    Hi all. I'm finally back at home after 4 months away! I confess to having some carbs on the journey (24 hours of flying with a 2 year old and a 10 month old will test the strongest will) but then I subsequently realised that my journey pretty much equated to a dry carb refeed. So we'll see what happens. Anyway this was the first EVER long haul flight that I haven't had swollen ankles at all. On the way out 4 months ago they did swell but they returned to normal within a day whereas it used to take 3 days.

    Anyway, to food yesterday at home:
    - B/L: omelette with cheese, onion and tomato, mushrooms on the side.
    - snack: a few hazelnuts.
    - dinner: my first go at courgette spaghetti using the betti bossi veg twister that I got in Aus. The twister works really well but I think my courgetti treatment needs refining as I WAY over-salted it to remove the water to the point that I couldn't rinse off the saltiness.i later read that a sprinkling of salt is enough so will try that but does anyone else use a spiralizer or similar who has any tips re drying the courgette spaghetti so that it doesn't get too soggy when cooked? I would ideally like to quickly wok-fry it in butter. I guess I could pop it in the oven instead? I know I can eat it raw and will give that a go too. Anyway I had it with some red pepper pieces, tuna, red pesto and grated cheddar. It would have been amazing if less salty.

    Good morning... welcome back! I will post a recipe for you... why did you salt the courgettes? This recipe does not call for that... I bought a spiralizer but it's been delivered to the UK and I will not see it till May... I'm looking forward to trying it... courgettes in ribbon works well though... it's not the easiest thing to do and you waste a bit, but it's so nice to have 'pasta'... my daughter-in-law does it with a lemon zest, dill, creme fraiche and flaked poached salmon sauce.. very nice, and so easy on the tummy... :) Sorry, forgot the file... it's in the next post..

    Hi Susikav I am well thanks, I assume you mean with the wife, poor love has got to have a wisdom tooth out on the side that is only just healing, and they have to cut open her gum, they won't start radiotherapy until this has been done, so that's next Tuesday, then a week recovery and then start at MV we think, hospital dentist thinks that's the schedule anyway, so just a little bit more before we can start the final journey!

    Glad to hear that wife is being looked after and that her treatment is progressing albeit with a wisdom tooth extraction thrown in fir good measure.

    Food not very exciting here of late as I seem to have settled into a salad phase - so tuna salad for lunch today and spicy chicken slices with more salad tonight. Lunch tomorrow will be a chorizo frittata with salad and then steak salad for tea. I may start to look like a lettuce soon.

    Hi guys! Long time no see.

    B: coffeencream, eggsnbacon, flaxseed bap.
    L: 9 bar
    D: lamb mince with onion, tomato, herbs and enough garlic to drop a charging wildebeest at 50 paces. Broccoli and asparagus.

    A mere smidge of dark choc. That may have accidentally fallen off a dark choc Easter egg that seems to have slipped its wrapper. Very odd.

    :) I'll know just what to do the next time a wildebeest is charging through my life.... I find that dark chocolate eggs have that slipping tendency... but in our house they tend to do it more than once... shocking isn't it?

    I made oopsies to show off to my husband this morning and they're quite flat and not a bit like they were last time... :( They will probably taste just as good though.. I wonder if my BP needs replacing?
    Yesterday had oopsie ham, lettuce and Philly sandwich
    Lunch was salad with pastrami, cambazola and olives
    Supper was chicken soup with all the veg I could find... hot chocolate with cream to take to bed...
