (for the brain anyway) I finally came home and made dinner. I tried a recipe for the magazine and the dish was really nice even thou it looks really boring… Entrecote, cauliflower and red wine sauce.

14 1117-TommyTappar -20141117-00023IMG_9960

To celebrate the result of the days event I drank the rest of the wine from the small bottle I bought for the sauce.

14 1117-TommyTappar -20141117-00031IMG_9968

Tomorrow I might announce what the fuzz was all about…

The intakes today went quite high…
