    Oh well, just have to experiment, don't know whether to go for a cream or oil base.

    Thanks to @Robinredbreast for the red lentil penne idea.This was my version, sour cream, squirt of lemon, fresh oregano, spring onions, red pepper and chicken, quick nip of cayenne.
    Have to say the penne was amazingly filling IMG_2946.JPG but yummy

    How Low?

    I would have ignored it because I would have guessed that that would hit several hours later :) but that's just me and I don't quite fly by the rules :)

    I made Chow Mein last night, but with left over beef from Sunday, it made a nice change.

    Vegetarian shawarma with some onions, mushrooms and bell pepper. Without the pita but with extra garlic sauce (mayonnaise, garlic, drop of water, drop of lemon juice) and hot sauce, a simple salad with a dressing of mayonnaise, lemon zest and juice, salt and pepper and corn with butter and salt.
    Not a clue about the carb count, which doesn't really matter as I forgot to inject anyway :banghead:

    Tasted wonderful, and it turns out I like this shawarma (Vivera) better than the meat one from the supermarket. Not as much as the one from my neighbour's ram, though, but that's all gone by now.

    Salmon tonight. This is what it should have looked like from the cookbook. My version didn't quite make the photo cut, but it was tasty. Seriously, who has time to decorate it like in the picture? I was way too hungry.
