    I did just Dinner today.
    The first time we've had Venison burgers.
    I like blogging my eats and have done so here http://aminoapps.com/p/j9vz5j
    I tried a new way of making celeriac chips today and that is to microwave them first so that they're still warm when I pour heated seasoned beef dripping on them. I found that this helps coat them evenly in the fat before I bake them off.

    Yesterday; slow smoked 13hr pulled pork.

    Invited to a bbq by some close friends; always good to take something.

    Effectively zero carb per portion (before put into buns). IMG_0966.jpg IMG_0967.jpg

    BG lower after than when I started (yay accuracy)
