    Brunch - 2 slices slc bread with simple butter, cheese & tomato (I just had a notion for it). 1 square of lindtt 90% with peanut butter on top. Mug of earl grey tea

    Dinner - chicken breast with diane sauce over the top with mediterranean vegetables. Small slice of hubby's chocolate birthday cake (naughty! but nice). Mug of earl grey tea.

    I think I may have some alcoholic drinks tonight, on the other hand, I bought a 2L plastic bottle out of the £1 shop as I think some days I don't drink enough water although I do try, so I can now see exactly what I do/do not drink water wise in a day - I think I have another 2 glasses to drink today and then I will have drunk my 2L of water today.

    two slices of seriously low carb toast with peanut butter & a scraping of suite marmalade (not at the same time, but might be nice!)
    A piece of hot smoked salmon tomato and cucumber

    Take away curry Tandori mix tonight, no rice or naan :( and 3 squares of Cadbury's new low sugar chocolate about 5/4grams carbs

    Had breakfast today for a change https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/judys-low-carb-porridge if you haven’t tried this I wouldn’t bother, I didn’t like it at all, very slimy. No idea why I decided to waste all those carbs on a breakfast like that.
    Lunch was a ham salad, including h/b egg, avocado and h/m coleslaw followed by DGF choc brownie and cream.
    Dinner was 2 airfried chicken thighs and a few roast Mediterranean veg
    Well done on the water drinking @Mrs T 123 I struggle to drink enough of it too.

    Had to wake to the alarm today ready for yoga, but was in a deep deep sleep and dreaming. I hate waking like that. Bg not so good either

    12:00 2 scrambled eggs, I slice ham, half an avocado, 4 pecans. 1 lc hot chocolate drink

    Asda order arrived, but somehow it hadn't saved my final lot of changes grr, and for the third week in a row they substituted onions for leeks, so now have 4kg of onions!
    6:30 hm chicken curry made with swede and carrots. Boys had rice too. Small ff greek with seeds. 2 sqs 100% and 1 red wine.
    While it was cooking we nibbled on half a packet of Mr Porky pork strips, billed as light, they were too hard and not like the pork crunchies I have been enjoying. I couldn't get any of the latter in Morrisons and they never ever show on Asda online. I get really cross when the only thing I can have is not stocked. Its not like I can choose anything else instead, yet there are 25 offerings of potato crisps. Grr again.

    I know some of you order scratching type things on line but the bbe dates are so short. How do you manage?

    Are you using a recipe for your curry, or just chucking everything in? I have some stewing steak for tomorrow and could do with a good slow cooker curry recipe

    Wednesday 13 January - Bed 6.6 FBG 6. Catch up time again. Brother still holding his own and Home Schooling continues.

    B. TAG and 2 slices of SLC toast with ox tongue and coleslaw.
    L. Nothing
    D. Omelette 2 eggs with pancetta, mushrooms , tomato and cheese. Wilted spinach and a few veggie chips.

    Thursday 14 January - Bed 6.3 FBG 6.2

    B. TAG and 2 slices of SLC toast with ox tongue and coleslaw (becoming a habit)
    L. Nothing
    D. Used my last pack of Lidl high protein noodles from the freezer with pork meatballs in a tomato and garlic sauce and parmesan. 1 truffle and a handful of cherries.

    @shelley262- you must be so pleased that your Mum got her vaccine. Hope all goes well in the coming weeks. @Mrs T 123 - yes, that was just Royal Mail delivery. That's what I don't get since, as I said, you are just the other side of Edinburgh to me. There again it doesn't explain how my DGF orders seem to bunk in Peterborough unless (as @ianpspurs says) it is just Peterborough!

    Hiya no no recipe I make a Mix of spices of equal amounts of each spice inc chilli flakes,turmeric,cumin,coriander, cinnamon, ginger,garlic and onion granules mix and keep in plastic box and the use about five teaspoons per curry for two of us. I cook some Mediterranean veg ( courgettes, a few onions, lots of peppers, and a few cherry tomatoes) about a handful in total in pan in olive oil add the mixed spices and then add chicken stock. I will add to slow cooker and then quickly brown the chicken pieces with skin on for flavour and add. Then slow cook all day tends to thicken up over time. I chop fresh Corriander and sprinkle on top. I’ve also used pastes in past but they can have some high carb counts and odd ingredients so went back to preparing my own mix.

    Friday 15 January - Bed 6.6 FBG 6.7. End of the first week of home school. A bit of a meltdown today but he calmed down and got on with more algebra and a bit of work on Time - months, days, weeks, leap year etc. Only did 1/2 day since Friday is half day. Generally, I reckon we got through more work in one week than they do in 4 in school. I'm shattered though. After home time it was out with son for a shopping trip with youngest grandson who was set on getting one of these Asian lucky cats! We got one too. To be honest some good luck would be very welcome.
    B. TAG and 2 slices of SLC toast with ox tongue and coleslaw.
    L. Few cherries and a coffee after the shopping trip.
    D. Spit roast chicken, veggie salad, coleslaw, avocado, 2 mini mozzarella and a slice of SLC bread and butter. 1 truffle (they are taking a while to go at 1 occasional truffle).

    Tomorrow back to visit brother and turn my attention to my mound of ironing.

    My mum used to make kafta and would add a peice of cheese in the middle which I enjoyed... miss my Mums cooking and her creations mum doesn't cook now days since her accident but it has given me memories to try and make it one day thanks for the reminder

    Breakfast 1 slice sourdough with butter and two pouched eggs 50g of the bread has 22g carbs minus 2.5g fibre my slice weighed 22g so it works out approximately 11g of carbs with breakfast.

    Have some lamb cutlets and a small pork belly defrosted so planning to cook the pork in my air fryer any tips air fryer uses to cook the pork? I think will just grill lamb chops maybe both been defrosting in fridge for 2 days so will need to be cooked at least today or tomorrow.

    Today at 3pm is my doctors memorial which will be boardcadsted via a video link his funeral was 2 weeks ago and due to covid19 only family and small gathering were able too attend although it was broadcasted for his family overseas it was a private gathering which I respected but very grateful they decided to hold a memorial today for his patients and others who were unable to attend the funeral as I hope it will give me and others closure. I've had people say he was my doctor so get a new one and not understand my grief but he was a big part in supporting me in my health and a beautiful person I think this memorial will help as I'm still griefing his lost.

    Sounds absolutely delicious and I agree about the spice mix, far better to make your own and tailor it to your preference. I always go heavy on the cumin.
    Fresh coriander has to be added at the table here, I love it but daughter can’t stand it. Apparently it’s a genetic thing where to some people, fresh coriander tastes like soap - she can spot the smallest amount in a wrap or sprinkled on a takeaway curry.

    Yes I don't get it either - I had to pay £6.99 for mine to be delivered next day by dpd (which I find a lot more reliable than Royal Mail) but the next best delivery was £5.99 for goods to be despatched in 2-3 days and the £4.50 is for when they despatch the order in 4-5 days and then well there's Peterborough!

    Evening all. Yet again I’m way behind and haven’t read back through the posts yet.

    Today was an OMAD day. Dinner was air fried boneless lamb leg, picked up for a bargain price in Morrison’s last weekend. Rubbed the generously fatty top with olive oil and rosemary and garlic salt, then air fried for 25 minutes. Meat was juicy, skin crispy. Wish I’d bought more - there were a number of small joints. Pic in carnivore corner.

    mid morning, a lc hot chocolate but made with a different brand of almond milk, a different brand of cocoa and a different sweetner. It wasn't nearly as nice as usual so have some detective work and testing to do

    L. Portobello mushrooms baked with a chorizo, cheese and spring onion filling, with side salad

    Made some crackling from pork skin to use as coating crums in the future.

    Tums not been too good so may skip anything else today
