    Glad you enjoyed Cumbs. I am a huge fan of British rock bands from 70's and 80's but Def Leppard just leave me cold, just dont like them at all. Yet just about every other band from that era, Deep Purple, Sabbath, Whitesnake,Rainbow, Dio, Maiden,Saxon etc I love. Aw well we can't all like the same thing

    Think of all the cornflour in the gravy - just too much carbs!

    That was my first and only consideration. Gravy always takes me over my daily carb allowance.:)

    Agree about the pretty boy image, but that mainly came about around 1987, for the album called surprisingly 1987, when he was trying to crack America. Whitesnake were originally a good old British blues rock band

    1987. What a great year. Though I preferred Guns & roses... Dysfunctional rock. Before I wised up... :cool:
    ... & a couple of years later, took to "grunge." ;)

    Just throwing a spanner in the works here @therower I don’t like chips!! Was never a big fan, and then at age 16, in the hot summer of 76, worked in a fish and chip restaurant. That finished me off!

    Morning everyone, blood sugar a bit boring at the moment, so not had much to say, boring is good though, shouldn't complain.

    But isn't chips with gravy an inevitable consequence of purchasing the most perfect of chip shop delicacies, steak and kidney pudding?

    This dislike of chips with gravy is a bit anti steak and kidney pies, and puddings. I must protest.

    I only ever saw steak and kidney puddings for sale in Lancashire, when I had a boyfriend from Clitheroe for a couple of years, and visited a few times, but they were lovely.

    This was pre glucose testing meters and they could therefore be eaten without guilt.

    I think I'm still looking for the absolutely perfect portion of chips as remembered from two childhood chip shops and it's taking a lot of looking. I got three years behind on my research in my T2/LCHF days, and haven't really caught up since. I can only summon up the courage and strength for the insulin calculations for chips in certain circumstances.

    It's like I told the sales assistant who was trying to sell me chocolate mid-afternoon "No, thank you, I can't be bothered to calculate the insulin dose and effects for that right now."

    Definitely not - makes em go soggy same as vinegar does. When I have chips I only put salt on them but will sometimes have chicken, chips and curry sauce. We have a fish and chip van in the village every Saturday and their chips etc are always fresh.

    Good morning y'all & happy Monday :p , waking on a 4.1, dropping to 4 before a Dextrotab, pre bolussed and sat at 5.6 which is a good start for the week.
    Chips? I avoid them myself in the name of low fat healthy eating, but my mum worked in a chippy during my childhood, memories of a metal bath full of spuds for me to peel (there was a machine) during the summer hols, 2 day old haddock in't fridge from the left overs :) still wrapped in newspaper to be warmed up for Friday tea, battered spam fritters :p and these days being a glutton one needs a large injection or two to be able to eat this food so rarely bother.
