    Surf & Turf chicken with baked potato and creamy mushroom side for dinner on my last night in Prague. 43g/3u for this one and it was absolutely scrumptious![​IMG]

    @Knikki 'tis the devils food is pizza; I find I can safely pinch a slice off someone and take 3u and not spike, but if I eat a whole one :) I spike, or if I don't by taking 2 or 3 jabs for it then I spike when I'm asleep, but being a glutton doesn't help much...

    Parents evening? Hmmmmm yes, about 55/45 to the good, which I'm not very pleased about as it's her first term, but they've got my number now so she knows I'll be getting a call if she misbehaves, she's 12 on Sunday and has more freedom than I'd give her and her mobile phone's banned from mine as I'm a misery, grrrrr....

    A frozen curry defrosted and reheated for tea, and a 60g complex carbs pouch of rice as I cba cooking it :) 6u Humalog.

    As a low carb Type 2, reading this thread is a form of masochism!

    Years of experimentation and getting it wrong :writer: but even now different pizzas do different things and I don't always get it right :rolleyes::happy:

    But unfortunately the "Devils" food is always more tasty and worth a go :hilarious:

    Tea tonight
    photo.JPG
    will have those vegetables in it, (pot noodle's not mine but shown for a giggle :p ) I never show the veg content of my food as usually steamed it's plonked on the plate with the curry chucked over it.
    Thai I'm having with brown basmati rice, 7u Humalog and around 100g carbs all in.

    Meatballs with cheese, gnocci & steamed veg with a tomato sauce, as that's what the child requested, scotch mince (a bargain half price too), garlic, onion, mushroom and tomato blitzed in the blender, chipotle chilli in mine :p around 110g carbs all in. Edit, and 8.5u Humalog as the gnocci carbs (tho not excessive) can give a late spike.

    To be honest (and it may surprise you) there's very little savoury food I won't eat :p :p

    I'm occasionally prone to the munchies so keep things like olives to hand so's not to spike....

    A change tonight, by request of the 12 year old, sausage in Yorkshire puddings, veg, mash and gravy, with a couple of lamb chops on mine, guessing 120g carbs and 8u Humalog.
    I've not posted pics up recently, simply as what I've shown so far is what I eat and you've seen the regular menu :p :) sausages are a rareity as to me they're full of both fat and cholesterol so best given a wide berth same as bacon, although that won't stop me from finding some Toulouse bangers for the Christmas period.

    What it did need was another 2.5u Humalog as I spiked to 10.6 :) tho I'm blaming that on the mint sauce :p

    The current issue is the stores best lemon cheesecake sat in the fridge, evil food the child requested as it was a mark down teach em young :p I won't eat it so have rang the ex to come and remove it along with the large iced gingerbread reindeer that she's just had me make icing for.
    I keep opening the fridge door to look at the cheesecake, I've sniffed at it and my eyes watered :) it's still where I put it and hasn't moved, but I'll catch it if it does.
    Oh I wish I had some Fiasp :p
