    Since I have been eating this hi lo bread my word I crave pate! I like the brussels or chicken liver that Sainsbury do, plus they are cheaper! Tried their new Buffalo Wings but not good, very bland, I'll stick with the Firecracker. I've really got to stop buying those Schar's Curvies though, they are my downfall!

    BTW if anyone wants a nice lower carb bread, this is what I now use and I used to be a white bread freak. Goes really nicely as toast and all types of eggs, salmon and of course pate go beautifully. Only downside is it isn't really a bacon sandwich loaf!

    Breakfast; Hi lo toast with butter, home made granola with almond milk
    Brunch: Half a bacon sandwich with friend in temp outdoor cafe at Morrisons, Hungry when I got back, must be all the talking, so had three rollitos from morrisons new tapas range and a cracker. Fibre one protein bar from the stash my friend brought me (she shops in Tesco, the only stockists of the protein variety) It looked very furtive doing the swap over in the car park:shifty:
    Dinner: half a lamb shank, green beans, carrots, home made gravy. Strawberries and cream. two squares of green and blacks mint velvet.

    Chicken with butter and sage sauce was yum!

    Way behind again Sunday bed 5.8 FBG 6.1

    B. TAG and 2 slices of SLC toast with Dairylea
    L. Nothing
    D. Gammon steak with a few peach bits, one of my broccoli/cauliflower souffle things, a green veg mix. A DGF Coconut and raspberry and my usual campari and soda.

    @DJC3 & MrsA2 - I have developed a hunger streak too. Probably because I've had too much going on lately.

    Monday bed 6.4 FBG 5.7

    B. TAG - no time for anything else as Hubby was getting second jab today and he had to come with me to get the boys to school then a mad dive to the drive through vaccination centre.
    L. Nothing
    D. Last of the drumsticks air fried with chimichurri and a cheese and sour cream dip. Yet another DGF coconut & raspberry.

    Tuesday bed 5.6 FBG 6.2

    B. TAG no time again for anything else. Boys to school then straight to Physio. I needed it as I've really been suffering with my legs and vertigo coming and going.
    L. Had to pick No 1 grandson up on return from Physio for home schooling but grabbed a bit of SLC toast with egg mayo.
    D. Remains of a cold meat assortment I had in the fridge with a few santini tomatoes and a few veggie chips. DGF strawberry & cream and I had a grenade ice cream bar as well.

    I'd also had a black tea and an alcohol free, lager at brother's house. Travelled up with Hubby as niece goes back to Australia on Friday from Manchester. We were there a while. All very emotional since, as she said, she's seen me more than once a week for the past 3 months so it will be odd not seeing us constantly. She's busy now getting her covid test ready to fly. We'd hoped quarantine might have been lifted by the time she returned but no such luck. 14 days in a hotel in Perth and when she "escapes" she'll still have another 4 hour flight to get to the east coast.

    Wednesday 5.6 FBG 6

    Did I mention, just to add to everything else that was going on, my dishwasher is kaput, and my freezer went weird. Dishwasher, fine, Hubby is washing by hand currently until I decide what I want. The big fridge freezer is another matter. Fridge is fine but the freezer part.....son reckons it's haunted. It stopped producing ice but the ice still in the caddy was melting, running down the inside of the freezer door and refreezing. I have stalactites on my freezer door! Most food remained frozen but the ice cream had to be ditched. Boys ice cream lollies were liquid inside. Engineer was coming in today and would you believe the ice caddy was full when we got up! Engineer really went over it but we're at the stage it could be a few things so we have to wait for it to go weird again! Boys ice creams are also so frozen they have to thaw a bit before they can bite them.

    B. TAG
    L. 2 slices of SLC bread with ox tongue and coleslaw.
    D. Remains of yet more cold meats Hubby had yesterday, tomatoes and a cauliflower thingy. DGF blueberry and lemon.

    This sounds like the perfect solution really :D

    Dinner was green beans and mushrooms with spicy pork belly pieces again :hungry:
    I'm also in the process of making a new batch of chocolate and nut things to fill the freezer (waiting for it to set enough to be able to cut in pieces, but not set so much it will break everywhere).
    This time with roasted walnuts, almonds and experimental pumpkin seeds. I noticed that according to the bag they were best before march 2020, so high time I used them :)
    And yes, my mum's fruit bowl is put to good use for the au bain marie melting of the ingredients. It's perfect because it fits any pot!

    Thank you. Makes sense to draw out as much moisture as poss if putting in a dish with a bit of sauce.

    Luckily my hungry 24 hours proved to be just that. No idea what caused it.

    Skipped breakfast as straight into an exercise class followed by a walk with friends. This one we rested halfway at a pub for a garden lunch. I had burger with salad and left the bun. Very civilised albeit cold (weather I mean, not the burger) just munt tea to drink.

    An lc hot chocolate when home again

    D: newly invented cheesy mince layer bake. The layers were beef mince cooked with onions and a tin chopped tomatoes with layers of cabbage and slice edam cheese, sort of lasagne like without the pasta and with added cabbage.
    An lc brownie and cream to finish

    For future reference @maglil55 , never have a PERTH arrival point. I can say this with complete freedom given I live here. The Premier of that state is a total moron with strong totalitarian tendencies who thinks nothing of enforcing a state lockdown with little or no notice, all over a single case of covid.

    Evening all.

    Enjoying a little break away from home = no air fryer, but also very little food prep/clearing up :D

    Lunch today was 3 chicken drumsticks - leftover from a raid of the Morrison’s ‘Market Kitchen’ rotisserie the night before and reheated.
    Dinner was from Five Guys. Bunless bacon burger with grilled onions.

    FBG higher than I’d like this morning and continued rising after 1hr dog walk so had breakfast to see if that would stall it. Scrambled eggs did the trick.
    Hair appointment at lunchtime hurrah! 9 months worth of locks cut off. Had a bit of a walk along the surprisingly empty Fistral beach which was glorious.
    Starving when I finally got home so airfried a couple of belly pork slices ( from the half pig we got yesterday from a local farm) and a chicken thigh. While they were cooking I had a DGF cake and BG shot up again. I’d often thought I might be sensitive to these and I think I now have proof. Probably a good thing as I’m trying to recondition my sweet tooth, but a bit sad too.
    Dinner, which I only ate half of as I’d not long finished lunch was a takeaway bacon cheeseburger. Rest of the family wanted a Friday night takeaway, I should have just declined really, such a waste.
    (Had room for a glass of red wine though)
