    I’ll be interested in your cauli tabouleh recipe when you’ve tried it. I miss that sort of salad.

    @DJC3 the MIL issue over in an hour when we hired a plumber and will bill Homeserve. @MrsA2 @zauberflote needs a Food Fairy. I stumbled into mine in a rugby or cricket club in Surrey, all a bit hazy for some reason. She took me home and apparently, I’ve been married to this same one for 36 years on Tuesday. Who - except Moonpig- knew?. B=Tea; 11.00 am; CWC; .; L: was toast and some left over cold veggies. EM Pork shoulder, roast veggies- basically my salad roasted sans avo - Romaine lettuce not leaves, ?keto gravy. (Takes soo long to eat ½ pig. What is the point of pork chops and sausages*?) @Mrs T 123 congratulations on getting a new job. @ziggy_w I always like the sound of your food but my inner voice says It will only end in tears for me. I’m hoping to rediscover enjoyment of this WOE. I did from June 2015 to June 2018. Has anyone else had a sticky patch? *stuffing for Porchetta?

    The soup base is on a hot plate, once the soup is boiling, grab a slice of lamb with chopsticks and dip it for a few seconds, then eat it. Of course you can dip veggies, tofu, mushrooms etc. this is a lotus root, a bit crunchy texture

    So, it's a bit like a Mongolian hot pot, isn't? I have a very good Taiwanese friend, who once invited us to this -- enjoyed it very much. Wasn't diabetic then, but now realize it would have been ideal for a ketogenic woe.

    The lotus root looks very, very nice, don't think I have ever seen it before. May I ask where you got it?

    Evening all. Two meals today, first at around 11:00 was cheesy scrambled eggs then a handful of walnuts.
    Dinner a little later than planned due to a phone all from OH asking me to come and get Dennis - they’d gone out for a walk and OH had slipped and face planted the pavement! A lovely kindly group of folk had gathered there when I arrived and an ambulance had been called. A lady who was just driving back from seeing to her horses covered him with a horse blanket to keep him warm. I was touched at the kindness and concern of these strangers. Paramedic arrived and checked him out then walked us back home to give him a proper once over. He’s fine but his nose and top lip are bloody and swollen. Could have been a lot worse. Daughter commented at one point ‘it’s a good thing you didn’t land on Dennis’ - which wasn’t received well lol! Anyway he’ll be off work for a day or 2 to make sure there’s no concussion ( he drives an HGV so can’t take chances) and the paramedic excused him washing up duties for a couple of days too. @zauberflote how I miss the dishwasher too!
    We finally ate Sunday lunch - roast chicken, stuffing, cauli cheese and broccoli. Now having a DGF cake and coffee.
    @ianpspurs hope all is fixed in MIL’s world. I hadn’t realised you’d actually enjoyed this woe to begin with. I haven’t been doing it 3 years so can’t compare but I have found I can’t face some of the meals I really liked at the beginning because of their richness.

    Hug for Mr DJC - I did the same this summer. MIL solved and that last sentence reassures me no end. Mine seems to be linked to getting down to 73/74 kgs. How much butter goes into keto gravy recipes? - not for me thanks. The versions with heavy cream seem truly hideous to me. Pork shoulder was indeed a heated lump of fatty meat but of a superior provenance.

    Evening all.

    Sorry to hear about the OH’s mishap, @DJC3

    Long drawn out OMAD+ today. Had a very early start (5.23am bus) followed by long, but enjoyable walks in Richmond Park, along the Thames Path and in Kew Gardens. Mix of rain, wind and glorious sunshine as I chalked up a hunger inducing 15 miles.

    Bought an individual piece of cheddar, a peperami and a Kind bar at Cannon Street station and ate on the way home. They were followed by a small portion of pork belly slices, cut into pieces, salted, coated in chilli oil and air fried. The main course was 2 small Barnsley lamb chops. Feet firmly up now.

    I have no idea how it happened, but I did something very similar about this time last year. I split my eyebrow, with spectacular bleeding. Typical me - all show!

    I think I might have tripped up on the cobbles I was walking over at what is now forever in our world known as Faceplant Corner.

    I was also helped by passers by. A very young couple who were extremely attentive. I was mainly mortified as I searched for tissues to staunch the blood and wipe it off my jacket.

    I hope you MrDJC has some decent bruising to show for his time in the wars. Mine generated much sympathy from total strangers.

    And to keep with the thread topic; our Lechon at dinner was stupendous! We've both eaten too much, so are slumped on the sofa, watching golf.

    I faceplanted embarassingly on only the 2nd day of a 2 month trip to NZ. Thought I'd broken my hip. Turned out that my new "Storm Rider" walking shoes had very slippery soles at the first sign of any wet or damp. Have been petrified wearing them ever since. Have only just round to buying new ones

    I assume Dennis wasn't in any way to blame for Mr DJC fall?

    L: remnants of last nights chilli with a slice of cheese and the remnants of olives on the side.
    D: lamb from the slow cooker (been in worcestheire sauce and soy sauce and a little water with carrots and a leek) served with broccoli and cabbage.
    Ff greek with dc and 2 squares 100%

    Many thanks for all the good wishes @DJC3 @Goonergal @ziggy_w @zauberflote @maglil55 @ianpspurs - I do really miss my old job as I did love it but in life the things we can't change we just have to accept and get on with it as best we can and make the most of it.

    @ianpspurs Big congrats to you and the Good Food Fairy - I hope yous will have many more happy years together

    @DJC3 Poor Mr DJC sometimes you can get a right dull one from a fall - I remember the last fall I had was when I worked at the doctors years ago and I had finished work and wore heels at the time and managed to trip myself up in the middle of the road and the only thing I could think of was I had to get up or I would end up getting run over as it was a dark winters night and then I thought I have helped everyone all day and there's no-one here to help me. I hobbled for weeks. Do take good care of OH some tlc

    @Goonergal by coincidence I remembered to buy almond butter at morisons tonight - how long does it last once opened in the fridge and any suggestions what you do with it apart from baking? I was thinking of just putting it on top of my dark chocolate? That was an early start for you this morning - I may have to do 6am starts (not many I hope). My hubby was having a chuckle at me having to work a Sunday but it was actually fine.

    @zauberflote I just put a teaspoon of peanut butter on top of a square of lindtt - it feels like a treat and it is for me

    Brunch - SLC roll with a bratwurst sausage (leftover from yesterday) and cup of earl grey

    Dinner - on the way home from work tonight - my first week back working after 6 months of furlough/redundant I went via the chinese takeaway and had a mushroom and onion omlette and garden peas (so I wasn't too bad) and reckoned I deserved it after working hard (well may be not that hard) - hey I am good to everyone else and decided to be good to myself - a wee welcome back to work treat - well I can't go out to celebrate at the moment so next best thing I say.

    Also, since being back to work I find I am less hungry and don't even think about food/snacking - I think with being a lot busier now I am not having time to think about food which is another plus as I do love my food.

    Sorry to hear about OH having a fall.... I hope he is ok and doesn't suffer from concusion or long term issues and heals quickly.....

    I remember when I was at work about 15 years ago was rushing trying to fix a clients computer and quickly was turning around and head butted my head hard on a brick wall I can't remember falling down BUt I did fall .. funnily enough all I remember was screaming oh [email protected] in front of group of people and also the Director of our department bahaha oh well....... and ended up with the biggest golf ball lump on my head concused and suffered for years with sever migranes but luckily no longer get them....

    Woke up with BSL of 7.9 I know it was from the late night snacking.....

    Then had a quick coffee got dressed and Went out to a coffee shop to meet up with my sister for brunch had avocado on toast 2 poached eggs bacon Cherry tomatoes and fetta cheese was dressed with a mustard seed balsamic dressing was really yummy and I'm still very full demolishing it before thought about taking a photo of it ... also first time using the scanning system to register attendance for covid-19 very simple just need to use your camera and it automatically opens up a web page to fill in details....

    Not sure if I will have dinner tonight as still quite full but will see how I feel later if I do eat.... although I am currently sitting back at home watching a cooking show on TV making pizza bAhaha lol....

    Ahem. I’ve never stored it in the fridge and frankly, around here it never lasts long enough to even worry about it going off. I can eat the stuff for England. Favourite method was mixing with extra thick double cream. Putting on top of dark chocolate would be good too. In the days that Lidl protein rolls were still available it was also pretty decent on those.

    So, I've made an account and found the button but it looks like you want to keep your recipes to yourself!
    What am I doing wrong, and what do I have to do to get initiated in your secret recipe circle?

    There's quite a few of us on CMT all with our same forum names as here. It's not what you have to do more what we have to! Is you CMT name Antje77? I'll go looking for you and add you to my circle. You do the same in reverse.
