    MrB has sacrificed some plums, for the greater good, a quiet life and some apricots. They're currently doing their own thing in the SV. Theoretically, they will be "done" in about 30 minutes, but I might give them a bit longer.

    I can't for the life of me recall where I got this image, but I saved it.

    Gee - I'm well behind again. Been trying to do a zillion things at once inbetween my normal routines. Took to today to put a dent in Christmas shopping though. Tree and decorations are now out and ready to be assembled tomorrow. Tree is up and lights are tested. I have to have everything done next week as the week after is hopeless. Anyway, back to food

    Wednesday - bed 4.7 FBG 5.6

    B. Tassimo Americano grande with a dash of cream.
    L. Was running about a bit so it was a quick grabbed, late lunch of M&S Honduran prawns, mozzarella Pearl's, anchovies and the whipped cream cheese.
    D. Hubby was at the football so I had 8 chicken wings with cheese and chive dip. I did also have raspberry chia pudding with 8 raspberries.

    Thursday - Got into Aqua Zumba so went wandering up there in the rain. Did a bit more Christmas shopping after.

    Bed 6.4 FBG 5.5

    B. Just the Tassimo Americano and a dash of cream.
    L. Much later - bit more of the M&S Honduran prawns, anchovies and mozzarella Pearl's.
    D. Was seduced by the thought of @DJC3 lamb so did a lamb casserole in the IP with mushrooms, celery, rosemary, red wine vinegar and garlic. Boys enjoyed it too. I had it with roast onion, courgette, tomato and peppers.
    Chia pudding again with raspberries.

    Bed 5.6 FBG 5.8 - half day at school and still kind of wet but not icy.

    B. 2 scrambled eggs with a couple of rashers of crispy streaky bacon. Tassimo Americano grande with a dash of cream.
    L. Nothing - had to get boys fed then of to the Christmas craft time at the library to make Robin's, Angels and baubles. No 2 looked like a decoration - covered in glitter. Back to sorting out decorations and got most of the Christmas presents ordered for collection.
    D. Not too hungry. Had another M&S thing - chicken breast with some kind of chorizo topping and 5 tiny wings. Finished the chia pudding with 6 raspberries.

    Must try to stay on top of this but it's difficult with so much going on.

    Well done on your results @Tori71 you must be really pleased with the downward direction of your results not far now from a normal reading only a couple of points to go. Plus the change has been achieved in three months - if you keep going like you have that you’ll get there by next test.

    Welcome to this thread hope it helps you. I find it makes me think a bit more carefully about what I eat knowing I’m writing it down. Look forward to reading your menus.

    Having let my plum gin go all night in the sous vide, it is now cooling for filtering and bottling later. I didn't add very much sweetener toi mine as I don't have a sweet tooth at all, so I'm sure it won't have gone thicker, but I'll only know once cooled.

    Good day all! Hope everyone is well!! Just stuffed my face with 3 HEX sausages, 2 eggs fried in butter, with a fistful of fresh small round vine tomatoes zapped in a copper, followed by 2 cups of freshly ground coffee to wash it all down with!. Enjoyed every bite of it! Best wishes. Theo

    I'll know where to send it, if it's not to my taste. My all-time fave is still my Ginnamon. No guesses for the two ingredients involved there. :)

    I’ve got some strawberry gin ready to decant and sweeten (erythritol).
    And my sloe gin is infusing till Xmas, when it will be sweetened to taste.

    Then I’m going to try to keep the sloe gin ‘maturing’ for as long as possible before consumption.
    I’ve read that age and quality of gin are both important factors, with reports that it continues to improve for decades.
    Though how anyone has the self control to test this theory is incredible.

    Breakfast - Livlife toast and butter (thinner slices than Hi-lo but not as seedy)
    Lunch - Christmas lunch as a treat for improved blood sugar and cholesterol results yesterday. Turkey topped with bacon, one small roast potato, one quarter of a yorkshire pudding, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, sprouts, stuffing and gravy. Had the kids portion as the adult one looked massive (the quarter yorkshire pudding came as that, it wasn't self denial on my part!!)
    A regular Mocha (40 carbs and my alternative 'pudding'). Thoroughly enjoyed.
    Dinner - Bresaola, cherry tomatoes and olives. Strawberries and cream with a spoonful of chocolate granola.
    Snacks - Nuts!

    Christmas tree is now installed and decorated, let the festive period begin!

    That sounds delicious @Brunneria.

    I agree about self control, although I've never drunk a lot I'm trying to remember that the plum gin is not carb free:eek:

    Hi all hope everyone has had a good day today I’ve been busy getting ready for my trip up north in the morning but am currently sat with my feet up enjoying a glass of my home made lc baileys it’s delish. Think mum will approve. @maglil55 i ended up adding more cream than your recipe - which I really like.
    Breakfast sausage, egg and one slice bacon
    Lunch celery, nuts and cheese followed by half a low carb chocolate bun (once I’ve perfected recipe- it’s just about there - I’ll share it on the forum)
    Mid pm my advent calendar choc
    Dinner cauliflower rice fried with some mushrooms served with chicken curry followed by other half of my choc bun warmed slightly so it went squidgy and served with cream
    I’ve made a low carb trifle to take up to mums with me as well as other food ready for next few days - makes it easier.

    If I were watching sloe gin for decades, it might improve, but I doubt my mental state would!
