    Tried for Omad today but failed. By 3pm I was ready to gnaw my leg off so had 2 slices roast beef, slice of Edam on top and a tsp almond butter spread on than and rolled up. Saw it on a lc fb group and have wanted to try it ever since.
    Dinner was DD keto cheeseburger casserole with spinach. Boy it’s rich! A bit too salty for my taste.
    @maglil55 I Popped into town today and stocked up on more of the wild red shrimp things from Iceland. Sorry to hear your stressful times aren’t over, but gladi the gall bladder issue is resolving.
    @Dr Snoddy I like the sound of your Moroccan avocado and Halloumi salad. I haven’t seen the new Bond yet, hopefully next week.

    Tomorrow I'll need to get up at 6:30, which is very much the middle of the night if you usually get up between 9:30 and 11. So I figured I'd best save the leftovers of yesterday's yummy oven dish for tomorrow so I don't have to think about cooking, and improvise today. :)

    Skipped doing groceries so not much choice in vegetables, despite always having a lot of them in stock for the guinea pigs. Having guinea pigs are brilliant when you regularly postpone shopping for 'not feeling like it' but you still feel you need to eat vegetables.
    There is no way I'd let my guinea pigs go without their veggies so there's always something in the house! :happy:

    Today the choice was between onions, carrots and more of the savoy cabbage.
    So I cooked some of the cabbage, fried an onion with garlic and some shrimp from the freezer, added it all together and added the sachets of flavouring from a pack of instant noodle soup. :)
    Will have a look tomorrow to try if my neighbour's turkeys will eat the noodles, my chickens don't want them.

    Why is it they insist to do diabetic eye checks at 8:15 in the morning? I mean, diabetes is not great fun at the best of times, but adding things like this doesn't make it more fun in any way.
    Very happy with a lovely neighbour (another one, not the one from the turkeys) who says she really doesn't mind driving me to hospital at 7:30!

    Where I get my eye tests done at OPSM it's always done around midday for the diabetic one for me. PITA!

    I must have missed the fact that you have a troublesome gall bladder on top of everything else. You really are having a hard time of it. Are you having any kind of treatment for that? Or is it just up to you to avoid the things that irritate it?

    As usual I was up early this morning and I felt hungry around 5 am, so I took my first insulin dose (60u of Humalog) and had some toast. Very naughty, but the operation dropped my BG down by 3+ points (11.9 to 8.5). Haven't eaten anything else yet, but have had water and tea. Planning some bacon and egg around lunch time and something veggie for later - quite a lot of courgette to use up.

    @maglil55, how do you do your hasselback aubergine? Do you remove the skin? (Hate aubergine skin.) I know you said you would put it on your Copy Me That page, but I can't get into it, so can't see your recipes.

    Was that your spell checker having its way, or were you really being severe when you had your fizz? Is it extra fierce bubbles when you are severe?

    Breakfast two boiled eggs and one and a half slices of LC bread
    Lunch handful of walnuts with small amount of Stilton and vintage cheddar followed by a few raspberries and yoghurt 0% fage
    Mid pm DGF brownie
    Dinner pork ribs with salads and glass of soda water with dash of dry white wine followed by DGF brownie
    I have been deliberately not buying nuts as get too tempted but bought a pack of walnuts to do youngest son’s coffee and walnut Birthday cake - made cake today as celebrating tomorrow hopefully, interestingly I’m not tempted by the cake because of the fact can eat the DGF ones and head off the high sugar temptation- but as for the nuts ......they may well appear next few days as the rest of the packet is in the tin!

    You've now put something into my head that will not annoy my tender stomach - boiled egg mashed with butter. That's breakfast sorted when I get back from the eye check up tomorrow.

    I've had gall stones for ages. Basically, so long as they don't bother me they are leaving it alone. I'm not 100% it was the gall bladder but the symptoms certainly fitted. I thought it was a goner thus time but it is settling.
    I'll put the Hassleback aubergine on later today but, No, it isn't peeled.

    Made me laugh a lot, I didn’t spot it when J read @SlimLizzy ‘s post. I will always think of drinking champagne severely now.

    Managed to keep eating window to 18:6 today
    1st meal was leftover bacon cheeseburger casserole from yesterday. Eaten cold straight out of the fridge and I preferred it that way surprisingly.
    2nd meal: https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/keto-curry-chicken-coconut-lime which was lovely but I’ve never really got the hang of lemongrass, it stayed hard and crunchy. Good for fibre I suppose. Followed with DGF pumpkin pie spiced latte cake, with blueberries and cream. Only one of these left now and I’ve managed not to buy a bottle of rum to try @shelley262 ‘s suggested addition. Btw I agree about the moreishness of nuts - I try not to buy them either but don’t always succeed.

    OK Hasselback Aubergine (Thanks to Tesco - minor amendment by me!). The carbs come from the passata (unless you can get one that's sugar free. I make my own (which is the change I made in the notes on my CMT.

    https://www.copymethat.com/r/t5LP6szst/hasselback-aubergine-parmigiana/ 20211005_185913.jpg


    Here's the notes

    The 10g carb content is coming from the bought passata. Making your own will bring the carb count down. Basic sauce is just chopoed tomatoes and I cook them gently with a little veggie stock and a tablespoon of red wine vinegar. Once it looks like a sauce puree (when cooled) with a tablespoon of olive oil and about 1/2 cup of the liquid from cooking. Add tsp salt, a grind of black pepper, 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes and 1 tsp each of onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, parsley, dried basil whizz again. If it is bitter add about a tsp of Monk Fruit and taste again.


    Steps

    Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Cut lengthways slits into the aubergines about 1cm apart, leaving the stalk attached and taking care not to cut right down to the bottom (as this will hold the tomatoes and mozzarella in place).

    For the herb oil, blitz the garlic and most of the basil in a small food processor. Season, add the oil and whizz again to a smooth paste. Using a pastry brush, brush 1 tbsp of the herb oil all over and between the cuts in the aubergines. Reserve the remaining herb oil for later.

    Pour the passata into a large roasting tin or ovenproof dish and season. Arrange the tomato slices in single rows in the aubergine pockets, nestle the aubergines into the passata, then bake for 40 mins.

    Remove from the oven and increase the temperature to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Carefully push the mozzarella slices into the aubergine pockets next to the tomatoes, using a butter knife to help. Return to the oven and bake for a further 20 mins until the aubergine is tender.

    Meanwhile, whisk together the mustard, vinegar and 2 tbsp oil. Season and toss with the leaves.

    Drizzle the reserved herb oil over the aubergines, scatter with the remaining basil leaves and cut the aubergines in half lengthways, serving half per person with some sauce and salad on the side.

    All went according to plan :)
    Didn't oversleep, neighbour brought me, got the full menu for the eye test. First the mysterious machine which shows a cute little house going in and out of focus, then the machine with the puffs of air blowing in your eyes, then the machine the specialist nurse uses to look at the outside of your eyes and the eye chart (scored 120 on that one so I must be seeing really well, no glasses needed, despite my shouting some random letters at the smallest line :happy:), then the dreaded eye drops and the eye doctor waving his light in my eyes to pronounce all is well.

    Walked to my friend's house, had a coffee, and off we went to the swimming pool.
    He brought me home after swimming and we had more coffee, both my friend and my neighbour who came by to return my dogs.
    This morning I thought it would be more fun for them to join her than to stay home alone, so I took them with me.
    Apparently the've had lots of adventures, visiting a ship and playing with the kids, very good decision to just inform my neighbour she was going to take my dogs with her today! :hilarious:

    As expected, I was knackered after all this, so very happy with my leftovers reheated in the microwave!
