    Well I confess to doing the same. :D

    Do you make your own low sugar ketchup or do you buy it? I have a sneaky feeling I might have seen it on the shelves in supermarkets.

    You sound a bit like I did a few months back. I have had to recondition my thinking on food in the same way. :D

    The sous vide egg bite is now on the food fairies to do list - remembered I found a recipe some time ago and bacon +gruyere would be tolerable in an emergency.

    Egg bites can also be done in the magic cauldron, if you want or need a faster fix than the sous vide method can deliver. Just sayin'

    Yup low sugar, I have Heinz at the moment 11.4g carb per 100g so I probably had less than 1g carbs worth!

    Yesterday was
    Breakfast: 1 slice HiLo toast, thick butter, tea.
    Lunch: 1 cold chicken thigh Little Gem leaves. Wasnt going to bother but while preparing two cold plates for the boys I succombed.
    Supper: Indian t/a Chicken Bhuna, cauliflower Bhajee, half a bottle dry Rose wine.
    I knew I would pay a price and I did (this mornings FBG) but sometimes dry chicken breast is just not palatable.
    Today: Defo no breakfast though may do small bacon, egg brunch with OH.
    Supper: have defrosted h/m coq au vin and will have brocolli. There is still that half bottle of Rose in the fridge which probably is the culprit too because I get on much better with my beloved G&ST but last night I threw caution to the wind. Need to rein in fast. Happy days everyone.

    An old Fen saying puts it thus: As a hammer does not saw so also an IP does not sous vide eggs.

    It's amazing how much better you feel after a good night's sleep - and my BGs are a bit better today (but a long way from perfect). Mr C, after much deliberation, decided the ideal present to give me after his trip away was some Marks and Spencer chocolate and some of their white Stilton with cranberries (I'm fairly sure he got them from the Doncaster motorway services. Chocolate went straight in the freezer but I couldn't resist the cheese - what a weird texture that cheese has!!!!! Sort of bitty - not nice.

    So, today....

    Breakfast: usual Sunday treat 'full English' of egg, bacon, high meat content chipolatas, mushrooms fried in butter and some baked beans (BG substantially lower after 2 hours PP than it was before eating)
    Lunch: probably a small chunk of the M&S white Stilton with cranberries (which I'll share with the dogs)
    Dinner: seafood dish with prawns, mussels, squid, etc with konjac spaghetti (low calorie/low carb dinner needed after that big breakfast)
    Drinks: decaff coffee, still spring water and a glass or two of red wine

    Not convicted that these were actually made in a water bath - they may have, but it might just be a marketing tag. Anyhow, had these in New York last year and they are just eggs, bacon and cheese (other flavours available) -you get two and they make a decent breakfast or on the go snack. I have made similar at home in muffin tins.

    I normally have a splodge of brown sauce with my cooked breakfast and found that the Morrisons brand was lowest at 3.4g per tablespoon.

    @Chook the story of the White Stilton made me laugh from getting it from the m/w services to sharing it with the dogs. I would have been less PC and binned it. Reminded me of the garage forecourt flowers I used to get until I put a stop to it. Btw who thinks putting dried fruit in cheese is a good idea...bizarre to me!

    Cheap cut flowers are an abomination. But I really hate cut flowers anyway because when I first met Mr C he worked constant nights and good friend of his had persuaded him that it would be a good idea to earn extra money by working for an Undertaker during the day when he should have been asleep (they got paid by the job). One of the 'perks' was to occasionally bring home any cremation flowers as, obviously, there was no grave for them to be placed on. But I didn't know this. So there was me thinking 'Ah, isn't he sweet and thoughtful '. It was my daughter that worked out first where, exactly, the flowers were coming from and she thought it was funny but it gave me the mega creeps and I've never liked cut flowers since.

    Same for me - I just don't understand why people pay out loads of money on funerals. Totally unnecessary.

    Bed Friday 8.4 FBG 7.2. Still getting unexplained surges. The 8.4 was on descent from a 10.8!! I can only assume it's the not feeling too good that is doing it. Saturday, I thought my legs had recovered but shopping soon told me otherwise.
    B. TAG with ADOC.
    L. 1 sausage wrapped in streaky bacon on return from the shops.
    D. Cold cut day. Slice each roast pork, chicken. 2 slices of that Asda halal mortadella with paprika (very addictive) , 2 tiny slices of each of the German sausage selection, veggie chips, coleslaw, egg mayonnaise.
    Coffee later with 1/3 PhD raspberry bar.
    Washing machine will require a Samsung engineer. Error codes indicated a water problem. No? Really? Having checked the filters and the infill filter, no kinks in hoses decided to go again. Machine is overfilling - water doesnt want to stop. Watched it like a hawk and its draining fine so no Niagara Falls in the kitchen this time.
    Today - legs a bit better. Bed 7.8 FBG was also 7.8 and no pre bed horror reading. Did get a DP into the low 8's but that's better than the last few days.
    B. TAG with ADOC. Slice of that Asda mortadella with paprika. Got a Dr Almond eifel brot on the go and had 2 slices of that later with pate.
    L. TAG with ADOC. 2 Squares Godiva 90%.
    D. Usual Campari and soda. Main might vary. Making Hubby an individual beef Wellington. I have the fillet and a mushroom/pate mix but I'm in the process of attempting a low carb flaky pastry which may or may not work. Still got 4 more roll, fold, turn, roll, fold, chill to go. It's getting more pastry like but not convinced yet. Will cook a bit on it's own as I dont want to ruin the fillet. Further info to follow,
    Will probably have veggie chips, mushrooms and spinach with it.
    Watch this space.

    L - went with friends to an all-you-can-eat buffet brunch. Was actually lunch. With breakfast pastries. And tiramisu. Say no more:oops:
    D - boiled eggs with sausage dipping 'soldiers'
