    I didn't have a second meal yesterday - too tired to do anything. So today I made the (supposedly) French style peas. I like peas, but not any kind of green beans, nor have I enjoyed cooking lettuce in the past but I decided to make an effort. It was fab! I made enough for at least 2 meals, but it was sooo good that I finished it all. No more food today.

    I fried off half a chopped onion in oil and butter, then added a chopped up potato (naughty me) and fried that off as well. I added some lemon pepper and salt and then about 150 g French beans. Then about 1/2 litre of veg stock and a whole pile (didn't measure but about 150 g) of frozen peas. Then a whole cos lettuce in 2 cm (approx) slices. Cooked for about 1/2 hour. Couldn't resist having the whole lot for my brunch.

    I'll ask Neil to get me some more green beans next time he goes to the shops.

    French style peas is another one that chopped, fried pancetta goes well with. I think it's a Jamie Oliver recipe (although I do have a little recipe book of nothing but peas so it might be that).

    @Annb (and Antje77 - possibly one you can use) - it was a Jamie Oliver recipe but, as usual, I changed it. Here's the main recipe. All I did with this was exclude the flour ( I just reduced the stock,) However, I did fry off chopped pancetta which I added at the end AND I also put shaved parmesan on it before serving. You're right Ann, it is delicious although I'd forgotten about it until you mentioned it.

    Saturday Bed & FBG were both 5.1. Back to jujitsu with the boys. Spoke to SIL while I was waiting for them and arranged to go up next Friday. Shopping after (not much). Then home for 1 hr until son was ready to go out (which pretty much wiped my day out).
    B. TAG and 2 slices of SLC toast with ox tongue and Dairylea.
    L. DGF brookie
    D. Chicken in a creamy Dijon and tarragon sauce with a broccoli/cauliflower souffle thing and a mix of green veg (freezer stuff is reducing). It's just a well as the temperature for the freezer was showing 13° - that's +ve 13°! Which it couldn't be as everything was frozen apart from the odds and sods on the top shelf. If it was 13° I'd have sat in there as that was warmer than outside.
    Did the good old computer trick; switch off; switch back on after 10 mins and........back to flashing 8's with the errors.

    Today Sunday Bed 5.1 again FBG 5.2. Swimming lesson day. I just cannot sleep late although I'm really tired. Awake at 6am, shower at 7am.
    B. TAG and 2 slices of SLC toast with ox tongue and coleslaw.
    L. Another DGF Brookie before heading off to get the boys to swimming.
    D. Usual campari and soda. Rib eye with mushrooms, another green veggie back from the freezer, one onion ring (Hubby was having them so I nicked one) and the broccoli/cauliflower souffle thing (only 2 left in the freezer). The very last of the grenade ice cream bars (hopefully I can buy more later this week if the freezer issues are resolved).

    On the subject of the freezer, overnight it decided to reset itself, produce more ice!! and the freezer is showing -23°! The stalactites are huge though from the ice hopper.

    Niece has also been released from quarantine in Perth, had to stay another night as the flight to Canberra had gone by the time she was released but, she had to check out and move to another hotel for the night as she was in a quarantine hotel. She's now home and delighted to see her husband & sons after 4 months.

    I didn't intend to put potato in it, but, at the last minute, decided I would. Could have done very well without it though. Might try with different additions in future. Maybe some smoked fish, or ham. This is the first time I have eaten green beans of any sort since I decided to no longer eat the green beans my mother prepared. Hated them. But now I shall have them again.

    Yesterday (May 16th)

    Breakfast (8am): 4 sunny side up eggs, black coffee
    Lunch (1pm): Restaurant meal - Caesar salad and naan bread chicken sandwich (ugh shouldn't have done this)
    Snack (3pm): Sun Chips (like a thin wheat cracker), black coffee
    Dinner (8pm): Chicken wings and too much beer
    Evening Snack (10pm) - No food, but more beer

    What an embarrassing day of carb intake, although per my Libre I tolerated it better than expected. Anyway no sense pretending it didn't happen, getting back on the straight and narrow today.

    On the bright side, walked 7.11km to bring my year-to-date total to 612.98km

    Breakfast: 2 rashers streaky bacon and 3 pullets eggs (small but delicious).

    Lunch (unintended but BG dropped v low): 1 avocado chopped up with some crumbled potato crisps.

    Dinner: trout with rhubarb. I asked Neil to get me some trout in today's shopping and expected it to be whole fish that he brought home. I had intended to stuff the trout with rhubarb but what I have is a fillet from what must have been a pretty large trout - I thought it was salmon - I'll just have to cook it on top of the rhubarb instead. It's an experiment, of course, so I'm not sure how it will work out. Should be edible anyway.

    The rhubarb was very sour so I added some raspberries to it and it went very well with the trout. It made a very nice meal. In fact, what I did was bake it with the rhubarb on top. Worth doing again.

    Breakfast: 3 rashers streaky bacon and 3 pullets eggs.

    Lunch will be Co-op "Irresistible" pork sausages - 3.6 g carbs per serving (2 sausages). Not sure if that will be all the food for the rest of the day. Currently very hungry, so maybe not.

    Hi I've not posted for a quite awhile so trying to start doing that again.

    Today I decided to cut my diamcron from 60mr to 30mr have still been doing low carb but was maybe eating more carbs than I should so trying to get my carbs lower again.

    Breakfast 2 eggs scrambled with FF milk cooked in home-made ghee and a 3 cherry tomatoes and a half of a blueberry pancake that was a packet mix that uses oat flour! carbs are high per seve but I only had half of one so approximately 15g carbs at breakfast pancake and tomato and two mugs of black coffee.

    BSL was 6.9mmol/L 2 hours later tested was 6.4 and 3 hours 5.8

    A/tea 2 mugs of black tea and a quest chocolate chip cookie 4g of carbs

    Dinner planning to bake a small peice of roast lamb with some baked cauliflower and Brussels sprouts and see what else maybe sitting in my vegetables draw. And might make some gravey. So approximately 15g to 20g of carbs.
