    Glad to see that the pump is working for you at last :)
    Slight adjustment of the basal I would say. 4 hours and the bolus would/should have worn off

    @Mel dCP - if you could share that recipe I'd be a grateful woman! I'm very fond of tofu. Would it work with marinaded tofu, so that I can make flavoured crispy tofu?

    @Molly56 - sorry to hear about your shingles! I hope it's not too painful and clears up quickly.

    Afternoon

    Filthy Dunking into coffee but hot beverage of your choice :)

    Rich Tea OK works well but goes soggy quite quick.
    Bourbons nice but really does not retain liquid so well, bit waterproof .
    Hob nobs so far the best retains mass, can be slurped from and re-dunked.
    Jaffa Cakes, not so good fall apart quick.
    Jammy Dodgers not bad the jam adds an extra je ne sais quoi.

    TWIX bars :woot::woot::woot: you have to try this. Get a Twix bite both the ends off them and then use like a straw, the caramel inside melts adding a whole new flavour, don't last long as the heat tends to cause it to fall apart. BUT before you all go :wtf: try it and see what I mean.

    Just out waiting for my mut at the groomers.... "The weasel look."

    Lol, there's gonna be a riot at the parlour, these guys think it's "easy money" when he trots through the door like butter wouldn't melt.. They have been warned & advised to fit a muzzel.. :nailbiting:

    Got some tickets for a "pop up cinema" in my viĺlage hall to finally see Bohemian rhapsody tonight..
    Just hope the focus on the projector is tuned. & the venue isn't "double booked" with the ballroom dance club,

    Or else, we'll see a little silhouetto of a man & doing the fandango....;)

    @Knikki thats not a very scientific appraisal lardy so and so (I'm only quoting what you said about your self! :hilarious:)

    Surely ambient and beverage liquid temperature, dunking depth and duration need to be logged and monitored as a minimum! Re-do it properly please - I can send extra insulin if required............:D

    I think that was copied from the Aussie TimTams. They even have a name for it "Timtam slam" and a wkihow page to explain how to do it: https://www.wikihow.com/Do-the-Tim-Tam-Slam.
    The comments are worthy of a perusal.

    Tim Tams are real. A similarity to Penguin biscuits.

    Oddly!

    In the UK, is it OK to slam an equivalent Penguin
    It's pretty much a Timtam so could be tried, should the region not supply?
    Using the wrapper with the corners cut for health & safety
    should the integrity deplete & crumble the treat.
    Using the wrapper as a suportive "hose"
    Or has it be tried crumbled dry & snorted up the nose...?

    They could be twins. Though from memory, I think the Timtam is lighter, more porous than the more dense Penguin.

    I literally just dusted strips of the extra firm stuff in a spicy salt thing I have and fried it in coconut oil until crispy.

    How fat were the strips? About normal crisp thick?

    I shall be making a bowl of these to go with tomorrow's lunch-time salad :)
