    Thanks all for your congratulatory messages. I haven’t caught up with the last few days on here yet so I’ve probably missed a lot of good stuff.
    I did mention your chocolate spread and pickled onion sandwiches to 7yo Evie @Goonergal she pondered it for a few seconds then declared that pickled egg would probably go better with it!
    Today’s food black coffee lots of in very hot and long journey back to Cornwall.
    Lunch bought from M&S at service stn en route. Prawn and Marie rose mayo and prosciutto wrapped cheese rollitos. 1 Montezuma’s chocolate peanut butter mini egg.
    Dinner prepared by daughters for our arrival home was lamb meatballs with a tomato based sauce and crumbled feta cheese. Roast broccoli. Bit too much of a bg rise afterwards ( prob too much onion, tomato and carrot in the recipe) but never mind for a one off. It was a nice thought
    @shelley262 glad you got back to the swimming pool home the journey up to Yorks goes well.

    Naked Scotch Eggs.

    I found a couple of recipes online that used Parmesan in place of breadcrumbs. But I thought I'd prefer them without. Tastier than the shop bought ones, and not significantly more expensive. I made them yesterday, but will be having the last two for lunch today.

    I might make some more, with minced beef rather than pork. See what they're like.

    Personally, I don't cook in anything plastic, but would maybe consider using a pyrex/glass variation of the box.

    We have several items from this range at IKEA. The tops and bottoms all interchange (subject to dimensions, obviously), and lids can be bought independently to the bottoms. You can also buy replacement gaskets. This is very useful when someone puts a clip top lid in the oven believing it will not warp. They warp,

    Pyrex do similar containers, but IKEA is a good deal cheaper and far more mix and match.

    IKEA can be a nightmare, but for some things, they're just ace.

    Some time back, there was a recipe for low carb tuna melts on this forum, but I don't think I copied it and now I could do with it. The recipes I can find on the internet are all very carb heavy. Does anyone have the recipe?

    FBG 10.7 rising to 13.4 after a couple of hours so fairly early on - insulin and yoghurt with mixed berries. We'll see what that does.

    BG yesterday didn't get below 10 at any stage. Probably won't today either. On the advice of the diabetic nurse, I upped the basal insulin to 48 from 44 last night. She said she'd call again tomorrow to find out how I get on. So far, not particularly good.

    I thought tuna would be a good idea for a meal later in the day, but not sure how to make it.

    I use 1 tin drained tuna (about 110g) blitzed in hand blender with 1 egg and a bit of baking powder (optional). Then cook in shallow container or on plate in microwave 3-4 minutes or oven 15-20 minutes. Then top with cheese and grill (or eat plain)

    Thanks so much for that. I'll be making that later today.

    Just checked BG again, after my yoghurt and berries - up to 16.1! I have some mushroom soup on the go, so I'll finish it off and keep it until tomorrow. Tuna melts today.

    @DJC3 - chocolate spread and pickled eggs...:hungover: gross! The only time I could ever eat pickled eggs was when I was pregnant

    We had the most amazing thunderstorm and torrential rain here last night after it had got up to 34c in the garden yesterday afternoon. Much cooler (and nicer) today.

    Breakfast: Longley cottage cheese with a tablespoon of carb free syrup(cherry) and flaked almonds
    Lunch: either nothing or a crispbread with cream cheese
    Dinner: Mr C is cooking - lentil Dahl, Bombay celeriac, French bean masala, chard and paneer and, hopefully, an aubergine curry - with cauliflower rice

    Thanks for that, MrsA2. I'll get around to watching the podcast later, I hope. Is there anything in particular you feel I might find useful, or just generally?

    Thursday bed 8.6 FBG 7.3. BGs still a bit up and down (so I get where you're coming from @Annb & @Chook). @shelley262- wonderful you can get back in the pool. No prospect of that up here. I suspect that's part of my problem since the gym, swimming and Aqua were my means of exercise as they are supervised and safe for me. What I don't get is why Bingo Halls are getting to open but not gyms. Gyms have a well established hygiene regime already. @DJC3 - so glad to hear the scan went well. My brother's was delayed another 6 months so it will be a year before they catch up (maybe). @PenguinMum glad to hear Mr PM survived the hospital trip.
    Hubby's recovery continues. He is actually listening a bit now I have been proved right. I'm still remaining in another bedroom until he's been clear 48 hrs.
    B. Slice toasted Hilo with ham and coleslaw. TAG.
    L. Nothing. Took son to shops in the midst of torrential rain.
    D. Made an adapted Nigella dish. Hers was spaghetti, I substituted Lidl's high protein noodles. The "sauce" was made with tuna, spring onion, garlic, lemon juice and zest, olive oil and rocket. It was fine, not exceptional, but made a nice change. Scoop of Halo Top strawberry cheesecake and 4 strawberries.

    There's a mix I use that's LC using Almond flour, golden milled flax, parmesan and sesame seeds that produces a crispy coating. I use it for loads of things and vary it slightly with flavourings and spices depending on what I'm cooking.

    Might have been the Diet Doctor one. I know a few of us have made this and it is delicious. You have to make oopsie bread too but it is pretty straightforward.

    Bed 7.2 FBG 6.3. Glorious day Friday followed by torrential rain at night. I'm still doing everything since, although Hubby is starting to eat again he's surprised how weak he is! Don't know why. He is consuming the Lucozade orange and water now so hydration is going better. I started on another kitchen gut. Things were starting to get out of place so I decided to give it a good clean and a sort as you go before it gets bad.
    B. Slice toasted Hilo with ox tongue and coleslaw. TAG.
    L. Nothing.
    D. The thin beef wrapped around sliced peppers and red onion in the chilli/tomato sauce. Had it with veggie chips. 2 squares Godiva and a Nairn's choc chip oatcake.

    @SlimLizzy - so glad to see Mr Slim is back with you again.

    Yes I agree it sounds gross. Definitely more Letitia Cropley. I like pickled eggs though, just not with chocolate spread!
    Your dinner sounds wonderful. Bombay celeriac is inspired.

    Evening all.

    Yesterday’s lunch did prove to be the last food of the day. Resulted in an impromptu 26 hour fast which was broken with this beauty in my favourite steak house (owned by an ex-colleague). Struggled to finish it but no way was any of it getting left behind!
