    Aaah another turn for Dragonbreath Chilli - lush!

    Those of you who can remember back to last Xmas may remember my delight at the World of Warcraft recipe book.
    I thought it was time for another play.

    https://mindfulhearth.com/2017/03/31/cooking-from-world-of-warcraft-dragonbreath-chili/

    Of course i de-carbed it significantly. Less tomato, no beans, and so on... but the essential dragonliness survived.
    Very pleased.
    I also portioned half up into containers, then thickened the rest with gravy granules, for Mr B. He loves a bit of gloop. And now he has it in individual portions. :D

    B was a LC hot choc (HC batons, water and cream)
    L didn’t happen
    D so it was a good portion of Dragonsbreath, and we are having the LC Bakery keto sticky toffee pud after

    I would like to say because it is worthy. Truth is chemo nurse appears to have dripped some, to which the hon member took offence. Having examined the appendage (adoringly:angelic:) she wondered if I wanted to take a pic to show the nurse. I opined that lovely gals though they both were and flattering as it was I wasn't interested in that kind of thing . We just needed to keep things professional:angelic:. We parted amicably.

    Very busy today (for me anyway). My new desk arrived which meant I had to clear out everything that was in the position it was to occupy. I was hoping that my cleaner-lady would come today so that she could clean the floor in that area for me. She didn't come, so I had to do it before the desk went into place. That reminded me why I need someone to do my floors for me. Spent a couple of short breaks in my chair to try to fend of the back pain. Didn't work. By the time I was finished I could barely move! Still kind of sore, but I am a bit more mobile now. And I am sitting at my desk with the laptop right now. The rest of the place is a mess because I couldn't get everything put away - never mind - it'll still be there tomorrow and maybe I can sort something out then.

    The result of the above was that I had only tea until about 2.30. Rushed some braised pork and tomatoes (from the freezer) and dashed out at 2.45 to pick Em up from school (the weather is appalling today and she'd have been blown over by the wind, she's only a little girl. More tea when we came back and a good long cuddle - me in my big chair, easing my back and Em sitting on the arm, in a close embrace. (I do miss my cuddles since hubby went.) Let her help herself to milk and a couple of Jammie Dodgers and let her watch her favourite TV channel - kind of violent but rather like traditional Japanese drama, all jerky and (pretend) athletic.

    Just tea since then and that will be all, I think, until sometime tomorrow

    Oh dear, but that’s really made me laugh, I’m sorry. Hope it’s not too nasty.

    Cuddles with Em sound like the perfect antidote, hope your back recovers soon.

    I just found the idea of the Dr suggesting a richard pic hilarious and did offer a comment or 2 - as if I would. Receptionist said could she have a brief description of the reason for appointment - I was very tempted. Not too nasty but no horse riding today:angelic:

    Thank you I appreciate your input sorry I get upset at times it's hard trying to deal with my health issues. And can get defensive as I've been told by someone in a FB ..group someone told me to stop taking my current diabetic medications and use metformin and just put up with the diarrhea like they have no idea what UC is.... Or people saying "can you eat that".

    Sorry @ianpspurs, made me laugh too. I reckon you're one of the few who could dig humour out of chemo!

    Bed 5.7 FBG 6.1. All packed apart from a few things like meds, chargers and cables. Busy old day and it was parents night too. No 2 has now amassed 25 Certificates for good behaviour. He informed the Head and Deputy Head today his target is 100 because he wants to be the boy that gets most Certificates in a year.
    B. Later on after I finished the ironing - TAG with ADOC then 3 pork, tomato and mozzarella sausages, 3 rashers streaky bacon, 4 santini tomatoes and a fried egg.
    L. Nothing
    D. Boys didn't get home until 7.45pm due to parents night so I was past it. Settled for an avocado and prawns followed by berries and cream.

    Off to do a few more bits and bobs then off to bed. Was murder trying to get a taxi for tomorrow morning as they are all booked for school runs?? Wonder how much that costs us and what children are ferried to school in taxis?

    There are about twenty taxies taken out of circulation for nearly two hours for the school run morning and arvo here in Bundaberg, they pick up the special needs kids that cannot get on the school buses.

    The state government pick up the tab here I believe...

    There's a few other pancake recipes on that site but the souffle one is my favourite.

    Bed 6.6 FBG 6.1. And we're off. Just passing the time on one of LNERs new Azuma trains. The first to arrive apart from us are our Epsom friends and will be heading out with them later. Just enjoyed a really nice breakfast on the train.
    B. TAG with ADOC and another 2 TAGS no ADOC. 1 sausage, fried egg, portobello mushroom, 2 rashers back bacon and a spoonful of beans (so I ate them). Hubby got the hash brown with his bacon roll.
    L. I'll edit later but I suspect it may involve liquid!

    Thanks but what other reaction could one possibly have? If I am totally honest I would also *msl at a grown man/woman analysing food for carbohydrate and expecting, as if by magic, eating that way would manage diabetes - if I wasn't part of this forum. Doesn't pay to take these things too seriously IMHO. Enjoy your break.

    Really pleased Mr Slim is back in the whatsit of his family. I suspect working out how to catch him in the act of building work is your best plan.
