    I loved the occasional violet cream and they were a favourite of my Mum. My absolute favourite was the walnut creams though. Now they'd probably taste hideous.

    It takes time. Morning BGs are usually the last to drop. We're all different but I found having something first thing brought the rather annoying dawn readings down pretty quickly. It's your liver basically dumping sugar into your system to get you up and running.

    There's a few recipes kicking about on vegan sites.

    This one has few ingredients and the author describes it as "fun".

    A bit like the cane toad then. Still, as least the rabbits aren't poisonous. My SIL said they had found cane toads as far south as the north of NSW.

    Thursday bed 7.6 FBG 7.3

    @DJC3 - oddly I like breakfast pancakes (the souffle ones on my CMT), monk fruit maple syrup and crispy smoked bacon. The bacon & pancakes I could do but I'm out of the monk fruit maple syrup currently.

    B. TAG and 2 slices of SLC toast with ox tongue and Dairylea.
    L. Nothing
    D. I too had pork ribs @Riva-Roxaban from the butcher but mine were raw. Soaked them in a mix of bourbon, hot sauce and herbs. They were massive. 3 ribs and nothing else. I did have a mini bar of the Lidl dark raspberry later.

    I have seen cats and dogs die after playing with cane toads, the vets can't do a lot for the animal most times.

    Any cane toad we see in the back yard gets a dose of salt on it, that kills them.

    Didn’t get a chance to post yesterday so a quick recap.
    B: keto pancakes ( egg, cottage cheese and a pinch of psyllium husk powder) with 1 bacon, 1 egg and fried mushrooms. I haven’t tried your soufflé pancakes @maglil55 , they look good. These ones are super quick and easy and I agree, very good with crispy bacon.
    L: M&S tapas style stuff while helping daughter move house. They have such a good range in their 3 for £7 offer now, I wish we had a store closer.
    D- got home much later than I like to eat so quicker thing was salad with everything in it. Sliced roast beef, h/b egg, avocado, olives, spinach, red pepper, chilli sauerkraut. And a spoonful of leftover h/m ranch dressing. Followed up with raspberries and cream
    Paul ordered Chinese but I wasn’t tempted in the slightest, it was all in that shiny grey sauce and looked quite unappetising to me.

    Strangely, there was no reaction to the bread that I ate - except that it tasted like soggy cardboard. So I guess I am not intolerant to gluten after all, and whatever was causing a problem, it wasn't wheat or even yeast. It was rubbish bread; I knew that at the time. It was just something to make breadcrumbs with for Em's meal for her Mum and Dad (crumbed with a load of parsley and some Aleppo chili to sprinkle over her egg mayonnaise). BG bounced up and down a bit afterwards - odd.

    Breakfast: bacon and egg.
    2nd meal: will be smoked haddock and some mushy green peas.

    Neil is a bit irritated at present - he seems to have fixed the problem with the Scenic's battery, but he doesn't know how he did it!

    Edited to add final paragraph

    I was about 4 or 5 weeks. Taste came back first but nasal area still causes problems. Least hint of a cold and my sense of smell goes do-lally. It's the phantom smells that are the worst. I still smell Condor sliced pipe tobacco! (My Dad smoked it hence why I know the smell). Last night I had to have a hot shower and a coat of Vicks before I went to bed as it was bothering me again! I'm OK today though.

    Breakfast was late and a very odd un-breakfasty thing / tin of salmon plus chilli sauerkraut in LoDough wrap. Not something I’ll rush to have again but it filled me up.
    Dinner was salad with everything which seems to be my favourite thing atm. 2 glasses of red to celebrate the weekend.
    @maglil55 Paul went into town again today and managed to pick up the last 2 of the wild shrimp things from Iceland!

    I lost my taste and smell with Covid, I tested positive on the 9th July after falling ill the day before. My taste and smell returned quite suddenly a couple of days ago.

    Edited for typo

    Breakfast: my usual low carb coconut ‘porridge’ with strawberries washed down with a black coffee.
    Late morning: black coffee and carb killa Jaffa bar.
    Skipped lunch.
    Mid afternoon: black coffee and coffee chia pudding.
    Dinner Chinese takeaway: crispy duck, 3 small pancakes, a smidge of sauce and veggies followed by SF orange jelly, cream and LC chocolate and ginger granola.
