    I have to agree on the airfryer. I use ours a lot of the time. Even Hubby has taken to using it to bake 1/2 baguette for himself and produce various hot concoctions on the warm bread.

    Weird thing happened this evening, had delicious roast lamb, cauliflower rice, broccoli, kale, parsnips & small amount of peas/carrots. Post meal on Libre it’s spiked me to 8.9. Yet a sirloin steak with similar green veg & about 20g Quinoa only took me up to 7.4. Out of the 2 I’d have put money on the one with quinoa spiking me more yet it didn’t??

    The lamb did have a luxury gravy but only 8g of carbs for half the pack do can’t believe it’s just that. Cumulative effect of everything with the meal?
    Back down to 6.9 now after 80 minutes!

    Evening all.

    Woke up very hungry and as I was heading out walking for the day, prepped a breakfast of corned beef fried with onions,megs and some grated cheese. Didn’t finish it, but proved to be a good move as was out from 8am to 5pm.
    Dinner on return was spatchcock poussin with a 4 pepper marinade (courtesy of Waitrose) airfried and great crispy skin.

    My recent SLC delivery only took a couple of days to arrive this time I was confused as I had thought it was my DGF delivery - it was that quick in arriving I hadn't expected it!

    Great stuff with the continued weight loss @Sugarlisa

    Haven’t eaten much yet today, but boy am I ready to. Dinner is smelling delicious from the oven, but have needed to stray from the planned OMAD.

    ‘Lunch’ has been dessert followed by a starter. Found a few squares of Montezuma’s Absolute Black with orange and cocoa nibs lurking in a drawer (the bit without squares marked, but I’d guess about 6) and had half melted with some double cream added in. Followed a while later with a starter sized portion of ‘bits’ lurking in the fridge - corned beef, Red Leicester and some of the IKEA cheese plus one small sugarless pickled onion.

    Dinner (luckily planned for around 3-3.30) will be roast lamb shoulder and cauliflower cheese. Can’t wait!

    Just heard from one of my SIL in Summerland Point (rest are outside Sydney). She was saying there had been an outbreak in the North Beach area which was causing the restrictions.

    I'm sort of aiming for OMAD today because of schedule but feel hungry now, even though 2 hours ago I ate:
    2 thick slice roast beef, spread with cream cheese and salsa
    A tomato
    A small h/m mince pie with double cream
    75g ff greek with 1 large teaspoon almond butter.

    Carb manager tells me I'm way under on calories and a bit under on protein so maybe a bit more meat or eggs later

    Full fat Greek-style yoghurt with fresh (well, defrosted!) raspberries, cream, topped with and chopped Whitworths mixed, roasted nuts for breakfast. Plus black coffee.

    Lunch has been h/m spinach and lentil soup. A hefty dose of lovely Stilton. Then my daily half pint of full milk and some Lindt 99% choc - a heavenly combination.

    Dinner will be h/m lamb casserole, cooked with carrots, parsnips and chicken stock, slightly thickened with a bit of pearl barley. Served with Spring Greens and parsley. And maybe a glass or two of Claret. :) A typical easy-going low(ish) carb day.

    2 glasses red wine, watered down, while running a zoom quiz resulted in eating half a pack of pork crunchies and 2 squares 100% spread with almond butter, so my omad didn't work

    @SlimLizzy don't think you are stressing unnecessarily. My family's "cootie circle" hasn't changed since March 6. I haven't kept up with the details of everybody's lockdowns, but if you are uncomfortable seeing your gallivanting daughter, then if you can, explain this to her. If your parents are old enough that you may be excused for being their watchdog, you could mention something to her about them as well. [I know this should be on parallel thread but please forgive! I haven't even been there in days]
    @Annb reading your updates from earlier this week-- wrangling multiple conditions with differing requirements is a bear. I am sorry you are in the fray.
    @DJC3 I will follow up on your daughter. So scary.
    @annabell1 that is very sad news re your GP. I am sorry.
    @Rachox lovely plated dinner! I am now very confused. I know prawns are shrimp. But shrimp cocktail here is a little bowl of a sauce made of ketchup and horseradish, with a row of large tail-shell-on shrimp lined up hooked over the lip of the bowl, and maybe a lemon wedge. You squirt the lemon in your face (well, that's where mine winds up! { @Antje77 "winds up"!!! as in winding a watch, not Wind in the Willows}), then dip the shrimp in the sauce, with your fingers because the shell is still on the tail. Yours looks like something I'd call shrimp salad. Is that what everybody means by prawn cocktail?
    @DCUKMod I wouldn't know Sambuca if it booped me on the nose. I've heard/read of it and sort of associate it with golden Mediterranean seaside flirtatious afternoons. @Antje77 okay your trick is probably something some of my classmates in college would have tried. We had several class clowns....
    @maglil55 hugs for your 12 days and still you're going strong!
    @ianpspurs my last labs looked nothing like what my gizmos had been telling me. More recently MrZF had some labs and his FBG (which had been 4.6 a year before-- NOT fasting!) was .....3.1! And they said, oh, if you feel fine it's a lab error and we won't worry about it. <tears hair out>
    Oooo down to 8 posts!
    Go @Sugarlisa on the weight [email protected] those raspberries were fresh 5 seconds before freezing so to me they count as fresh!
    @MrsA2 my DIL teaches 10/11-yr-olds virtually. It's a wonder she doesn't pour wine into her seltzer can! It's like herding cats!
    Wow. I'm at the end. Not sure I believe it lol.
    Today bfast avocado, a few pecans, boiled egg, 1/2 sq Lindt 90%, flax crisps/dilute soymilk, and that was 2 hours after I started. The other 1/2 Lindt and a few parmesan Whisps.
    At some point: 2 spoon-tips peanut butter, some skyr yogurt/olive oil.
    Barre class
    Supper cherry tomatoes, orange bell pepper, cucumber, spinach/hm dressing, 2 boiled eggs, 2 spoons cottage cheese (I could eat that stuff all day but oh my the plumbing backup...), flax crisps/soy
    Good night all, stay safe, may your vaccines come to you in orderly fashion, better than DHF and SLC orders (what is Peterborough going to do when the vaccine comes to town lol?), and good morning. Hope many of you saw Jupiter and Saturn dancing!
