My jug of skimmed milk. This will stay fresh for a few days.
the reason for the skimming!
I purchased a diet magazine that doesn't seem like a diet magazine. I was so impressed I bought #2 of the series and will add to the series when I can afford it as #6 has recently been released. Some of the recipes have replaced full cream milk with evaporated light milk and the milk you are supposed to use for other purposes is skim milk. Evaporated light milk costs between $2.20 -$2.60/375ml can where I live and skim milk isn't cheap either and as Violet is giving between 4-6 litres/day I couldn't see the point in raising my shopping costs and giving good milk to the dogs!
I'll have to try this experiment to see if it works.
Meanwhile, even the family is happy with their 'diet' food and of course they can have bigger serves but they are discovering they are full on the same serves as I eat.
As I didn't have a chance to take photos before serving because the 'vultures' were ravenous I had to resort to photographing the leftovers. Please use your imagination and picture these surrounded by your favourite salad or vegetables!

The magazines are the "Symply too good too be true" series by Annette Sym and are available in Newsagents or from her website. Or you can download a few free recipes from the website first, like I did, and then decide if they are for you.
