    Oh now I’m going to have to do this. I love lamb and my mother, over from France, think that lamb is the only “safe” reared meat left in the world - I wonder if pan frying some cauliflower with some of that marinade would be overdoing it - let’s test that idea.

    To be honest, it's one of those delicious things that just feeds (pun intended) my laziness. Lob some yoghurt and a few spices in a bowl. Add meat and ignore for an indeterminate period.

    Grill, BBQ, air fry or roast. Demolish.

    It'd also be good to marinate cauli florets, then roast/airfry, until those little charred bits form.

    Excellent news on the scan results. Coupled with the eyes and impending lovely A1c a very successful week despite the problems. Not sure how fodmap and gout friendly the tandoori recipe is but I have passed it to the food fairy.

    Breakfast
    Last of the nut granola, must make more.
    2 fried eggs and wilted spinach beet from the garden, tea x 2.
    Displacement activities - kept myself occupied until 11.30 when I finally managed to get myself started on the painting in the shower room. Can you tell it's not a favourite thing of mine? Meanwhile Mr slim is putting plasterboard ceiling up. Very heavy strenuous work. Lunch
    Slice of smoked salmon, piece of baguette, salad, mozzarella, more of the chinese leaf based coleslaw.
    More painting in the afternoon doors this time. Undercoat.
    Dinner, chicken thighs, cooked all in one roasting tray with courgette, both yellow and green, green and yellow peppers, green chilli, garlic and lemon, few tiny onions and two tiny potatoes for each of us. Made enough for two days. Glass of sauvignon, lemon and ginger tea.
    Am off tea and coffee while having some treatment on my teeth. Didn't think I would miss it, but find myself a bit grouchy two days in,:(

    Yesterday’s good:
    Breakfast: usual 1 slice HiLo toast, butter, tea x2.
    Lunch: egg mayo and littlegem leaves
    Supper: a bit of a scratch dinner as often happens on a Thursday
    Fried snipped streaky bacon with a diced red pepper then added in jar Sacla Tomato & Olive concentrated jar (surprisingly LC with big flavour) needed little water from kettle to loosen spoon of black olives from jar and defrosted pack of large prawns. Served with pasta for OH and green rice for me. Really surprisingly tasty!

    I used to love “thrown in microwave” it was quite endearing and made me smile!
    Btw I recently discovered you can wilt down watercress with a knob of butter in a pan just like spinach...might be easier to swallow...just a thought!

    Think the chimp that sometimes sits on @dunelm's shoulder whispering wizard wheezes has migrated to the fens. Julie casually asked if I really needed to spend over £30 on cheese in W.......se - (sent to buy radishes and flowers) - those gals on the deli counter force fed me tasters especially Twisca gouda.. Being smug I replied "O, reason not the need! Our basest beggars / Are in the poorest thing superfluous. / Allow not nature more than nature needs, / Man’s life’s as cheap as beast’s." Completely forgot she went to school in Bermondsey before it was gentrified - language would have made a docker blush. Nurse says when the stitches heal there will be no scars . Can you please reclaim your chimp.

    Evening all.

    So pleased about your scan result @DJC3

    Hope all went well with the bloods, @shelley262

    Two meals again today. Brunch was M&S Serrano ham and manchego cheese rollitos and a small piece of Cornish Cove cheddar.

    Dinner was slow cooked oxtail. Remaining juices and bones have been returned to the slow cooker along with additional bones and juices from earlier meals to create some stronger stock.

    Waitrose trip imminent to address the short rib shortage revealed by freezer stock take.

    Probably simple to guess my menu aside from timings. Tea and small cubes of taster cheese until 2.40. NE1 was current standard 2 xlarge flaxseed crackers, buttered spread with simple mackerel pate - whipped cream cheese and tin of mackerel fillets in EVO. Also had cucumber and vine cherry toms. Then munched some of the Ewes milk gouda. NE2 (6.40 ish) was avocado and egg salad usual suspects but added chicory - that upped the potassium nicely. Still looking after Hagrid's knee but fbg 4.8 and managed to cut the grass on the ditch bank. Felt pleased (with knee and ankle) about carrying the 20kg chicken feed bag on my shoulder until the young girl in the store carried 2 for another man.

    @shelley262 cremant has long been my favourite fizz so I am in good company!
    @Goonergal I love that you do a freezer stocktake I tend to “fly by the seat of my pants” as regards the freezer though I have a great friend who keeps an inventory of meals and portion size and ticks them off as used.

    Don't think it had an oregano crust. Twisca from the deli counter - those gels really bully me. Enjoy your meet up with your friend and the tennis. I can't warm to Federer.
