    This morning I had:
    B: Low carb bread toasted with butter - mmmmm!
    Later today I intend to have:
    L: Hunter's Chicken (and I'm testing that) probably with green dwarf beans, cos I like those.
    D: Veggie Deluxe Bake (My own recipe) & has so much veg in it that I don't need anything more.

    @FranOnTheEdge love, you do know that there is a Search function on the forum, don't you?

    It is much quicker to use that, or just go straight to Google, than write a post and wait for an answer.

    Sounds lovely! How do you cook your pork belly? I've eaten it in restaurants but never tackled cooking it myself...

    I don't know about anyone else but I blast pork belly as hot as I can for 45 mins to get the crackling off to a good start, then turn the oven down low, about 150c, for a good 2 - 3 hours until done.

    Whoa, just had an interesting experimental dinner (mainly because I couldn't be bothered to cook properly). Mini wholemeal seeded baguette, 1 half with duck and orange pate and the other with cold chicken and mayo. BS before 5.7, 2 hours after 10.7!! Have never tested in double figures before:eek:

    Hello everyone,

    Yesterday:
    B/L: fry-up
    D: stir fry with strips of pork marinated in soy/mirin/hoisin/sesame oil/chili flakes with frozen wok mix, carrot, red pepper and broccoli. I pre-steamed the frozen wok mix which meant I didn't get a waterlogged wok. I also steamed the carrot and broccoli.

    Also tried out @ewelina's bounty truffles - very nice! I didn't respect the recipe and used 85% chocolate which I found too bitter. My own fault of course ;-)

    Saturday evening was a dinner party that had been planned for a few weeks. I was a bit tired so did chicken thighs, Yorkshire pud (pretend you didn't read that), veg (medley of green beans [the ones from Lidl are excellent], sugarsnap peas, red pepper, carrot and broccoli), supermarket pepper sauce, followed by coffee panna cotta with sugar reduced by half... Not great but compared to previous dinner parties pretty good going. The apéro was a carb-free zone though (sliced saucisson sec, those little cheesy cube things I mentioned before, and olives).
