    Chocolate cherry liquers can still be in your life. Infused (probably with brandy) cherries (I'd chop slightly), the enrobed (description shamelessly stolen from HC products) in your favoured dark chocolate.

    I've recently done chocolate and ginger (not infused) for my OH with great success, although the 90% I chose for him was a bit too bitter for him. he'll get through it in time though

    Hi All
    Yesterday’s supper took an unexpected turn after peering in the fridge...toasted chunks of aubergine, red onion and tomatoes sprinkled with EVO and Italian dried herbs accompanied by two good pork sausages.
    Today is oc Fishfinger Firsday (@ianpspurs owns the trademark). Glad you enjoyed the goose and St Emilion, I would have liked that but Mr PM wouldnt.
    @maglil55 thanks for the soup recommendations. I dont like cream but I assume a swirl of FAGE yogurt would be ok. Agree about the white pepper @DJC3 essential in egg dishes and even moreso in swede, celeriac or any mash. Have just ordered a swede in this week’s farm box.

    Haha great! See if @Goonergal ( any any other nut butter addicts) are in, then let’s pick a date. We should probably all tickle our tastebuds with a spoonful immediately it’s open, just to make it harder to resist.

    Is that the same as Gravlax which I know as salmon cured with sugar, salt and dill and served with a dill & mustard sauce? It certainly doesn't get buried. It's a variation on smoked salmon and served as an appetiser.

    Yep - you're right! Well, that's ok, I will just have to lift my keto baking game in the near future! At least I have plenty of recipes already from here to try out and I bought Carolyn Ketchum's book "The Ultimate Guide to Keto Baking" a little while ago, so that should provide further inspiration.

    Noooo! Black pepper, freshly ground. I'm assuming you are all talking about the orange swede we call turnip not the little white fleshed ones? I suppose it's all what you are brought up on but Burns night your Haggis, neeps and tatties - tatties were always turned into a beautiful smooth & creamy mash (with butter and the top of the milk if you didn't have cream) and the neeps (turnip) mashed with loads of butter & black pepper. You did not dare deviate from Granny's recipes!

    Yes, I mean orange neeps. As a Scot, I can take my neeps either way, but do like them with sour cream and white pepper.

    Maybe I've been associating with this Englishman (of full Irish descent) for way too long. :)

    You had me questioning both my memory and my aunts knowledge, so I did a quick Google search. Very interesting!
    Also very much off topic, so more on the origin of gravlax in the parallel thread: https://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/th...aten-parallel-chat.177870/page-4#post-2330078

    Have been out with a friend today, so had quite a lot of cheese and a small bite of my friends roll. Dinner will be a very nice stew with different veggies (savoy cabbage, broccoli, leek, onion) with fried mushrooms and some chorizo. I had planned on making a beetroot salad with warm goat's cheese to go with it but I think I'm lazy and I'll add 2 fishfingers (just regular ones which have been buried in the freezer for a long time), thanks for the idea, @PenguinMum !

    Plan for tomorrow is the beetroot salad with goat's cheese and walnuts and a creamy celeriac soup. I've never made celeriac soup but the celeriacs were on offer so now 2 have two of them :)
    Of course it may happen I'll eat something completely different tomorrow, my cooking plans are prone to change.

    I may have bought a pot today - not yet opened! We’ll have to have the same size pot/jar - otherwise the competitor in me will find the biggest jar available!

    Evening all.

    @PenguinMum I won’t lower the tone by sharing my misreading of the first line of your post. Suffice to say I’m still chuckling to myself.

    A very odd day of eating today, and a hungry day.

    Breakfast/brunch around 10am (having been up from 5am it felt more like brunch) of salami and chorizo.
    During a long morning meeting also ate about 60g 90% chocolate and a bag of pork puffs.
    Late lunch of doner kebab meat and onion - after an over running morning meeting, stepped out for a short walk and decided a take away was in order.

    Still stuffed so unlikely to eat anything else.

    Breakfast: Cheese omelette (again! I love cheese and eggs)
    Lunch: A bit naughty, but a chicken wrap as I was out. Still below my daily carb "limit", I guess. Postprandial BG was 7 mmol/L.
    Dinner: Gonna be 2 pork loin steaks and probably another cheese omelette depending on how hungry I get I suppose!

    Ultrasound of the liver tomorrow too o_Oo_O

    Haha good point. And a good excuse for an enormous jar. How big is the jar you have?
