    Thanks for the link. I hadn’t forgotten the delicious wild shrimp thing - I’ve been looking for an excuse to go into town for weeks now, so in a way I’m glad Dennis ate my glasses - every cloud!!
    I think you must have cleaned those 2 Lidl’s out of lollies

    Hi All only two days behind. Had the Pfizer jab on Thurs aft and they kindly agreed to give Mr PM one of their spares which made me so happy. Very well organised effort in the town hall getting through abt 60 an hour we reckon. No side effects other than slightly sore arm the next day for both of us. Its wonderful to be able to look forward to the new normal at the same time.
    Since Friday breakfast has a slice of HiLo toast and copious tea. Made a ‘clear out the veg drawer” soup which was quite delicious and lasted two days. I still had some Dr Almond bread so had two small slices buttered with the soup both days. Friday night’s supper was salmon baked in foil with a dash of Kikoman Teriyaki sauce, Mr PM had spicy rice and sweet chilli sauce. I paired it with roasted med veg, no sauce!
    Yesterday we had an Indian t/a delivered. I had my usual Tandoori King Prawns (4, wish it was 6) and cauli Bhajee. One popadom was had before with a couple of glasses of Pinot Noir (Cono Suir Organic, on offer at Sainsburys and really nice, have put it on my next order). Today need to use some up some egg mayo for lunch. Supper will be Mr PM’s least fave of Chicken, chorizo, red pepper and tin toms casserole thing with paprika. I needed to use up the ingredients which were in the fridge going out of date. I might turn his into a pasta bake which will make it a completely different dish! Fussy men! I will likely have mine with cauli rice to soak up the juices.
    @DJC3 i was also envious of your fresh shellfish. I adore fresh crab though I am horribly allergic to lobster and carry antihistamine pills in my purse in case I inadvertently come across some which happened once with an Asian lightly fried starter pick n mix billed as vegetarian. It was ordered and eaten in a friend’s garden (they didnt know of my allergy) in the dark but two hours later I was covered in hives and my throat was constricting. I am a lot more careful now and dont have langoustines either just in case.

    I expect I have some jars even older, I’d use it anyway, it might taste less intense but that’s all.

    Good to see you back @shelley262
    Today’s food started at about 11:30 with a cheese omelette and chilli sauerkraut.
    Dinner mid afternoon was slow roast belly pork ( -about 7 hrs) with roast cauliflower, sprouts with bacon and joy of joys: lc Yorkshire pud. I got the recipe from a fb group. Puffed up gloriously. The texture was more like the Pork Crunch style of crackling than Yorkies but still v enjoyable and crispy IMG_1614541112.222551.jpg

    Evening all.

    Having a go at the Ted Naiman PE protocol, so upping the protein ratio of my meals. Don’t intend tracking my macros regularly, but ran them through today out of interest. Ended up with 214g protein; 55% fat, 45% protein and 1% carbs.

    Lunch was Nando’s. Boneless thighs and 3 wings. Followed by Fage 0% Greek yoghurt.

    Dinner was 2 pork belly strips cut into pieces, covered with chilli oil and salt and air fried. Yet more yoghurt!

    Apologies that I miss so many posts I forget to click like on many so will just say everyone is a "winner" from this time forward! Threw the chicken coating away as per the wise advice above, but have ordered some more and will be more cautious next time!

    Still continuing a two mile walk a day wearing two coats and the early sun is fabulous. No lactic calf muscles either now, it's amazing how quick the body get used to the exercise again. Looking forward to the woods again when it dries out properly. Dinner last night burgers, fried eggs and a handful of vivaldi chips, first time in a while! No lunch today but dinner was tub of firecracker wings from sainsbury dabbed down a bit to remove some sauce (did check label re sugars and carbs), some lamb fillet chopped into squares and shallow fried with halloumi fries with a touch of sweet chilli sauce. Delicious meal.

    Downside is I'm really struggling to kick the crisps although it's one pack on occasion and I make them last! I've bought some Brazil nuts but what do you all do for snacking in front of the box? If you do! I guess pop corn is a no go?

    Snacking best avoided, especially if it’s ‘in front of the box’ rather than because you’re hungry. Brazil nuts aren’t a bad option though.

    Tea with cream and a glass of iced water for me as normal first thing. Oxtail will go into the IP shortly so that a delicious dinner will magically appear later.

    @Max68 it really is best to avoid snacking, especially in front of the box when it’s so easy to eat mindlessly. It’s one of the most important habits to try to break. ( but very hard I know!)
    I drink copious quantities of tea instead. I’m so lazy I make 2 mugs at a time so as soon as I’ve finished the first I start on the second. I’ve recently found a decaf brand I like which has helped too.
    For an occasional treat you could try these:

    I know what you mean, I can't stand it either hence the query. What are the wasps like?! ;)

    Thanks DJC3 Goonergal, I'll look at the cheesies and brazil nuts for occasion.

    Weather so lovely this weekend so I had planned fence painting today - don’t have many opportunities to do this boring but essential job so went out as planned despite the foggy cold weather. I got completely cold and think this made me deviate from my planned food - call it a feast day - I need to try for a fast day tomorrow to balance back
    Breakfast two boiled eggs and lc hm buttered bread
    Hot Coffee with cream to keep going through morning
    Lunch hm lc toasted bread and cheese followed by a DGF millionaire shortbread
    Mid pm hot black tea and one Aldi choc and nutbar
    Dinner Cajun chicken with salads followed by DGF brownie warm with cream. Just had decaff coffee with hm truffle.
    Feel toastie warm now indoors but also a bit stuffed!

    Yesterday

    Lunch - 2 heck sausages. It was meant to be accompanied with a cheese omelette, but it turns out I don’t like omelette!

    Dinner - plan was butter chicken curry with bare naked rice but no tomato purée, chilli powder or yoghurt left. So H/m katsu curry instead.

    Fibre one protein bar and a montezuma orange truffle.

    Today

    Lunch - 3 boiled eggs with butter, mashed in a cup.

    Dinner - shin of beef stew, mashed cauliflower and saucy cabbage. Probably followed by another truffle!
