    A wee bit behind. Wednesday 27 April bed 6.9 FBG 7.6.

    Been a bit busy. Youngest grandson was really upset this morning and would not go into school for the morning. I ended up teaching him all day. His hay-fever was quite bad but, despite this, he really focused and I stretched him by doing some Math and comprehension ahead of his level. He's very bright.

    B. TAG and 2 M&S crackers with whipped cheese.

    L. Nothing.

    D. A kind of shepherd's pie. I did add some cannellini beans which did spike my BGs. Cauli mash topping with Cheddar cheese on top.
    Yet another HC dark fix chocolate.

    Thursday 28 April bed 7.2 FBG 7.6

    Got youngest back to school this morning. He was highly delighted that I gave him a certificate for completing 20 worksheets and a math tutorial with me this week. He informs me he doesn't want to go to school because I'm a better teacher and there are no mean boys. He was delighted though to hand over a very large folder with all his work to his teacher.

    B. TAG and 2 slices of SLC toast with coronation chicken which needed used.

    L. Nothing

    D. After jujitsu (eldest grandson got his first stripe on his belt) 3 M&S GF sausages, 1 GF Black pudding, fried egg, santini tomatoesvand 4 of Hubby's chips.
    4 strawberries, 8 raspberries and a dash of cream

    Not a difficult recipe at all!
    Just chop up the components of the recipe and rewrite it in your own words, as a step by step instruction. :)

    The main thing is to use peppers, cream, tomato paste and garlic.
    Putting the peppers in the oven until blackened makes them easy to peel and very tasty, the same goes for the garlic.

    Today was going to be the pepper soup again, but I'm going sailing tomorrow with a friend and her mum, and I thought the soup would be a good thing to bring with me to share.
    So I had a quick meal of spicy green beans with garlic and sambal, and a burger on a bed of sautéed leek with cheese and black pepper.

    I pretty much agree with @Annb on the saga of tea, supper, lunch, dinner etc.
    In our household breakfast is always breakfast except when it gets to 11ish and it becomes brunch. Lunch is something that happens occasionally. Then, of course, there used to be the treat of afternoon tea which now would have to be specially made for diabetics. Oddly, we refer to the evening meal as tea (Monday to Saturday) but dinner on a Sunday. It is also dinner when we go out for an evening meal and at Chistmas time!

    Lots of food going on during my time away. Lots and lots of it!

    Today was omelette and bacon for brekkie, followed by Hotel Chocolat 85% hot chocolate and whip. Dinner was at a Brazilian bbq place with endless meat. My favourite, Picanha is pictured :D yum!

    Last day of our holiday today. Frightened to get home to the scales after 10 days of 3 catered meals a day
    B: yoghurt with seeds, then smoked salmon, herring and mackerel
    L: meatballs (but arrived coated in breadcrumbs and fried), cheese and too many if hubbys nacho chips/crisps
    Mid afternoon, most of a slice of cake. Bg shot up and stayed there until
    D: champagne, pate, beef, veg, cheese. Far too much wine (it's been included with every lunch and dinner and they kept topping it up when I wasn't looking!)

    Have walked a minimum ov 11000 steps most days, 18000 twice

    Sort of looking forward to home tomorrow but Belgium and the Netherlands tour has been very interesting, if cold in parts

    Friday bed 7 7 FBG 8

    B. TAG and a single M&S cracker with whipped cheese

    L. 200mls coconut milk

    D. Lettuce "boats" filled with tuna, sweetcorn and mayo and a salad of 1/2 avocado, santini tomatoes, cheese and walnuts.
    1 more HC dark fix.

    Youngest had been pondering about the piece of comprehension I did with him. It was about a boy who woke up, not in his bed, but on a strange blue planet. After much thought I was told "Nana, two things Either Billy is dreaming or he is totally insane." The mind of an 8 year old. 20220429_183934.jpg

    Morning all. Lovely sunny day but could be very cold, haven't ventured out yet. I was fairly good yesterday and I've lost some weight!! Today is going to be a carnivore day. I have belly pork slices and chicken thighs, plus bacon. So we will see what happens. I'm also going to do some more gardening as I slept better. I've also bought an Ionizer for my bedroom. Could be psychological, but I feel it helps too.

    Only tea so far today but I will shortly have the remainder of the fish dish I made for my 2nd meal yesterday - onion, red pepper, green pepper, tomato, green beans, all fried together in butter, then chunks of fish steamed on top. Just a sprinkling of sea salt over it to season. It was actually very good and I was tempted to eat the lot, but reigned myself in.

    2nd meal will be some stuffed cabbage leaves - haven't found the stuffing mixture yet but it will involve some crowdie and some cream and some of my pickled vegetables.

    I'm about to be off for a day of sailing, food will be a surprise because we'll all bring something. :)
    I'll bring pepper soup, boiled eggs with a bought smoked fish/mayo thing for dipping, some cherry tomatoes, chocolaty nut squares and coffee and tea. And a low carb sandwich for myself, and a juicy pear to nudge my bg up a bit if needed, looks like it's going to be one of those days where I tend to drop.

    I'll let you know how it went tonight!

    Hope you have fun today Antje. Anyone out on the sea around here is going to get very wet - only a bit breezy but raining hard.

    Evening all. Mini holiday continues. Skipped the hotel brekkie this morning in favour of some relaxation and a later start.

    Brunch at a little cafe at one of my favourite West Midlands spots, the Red House Glass Cone. Bacon and eggs.

    Dinner was a beef gym box with onions from German Doner Kebab, followed by dessert at Hotel Chocolat. 85% hot chocolate with whip. Made even better as it was on the house.

    We had a wonderful day!
    (More pictures on the Parallel thread, as they're not about food: https://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/th...en-parallel-chat.177870/page-106#post-2509533)

    My friend doesn't eat meat (but she does eat fish), so everything we brought was vegetarian and low carb, except for a little bread my friend brought, and my pear and sweets for hypo treatment. I haven't needed either. :)

    You already know what I brought, my friend brought garlic olives, oven baked celeriac slices with cheese, slices of cucumber and a very tasty aubergine based spread.

    Tasty enough to ask the recipe. Ridiculously easy and very good, so here it is:
    Cook an aubergine in the oven until soft and chop.
    Add Greek yoghurt.
    Add lots of garlic.
    Add salt and pepper.
    Use stick blender or other kitchen aid of choice to make a dip.
    I had the dip with cucumber and tomato, my friend used the bread.

    Later in the afternoon we had the soup and the chocolate squares.
    I also completely nailed this diabetes thing! :D
    Much easier when the only available food to avoid is bread, and there are lots of other tasty choices available!
