    About that, yes. I think one had 21g (the toast was 15g) and the other had 25g - mainly the chickpeas in sauce.

    We like food. I'm vegan, he's veggie and we both like cooking. We prefer home-made foods, and fresh when possible so we tend to get a wide variety of foods, and a lot of different tastes. Adds to life's pleasures :)

    Mine diarises everything. That way he doesn't forget. He hates that he's getting forgetful with time, so uses his calendar to help him out. I'm a forgettie at home, but never at work. It's as if I use up my my share of memory in the office, and have none to spare for home.

    As you are our local tofu expert, @WuTwo , I have a question for you. I dried and marinated a pack of tofu today, and then went shopping and came back with things for a completely different dinner than the one I had planned. Yes, I'm funny like that. Tomorrow will be party at the neighbours, so no cooking, sunday will probably be leftovers and a big fat hangover, so definitely no cooking my complicated planned meal.
    So do you think I can leave my tofu in the fridge, marinading away until monday?

    He had or is recovering from Triaditis (inflammation of three internal organs usually liver, pancreas and small intestine - fortunately he didn't show signs of intestinal inflammation which could be 'messy'!) as I say he's recovering well now and the Vets booked an All-inclusive Bahamas trip on the proceeds :D

    It'll probably be really strong. I'm worried about the tofu because it doesn't have a long shelf life once you opened it and don't have it submerged in water. I suppose you can cook it and eat it another time?

    Glad he’s on the mend. One of my cats had a severe reaction to her booster a couple of months ago which meant a few visits to the vet - she had a high temp, dehydration and all of her limbs were stiff due to the inflammation. Both cats are insured but the vet treated her for free because it was due to the vaccination. She always manages to fall ill when we are due to go on holiday though!

    If it's submerged in the marinade, and in an airtight container then yes. If it's not submerged but airtight, try and turn it a couple of times. If it's not airtight, I might not trust it that long, but if its in the fridge it should keep. .....just keep it well damp, or cook it off, and keep the cooked dish.

    I could fry it tomorrow and keep the fried bits until monday. Or maybe I'll take my chances and see how it smells by monday. 42 Years of experience without a fridge sometimes but not wanting to throw away food have taught me my plumbing can handle quite a lot of unwise eating decisions...
    Thanks for the advice!

    I suppose you can mix up dinner a bit or share it with everyone around the table. Tofu kebabs with salad, or with soup and rice or on salad. or as you said fry it and eat it another time.

    Or if you're at home during the day, have it for lunch instead

    My dogs are very much in favour of this solution!
    All good ideas. Stupid thing is that I'll need to go shopping only for a new piece on monday if I eat it before, and I have everything I need to last me to wednesday or thursday.
    Oh well, we'll see :)

    Greeting my fellow teabags and pumpers hope you all had a good day.

    Just had my worst hypo for a long time dropped really fast from BG 3.5 to BG 2.4 and heading was spinning felt really woozy. panic sets in so cup of coffee 6 sugars and disconnect the pump. Took about 10 minutes before even felt remotely normalish. Now waiting for the inevitable huge spike

    Very It's a Knockout.

    We had a company away day once which climaxed with a race where the organisers had got hold of some of the old costumes from it's a knockout, and I was lucky enough to be the runner in one. I now have a huge amount of sympathy for all those people on the programme who were seen wandering off in completely the wrong direction, or lying on the ground unable to move. Though our team did win the race (my team were responsible for picking me up when I fell over and pointing me in the right direction) :)

    None of it works for me. What I have 1 day will not work the next. Too many variables. I wing it with every meal depending on where I am, what I have done, what I am going to do and what I am eating. I then correct or eat accordingly. Or not at all on a good day. All made easier by my self funded Libre. A fantastic piece of kit. It is eating into my old age care/funeral costs, but if there is no money left because the NHS won’t fund this relatively cheap object then it will cost them a shedload later.

    Morning everyone, hope you're all keeping well. Mr B is a very good bin man and our neighbour even better when we're away. It was sweaty betty hot in France but the sky was so bright blue that waking yesterday to UK grey sky, rain and cold, a 15C drop was a shock to the system
    Madam BG was tolerable,only a couple of hypos!! ate bread, drank rose wine and walked
    Fingers crossed for good weather, the garden has escaped again but I have to say I love the colours
    Glad to hear your cat is on the mend @slip
