    As it was me that took your thread off topic, the least I can do is to bring it back 'on topic'. :)

    Today I have had a ham, cheese and pickle sandwich using 2 slices of wholemeal bread with olive spread and mayonaise for lunch and for dinner I had some mashed sweet potato, nothing added.. no butter, salt or anything else (apart from the water they were boiled in), peas, sweetcorn and two mini pork/ham/cheese things in breadcrumbs from Lidl (cant remember the french sounding name for them). And too much tomato sauce. :D And I may have a couple of small scoops of mint/dark chocolate ice cream later.... errr.. now actually. Bye :D

    Today was pay day :D That means it's been 'Lidl Day'. :D Sorry... I'm not trying to advertise on their behalf. There are other similar brands :D

    So one thing I bought from a reasonably priced supermarket today was a 2 pack of very reasonably priced Lamb Steaks.

    I did not have a very good morning today and did not get out of bed until 2pm so had no breakfast or lunch :(

    However I had one of the Lamb Steaks for dinner with some left over mashed sweet potato, sweetcorn and peas from last night. And too much mint sauce! :D

    Anyway all together there was (if I worked it out correctly) only 75g carbs of both sugar and saturated fats. So 5u of NovaRapid (other brands are available) was all that was required for bolus insulin.

    Glucose level currently at 6.5. Three hours after eating. the above.

    Going to have a bowl of Alpen w/milk tonight before I retire. That should be appx 4u of bolus insulin. Target glucose level for tomorrow 9am is 6.0 (mmol/L)

    Good night all :)

    Thanks. So far so good. However I really do need to start cutting out more fat. I have put on a lot of weight since I was diagnosed.

    What you had yesterday sounded nice. :)

    Tonight I'm cooking for my parents too. :hilarious:

    On the menu....
    1 Kg Smoked Ham Joint slow cooked (3 1/2 hrs @ 160c) with 2 x finely sliced onions, 3 large sliced apples 2 x 500ml cans of Scrumpy Jack cider, a knob of butter and a couple of tablespoons of olive oil.
    New potatoes roasted in some goose fat, butter, olive oil and 2 x big freshly pressed/squeezed garlic cloves.
    Boiled carrots, petit pois, sweetcorn, broccoli and cauliflower.
    Served with optional bramley apple sauce. Oh and some tomato sauce for me. :D

    You have probably realized by now that I am a tomato sauce lover. I have it with most meals. :D

    Saving the other lamb steak for tomorrow night. No ones having my lamb but me! :D

    Wow.. That sounds good... although I had never heard of 'basa'. I thought you meant Bass but I googled it and it's a species of cat fish I see. I'm gonna have to try some of that sometime I think. I'll keep my eyes open next time I'm in a 'reasonably priced supermarket'. :D Can you compare the taste of Basa with other similar fish or is it unique?

    We are thinking of bacon and eggs and mushrooms for breakfast, plus my two slices of thin toast for the pills.

    If you like code you will like basa and the goujons we use are by whitby and are sold by sainsburys, ocado, and a few other places and cost at most £1.50 a packet and often can be had at 2 for £2.50
