    2 eggs scrambled with left-over cabbage and carrot plus some spring onion.

    Later will have a sort of French style peas - peas cooked in veg stock with some shredded lettuce, but I'll leave out the potato thickener. Might add a few nuts or seeds.

    I would call these flat beans runner beans. They also look like an Italian one that they call Romano beans. The other green beans are narrower and need their ends trimmed off. I just refer to them as green beans apart from the French green beans (Haricot Vert) which are narrower and more tender. The other one you referred to that you have to pod I call broad beans. Usually I skin the bean itself as well as the skin can be tough.

    Meant to say, a nice easy recipe for the just green beans (haricot vert or otherwise) is cook them to whatever texture you like. Dot an ovenproof dish with bits of butter, put the beans in and scatter grated Cheddar over the top. Season with salt if required and cayenne pepper for a bit of heat. Add some cream on top (not lots). Mix then add more cheese on top, few more dots of butter and put in the oven for 20 mins.

    I've also added things like onion granules or garlic granules. These beans are also nice when cooked tossed in butter and chopped garlic that's been fried. Also good when you cook off chopped pancetta and stir the beans through (garlic goes well in that too). Chopped spring onion also mixes well.

    Thursday bed 5.8 FBG 6. DGF supply arrived today and freezer still causing issues. Think I'm in a race against time to clear the freezer before it goes totally.

    B. TAG and my usual 2 slices of SLC toast with Dairylea.
    L. Nothing. A very intense maths afternoon. Yesterday was fractions (not decimals). Today was decimals and percentages and how they fit with fractions. I thought he did well yesterday but he exceeded that today.
    D. Tripe - my Italian version from the freezer and one of the broccoli/cauliflower souffle things (also from the freezer).
    I did have 2 DGF Brookies ( never had them before; rather more ish).

    @Annb - we've made huge progress with grandson. It's not the schools holding them back. The so called Curriculum for Excellence isn't even close to that. It's dreadful. I subscribed to both English and Scottish curriculums and the English one is vastly superior especially when it comes to literacy. I've told the school that although I'm trying to introduce variety, I will focus one one area if I see a gap. They're certainly not stopping me. I've been fortunate too that when they do give him work to bring home he tells me "We did this ages ago". He still does it though - very quickly!

    Friday - bed 6 FBG 6.5

    Was feeling a bit "off" bit of a sore throat and stuffy again! Weather is dire and cold.

    B. TAG then a mad rush about getting DIL to her clinic, son on a run to recycling quick trip home before going back for grandson for a short schooling session.
    L. Nothing - freezer getting worse. Now has permanent fault showing but Engineer coming Tuesday with lots of parts!
    D. Smoked sausage with mustard and another souffle thing. Has a brookie and a Notella from the DGF supply. Hope the freezer gets fixed before I have to eat them all!

    I feel a lot better now, just have wait it out till I get the results in a couple of weeks and have to do it all again for the problem to be fixed.
    Its not the best food I have had in a private hospital, but they made up in quantity than what you get in a public hospital for breakfast.

    Craig, have you not been diagnosed with diabetes yet? My son is the one who has it here, and he just found out about it. I am a borderline diabetic, but I've been borderline for years. Hoping to head off full-blown diabetes. My breakfast was greek yogurt and whole wheat cereal and almond slivers and dates (in the cereal). My oven isn't working, so it's so hard to cook for Sam. We're both trying to go low carb. It takes time to adjust, I think. Rome wasn't built overnight! My advice is to take is one day at a time.

    Hi @Carolsam and welcome!

    It looks like you’re trying to respond to a post by someone called Craig. Was that on another thread? I can move the post for you if you let me know which thread.
