    Too much of the slippery slope lately e.g. down to the cafe for egg and chips when there is a prawn salad in the fridge. I blame the cold, wet weather.
    B. HiLo toast with mackerel pate and cucumbers, HiLo toast with butter and vegemite, black tea, black coffee.
    L. In restaurant. Halloumi salad with hummus, flatbread, diet coke, black coffee.
    D. Feta and watermelon salad then leftover vege curry and dhal.

    Hope your knee improves soon. Glad to hear that you scored on the food front in Spain. Going on holiday can always be a bit of a gamble and I resist having to fill a cabin bag with HiLo bread and nuts if flying on the cheap.

    @shelley262 hope the knee heals soon and father;s day sounds as though it went well. To the food: B= tea then a CWC. NE1 around 14.20 was acovado and mackerel salad - 2 tins of mackerel today. NE2 around 18.00 was egg and cheese salad with the highly functional vinaigrette. I did have another CWC in between the NE's can't work out why and not very impressed with myself.

    Evening all, how lovely to see the empty seats around the dinner table full again - good to see you back @shelley262 and @Chook. Shame about the weather @Chook but it sounds like you enjoyed the break anyway. Hugs for the knee injury @shelley262 but I’m glad the food was good and hope your mum fells better soon.
    Spent today with young Dennis in the house or garden. Vet check tomorrow then we will be able to go out and about, although his little legs might not take us far.
    Just CWC this morning
    Lunch- to remind me of my holiday and also since @PenguinMum has had this meal often recently and made me miss it - moules. From Sainsbury’s so not a patch on the fresh Scottish ones I had or the Cornish ones she had but never mind.
    D: DD Keto Asian cabbage stir fry. Still trying to find Fodmaps menus which match lchf. Had to miss out the onions, garlic and chilli from this dish so it was bland really.
    Sf jelly and cream afterwards.

    Sounds like you had a good day with Dennis. Sympathise with LC and fodmap but at least you like lc so 1 person in your household is happy. Have you come across this link? https://www.monashfodmap.com/blog/cooking-with-onion-and-garlic-myths-and/

    Are you needing to do fodmaps for you or other family members? Sounds very difficult especially the seasoning I love chilli.

    Woke up to a 7.0 this morning so after a couple of teas had small slice HiLo toast cooled then with lots of butter. Didnt have lunch tested at 2pm and was 6.0 so powered through. Got busy early evening so didnt test but have just eaten baked chicken breast with green rice (not rice but green veg) and a Lo Cal jelly.
    @shelley262 sorry about your knee and hope it heals [email protected] did go to S and got food in for the teo of us for week but forgot about Moules though we probably need to leave a bit of a gap after all the indulgence in Cornwall. Hope little Dennis continues to settle well and you all have a good night again.

    Thanks very much for the link - very interesting, I will be making garlic infused oil tomorrow, great idea. Also the green bits of spring onions are a cheering addition.

    Chives are also good. I had forgotten about those until this weekend.

    It’s for middle daughter who’s IBS has flared up quite debilitatingly recently. She’s been eating lchf which may well have exacerbated her condition. Most of the things we’ve been eating are not the things she should eat. We will work it out somehow, I like spicy food too but I have a ‘chilli mill’ to grind dried chillis onto food which I’ll be putting to good use.

    The S ones weren’t a patch on fresh from the Cornish coast. Probably just as well you forgot.
    Hope your almost Omad day helps your bg levels to beat the post holiday blues.

    I did wonder about using chives, wish I’d seen your article, or looked it up myself earlier.

    Was a bit disorganised today.
    Morning had a cup of weak tea with dash cream then forgot to make myself breakfast.
    Lunch: 3 oz Roast Pork, sprouts, broccoli, fingerful of swede. decaf tea and dash of cream.
    Late supper 20:00 - Burger, egg, small tomato. Followed by berries and Cream.
    Decaf coffee - you guessed it with cream. (I bought some really thick cream which I absolutely love. Little wonder I struggling to lose weight)
