    It all sounds delicious, I don’t think there’s such a thing as far too much butter!

    this is why my mugs are 650mls (or more).
    Same with cold drink tumblers.
    I simply cannot be bothered with the endless trips for refills... :hilarious:

    Yesterday:

    no B
    L was chunks of cheddar, goats milk Brie and Wensleydale accompanied by a lush hot chutney
    S a small bowl keto muesli, with double cream
    D homemade lamb burglars. One with garlic and herb, the other with chilli and mango chutney.

    Hi All
    Breakfast is still slice HiLo toast cooled, thick butter, copious tea. Agree with earlier comments about tea I need three large mugs to get me going in the morning.
    Lunch has been two thin slices Dr Almond bread with various cheese, cold meat and a little coleslaw. Supper on Monday was omelettes to move surplus eggs along, mine was cheese & tomato. Tuesday supper was chilli mini mestballs with spag for Mr PM and broccoli for me, couldnt get hold of a courgette to spiralise! Today supper will be panfried lamb chop, mushrooms and leftover broccoli. Will take a walk down to the village shop later in the vain hope of finding an aubergine and anything else that takes my fancy! Our shop is small but gets a small selection of fruit and veg so you never know what you will find on any given day.
    I can predict that lunch tomo will be cold meat, cheesey coleslaw and perhaps spoon of h/m Waldorf salad. Evening is the traditional Chunky Cod fingers with veg to be decided.
    I am always surprised to read about the extent of food wasted in the home as virtually nothing gets wasted in this house. Its also helpful doing a big shop fortnightly and eating your way through with the aid of the fridge and freezer.

    Evening all.

    Feeling the odd one out. One mug of tea and a large glass of iced water does it for me in the morning, and in the summer I can skip it altogether in favour of extra iced water.

    Today has turned into an OMAD+ day. Brunch was 20% mince fried with onions, one of the huge double yolk eggs, 1 ‘normal’ egg and some grated Parmesan sprinkled on top. Followed by some plain Greek yoghurt.

    Just finished the tub of yoghurt in lieu of dinner as not particularly hungry.

    only lunch so far today
    3 eggs omelette with salmon, leeks and broccoli in. All leftovers from previous meals. No food waste here ever either @PenguinMum
    Oh, and 2 sqs h/m lc millionaires

    Then trip to the dentist for crown prep. Came home, slept 2 hours and covid injected arm hurting like hell again! Wondering if something in the the tooth injection has sparked something?

    Trying to ignore the savoury aromas emanating from the kitchen as the boys source their own supper, think they've gone for pasta so am staying out of the way.

    Might have a little cheese later with my weekly zoom social

    In the mornings I just have 1 cuppa (don't think I could have another so soon) and a glass of water and the same as @Goonergal in the summer/warmer weather don't bother with the tea and just drink water all day and maybe 1 or 2 pepsi max some days.

    Brunch - 2 cheesey chaffles (still trying to use up almond flour) made in to a sandwich with ham in between. Mug of earl grey tea

    Dinner - warm chargrilled chicken with avocado and side salad.

    I had the oxford vaccine this pm so next couple of days will be interesting ... oh and I had a nice options hot chocolate with double cream on top when I came home from having jag but before having dinner

    Evening all.
    Coffee for me until lunchtime then leftover smoked haddock in creamy spicy sauce, which was yesterday’s dinner. 1 DGF blondie to follow.
    Switched to tea after lunch, many double mugs. Dinner was storecupboard mixture as I haven’t been shopping for days. Tuna and h/m mayo, avocado way past its best ( not much waste here either @PenguinMum ) h/b egg, lettuce ( also past its best) and some grated courgette I bought to try the courgette fritters but haven’t got round to yet. Another DGF blondie and 2 more mugs of tea

    Think comments re vax are for @Mrs T 123 ?
    Me and OH and autistic son had Pfizer and all of us only had a sore arm. Autistic adult son only had mild soreness!

    Hi all grey cold day again today but helped me stick at my paid work. I’m doing extra days at the moment to prepare for a planned retirement from paid work at the end of March. Can’t come soon enough with my other unpaid work of family caring increasing by the day!
    Lunch one slice of bacon,one egg and slice of lc hm toast followed by coffee with 50g of montezumas 100% with peppermint oil (sounds a lot but only 4g of carbs) throughout afternoon!
    Dinner salmon in lemon butter with cauliflower cheese and asparagus plus glass of dry white wine followed by DGF blondie with yoghurt.

    @shelley262 brilliant news about the planned retirement! We're now 2 years in, having gone 5 years early and don't regret a second, not even the Covid year

    Lunch got a bit picky and spread out. 2 boiled eggs went and a chunk of camembert and some tastes as I was cooking the caulifower cheese savoury thing to freeze

    Dinner was a spicy veg tomato stew finished with eggs.
    Somehow 4 monetzumas eggs have vanished today too, not sure when

    Couple of days to catch up on. My low dough chicken coating didn't come in time for yesterday so by passed lunch and dipped three drumsticks in paxo crumbs and the rest in a nando's sauce with halloumi fries as a side. Today two rashers of bacon, three sausages and a fried egg with a small slice of lower carb bread for lunch. Dinner starter two small slices of lower carb toast with pate followed by smoked mackrel and stilton salad with squirt of mayo. Strawberries and double cream dessert.
