    Evening!

    Feeling tired as I roll slowly towards the end of the week and half term... whoop!

    Breakfast - coffee and 2 veggie sausages

    Lunch - beef stew and dumplings from freezer
    Naughty... half a tiny slice of chocolate brownie. Worth it!

    Dinner - mushroom and cheese omelette

    Apple and peanut butter

    Yummy day!

    When these storms come in I always think of the folk in Cornwall, (which as you know I love) , but especially the fishermen. Such a hard job and it does explain how fresh fish is dearer than meat. Hope you, your family and Dennis atay safe and well this weekend.

    This morning black coffee x 2 then peppermint tea as too much black coffee gives me a stomach ache - V irritating.
    Lunch out at a garden centre near Padstow, lovely looking food so no idea why I had a cheese and mushroom omelette and salad. It was very nice but I meant to get the fish chowder.
    D: https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/keto-thai-fish-curry-coconut this was lovely, made it with haddock, which luckily was available.

    @maglil55 Sorry I didn’t thank you for posting the link to DD week 5, it didn’t let me see, but I did find it eventually by going back to the deep dive email. Like you I’ve changed a lot of it and it’ll be very different at the weekend when I have grandchildren here too. I’m still enjoying the food enormously ( apart from the bacon cheeseburger casserole)

    Evening all. Playing catch up - long work day in Brum yesterday and didn’t get to post.

    @PenguinMum hope you’re soon fully recovered.

    Yesterday lunch was a bunless bacon cheeseburger with mayonnaise and grilled onions at Five Guys around the corner from my favourite hotel in Brum - some unexpected free time in the day.
    Dinner was on the train - M&S Serrano ham and manchego cheese rollitos plus a couple of bits of cheddar.

    Today was my usual lunch of bacon eggs and cheese at the cafe near work.
    Dinner was chicken wings - 50/50 split of garlic Parmesan and lemon pepper flavours.

    @shelley262 hope you stay safe. Bewdley is so prone to flooding. The barriers can only do so much.
    @PenguinMum thanks for you good wishes.as you can tell he is feeling better this afternoon and evening. I think it was partly overdoing it.
    @ianpspurs thank you. I think. Not sure why I deserve your praise though.
    Did I mention storm Dennis has taken the roof of a lean-to shed?

    Trooper for all the building work and hardcore gardening with a bad shoulder. Absolute result with Mr Slim being a chef and master builder.

    I don't eat out or frequent pubs but this is less than 10 mins away. Is a gin menu common nowadays? https://www.guinnessarms.com/ Food not exactly LC but it does look enticing. We are baby sitting tomorrow whilst N0 3 son and DIL have valentine meal there. The steak does sound good as does venison Carpaccio.

    Breakfast: my usual low carb coconut ‘porridge’ with strawberries and cream washed down with a black coffee.
    Lunch at my friend’s (newly diagnosed type 2): Peking style spare ribs with creamy garlic mushrooms followed by LC chocolate brownies with cream and LC chocolate granola (dessert was my contribution to the meal :))
    Mid afternoon: black coffee.
    Dinner: mushroom and strong cheddar omelette with leafy salad followed by SF jelly, cream and macadamia and coconut keto granola

    I'm sure Ned (as those of us ITK call Lord I) has the staff to sort salad and some veg to go with the steak. Chips for 1 night would probably do.

    Those brownies look amazing, great idea for a Valentines treat.
    I will try to keep Dennis contained, I think he’s exhausted himself here. I hope those flood barriers hold, it doesn’t seem a minute since you got the worst of the floods before.

    Today :

    It was a starvation day .

    Breakfast : less than half a small omelet ( was too busy to finish it).

    Lunch: half a cucumber , and 3-4 spoons of ground beef I managed to find in pasta ( tried not to eat the pasta itself except a few tiny random bits) . That was all that was available at work .

    Snack : A tiny square of chocolate .

    Dinner : After starvation today , I was very hungry . So guess what ? After 20 yrs , I ordered MC Donald since it was the fastest !!! Last time I had MCD , I was a student , 20 yrs ago.

    I removed the upper bun and had a triple cheeses burger ( without the upper bun ) and salad with bacon .

    I was so hungry that it tasted better than a Michelin restaurant! So pathetic of me I know !


    Picture attached IMG_4951.jpg


    Edit : No spikes ! Bg went up to 116 = 6.5. Dexcom shows no spikes at all . This means I can have half a normal bun
