  3. When I was a youngster, I used to drink Pernod and blackcurrant poured into a pint of snakebite. I now live in a strange world where Pernod is the healthiest part of that drink lol

    Goodness, I remember smelling that (particularly vile) drink on my friends' breath. It has not improved while stored in my memory! It was really trendy for a while. Madness! :eek:

    Snakebite yes, Pernod no no no. Used to drink pints of scrumpy snakebite with a Southern comfort and dry ginger chaser. Now I don't drink at all, bar the odd shandy with my curry and even that's off the menu now.

    Not sure how low carb you are being, but you could always use a tortilla wrap as base but cut the middle out like one of those Pizza Express things and fill centre with salad? Almost a pizza.

    @RosieLKH I am making courgette spaghetti for the first time tomorrow. Any hints on the best way to cook it?

    I think that Rosie uses an aubergine slice as a pizza base which might work with plenty of topping. It's funny what we all crave as I'd not miss pizza if I never have it again.
    We're having steak again as off out and wanted a quick and easy meal. Tomorrow will be leftover roast dinner and I'll make a big pan of ragu to do stuff to for rest of week. It's hard thinking of stuff that I can have with no additional carbs and that Mr E can add a bucket load of carbs to.
     
  14. This is my favourite (only?) courgette spaghetti recipe...and it's cheese free!

    Talking of which, the BIG cheese news is that Sainsburys have reintroduced their vegetarian basic Italian hard cheese after a very long absence. It is like Parmesan but without the rennet. Having some tonight to disguise the fact that I will be eating chickpea stew for the third night running :bored:

    I fry it from raw in olive oil with a little garlic salt or garlic and seasoning. Yesterday I cooked some bacon bits in the pan first, then added the courgette.
    I made my first lots using a potato peeler to get the courgette strips, but now I've bought a julienne cutter, which is like a potato peeler but makes thinner strips.
    It takes just a few minutes to cook, so if you plan to have a sauce get that ready first. It's fab just with a bit of parmesan on though.

    Watch out for jars of pesto, which often have cheese in them.

    Breakfast - 2 rashers of fab butcher's bacon and a fried egg.
    Lunch - Bovril drink, 2 slices salami, 6 almonds and 2 teaspoons pumpkin seeds.
    Dinner - not had it yet but it will be a fresh sardine and an aubergine pizza.

    Aubergine pizza my way is 2 slices of aubergine, lightly buttered & seasoned on both sides. A slice of tomato on top, or several tin cherry toms, or some chopped tin stuff. Sprinkle of salt & pepper, or garlic salt. Bake in oven for 30 mins, and ten mins from end add some grated cheese. Haven't had mozzerella yet for it, but that my next stage!

  19. Yes, the jars usually have real Parmesan in them so I avoid them anyway. The recipe I posted, btw, is for raw courgette spaghetti, but I fry it quickly in the wok to soften it a bit.
