Today's main meal looks like yesterday's frittata but this is a half of a pizza made from a low carb pizza base topped with passata ( had base and passata portion in freezer) plus left over cooked meats - chicken and sausage and topped with some fried chilli and garlic plus lots of grated vintage cheese. Served with salads.Just had LC chocolate brownie with decaffeinated coffee.

Don't worry about it, those types of mistakes happen to the best of us, as proven by you! ;)

I made a very lazy veggie soup yesterday: 25 cent bag of pre-cut 'soup veggies' to be used on friday. Looked and smelled fine on sunday, so soup!
I've never made a 'traditional' Dutch veggie soup in my life so I simply followed the directions on the bag of veggies: Boiled water with a stock cube (herbs, not meat). Added small balls of minced meat, I accidentally bought pre-spiced mince, which saved me the trouble of adding spices to the meat. Cooked for a bit, added bag of veggies, cooked a bit longer, ready! :joyful:
Life got in the way of eating at a sensible time so it was just soup yesterday, followed by chicory with hummus and pork scratchings with aioli in bed.

Today I had more of the soup for a late lunch or an early starter, not sure which.

Main meal was a summery thing of bits and bobs, nicely compensating for the absence of veggies with our pure carnivore bbq on saturday:
A large plate of tomatoes and mozzarella with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper, lettuce leaves with chorizo and gorgonzola, and half of the chilli shrimp in the picture. :hungry:

I kind of make it up as I go along, but here goes!
- slice and fry 1/2 onion
- cut liver into bite sized pieces and coat in a small amount of seasoned flour.
- when onion is soft add the liver and fry slowly til cooked.
- stir in 300mls of stock.
- continue to cook until gravy is reduced to required thickness.

Sounds perfect for warm weather @Antje77 especially the tomato and mozzarella creation.

Btw in North America, they would probably describe the seafood as shrimps. Here in the UK we call those prawns; shrimps are somewhat smaller and have their own distinctive flavour. I often serve prawns and brown shrimps in the same seafood salad. They taste quite different from each other, even when unadorned with dressing.

Earlier I had the other half of yesterdays chilli prawns with a beer in the garden.

Just now I had the last of the veggie soup (shared with the dogs) and 3 smallish but very tasty meatballs with mustard.
The meatballs contain lots of onion, garlic and grated cheese, and of course various spices and an egg. :hungry:

Today, on the hottest day of the year (in the UK), I had a home made chicken, mushroom, salmon and prawn Madras, with a small portion of wild rice. The weather wasn't that hot, and neither was the curry; I quite enjoyed it.

Just what the doctor ordered @IanBish with a dose of decent June weather.
How does wild rice compare to basmati rice carb wise?

Hi All
Have been mostly eating like a caterpillar since Monday! Lots of leafy salads with sliced ham, quiche with crust cut off, cheesy coleslaw, cheese. Last night for supper I just had three scrambled eggs accompanied by 6 roasted asparagus spears. Enjoyed so much might repeat this evening. Then thats the very last asparagus from the farm down the road for this year. Brekkies are still the usual slice LC toast, cooled with good butter and copious tea

I’ve been meaning to say, take a look at the Low Carb Food company bread. That’s the company I always use. I buy their rolls, loaves and pizza bases. their email today reminded me to order more and tell you!

Thanks for this. Received bread and rolls this morning. Lovely and fresh. Rolls were delicious. All else is in freezer. Was concerned about delivery here to Northern Ireland. I ordered Sunday, they were sent out Monday afternoon and I have them here today - Wednesday.
