    @ziggy_w so glad to read you are feeling better, That ice cream maker is a really impressive looking bit of kit, I’m looking forward to seeing the results.
    I’m still quite behind on posts so today’s food before I forget:
    Black coffee ( lots) until around 2pm then a ham, cheese and salad sandwich made with the Seriously Low Carb bread. So good to have a sandwich again!
    Dinner: rest of family wanted fish and chips from local chippy. I had 2 steamed fish with salad and tartare sauce ( trick I learned from Slimming World years ago - most chippies will happily do you a steamed rather than battered fish if you ask). DGF brownie and cream to follow.

    Or coffee? This summer tried but failed to get Tia Maria for flavouring icecream. If you add alcohol it doesn't set so hard.
    Idea was
    whipped cream,
    Strong coffee,
    Tia Maria
    Sweetener if needed.

    @shelley262 tearing hair out in sympathy with you!!
    @ziggy_w yes, the eggs rose it, but like a quiche it collapsed quickly. Since I only mean to bake it for grandbaby-minding days, I don't worry too much about the weird flavor!
    @ianpspurs thanks for the DIL/Julie update. I suppose appendix is better than some things but ugh anyway.
    @Annb that would be awful if your covid cost you your enjoyment of food. I'm sorry! My grandbaby is the product of much IVF due to a rare and raging type of endometriosis so my heart goes out to yours even more.
    @Bex72 somewhere up the thread a ways is a conversation about Lizza pasta and macaroni cheese. I am glad you're eating, even if it all tastes nasty. I hope all of you improve rapidly!
    Goodnight all, good morning soon enough!

    Sorry you’re having such a horrid time. Some comfort food ideas which are also quick and easy to prepare!

    - Cream cheese mixed with double cream - whip it if you have the inclination, for a mousse like effect. Add 90% chocolate if that floats your boat. Actually whipped cream, with or without cream cheese mixed with all manner of things is quick and tasty . Try nut butters too.
    - Small pieces of cheese - even nicer melted in a ramekin
    - Boiled eggs mashed with butter or scrambled eggs

    Thanks Goonergal,
    I had some mascarpone cheese in the fridge so had a spoonful with grated dark chocolate and some berries. I'm drinking hot water with a drop of lemon juice. I'll have to add whipping cream to the shopping list (and then keep it away from my daughter). Take care x

    Personally, I whip double cream, or even make clotted cream from extra thick clotted cream (the latter in the electric cauldron - aka pressure cooker).

    BG down to 9.5 this morning and now down to 7.4. Must be getting on the right track.

    However, feeling very odd today - not hypo kind of odd, just grotty kind of odd. Went to the local shop this morning. Everyone was complaining about the cold but I was far too hot and sore lungs again. Came home and checked - temperature was OK (36.5) but pulse was 105 and sats 89. Sweaty but cold to the touch. Seems to have settled down now but still a bit dizzy and headachy - not my usual problem. Hope I haven't found something else to go down with.

    The rest of my fruit bushes arrived in the post. I was looking at some others as well, but must get the ones I have, planted up first.

    Breakfast was 2 RyVita with the ham that I bought yesterday.

    Dinner will be lamb neck, stewed with some onion.

    Evening all. 3rd 3.30 start in a row so a low key day again. TWAM- lots - and AM Latte - 800 mls- until lunchtime. Cheese and cucumber skinny bread sandwich, tea. Cooked salmon (220 gms?)+2 mushrooms+2 large tomatoes, added a variety of leaves and mayo to the plate. Feel a little despondent about that as though I have been weak just because I'm tired. T2 is always prowling about waiting for me to slip up as it were. I’m just not blessed with ecumenical tastes food wise. I am pleased for you all as I read your menus but curious as I am, I know it is/was silly for me to try them. @Annb, yes let's hope you haven't found another problem.

    Evening all.

    TMAD again.

    Spotted early on that the day might run away so ate breakfast of 2 small pork belly strips cut into pieces, coated in salt and chilli oil and air fried. Good decision - meetings all the way from 9am to end of day.
    Dinner was 2 Barnsley lamb chops and 1 chicken thigh. Salted and air fried.

    @Bex72 so sorry to hear you’ve been poorly - my comfort food is low carb sweet stuff such as 100% chocolate, DGF brownies or bits of cheese, another option is a hot drink with cream - hot chocolate? Take care and hope you start picking up soon.
    More normal day today - a paid work day, working from home, that started with an early morning swim - we had to clear an icy windscreen early this am but well worth it for the stress relieving swim.
    Decided on a three small meal day to break up the work day
    Breakfast one slice of bacon and egg with half a toasted chaffle.
    Lunch a few bits of cheese with walnuts followed by one 100% montezumas peanut butter egg
    Mid pm DGF mint brownie
    Dinner salmon in lemon butter, asparagus and celeriac chips followed by a DGF lemon and blueberry cake with a few garden berries and cream.
    Another work day planned for tomorrow.

    @Annb how weird! I get "dizzy"-- vestibular symptoms-- with almost any change in weather, but that doesn't explain the 89 and sore lungs. I hope it goes away NOW!
    @ianpspurs you are a better soldier than I; three impossibles lack-of-sleeps in a row and you're not eatjng everything in the kitchen, which is my reaction after only one bad night! Ha -- then I read your comment about "weak just because tired". Tomorrow is another day. I really hope you get better sleep!
    Bfast that zweiback with all of my usual breakfast in it/dilute soymilk. It's not particularly flavorful, and I miss the separate flavors of my foods BUT I didn't spill a single thing on me and ate most of it on the drive to grandson's. Win!
    Lunch two kinds of swiss-ish cheese, spoon of peanut butter
    No idea what supper will be but definitely spinach/hm dressing and flax crisps/dilute soymilk, cherry tomatoes&olives.
    Today another in a lovely string of beautiful days but will have remnants of (now) Tropical Storm Delta over the weekend. Then more mild sunshine. I love this about Virginia-- October can be the most beautiful month of the year.

    Well done for not spilling a single drop and the joy of October in Va?. The weak because tired comment was because of a 2nd tomato not any weakness per se. Not sure what one could possibly snack on or comfort eat that is LC so nothing hard there. You get a winner for living in a blue state.

    Evening all.
    Omad and a bit today
    Breakfast/ brunch in a bit of a rush so 2 slices of smoked cheese straight out of the packet.
    Lunch about 2pm was a Cobb salad, must be at least a couple of days since I’ve had this! Very filling so wasn’t hungry by dinner time and decided to skip it.
    ( I am hungry now btw but it’s too late to eat)

    @ianpspurs ha! I just eat more LC food until suddenly L stands for Lots....
    @MrsA2 sorry for the migraine threat. Mine shows up as vestibular weirdness, so I stagger around corners every time a front comes through!
    @Rachox I am sprawled on the floor after a barre class here and your mention of pecans may be what gets me up-- that's what I can start supper with yay!!

    Hello all,

    Was out yesterday and didn'tmget to post.

    @Bex72 -- Hugs for feeling badly due to Covid. Keeping my fingers crossed that you'll be feeling better soon. Thinking of you.
    @DJC3 -- Thanks for your kind wishes. Hugs for going to bed hungry.


    Yesterday ...

    Breakfast: double decaffeinated espresso with cream and erythritol. About 10g of 88% chocolate.

    Lunch: Half a DD keto roll with butter and turkey salami.

    Evening all.

    TMAD again. Hungry this morning so ate a tin of sardines and some tuna before heading out for the day.
    Courtesy of the Instant Pot returned home to delicious beef short ribs. Still peckish afterwards so topped up with some cream cheese mixed with double cream.
