Update on the 'bet'

Back in December I wrote about a bet that was happening in Kym's kitchen about the apprentice needing to lose 12kg in 12 weeks. Well he now has only one month to go and he has lost 3kg... he lost 6kg but then went and put on 3kg over Christmas. Poor bugger!

What I now find found funny about this is that he is now on the Cabbage Soup Diet (as opposed to the Tony Ferguson he was on before). I looked up this diet here and was pleased to see they make mention of the fact that this diet "is sometimes referred to as the "Mayo Clinic Diet", and the "Sacred Heart Hospital Diet". Interestingly, this diet has nothing to do with either the Mayo Clinic, nor any Sacred Heart Hospital we know about". Wow, so they have confirmed this diet has nothing to do with name of the hospital on one of my favourite shows, Scrubs. Hilarious. Obviously they don't watch the show or get the joke of why someone would call this diet that in the first place... I found this article as well about how bad this diet is. It's certainly up there with the Lemon Detox Diet my parents tried last year... but that's another story for another time. Needless to say it was a time when my sister and I had to be the parents as they were acting like children... (sorry mum if you're reading this but it's true, you didn't use your better judgement there!).

So anyway, I still wish Blake luck. He may get there... However he did go and call his boss a 'pussy' about how slow he rides his mountain bike, so when Blake wasn't looking he dropped 500gm of butter into his carefully portioned cabbage soup and blitzed it so he wouldn't know. Maybe there's a lesson in this for all of us - don't give people a hard time who can easily mess with the food you consume :D

SO FUNNY! What eould a kitchen do without an apprentice. How can soemone who works with food think that soup thing is a good idea.

Cabbage soup - even the name is appealing - not! I have been having fun with vegetables, as my husband has been bringing back boxes of fresh produce from a friend's farm. So far I've managed to get rid of some zucchini in a cake, and yesterday I finally took a deep breath and grated up tons of beetroot for a chocolate and beetroot cake. Don't know what I'm going to do with all those cucumbers, though!

Aaaaah, the lemon detox diet. Who could forget? Hopefully the apprentice stays on his Cabbage Soup diet for only as long as Mum and Dad stayed on their lemon before he actually does himself any harm!!!!
