    Today's food -

    Brunch - 2 slices slc bread toasted with corned beef and tomato. Washed down with a mug of earl grey tea.

    Dinner - breast of chicken wrapped in cheese and bacon with some brussel sprouts and a couple of carrots. 2 squares lindtt 90% with peanut butter on top and another cup of earl grey tea.

    Rather hungry day today had a few other bits and bobs but it is probably better that I don't say what
    they were on here ... :hungry:

    Skipped lunch.
    Mid afternoon: black coffee.
    Dinner: roast chicken thighs stuffed with pork and apple (thanks to Mr Waitrose) with one tiny roast potato and mixed veggies followed by SF jelly, cream and LC chocolate granola.

    Lovely Remembrance service outside church. Saw people i haven't seen so far this year. Sun shone and it was so warm
    L: cheese, olives and tomato. More tiny millionaires. Knew I should have put them in the freezer
    D: roast chicken, half a roasted carrot, qtr roasted parsnip, leeks and broccoli. Yep, 2 more tiny millionaires

    Ready for tomorrow made Berry Bakes
    About 200g soured cream
    About 200g cream cheese
    2 eggs
    ABout 10-15g sweetener
    Teaspoon vanilla or other flavouring (tonight was lemon).
    Mix all above in liquidiser, mixer or bowl

    Like the sound of the Berry Bakes. Might give those a try and they’d probably be fine without the sweetener too, methinks. Do you think they’d freeze?

    Made a soda scone this morning and had one small portion with some cheese. Not a great idea - despite taking even more insulin, BG went up from 12.5 to 14.8!

    Evening meal was the 2nd half of the non-meat loaf from yesterday with a couple of fried eggs. Extra insulin and BG currently 10.7. Probably the best I can hope for today. Still very hungry though. Lots of coffee today.

    I don't think they'd freeze because of the egg. Easy to halve the amounts
    The full recipe is in cmt, its a keto fitness club one

    Two small bell peppers and a tomato filled with the last of the tuna melt things batter and some extra parmesam on top.
    A filled oven baked tomato was a first for me, very nice!

    Breakfast: 2 dippy eggs with SLC marmite soldiers
    Lunch: 1 slice SLC bread toasted with Brussels pate
    Dinner:air fried duck breast with celeriac mash and broccoli followed by DGF raspberry bakewell and cream. 2 or 3 glasses Malbec.
    @MrsA2 I also made that berry bake thing a while ago( I called it an upside down cheesecake) but I lost the recipe so thanks for posting it. I agree it’s lovely.
    @ianpspurs I think it’s time to resurrect the CCBs they were great! ( apart from the first time I made them which was a complete disaster)
    @Antje77 the tuna muffin mix baked in peppers is a really good idea, I loved them too.

    Edit to correct tag

    A 7 inch square tin supposed to cut into 16 portions, but I've had to divide them again. Used a whole 100g bar of 85% for the topping and boy says all he could taste was the chocolate not the almond false caramel layer nor the biscuity bottom. I will freeze the rest and have the odd piece very occasionally .
    I will play with parts of the recipe and maybe use elements in other dishes.
    I've put the recipe in my Copymethat as not sure this link will work
    https://t4s.site/view/https://t4s.site/view/
    3g carbs per 1/16th. Be warned, if even I find them rich,they are very very rich

    Breakfast, tea. But granola.
    Lunch, out of salad and bread so we had soup. Honestly this internet shopping is useless.
    Dinner, ham hock ready meal, didn't use the Apple glaze supplied, instead sprinkled with parmesan style cheese for last 10 mins of cooking time. Carrots, French beans, and small half cob of sweet corn., wine, custard tart. But disappointing, far too much dry pastry. Won't bother again, or at least not from that shop. And much later nearly bedtime two squares of chocolate. One lindt dark intense with orange and one galaxy. Preferred the dark.
    Lemon tea.


    08.11.2020
    FBG was high so had lemon tea first thing then it was cold, took ages to get blood for another BG. But it was going up.
    So quick breakfast coffee and no grain granola.
    Coffee and one of MrSlims shortbread fingers.
    Lunch, lettuce with a pile of coleslaw, couple of radish and same cherry toms, small chunk cucumber, several chunks cheese. Coffee.
    Dinner chicken crown with veg, carrots French beans small cobette sweet corn and spoonful of peas 2 squares the Lindt chocolate, wine and coffee.

    Thank you @maglil55 !
    @Annb hugs for BG
    @Antje77 very beguiling pic there!
    @SlimLizzy I often have the "3-4 days out" issue with online grocery ordering. My grown son works at a big grocery which was a very early adopter of this service. They only have x number of employees, of whom he was once one, in that dept to pick the orders, and half of those are very unreliable. They can only handle so many orders per day, so when things heat up as in lockdown, they get overloaded and have to push customers out based on volume. Probably not wanting to promise what they can't deliver. This Thanksgiving is going to be a big trial for shopping in US!

    Bfast in strange order bc I thought I was to have fasting labs. Brought a boiled egg and pecans in the car with me. Looking forward to avocado and flax crisps at home, and some chocolate.
    Lunch? Or maybe can hold off until "pre-barre snack" of skyr yogurt/olive oil
    Supper might have chicken from a HelloFresh meal I might make, but the other things are high carb.
    Yesterday's supper was great except it didn't agree with me! Roasted green beans, cherry toms, cuke, cottage cheese, flax crisps/dilute soymilk. Lunch had been a can of albacore tuna (not what I usually get!) with olive oil and pomegranate white wine vinegar, dill pickle bottom-of-barrel scraps
    Breakfast had been same as today's, equally spread out due to Sunday school and church schedule.

    Hello all,

    @Antje77 -- The stuffed bellpeppers look delicious.

    Talking of nut butters, I bought some hazelnut butter a couple of weeks ago -- also because of the macros (3.2g of carbs per 100g). Turned out to be really, really good -- can recommend.

    Yesterday ...

    Breakfast: A double decaffeinated espresso with cream and erythritol.

    Lunch: A zucchini-cheese-egg waffle with butter, a serving of baba ghanoush, a serving of guacamole and a serving of canned tuna with celery and mayonnaise.

    Dinner: A waffle with creme fraiche. Some turkey salami. 16g of 88% chocolate with hazelnut butter. Dry red wine.

    @Annb -- Hugs for the stubbornly higher than desired blood sugars.
    @DJC3 -- Thanks for the question re the ice cream the other day. Experiments are on hold for right now due to lack of space in the freezer. Is there a freezer available just for ice cream? Find that the ice cream freezes solidly once in the freezer and it's no longer as tasty.

    Today ...

    Breakfast: A double decaffeinated espresso with cream and erythritol.

    Lunch: A waffle with steak tartare and mayonnaise. Some tuna with celery and mayonnaise. A spoonful of hazelnut butter.

    Dinner: A serving of guacamole and a serving of baba ghanoush (eggplant dip), half a rump steak with an erythritol-based barbeque sauce. Red wine. (Maybe also another teaspoonful of hazelnut butter).

    Today’s intake: B= 2+ litres of TWAM; Dockey: Almond milk latte with SF caramel syrup and 40 gms Dr A choc; L= Cheese mayo + cuc in Romaine leaves as 3 “sandwiches”; EM: Mackerel and avocado salad. Doesn’t seem much but it keeps my weight stable, above the too low point, so obviously enough. While the weather is mild no rush to rock the boat. @Rachox, yes, Mr Waitrose does do those stuffed thighs well. @DJC3 the CCBs belong to a bygone era for me but The Food Fairy may be asked to recreate some if I rediscover my trust in LC. There definitely won’t ever be another bag of Callebaut.

    Whilst I recall, the Lidl Mulled Wine. No NAS, as I remembered, but carbs are nothing too horrendous for an irregular thing.

    Obviously, it could be "cut" with more red wine to un-water it down.

    That sounds too bonkers
