SF not KY!
(SF = sugar free)
I'm never going to be able to eat sugar free jelly again.
Sorry for not checking in until now and thank you for all the well wishes. It's been a tough few days, but we do seem to be turning a corner. Mr B's Anti-VEGF treatment went as well as it could do really...the staff were all lovely and reassured him that this was likely to be a 'blip'. There had been a build up of fluid in the macular again and they have concluded they need to go back to 4 weekly intervals for his injections. It has taken him some time to recover from what was a very anxious episode. The good news is he's already started to see improvements again, although his vision is not back to how it was a couple of weeks ago. It's just a waiting game really. We kept busy today, did plenty gardening (our jungle is now looking more garden like!) and decided to get out the barbecue (even though it was overcast and chilly). I somehow completely forgot about Eurovision!
Sending hugs to @gennepher - what a scary experience for you. Glad to hear you had a lovely doctor, I know it makes a massive difference to my husband when hospital staff are patient and caring.
Hugs too for @ianpspurs and Julie. Always a tough call for any pet owner, but a true act of love.
Or is that a bra?
As for chia pud, I think kefir chia pud would be an interesting twist.
Sorry folks, been MIA last two days, and i seem to have forgotten what i ate yesterday.
NE1: scram eggs with chili butter
2: cream cheese and dark choc
3: dry ribs and egg foo yung
Two whole weeks of puppy. She’s a lovely little thing, but the Learn Switch hasn’t switched on, yet.
@ianpspurs Ikm sorry about your lab. There aren’t words.
In food related news....
B: Lemon chia, berries and almonds. Black coffee
L: Grilled Reuben type sandwich LC style. Grilled very thin fathead dough flatbread (made in advance and frozen) pastrami, raclette cheese, cornichon, sauerkraut and plenty mustard. Served with hm coleslaw and salad leaves. This was awesome....I zapped them briefly in the microwave to ensure the cheese melted properly.
D: Barbecued trio of sausages.....frankfurters, Gouda and jalapeño frankfurter and high percentage regular pork sausages. Served with barbecued Mediterranean veg - peppers, courgette and aubergine. Oh, and some asparagus too.
Lunch yesterday: Just a dingo's lunch, a drink of water and quick look around at the block replacing the water pump.
Dinner: Steak and veggies, brown onion gravy.
Breakfast: Cheese and mushroom omelette, bacon, block tomatoes, reheated spudlite.
Drinks: Black coffee no sugar / sweetener, a lot of water, beer when we got home.
Our neighbour / caretaker said that we have got a new addition to our flock he saw a pair of brush turkeys on our side of the fence last week. So they may build a mound if they stay.
That is good news. Fingers crossed he’ll continue to get better. Hugs.
Well, not without thinking eeww first.
Breakfast of left-over omlette ( = 2 eggs with almond/coconut milk) plus broocolini.
Plus 2 cuppas of bullet-proof coffee.
Confession time: after a long walk yesterday, at about the 6 hour mark when BSLs tend to fall i had already reduced my basal insulin pump rate but had 3 spoonsful of a peanut butter concoction. Went done well and bsls behaved!
Only thing is the sore muscles but such is the 'virtue' of exercise !!
Sorry if I put you off the SF jelly.
I think your wonderful food sounds too good for an irritating programme like the ESC. OH was glued to it but I don’t get it myself. And when they voted someone like the conchita sausage to win then ...........
Edit. OH is chortling that Germany came 24th but that they beat UK who came last. Competitive these Germans.
Thank you for my hugs. They are greatly appreciated.
It makes all the difference when hospital staff are smiling and patient and caring as though you are the only patient they have that day.
Hugs for you and your husband.
Late again, not sure why or where yesterday evening went to. Completely forgot about Eurovision.
B coffee with cream
L DD Flying Jacob casserole (without the banana) and salad
D Ham and cheese
B today as above.
I don’t know what it is about it, the songs are always terrible and UK never does well these days. It’s just so camp and cheesy. I love the commentary too. Terry Wogan was brilliant but now Graham Norton’s doing it he’s also very funny and disparaging of all the acts. Nobody takes it very seriously. I thought Madonna in the interval was one of the worsts acts of all!
The good thing about it was it forced me to go to my gym rather than stay in the living room while Julie watched it. Pity I didn't have the stamina to peddle away until the end but I did drop off in the chair. (I dislike Norton intensely)
I quite enjoyed it in a strange kind of way but its too long, too many terrible songs. I think its time Madge stopped dressing up silly but wow she is flexible for an old girl! I dont know whats with the eye patch though! I love her back catalogue but wont be buying into this reinvention!
@ianpspurs and @PenguinMum I agree with you both, it’s overlong and tedious, but it’s a good excuse for a get together and some nice food.
I don’t like Graham Norton’s chat show - his sychophantic style annoys me but I like him on this, he doesn’t take it seriously.
The Eurovision Song Contest is the most excruciating TV of the year.
Can we get back to ‘what did we eat today now’, please.
I hate nagging this thread to get back on topic, because I love this thread, and I love all of you.
But the reason it is such a fab thread, is because of the magic combo of lots of food, and friendly updates.
When that gets swamped by other stuff, it stops being those things.
Don’t get me wrong. Just because I loathe the Eurovision doesn’t mean you aren’t all welcome to chunter ad infinitum.
But maybe take it to a chat thread.
I know we have had hysterically funny EVSC chat threads in other years.
