    Hi All
    Yesterday Mr PM was determined to bbq enough mea t for two days but I had a back up plan of his favourite t/a which was what actually happened so I had Tandoori King Prawns and cauli Bhajee and 1 popadom. The bbq will happen this evening the only dry evening probs this week. So easy dinner two nights, only salad required.
    Lunch yesterday for me was a bit of crustless quiche, my first cherry toms of the season from the garden with chopped cucumber.
    @DJC3 I laughed at your description of the crumble, my food pics would not win any prizes but its all about the taste and the carbs oc!

    Skipped lunch.
    Mid afternoon: black coffee and chocolate chia pudding.

    Went to bed with a bg of 6.5 which was surprising after an indulgent evening which included alcohol and chocolates

    Waking was 6.9, so had a busy morning keeping occupied and active in the garden so skipped breakfast and didn't eat until 1:30

    Leftover kofta, salad, pepper and dips. Leftover berry jelly and cream

    D: grilled spicy chicken thighs with courgettes. Leftover berry jelly (all gone now). One very decent, expensive, dark chocolate violet cream.
    given by a well meaning guest. Son has them under lock and key and is allowing me one a day

    Breakfast was sausages and omelette
    Lunch was tuna salad with a pickled egg, a mini Babybel & edam, with some yoghurt and a Grenade Killa bar.
    Dinner was "date night" so we went out for an Indian. I had lamb shashlik with mushroom bhaji, a small aubergine bhaji portion and half a paratha.

    I had no idea children were so useful! I don't have any and this made me start to doubt my decision. Any chance I could I rent your son?

    Didnt want to go for groceries today, so I thought I'd manage with whatever I'd find in the kitchen. Would have been one of my stranger meals, as the only veg left was a very old onion, but then I realised that I didn't have any cat food anymore, no veggies for the guinea pigs breakfast and no nuts or pork scratchings for a midnight snack.
    Please don't tell my pets it was that last part pushing me to the supermarket... :sorry:

    Bought various foods and planned on cauliflower cheese and chorizo sausages for tonight, but on second thought decided I didn't feel like cooking today.
    No problem, I'll have two slices of LC bread shortly, one with grated celeriac with mayo and one with an egg salad I just made. (Mainly eggs mashed with mayo and onion, with bacon strips on top, but in Dutch almost anything mixed with mayonnaise is called a salad, which sounds a lot more sensible than eggs mayo I think :hilarious:.)

    I'll have a friend over for dinner and to help with the bunny pen tomorrow, so thinking of a cheesy oven dish with cauliflower, cheese, and vegetarian shawarma.
    Suggestions or recipes welcome!

    Breakfast: at 9.45 today because I have to go for a US scan of my liver and can't have anything other than fluids for 4 hours beforehand. Just have to hope that the car doesn't play up for this outing - we will be carrying a spare car battery, just in case. I had some leftover spiced chicken, coconut and vegetables with a fried egg on top.

    I'll have to use up some more of the chicken later, so probably some more of it refried with some vegetables, or I might make it into some more soup.

    @MrsA2 and @Antje77, I have a very useful child, as you will know by now, but at 54, he's not likely to be anyone's toy boy.

    Breakfast: Sausages and some yoghurt with pecan nuts in (ran out of eggs!)

    Lunch: Tried making some keto mug bread which was okay, and had that with a semi-Ploughmans; chicken breast, edam, babybel, cucumber, tomatoes, coleslaw, pickled shallots - dessert was a white chocolate and raspberry keto ball

    Dinner: Teriyaki style Pork steak with a salad, and a Grenade Carb Killa bar.

    Snack during the day was a Coconut Macadamia protein ball

    A chunk of cheese mid morning, then a 45 minute walk to a pub for a lunch of greek salad that was mostly tomatoes.
    Dinner was frittata and salad, followed by a bag of pork scratchings and 2 hours after that a bowl of ff greek with nuts and chocolate and cream

    Day itself was a roller coaster of frustration ( banks and IT) and pleasure (friends and pedicure)

    Meal 1: airfried chicken wings
    Meal 2: chunk of chorizo and 2 small h/b eggs
    Meal 3: h/m beef burger with a gloriously colourful salad of spinach, cherry toms, orange pepper, spiralized courgettes, olives, chilli sauerkraut, pumpkin seeds and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast. There were a few raspberries eaten at some point in the day and way too much 100% chocolate. I’m still trying to get through it to save any more accidents with Dennis.
    @LoriF hugs for the morning high fbg, it’s so frustrating but your food looks good so I hope you’ll see results soon.

    Sausages eggs tomato for breakfast.
    Toasted cheese and ham low carb sandwiches for lunch.
    Liver and bacon, green veggies for dinner.

    Today is / was change my Fentanyl patch day, my crook leg was starting to give me some aches and pains. Must be a different sort of pain than what I get in my colon as that was ok. It did not not take long for the new patch to kick in.

    Certainly beats paracetamol tablets. :D

    Sorry to hear of your tooth pain - it must be one of the worst kind of pains and, on top of the pain, you can't eat, so you have tummy pain as well. Hope it can be dealt with soon and you feel better.
