    I got mine from Tesco. I had it fried but have always found it too salty. During the war you ate what you were given or went without! I bought a tin recently but still find it too salty for me so won't be buying it again. I think most supermarkets would stock it. Hope she enjoys it again!

    Morning all. I'm having a no-carb day (if I can). I'm attempting to have airfried belly pork slices for midday and scrambled eggs for teatime . Not hungry so no bf. I've posted this so I will HAVE to do it! I'm fed up of high numbers. So no chocolate today:angelic: or should that be :nailbiting:!

    Tuesday 19 April bed 7 FBG 6 8. A much more stable BG day. Physio this morning and my legs badly need it.

    B. Just TAG and 1 M&S Wheaten cracker with whipped cream (enough to stall a morning BG rise but quick enough to make sure I got to Physio on time)

    L. A SLC sandwich with ox tongue and coleslaw

    D. 2 poached salmon fillets, 1/2 M&S best ever prawn cocktail, 1/2 avocado, whipped cheese, coleslaw, M&S chorizo crisps. Later, some Isey Skyr Baked Apple yoghurt.

    Wednesday 20 April - bed 7 5 FBG 6 6

    B. TAG and 2 slices of SLC toast with egg mayo

    L. Nothing was tackling a load of ironing that included King Size duvet sets I'd been delaying during my latest illness.

    D. M&S thick cut sirloin. I half it with Hubby, as it is very thick cut, and slice it. I prefer it a bit more pink but it is delicious. A load of veg - santini tomato, spinach, asparagus and mushrooms. 20220420_184654.jpg

    Most useful comment remembered from A level literature was teacher saying not to iron anything until you are ready to use it!

    @DJC3 re game question often buy different wild game when in season at local farm shop but the farmed grass fed venison is available all year from Waitrose so tend to buy the venison steaks and meatballs from there - plus often on offer. Your wild and game boxes sound tempting too.
    Mid am a few spoons of hm yoghurts
    Lunch two eggs scrambled in butter with one slice of lc toast followed by stewed rhubarb and hm yoghurts and four squares of 100% chocolate
    Mid pm lc coffee and walnut cake
    Dinner two lamb loin chops with cauliflower mash and glass of red wine followed by lc blondie .
    Will be away from home and this thread now for a week - hope to read others meals when can but won’t be recording my own food for a week. Planning though to stay low carb as much as possible.

    There was a lot of talk about Spam in the media about a year ago and kind of remembered qujite liking the salty taste so went and bought a tin in the supermarket (or rather, got Neil to get it for me). Never again. More salt than I would ever use now and that's just about all - no hint of ham or bacon flavour. I seem to remember my mother frying it, but can't remember enjoying it that way. I'm pretty sure we didn't have it often, my Dad was very anti what he called "erzatz meat" along wiht "erzatz coffee" - he'd had too much of it in the army during WW2.

    Another hug from me @shelley262 hope all is well next week and thanks for the Waitrose heads up about the venison steaks and meatballs.
    I have realised I’m snacking way too much and haven’t recorded my meals on Cronometer or carbs&cals like I used to do, things have got lax and I’m ignoring little extras like HC batons or the odd slice of cheese between meals. Time to take myself in hand.
    What I can remember today-
    B- Crusted cheese omelette with turmeric and ginger sauerkraut.
    L-Tuna mayo+ cheese in SLC roll. Choc chia pud
    D- chicken thighs (2) meant to be air fried but having talked to the lovely lady in the butchers this morning, and recommending an airfryer to her wholeheartedly, mine has broken! It’s 3 weeks past the 1 year parts guarantee and of course my old Lidl one (which I gave away to my daughter when I bought this big Tower one) is still going strong. Anyway I put them in the oven and they were fine. Nando’s sauce with them. Forgot to do any sides.

    Breakfast: my usual low carb coconut ‘porridge’ with strawberries washed down with a black coffee.
    Late morning: black coffee and an Atkins bar.
    Skipped lunch.
    Mid afternoon: black coffee and a carb killa bar.
    Dinner:Balti chicken curry with cauli rice followed by SF cherry jelly and cream.
    Finished my Easter chocolate today in between meals, so now I’ll have to blame my slightly higher than normal blood sugars on my shingles!

    Definitely the shingles!

    I had yesterdays cauliflower dish, microwaved.
    I planned to do microwaved today, and reheated in the oven tomorrow to compare, but microwaved tasted perfectly fine, so no need to have the oven use up expensive gas for 45 minutes if 3.5 minutes in the microwave does the job as well! :)

    We use king single sheets, they get folded straight off the clothes hoist, then put away in the cupboard as is.

    Very little ironing done now that I have retired, no need for ironed business shirts etc. :D

    Good excuse as any, my diet has changed a bit as well with extra carbs.

    Still inside of my upper limit of ~150 grams carbs though.

    Ah, finally someone who understands my problems translating very nice Dutch foods to English without making them sound stale! :hilarious:
    I usually opt for 'dried sausages' and 'mature cheese', which makes it at least sound like the dry and old is a deliberate feature of the food. :D
    And a free tip too: You can trust just about any sausage of any kind in the Netherlands, cold or fried, we don't really do carby fillers. So even if you don't know what's in them, just dig in! :hungry:

    Three bbq sausages, slice of middle bacon, two egg and cheese omelette, mushrooms, small portion / tin baked beans for breakfast.
    No smoko, just cordial / osmolax mix.
    Roast of the day (pork), veggies and gravy at the Brothers sports club bistro for lunch.
    Toasted cheese and ham sandwiches, small pot of pea and ham soup for supper at six.

    Some cubed up tasty cheddar cheese and green olives watching the last episodes of Bluestone 4 2 on Prime.

    Here's the link for baked beans I mentioned before,
