    Does a yummy combo count?

    Melt a square or two of that dark chocolate and mix in macadamias that have been whizzed up. Shape into small balls. Chill. Eat.

    Melt the other two (rest of bar) squares. Stir in best double cream. Sweetener if needed. Pour. Chill. Balls. Eat.

    I was also going to suggest heating up some double cream, add grated pecorino and ricotta cheese, stir until melted, add salt and pepper and pour over vegetables, but that's no treat, it's par for the course in my diet.

    We ran out of bread yesterday (my wife is not diabetic) so I had to bake some, & while doing it I made a fruit cake. #

    Enjoy the aroma - & have a tiny piece.

    Because of my reduced carb, I was 6.7 last night & 5.7 this morning.

    I'm allergic to chocolate.

    Second is a really good hot curry. Any sort. I believe chilli is addictive, especially the Dorset Naga.
