    Yesterday's 2nd meal: chicken wings just with lime juice and salt, roasted.

    Breakfast: bacon and eggs. Had to chop the bacon into small pieces - I've been finding that I can't bite or chew anything much because my gums are still sore.

    I have a lamb shank already braising for today's 2nd meal - if I cook it for long enough, it shouldn't need much chewing.

    Remember I've altered the crispy coating for the fish again. No Almond flour, just milled flax, sesame seeds, parmesan and five seed mix. Seasonings of course too.

    Monday 2 August - bed 4.8 FBG 4.3. No boys today but my legs are really quite bad. Physio tomorrow morning thank goodness.
    B. TAG and 2 slices of SLC toast with Philly.
    L. Nothing - tackled the final cupboard apart from the larder unit (which awaits the additional shelves). Didn't exactly help my back and legs.
    D. Still addicted to SLC hot dog. Hot dog plus the extra sausage, 1 hot dog roll with usual ketchup, mustard, soft and crispy onion. Another creme brulee with a few raspberries. I torched the inulin so much it caught fire. Easy to extinguish and it gave the best caramel crack yet!

    Tuesday 3 August bed 7.6 FBG 6.7. Still boy free. Physio first thing which helped the legs and hips but they tightened up again at night. Tends to happen when they've been bad.

    B. TAG and one slice of SLC toast with Philly.
    L. Sandwich with coronation chicken.
    D. Needed to use up prawns so a prawn salad with lettuce, tomato, 1/2 avocado, mozzarella, coleslaw. Yet another LC creme brulee with a few raspberries.

    Thanks for the earworm!
    I always thought it was the Gentle Duke of York, but I learned the song when my fluency of English was limited to 'yes', 'no' and counting from one to ten.
    In Dutch the song is about prins Maurits, but he climbed up and down the hills with ten times as many men as your Duke. I expect this has more to do with the rhythm of the song than with actual accurate history writing though.

    Not much news on the food front, same meal as yesterday, so I can't even hide my derailing with a nice description of my meal. :sorry:

    B: ff greek with seeds and cherries (English cherries and very good flavour)
    L: leftover fritatta and half an avocado
    D: Indian restaurant so tandoori lamb chops ( disappointingly dry) and a chicken dish I just picked the meat from. Glass of white.

    A quick dash to buy some flowers also produced a chocolate éclair each

    Hi All
    First have to say that steak breakfast was impressive @Riva_Roxaban sure you aren’t competing in Tokyo?
    Yesterday and today my usual breakfast of slice of Hilo toast and lots of tea.
    Lunch yesterday was piece of crustless broccoli & tomato quiche and big green salad with a teasp of Balsamic dressing. Supper was chunky cod fingers the remainder of the green salad, salad cream, I know! Lunch today will be scrambled eggs. Supper today will be baked salmon with Teriyaki sauce and tenderstem broccoli.
    Yesterday made some lemon muffins. Havent baked anything like that in a very long time. Halved the xylitol in the recipe and it was so nice to have one after lunch with a mug of tea.

    Possibly Richard, 3rd duke of York, (1411—1460) attempted to take the English throne but only helped start the Wars of the Roses (1455–85) and he was the father of two English kings, Edward IV and Richard III.

    Or more likely Prince Frederick, Duke of York and Albany (1763–1827) - not well thought of because he was not a good general and his actions were considered futile since he lost the battle with France - not quite fair because his opponent was Napoleon and at the time, nobody else could defeat N either.

    This was one of the few songs that would put Neil to sleep as a baby - marching up and down the room, patting his back in time to the tune.

    On theme - I had to take a correction dose this morning to push BG down from 13.5 to 11.1 before I had my breakfast. Breakfast was a kind of blackberry and apple fool which I made last night.

    2nd meal will be some more of the lamb shank casserole from yesterday.

    Black coffee all morning then a leftover pork chop with a slice of cheese melted on top for lunch. Followed it with 1/2 a SLC not cross bun.
    Dinner was a wonderfully fresh mackerel, fresh off the boat this morning. Stuffed with parsley, lemon, garlic, cumin and paprika. Baked, with some roast veg. Followed up with a lc cupcake a chopped strawberry and another dollop of the Alpro coconut yoghurt. It’s not getting any better, think I’ll Chuck it out.
    I go through baking phases too @PenguinMum . The lemon muffins sound good, is xylitol ok for cats? I know it’s poisonous for dogs. I don’t think You’ve made made your cheese scones for a while either, they always made my mouth water.
    I’ve been humming Grand Old Duke of York all day!

    An odd food day today as returning home so:
    B: small ff greek with seeds and 4 cherries
    Last dog walk. Was raining so she wasn't interested...but I needed my exercise. She mostly won!
    Mid afternoon: nut bars in car. 250 miles with only one quick stop for fuel. So glad controlling sugars improved my constant weeing, couldn't have done that in the old days.
    D: 90 second mug roll with cheese and a tablespoon coleslaw. 1 sq mint 100% chocolate with double cream.
    Visitors due this weekend, one vegetarian, one no nuts, one no eggs, 3 teenagers, and me low carb. Ideas on a postcard please

    Didn't go for groceries, didn't feel like cooking, so evening meal consisted of a nice salad with tomato, tuna, lots of onion and things like mayonnaise and jalapenos and such, and a slice of LC bread with butter and fancy French salami-like sausage slices.

    Ah, we're progressing from the Gentle Duke to Tom Waits. :)
    The both of you did find your way back home though, I hope!

    I prefer to eat the iron content in steak, than get iron drip fed into a vein at the hospital as it looks like rusty water coming out of the tap. :D

    I do not follow Australian sports people with their eating habits, there is enough bad behaviour with the Australian competitors with out watching them eat. :meh:

    How did I miss that part?! Must have been diverted by those dukes, princes and members walking their 10,000 dogs up and down hills in the rain I guess...
    @MrsA2 , I'd be happy to send you my ideas on a postcard, but I don't think the forum rules allow for asking your address, so I'm afraid you'll have to work it out yourself.
