    Lovely to hear your voice (you sound exactly like you do in my mind when I read your posts). Shame about the (lack of) freebies.

    Morning all!

    Breakfast: Longley Farm cottage cheese with flaked almonds and carb free syrup
    Lunch: Ryvita with Longley Farm cream cheese topped with a few blackberries
    Dinner: a sort of cauliflower cous cous salad with grilled artichokes (thanks for the inspiration @ianpspurs ) black olives, tiny chargrilled courgettes, small avocado, spring onion, feta and tomato
    Dessert will be raspberries (of course)

    @Rachox HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
    @shelley262 SAME TO YOU!!
    @Annb , @PenguinMum and @Chook more hugs coming your ways.
    @maglil hurray 4.2!!! What is haslet please? Some offal prepared as only you know how?
    @ianpspurs I have thought od you frequently, over my AWOL time, because of your move. So glad to hear your voice! What do you mean Little America? Is £ no longer hard currency?? And char grilled artichokes! How did you make them? We just got a new propane grill ("barbecue") that won't blow up the first time we use it. PS it wasn't me with the air fryer link. There is a rotisserie accessory we could buy for this new grill but I doubt that would happen soon. DS loves his air fryer... maybe he will give me one for Christmas!
    @Goonergal fun to hear your voice, and I learned how to pronounce "paracetamol"!!!

    Yesterday-- almost made a short afternoon fast but ate pecans. In other news, my feral food was carb-free so I can mention the butter before bedtime. Otherwise similar to today, which is so far only:
    Bfast avocado, pecans in avo oil, boiled egg, 1.5 Lindt 90%, flax crisps/dilute soy. This meal takes forever to eat. I did three days' worth of dishes while nibbling the chocolate.... the dishwasher in this house didn't last two weeks after we moved in, and I want a cheap stop-gap one while we decide if we are going to do some work in the kitchen, but haven't hit "submit order" yet.

    It's not yet 1:00 and the thunder has already started! @maglil my grandfather used to take my mom out on the porch to enjoy thunderstorms, because her mother was the one in the closet. So I'm a great fan, the louder the better!

    For those playmates who have the Power, Lidl or any of the other labels of the same configuration, apparently this roasting tin is a perfect fit for the chamber.

    I already use a similar dish, both to roast in, but to act as a deeper drip tray for foods rendering alot of fat, during their cooking process. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B071FT3...7zII07_GYN-1znT7FhxoQUFrYIPR9lhsveMwo6tv_1QT0

    I saw a post, with the link in a food gadgets Faceache group.

    In other news, there is a virtually new (still has the control panel plastic cover in it) for £35 on Facebook marketplace. I'm a little obsessed by it, since someone mentioned they'd snapped up the most incredible bargain.

    Just thought I'd mention it, as, in my view, the drip tray is one of that particular AF's weak points.

    Reckon it might be slightly too high for the Lidl one. Will measure again before ordering. Other dimensions work with a bit to spare.

    Too hot for Lunch again: just had a handful of pork scratchings.

    Breakfast - 3 eggs mashed with butter in a cup

    Lunch - 3 slices of ham, a babybel, fridge raiders chicken and 2 Ryvita crackers with cheese spread. Crackers came in at 8g so was happy to have some crunch for that.

    Dinner - fajita beef with peppers, avocado, dollop of sour cream and cheese.

    Comes in dead on 20g but might have a wee square of chocolate and a cup of tea later.

    Brunch: yoghurt,2 strawberries and seeds, 2 slices corned beef and a small avocado

    Then off to dentists. The only thing that hurt was the bill

    D: chicken thighs coated in crunched up scratchings with added seeds and spices done in the airfryer. Added some sweet potato chips for the boys, one of whom made a tasty side of sweetcorn and feta. I only had one tablespoonful but 2 hours later 9.4. Dont know pre dinner level as got too involved trying to work out temperatures and timings for the new airfryer gadget. Very cross I went that high. I only have to think about food and my bg seems to go up these days

    Lovely relaxing day today spent sunbathing in the garden while putting loads of washing out - quite a lazy day actually but good.

    Brunch - 2 boiled eggs mashed up in a cup with butter - also had a handful of almond nuts while I was waiting on the eggs cooking - I went to bed hungry last night and woke up hungry this morning - after that also had 2 slices of pork and egg roll and a mug of earl grey with double cream.

    Dinner - gammon steak with fried egg and melted cheese on top with broccoli, kale and a few carrots. SF jelly and double cream.

    Went a long walk tonight as it was still really nice but had cooled down.

    I am not long back from Morrisons where I got a jar of pickled eggs!!! ....... they are next to the pickled onions (which I was looking for) for anyone who is interested - it is the first time I have noticed them - it must be because we were speaking about them

    Got that ordered now. I cover the drip tray with foil but that will be very handy.

    Totally different here today - much, much cooler and breezy. BGs are a bit lower than they have been recently, too.

    Today's food is....

    Breakfast: omelette with carb free syrup (lemon and raspberry)
    Lunch: Longley Farm cream cheese on Ryvita with a few raspberries on top
    Dinner: remainder of yesterday's cauliflower cous cous salad (really nice - will definitely make again)

    Yesterday Wednesday bed 5.4 FBG an amazing 4.3!! Boys safely back to school. The eldest was still nervous but fine once he spotted all his friends. Hubby came with me for pick up as they come out different exits and this year they are at opposite ends of the school. Just need to get the eldest educated on getting around to the opposite side within the allowed "bubble" parameters. Lots of happy, smiling parents too with the schools back. It was a scorcher yesterday so they were telling me they had lunch outside with their class "bubble". Got to say our council & school has things really well organised and the kids already know all the new rules for their safety. @Rachrox - belated Happy Birthday x
    @zauberflote - Haslet is a cold deli meat. It's a kind of pork meat loaf with herbs. It sometimes has breadcrumbs in it but the one I buy doesn't affect my BGs. Funny you should mention my other liking! When I was in Morrisons yesterday, they had mistakenly had Yorkshire tripe delivered again. I bought all of it! All 10 packs. Once again it will become lots of portions if Trippa alla Romana.
    B. TAG and a slice of LC toast with pate.
    L. Nothing
    D. So hot we just has a repeat of the cold meat and salad. Slice each of ox tongue, roast pork, haslet with lettuce, tomatoes, baby beet, waldorf salad, coleslaw, veggie salad and 6 walnut halves.

    Bed 7.4 FBG 6.9. After a day of low 5's and 4's it was disappointing but it was a very, humid and uncomfortable night and I ended up having a shower at 6am to cool off. Humid weather normally pushes me up. Getting the boys into school was easier today. We were a bit concerned about how they would take to packed lunches (the smaller one us very fussy) but the eldest only had crusts remaining (normal - he doesn't do crusts) and the youngest an apple with 4 bites out of it! We are looking for bigger water bottles for them. School water fountains are turned off so they cannot refill their bottles at school.
    B. TAG and a slice of LC toast with pate.
    L. Nothing - working my way through mass cooking of the tripe in the IP to turn it into trippa alla romana @zauberflote. Got the soffritto made and into the IP with pancetta and chilli. Just going to finish the tripe prep and the rest of the ingredients are going in.
    D. Will be said Trippa alla Romana as Hubby and boys are having steak pie, mash & peas for dinner.

    Morning All!

    Another scorcher yesterday, and fridge stocks running down, so did v simple air fryer stuff.

    Steak for lunch, moo grob for supper, with some Godiva in the middle.

    This is my last working day in August! Am counting down the minutes. lol.
    Am off to visit relatives for a few days - first time since Jan. We have had big discussions on COVID risk, and decided to be sensible but not paranoid.
    Then the second week will be at home, doing Home Stuff, which will depend on the weather.
    This is the first time I have had a solid 2 weeks off work in... well it is probably 3 or 4 years. So I intend to make the most of it in a lying in, no alarm clock way.

    Hi All
    Just done a big C&C so well stocked again. Very envious of Mr PM’s choc ices. I see Oppo now do ice cream sticks but not available on my C&C, maybe just as well!
    Today had early brekkie of HiLo toast, tea.
    Lunch will be egg mayo salad with my h/g red and yellow toms.
    Supper is Thursday house special: Chunky fishfingers with broccoli.

    Agree @maglil55 it was crazy hot last night. I brought water up from the fridge which was lukewarm when I needed it. I can’t remember such a prolonged spell of very hot and humid weather. I have never, ever eaten Tripe but since I don’t like offal I dont imagine I would like it. I remember my mother bought ox heart once and I was dreading supper that evening, worried about it all day at school. It turned out my brother broke his leg at school and dinner never happened. I dont remember what or how but that the ox heart never happened.

    Yes, my drip tray always has foil on it (call me lazy, but easier to clean up). I do have a nearly fit tin, which is fine for now, but I do have this one saved in my List for when I next feel the urge.
