    Brussels sprouts are ridiculously cheap at the moment, and the string beans in the store didn't look very appetising so I used sprouts instead for one of my favourite dishes :)
    Oven baked marinated pork belly pieces and onions, Brussels sprouts, and a spicy peanut sauce. Very good, and enough left for another 2 days :hungry:.

    Plastic plates are great when it's cold in the kitchen, prevents the food from cooling right away. And as an extra bonus they carry wonderful memories on camping trips as a child :happy:.

    @DJC3 not me on the stuffed peppers, but I would try it if I liked cooked pepper any way but marinated/grilled lol.
    @Goonergal ICE water first thing in the morning?!? Brrrrrr! And how on earth can chocolate in the desk drawer go forgotten?!!
    @ianpspurs don't let them get you down-- you, Julie, and grands deserve that Advent calendar!
    Bfast avocado, pecans, boiled egg, 1.75 sq Lindt 90%, flax crisps/dilute soymilk
    Lunch another boiled egg and an open peanut butter jar...
    Supper cherry tomatoes, cucumber, can of tuna (cats enjoyed the oil in their own supper), spinach/hm dressing, Castelvetrano olives, flax crisps/dilute soy and totally unnecessary pecans.
    Goodnight and good morning as appropriate!

    @MrsA2 IDK Lush. I assume it means nice or similar? Neither Julie nor I have ever had a chocolate advent calendar. Far cheaper than a decent bottle of port, brandy or whisky so worth a punt. Yes, @zauberflote Grandchildren/sons/Dils/90.9 yo MIL might eat some if we don't but enough other flavours to hide it I hope. I eat their almond chocolate and find it ok - no erith though. B=Tea; 11.00 am; AM Latte or cwc; L: Chicken mayo sandwich avec beacoup de feuilles de salade M bread toast.; EM = 2 slices skinny bread toast, smashed avocado topped with poached eggs. Sunny, mild and dry so a downhill following breeze day :):)

    Busy day today so kept picking at bits in-between. Think there was some ff greek, some cheese, a piece of ham, some nuts

    For dinner made the leftover duck into a stir fry with oyster sauce, veg and noodles for the boys. I had some of last nights leftover roasted butternut squash on top of Monday's leftover celeriac mash topped off with some Stilton and reheated in the microwave , it was (yes @ianpspurs ) lush...in other words very nice indeed.

    And didn't mean to be critical about the calendar, it sounds very nice indeed. Hope it lives up to expectations. If it does I will ask for one next year. This year I've ordered a Boots no7 cosmetics calender at £45 . Had one a couple of years ago and it was very nice indeed, and didn't hurt my bg at all.;) This years one is currently missing somewhere along the delivery chain:sorry:

    Evening all.

    Plenty of stress induced comfort eating today.

    Started with some almond butter early on, then while the lunchtime poussin cooked in the airfryer, headed out for some fresh air and some Lindt 90% made an appearance. Poussin was delicious coated in chilli oil and salt. Lindt went down well with some extra thick double cream. Shame work is so busy as it was sunny and warm - ideal for walking.

    Dinner was pork belly slices (also picked up on the lunch time foray) cut into piece and air fried. And more Lindt.

    @Annb , I love the look of your whole roast celeriac!
    I might give it a try next time I fancy celeriac, and your oxtail looks delicious as well :hungry:

    Evening all, hugs for the stress @Goonergal I polished off 1/2 jar almond butter last night, no stress involved just mindless snacking. Air fried poussin sounds wonderful.

    Today I decided on 2 diet doctor keto meals as I don’t think I’m getting the macros right when I wing it.
    Lunch: https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/quick-and-easy-keto-tuna-zoodle-salad, the raw spiralized courgettes were great, and a nice change from salad leaves.
    Dinner: https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/kristies-chicken-philly-cheesesteak-casserole , does anyone know what I can use in future instead of Provolone cheese? I only had cheddar and it worked well but I wonder what it was meant to be like.

    @MrsA2 now I know what lush means - I'm not sure food is ever lush. IMHO it is either functional or sub-optimal but YMMV. I didn’t really feel any criticism in that post so no problem but I’ll swerve that calendar. Stilton is functional.

    OMG you could be my husband he actually loves panfried lambs liver. I cannot in any way deal with it, have to be nowhere near it and he has to clean everything before I can enter the kitchen, which he does. Th3 deal is if he cooks it I am not involved a5 any stage, before, during and after.
    today I had my usual brekkie of slice of HiLo toast, butter, tea.
    Lunch was unexpectedly out in an outside cafe and was an open smoked salmon sandwich on a bit of rye bread with cream cheese and watercress salad and with brilliant caper berries which were the star of the show.

    This looks very similar to the tuna melt recipe from @Rachox which I usually make with bacon, ham or chorizo 20200725_193216.jpeg

    I've eaten this one hot from the oven, hopefully they will be just as good when eaten cold :)
    There are 4 left to take with me to share tomorrow, and tonights dinner will be bell pepper filled with the same batter, which I expect to be very nice. The other bell pepper I've filled with a mixture of onion, chorizo and cheese.

    Thanks for the idea, @zauberflote !
