    @DJC3 - I wasn't sure it would let you see the Week 5 menu even although it says you can share with other members. I know you're on the same membership as I am but I suspect we'd have to share via email as that's how they identify us. I'm really enjoying the bulk of the recipes too. I was scheduled to have the fish curry today but I've decided to postpone it. @SlimLizzy - great looking food. Brought back memories of my lamp cooking days when I worked in restaurants. Peach or pineapple flambe or crepe suzette. Kitchen looks great. @PenguinMum - hope you have fully recovered and @Annb - glad you got the power back on.
    Yesterday - bed 6.6 FBG 5.0. Was supposed to be grandson free but DIL needed to go to the physio so I had the boys for a few hours.
    B. Just TAG.
    L. Produce lentil soup for lunch for the boys so I had the 1/2 cup that was left over.
    D. Made this after I got the boys back home. The DD Shepherds Pie with cauli mash on top. Another very tasty dish and enough left over for lunch tomorrow. Interesting with the chopped leek through the mash. Had a Isey Skyr later.

    Well here I am preparing for another weekend of possible power cuts so when I did my food shopping this morning I planned to cook things later which could be heated up/cooked on the picnic stove. So chicken stir fry tomo and chilli made today to heat up on Sunday. Tonight is monkfish and scallops off this mornings boats.
    At least living on top of a hill I dont have to worry about flooding. I fear for the folk up rhe country who still havent got over the last floods.

    Monkfish and scallops are my idea of heaven on a plate! I do hope the power cuts don’t materialise but well done for being super prepared. What will you do about heating?

    Hope your pre power cut preparations aren't needed, but you look to be pretty well prepared. Do you have electric heating or something a bit more reliable? We have oil, but of course, the pump is electric, so not so reliable, but I got rid of my kitchen stove - getting too old to keep cleaning it out and fetching fuel. Still do have a log burner in the sitting room and we have cleared the space in front of it now, but didn't get around to getting it lit in the last power cut.

    So far today I've had some berries with yoghurt and a few cups of tea. I will eventually have some fish pie (smoked haddock, salmon and a bit of some kind of white fish that I can't identify from the freezer) with a celeriac and cheese mash topping. That will have to be about 5 pm - before I have to go out for the kids' club.

    @Annb and @DJC3 we have oil fired central heating but of course the pump wont work in a power cut. Luckily have an open fireplace in the front room and a good supply of logs, briquettes and SF coal. Other than that its rugs and cats (for me, Mr PM is allergic but still loves them).
    Today had COYO strawberry flavoured coconut milk yogurt (5.5g /100g carbs pot 125g was 6.6g) with a few berries. It was really nice and made a change without breaking the carb bank even if making a dent in the actual bank!

    @Annb your fish pie sounds delish specially with celeriac topping. Takecare when you go out later especially if the wind gets up.

    I'm still here and still enjoying your posts. :) My left hand is almost back to what it was before, sadly I'm VERY right handed and that hand is lagging behind in the getting better race. I'm hoping it will get better on its own and i won't need the doctor's appointment booked for the week after next. I really hate doctors.

    We are on an amber warning for heavy rain here at the weekend courtesy of storm Dennis - people in the next village (Fishlake) are bracing themselves for a re-run of the recent floods, although we've had no automated notification that might happen (last time every single land line and mobile phone in this village and a couple of others were sent a high priority automated message which overrides any do not disturb / call barring settings on your phone). Last time the water got as close as seeping under the front door of a house two doors down from me (which was nerve wracking). :nailbiting:

    Food is going fine.... breakfasts have all been chia puddings or soya yoghurt with nuts. Mainly green gloop for lunches and then very simple dinners - the downside to having heavy cooking pans is that i can't pick them up at the moment so anything requiring cooking has mostly been done by Mr C, plated up then microwave re-heated when needed.

    Glad to hear there is improvement even if its not the hand you need. It would be good if the right followed suit. You and Mr Chook seem to have worked out a cunning plan for dinners. I have two cast iron pans which I rarely use so I understand. One is a large casserole which is useful to feed a crowd but that seldom happens any more so I may decide to part ways with them if we move. I will be crossing everything that you and your neighbours dont have flooding. I get power cuts but that is nothing compared to flooding. Best wishes.

    Lovely to see you posting @Chook . Let’s hope your right hand soon catches up with the left.

    Very glad to have reached the weekend. Conducted 4 performance reviews today, total of 6 hours! One of them had to be in the cafe near work so that lunch could be eaten. Bacon, eggs and grated cheese.

    Dinner was almost carnivore pizza (a few onions alongside the animal products). Delicious. @Antje77 note the plate!

    Dennis still seems to be heading our way despite @DJC3 trying to keep him in in Cornwall! Think here real flooding problem will be in a day or so as the River Severn tends to be slow building re it’s river levels (although already very high) and after a couple of days takes the real hit. We are very lucky in Bewdley though to have proper flood barriers and lucky re our own house being higher up the river valley!
    Breakfast two boiled egg and half a toasted chaffle
    Lunch poached salmon mousse with salad and lc seeded crackers
    Dinner steak, halloumi chips and mushroom sauce with glass of Barolo red wine followed by DD lc raspberry cheesecake swirl brownie with extra thick double cream.
    Stay safe all out there all with storm Dennis. Hope it dies down @SlimLizzy before you come back to the UK for your trip
    @Chook thinking of you hope your dominant hand improves soon. Also hope you avoid the flooding think your area it’s flash flooding so difficult to predict and plan for - here on Severn although flooding never good we do tend to get more warning and detail .

    Mid afternoon: black coffee.
    Dinner: Cold bbq chicken drumsticks, cauliflower and broccoli salad, coleslaw and a packet of Serious Pig cheese snacks followed by LC chocolate brownie with cream and low carb chocolate granola.

    Evening all and sorry in advance for not managing to contain Dennis. I do hope we all survive without too much disruption, especially those in flood prone areas. @Chook good to see you back again, hope your hand gets better soon. It must have been really scary seeing that flood water lapping at the door.
    @shelley262 I hope the flood barriers hold. I’m envious of your glass of Barolo - haven’t had that for ages, such a gorgeous deep full wine.
    @Goonergal sounds like a full on week for you, good idea to do one of your reviews in the cafe though.

    Today started with a black coffee, but started getting ‘coffee tum’ before the second so put a dash of cream in it which helped. I should probably try to cut down on coffee, sigh.
    Lunch - hotchpotch of things from the fridge 50g smoked salmon, 1/2 avocado, h/b egg, celery sticks with M&S whipped creamy cheese.
    D: the DD keto shepherds pie that @maglil55 had yesterday daughter declared it better than the traditional style. Agree that the leeks stirred through the mash was a good twist. About 15g Montezumas Absolute black and a tot of HC cocoa gin.

    @maglil55 We have got a spirit lamp. Somewhere. .. plan was to use it. Best laid and all that.
    Just found this article
    https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/potatoes-and-diabetes
    Not sure where to post link. Maybe a mod could move it?
    Today's food. Breakfast nut granola and CWC x2 after big meal last night not really hungry.
    Lunch. Fish soup, chunk of emmental and some raspberries with yoghurt and cream.
    Dinner, pork chop, cauliflower, brocolli, and mushrooms. With mustard sauce. Sauce was simply Crême frâiche with wholegrain mustard mixed in and warmed.
    One glass wine. Lemon teas through the day. Including bedtime.
    Have to phone the doctor next week to beg for HbA1c test. Appalled.

    Edited to add.
    Did have three of MrSlims chocolates before I managed to stop.
