    sorry for the delay I seem to be only able to get to the forums at the weekends - there is a all natural nut butter company called pics and they just brought out individual packs see picture, it comes wiht a mini bulldog clip so you can save for later. Handy to have in my bag. You could get a company to do it you way or just decant peanut butter inot small pots this is 30g suggested serving size is 15g

  5. You called it a "shot" and the maker calls it a "slug". I know which sounds more appetising :hilarious:

    That is a great idea. I have not seen such a thing over here. I guess we may have at last found a use for empty testing strip pots!

    L crackers cheese
    D was yummmmm fresh green salad with a curried stuffed mushrooms ...
    The big mushrooms were stuffed with a corse chopped onion, mushroom, courgette, carrot & red pepper .. this mix veg was fried off with a stock cube and curry powder and a splash of vegetarian beer... when softish a big spoon of full fat yogurt was added to the chopped veg to make a sauce .. this was then piled onto the big flat mushrooms and put in the hot oven for a good half hour ... it was lovely the oil and vinegar dressing for the salad has a little curry kick as well.
    :cat:Who said life was too short to stuff a mushroom

  12. Yesterday

    Brunch: Lidl roll with red pepper houmous and two Linda Mac sausages
    Dinner: chickpea curry, curried mushrooms, spicy yogurt, poppadoms

    The curried mushrooms recipe was from the new book. Quite mild, but that was good as the chickpea curry is very hot. I would make it again.

    Another vegetarian joining in. Low carbs and high-ish fat seems to be working.

    Today's been a bit different as I wanted a Hot Cross Bun after the Good Friday Service! So moved things round a bit.

    B. Natural Greek Yogurt and satsuma
    Early L. Omelette with mushrooms, leeks and green pepper.
    Hot Cross Bun.
    Supper. Carrot soup.
