    Admire the Polish honey and wisznowka glazed duck, apple stuffed with cranberries, kluczki and beetroot. I didn't cook it and tried to resist, really I did.
    I always thought @kev-w posted some brilliant plates of food IMG_2606.JPG

    I have to ask.... did you cook the octopus yourself... you are so brave... and I’m envious you can. I’d love to cook octopus but it’s so monster looking.... your dish looks great :-D

    I find it's only rubbery, if overlooked, or cooked too quickly. It's a fine line.

    It doesn't look nice or appetising to me, so I will give it a miss too

    @michita Octopus is really easy after the first 4 dunkings it just cooks slowly and doesn't need much attention. It was huge and lasted for days

    A slightly more diabetic friendly version of a traditional Dutch dish. It's usually made with a lot of mashed potatoes but I find them difficult to dose for so I make it with a little mashed potatoes and extra fried onion and mushrooms.

    Main ingredient is raw but warmed endive (is that right? It's what google comes up with when I ask for the translation of 'andijvie', never heard of it) and apart from afore mentioned ingridients it holds diced bacon and diced cheese. Plus a half leftover piece of pork meat, but that was mostly bone.
    Not a clue how many carbs but have been hovering close to 4 since eating, 2 hours ago, so at least guessed my insulin dose perfectly :)

    Fried onions go with almost everything, they're tasty and cheap too! I use a lot of onions :)

    They're also perfect to make more of leftovers if it is too little for a meal :hungry:

    I don't know whether to click "funny" or "hug", so I'll do both in my head.
