    I hafta to say - the chickpeas in marinade that I served in my lunch salad bowl were amazing! I am thankful every time I use one of her recipes!

    I had the same chickpeas salad, with a side of rice crackers and an apple. Now I’m spending a few hours cleaning my keyboard. If anyone has a mechanical keyboard, they’ll know how many additional keys we have to clean.

    I just had the one tablespoonful, because the chopped veggies already have sunflower seeds, parmegan and walnut oil dumped on top. Add the chickpeas too (I put them on in a little pile) and it was just the tang it needed.

    And - happily - the hefty set of accounts have gone for copying/scanning. Yippee!! I have two lots to plough through next week and then I think the boss is on holiday. That's my annual tidy-up, catch up filing, get things back in order time.

    Squish it in - and yes it does. It's like playing with very soft playdough.

    In for an interesting evening, bg-wise. I'll pick up my aunts at 7:30 and we'll go for a quick dinner somewhere, directly followed by an at least 2 hour car drive to drop them off somewhere else and get back home.
    Usually when eating out I guesstimate my insulin on the high side and keep something sweet at hand in the following hours to prevent shooting high from hidden carbs. Which obviously isn't the smartest approach when having to drive.
    I'll let you know how it ended and am looking forward to going out for dinner!

    @WuTwo
    I’ll have a cheeky shop on Amazon ;)

    Would it be cheeky if I drag my bf out now to go to Ikea for small bits of furniture? (I’ve been begging to go since March for their vegan dogs and Oatly mango drink)

    You know some men have this ability to block out whatever the females have to say. My bf blocks out until I mention food.

    In that case it's a promise to cook a very favourite meal if, and only if, you get to go to Ikea! No Ikea - dinner you like and he doesn't.

    Himself always comes in and asks me (at least twice) whether I had a good day and then proceeds to tell me about the frustrations of his day.
    On Tuesday he came in asked if I had a good day and I told him I felt rubbish and my BG was so high I decided to change my pump set. His response was "That's good!" and before I had a chance to explain why it is not good, he dumped his work complaints onto me.
    At least I think he did but I stopped listening after 5 minutes!

    He is better at listening once he has completed his download. I think his RAM is full and can't take any more until it has been transferred to a larger disk (me) with some compression (ignoring) en route.

    Never mind, I was ready to leave and thought to send them a message I was on my way when I noticed her message said friday...
    So all the anticipation turns out to be for tomorrow and I've got to be creative in the kitchen once again as I didn't buy dinner things. I expect roasted chickpeas will be part of my scrambled together meal, as I did buy the chickpeas I wanted to try yesterday :)
