    I use Ocado and find they are very good - a bit pricey BUT you can normally get really good offers especially if you are a new customer. I started my mum as a new customer recently and she got lots off her first few shops plus free delivery. Well worth a try and they tend to have lots of low carb stuff too hope you get discount codes sortedworth a search online for new customer codes.
    Edit they also have flash sales on checkout and often include really good meat and fish deals.

    My craving was for the bones in tins of salmon - didn’t want the actual fish so Rest of family lived on salmon sandwiches and salads for months as I went through tins and tins of the stuff just picking the bones out - it was something about the crumbly texture I wanted.

    Quick posting as I’m in the middle of thrashing the girls at Boggle!
    B: 2 boiled eggs and @shelley262 ‘s seedy crackers
    L: More of the seedy crackers with tuna pate. Rhubarb ‘fool’
    D: @Mongolia ‘s crispy sesame tofu with zoodles. Very nice but bg went up by 1.5 which is more than I like. I think I just ate too much of it!

    I am looking at them now. Yes a bit pricey but it will save me some driving about and shopping time. I will get it all delivered each Monday morning while I am working here in the house.

    Yes, there are introductory discounts.

    today I have been brining some duck eggs and finishing off the latest batch of kefir - decided to do a second fermentation with added blackberries. We will have that tomorrow. Kefir seeds now in hybernation in the fridge until we get back from holiday in three weeks time.
    Lunch; some asparagus and broccoli in the fridge so dry fried and then added spices and some beef bone jelly, topped with mozzarella and threw under the grill. Finished off with some lee and perrin.
    Dinner; pan fried chicken with piri piri, a salad and some coleslaw washed down with fermented grape juice.

    Interesting, Dunelm. Are these duck salted eggs? I must admit they are on my list to do when back in UK.

    I'll often us a hard boiled egg as a snack or lunch element, if I have to do a packed lunch, but like a little salt on my eggs, so thought salted eggs could be the way forward.

    A few weeks ago, I got the egg colours mixed up here, thinking the pink eggs were the ready cooked salted eggs, when indeed they are century eggs, and quite, quite "different".

    Oh well. I tried them, but don't think I'll need to t-shirt.

    @shelley262 is Cooper all recovered I hope?
    Hi @West335 ! Nice to meet you
    @Brunneria wonder if your floppies are caused by allergies? We are having a brutal time already and it’s not even April. Fatigue can come from allergies here.
    @DCUKMod ok I looked up century eggs. You are far more adventurous than I. Looks from the description like the smell of the yolk alone would keep me away!

    Lunch seltzer and a decaf while out with Mom.
    First supper early, ravenous: 2/3 tin sardines w olive oil, lc tortilla with almond butter and skyr, celery.
    Out to opera with old work friend.
    Late supper skyr bulletproofed with olive oil, much better than it sounds, and some totally unnecessary mixed nuts.

    In my book, one has to try things to know one doesn't like them. I've tried some things in my time! :)

    Lolol @DCUKMod I consider the sense of smell to be the “gateway” to trying something! Step one: put food near face. Step two: if it makes you feel nauseated just to be near it, don’t put any in your mouth because Step three: no, we don’t want to go there

    You obviously weren't built on the Clyde than. (Constitution to rival an ox.)

    Yes, the egg stall on our Friday market sells a variety of eggs and I like these. Wash the shells, pop into a container, cover with brine and leave for about three weeks - four if you like them more salty.
    Tip for when you have a go; heat water before adding salt to make sure you saturate, then let go cold. I put a zip lock bag with a bit of water in to weigh the eggs down.
    I tried balut once - just the once - no t-shirt either.

    We have an egg man too, doing all sorts of eggs. I've actually eaten a fair few duck eggs here too. I've always liked them.

    What amuses me is the sale of ready boiled eggs, usually with soy sauce I reckon you could buy just about anything here.

    This was something I have come across too. Ready boiled eggs. We were all out viewing the local volcano (a colossal feature in the region and I am a geologist so have an interest in such things) and at one point we dropped into a local shop and it was ready boiled eggs and coconut pie all round.
