    Coyo
    They are ridiculously expensive yogurts made with coconut milk, not cow's milk.
    Delicious!
    Only 0.5g carbs per pot, and a good chug of fat :happy:
    But the price is prohibitive.
    I don't buy them, but Mr B gets them for me every time he goes shopping unsupervised.
    Because he loves me. :couchpotato:
    And because he wants me to cook another breakfast slab ;)

    Chicken fest over, am now quite stuffed!

    I have a question hopefully some of you may be able to offer your opinion. There is still a fair bit of meat on the chicken, which I'd like to boil up, make a stock and use with the flesh to make homemade soup. Couple of issues though as it was bought ready roasted at the supermarket-is it safe to freeze the chicken for now and then thaw on day of cooking? Will it then be safe to potentially heat it up to make the stock/soup and then again if I can't eat it all in one go?
    Whenever I ask the assistant, they say you should eat on the day, not reheat and not freeze. Don't want to waste the leftovers - any advice please?

    I would go for it, but make sure the soup is boiled well before eating.

    Personally I'd not freeze it as mate of my mum's did that and ended up on drip in hospital with food poisoning. Why not just boil it tonight and freeze stock in useable portions.

    Thanks for the warning. I think I will leave it in the fridge overnight, make the stock and soup tomorrow and consume over the weekend. At least that way all I'm doing is boiling it up.

    That should be fine. Just make sure you reheat the portions of soup to boiling. x

    I often freeze cooked meat of all kinds and use later in soup or stir fry, although I confess to using defrosted ham cold. Meat for freezing should be off the bone or carcass I think. The carcass or bones can be boiled for stock (pressure cooker preferably) same day. We used to keep a stock pot going permanently in the winter, revitalised & boiled up every day.
    This is just my opinion and I have only my survival so far as corroboration.

    Cauli cheese mash on top of shepherds' pie is the best thing ever. Even Mr e likes it.

    Always tastes best when the price has been reduced ;)

    Well if I'd roasted a chicken myself and planned to do the same as you I would happily freeze carcass and meat for soup at a later date. Not so sure I would reheat again though

    OK, today
    Brekky - slice of well buttered wholemeal/wheatgerm toast
    lunch - 4 veggie Cumberland sausages in cider apple sauce with green beans
    Tea - carvery....beef, peas, cabbage, roasties and gravy. Thought I was hungry but after I'd eaten roasties, peas, bit of the cabbage and 2 slices of the beef I didn't want any more...just 2 cups of tea with one of those little pots of milk in each

    Snacks
    2 handful s of fruit and nuts, the last 2 of the sausages and 2 very naughty but tiny choc fudge topped cup cakes - not much more than inch and a bit square and half inch deep - nope, didn't test - wouldn't change that I ate them and won't be an encore ;)

    Think I did a post earlier, but just to recap:
    Brunch: slice of ham, German smoked cheese, baby plum toms with a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar 3 cups of coffee with cream
    Mid afternoon: cream, yoghurt and berries with a sprinkle of flaked almonds
    D: decided to try my hand at a fritatta with ham hock, asparagus, and lots of strong cheese. Was very nice, though I say so myself, so I finished it off for supper :) stuffed now!
