    You had the truth: it was piece of cake - 1 (A). Now BG is 6.0 - only one meal - salad with eggs. We will see morning.
    Time for vodka this evening :)

    5.2 at 4:40 am.

    I tried re-heated cooked rice with a 150 gram portion last night, it's the first and last time as it stuffed my daily average up by putting me nearly into the 6.0 level.

    All good this morning though...

    Well done Jim. [​IMG]
