    I’m glad to see that @shelley262 has given you a link to the thread - I only use the app and I’ve never been able to figure out how to copy links in it.
    I think stress levels and general travelling make a difference too like the others have mentioned. Hope your bg levels settle soon

    I've added a cup/mug quiche to CMT. It's a simple, one person, microwave, crustless quiche. Inspiration was an Australian web site but I've amended it so it is lower carb and less dense!
    If you're not on the CMT circle here's the ingredients and method.
    2 medium eggs separated
    50g cooked broccoli roughly chopped
    30g sliced ham chopped into smaller bits
    1 spring onion thinly chopped
    2 tablespoons grated parmesan
    1 tablespoon Grated cheddar plus a little extra to sprinkle
    1 tablespoon chopped parsley
    1 cherry tomato sliced
    Seasoning

    1. Whisk egg whites into stiff peaks.

    2. Beat the yolks in a separate bowl then add broccoli, ham, spring onion, parmesan, cheddar and parsley. Mix and season.

    3. Fold in the egg whites carefully then transfer to the cup/mug.

    4. Put the sliced cherry tomato on top then sprinkle with the remaining cheddar cheese.

    5. Cook in the microwave for 2 mins 30sec. If your micro is 1000w you can probably drop to 2

    361A2CC7-2EEA-47B4-BACC-4D06FC90EA77.jpeg I'm back after being AWOL for a while. We have had a lovely birthday week (our birthdays are 5 days apart), including a few days in North Wales. Back with a bump today, as Mr B had his Eye Hospital appointment, but all was well this time. Injection in the left eye today which is still improving, but the decision to leave the right until 4 weeks time.

    It's been a bit of a disjointed day food wise due to the hospital appointment (chia pudding for breakfast, babybel, nuts etc for lunch, LC cake and CWC for dinner!). I just wanted to share this, which was made for Mr B's birthday yesterday. Tiramisu cake....a hybrid of a couple of recipes. It was lovely and slices really well! Just hope it freezes ok.

    Now to try and catch up on what's going on with everyone else's post!

    Sleeping late and 2 meals seems to be the theme today. B= tea then CWC; NE1 @ 14.00 was fluffy omelette - 3 of our eggs, mushrooms and cheese (100 gms) with 1 tblsp of reduced salt and sugar tommyK. NE2 @ 18.40 ish was salad with 2 chicken legs. Double the protein compared to average and slightly more cals (still negative ) within an lc framework. Need to avoid snap judgement on this if it raises weight or doesn't immediately give more energy. @BibaBee happy birthday to both yourself and Mr B - June is when the best people have their birthday. Cake looks a triumph I am sure it was well received by all who sampled it.

    As MrB plsyed golf today, I was in the hot seat for dinner. Needless to say I kept it somple. I blame the simplicity on the need to be pretty flexible on eating times, because MrB is always hungry after golf, bearing in mind he's had exercise and missed lunch.

    This evening I made this: https://twosleevers.com/carne-guisada/ Today, as it was the first time I'd made it, I followed the recipe exactly. Next time I'd tweak it abit, but it was cerainly very tasty indeed. Next time, whilst not Mexican, there'll some cream or more likely sour cream go in just before serving, to up the calories.

    It's a keeper, but so many of Urvashi's recipes are.

    If you don't have an instant pot, or pressure cooker, it'd do extremely well by slow cooker, I think.

    Thanks DJC3. It’s very aggravating when it goes up when I haven’t expected it.

    No breakfast Tea
    Cwc
    Lunch was korma curry sauce with left over roast lamb plus sliced mushrooms and spinach with cauli rice. I must admit to half a tspn of mango chutney. ;)
    Berries and Greek yoghurt
    Pm nuts and tea
    Evening celery sticks, 1 slice LC bread, cheddar cheese cubes and some humus.
    G & T - Schweppes slimline tonic is much better!

    I am very envious of the late sleepers today, sleeping on a hard sofa in a room with a nearly toilet trained pup is not a recipe for a lie in.
    @Viv19 glad you found a slimline tonic you like. Schweppes was always my favourite.
    @DCUKMod Urvashi’s Carne guisada is a favourite in our house too
    @BibaBee the cake looks amazing happy birthday to you both. I’m so glad Mr Bs eye appointment went ok today.
    Didn’t get round to breakfast again, apart from CWC in fact it’ll be an OMAD day - very unusual for me.
    Lunch was a tin of mackerel in oo with avocado, leaves and walnuts. A slice of cheddar afterwards.
    Went to yoga this evening as I’m back up in this area, I’ve missed it a lot and can’t find the same sort of class in Cornwall. I can’t eat beforehand and it’s too late now, so perhaps a DCWC

    Break: 2 eggs scrambled with Philly.
    Decaf tea with dash of cream.
    Lunch: Hard boiled Egg - Bouillon cube with Butter. Egg needed eating and couldn't be bothered to do much else, I also like bouillon and butter.
    Cup of weak decaf coffee with tsp cream.
    Supper: 3oz Pork (leftovers again) with avocado and spinach salad. Followed by a teaspoonful of heavy cream.
    Cup of weak decaf tea with dash cream.
    Cup of weak black decaf coffee.

    I really need to find something more appetizing. Might have fish tomorrow.

    Thank you @DJC3 and @ianpspurs for the birthday well wishes. The cake went down very well indeed. Just a relief to get through our birthdays with no health crisis this year.

    @DJC3 I'm dying to see photos of your new pup...I'll have to check out you other posts.

    Evening all. Another one returning to the fold here.

    @Chook and @BibaBee good to see you posting again and happy belated birthday bibabee.

    @shelley262 sorry to hear about the knee - hope it soon recovers and that your mum is ok.

    @DJC3 Dennis is adorable and sleeping in is definitely overrated ;)

    The weekend was a long one involving 80th Birthday celebrations for my dad and detailed logistics to get him from a - b now that he’s far less mobile. Lots of taxis involved.

    Saturday’s food was lunch of a very average T-bone steak with butter and a side of grilled halloumi. Dinner was a couple of bits of the delicious Lidl cheddar with butter.

    Sunday - Dad’s Birthday and Father’s Day all in one. Began with breakfast of chocolate olive oil cake and cream followed by a couple of home made chocolates with Brazil nuts. Dinner at a restaurant local to me. Never been before but will definitely be back - simple, real food cooked well and excellent service. Had a bunless burger with added cheese, bacon and 2 fried eggs. They had double cream so had some of that in my tea before tucking in to some more cake and cream when I got home.

    Back to work today. Lunch was 2 fried eggs, 3 rashers bacon and some grated cheese. Dinner was a bunless double cheeseburger with bacon, onion and mayonnaise at Shake Shack followed by some Hotel Chocolat 100% egg with cream. A small piece of Lidl cheddar after Pilates.

    Bed 6.7 FBG 6.6. Well once again this was supposed to be my "freedom from school pickup" day and once again it wasn't. At least they were just going home. Mum was lucky I got back in time as we went on the annual mass purchasing of plants to brighten the borders and it isn't a quick trip. Still Dobbies had 20% off everything so Hubby kindly bought me a new casual jacket. SIL & BIL are on their way from Australia to Dubai on the first leg of their journey. No 2 was a grump this afternoon as they were cutting the grass on the playing fields so his eyes flared up.
    Fingers crossed it's dry tomorrow to get planting underway.
    B. TAG with ADOC. School run then Aqua so no time to eat.
    L. Off to Dobbies then with the unexpected school pick up a very late slice of GF black pudding and a fried egg (double yolk again).
    D. Rack of pork ribs with the dry chimichurri rub, lettuce, 3 mini tomatoes, cucumber, 1/2 avocado, 1 beetroot and helmans.
    2 bits Lindt 90%.
    Happy birthdays @BibaBee and so glad Mr B's eyesight is improving again.

    @Rachox have a lovely holiday, looking forward to reading your winging it choices.
    @Goonergal is the Lidl cheese the Castillo Devonshire extra mature Tickler? I went in there the other day but there were so many cheeses and I couldn’t remember which it was.
