    Me too. Love it. Don’t think I thanked @AndBreathe for posting it. I did see a post previously about putting swede whole in microwave but next time I buy one I am going to give it a go and maybe sing along! @Riva_Roxaban I don’t think I could eat a fish as pretty as that polka dot one or as scary as the prehistorice one!
    today had usual brekkie of lc toast and lots of tea.
    Lunch was two slices ham, small spoon coleslaw and small but crustless quiche.
    Supper will be chunky fish fingers since its Firsday (!) with either asparagus or green beans or both.
    @Annb I hope you are feeling better and I wondered if the walking aid might be at the wrong height for you.

    I am going to adjust the height and see if that helps my shoulder. It does seem though that I have to lean forward to use the frame and that makes me feel unbalanced (physically, that is, mentally is another issue). The frame is adjustable by about 6".

    Fingers crossed for you. You don’t need to replace one problem with another!

    Oh, don't worry, you ARE funny and your post made me laugh out loud!
    But it also made me wonder about the intricacies of your language, and I wasn't disappointed by the replies I got!

    It does "sing", although I doubt swede choral groups are popular. :hilarious:

    You go for it (on the singing front), but I doubt the family will care to join in. They're more likely to enquire if you're in pain.

    It is a clever way to cook swede, but be careful when you come to deal with it afterwards. Without wanting to state the obvious, it is very hot indeed, so your hands will need protection.

    @PenguinMum I’ll join in the swede chorus with you, it won’t be tuneful but it’ll be joyful! BTW my steak was from the night before, another steak bar called Miller&Carter. It’s a chain so there are a few around, they were very accommodating and the steak was gorgeous.
    Today I had about a gallon of black coffee in the morning.
    Lunch - Romaine lettuce leaves spread with cream cheese and topped with chicken and sauerkraut. Very messy.
    Dinner - Roast lamb, roast pepper and courgettes and some Edelman’s beans. 4 squares Montezuma’s peanut butter Absolute black.

    3rd day of holibobs so just a dinner pic. Spanish chicken with mozzarella and a side salad and one new potato. Started eating before I remembered to take the photo, so excuse the incomplete chicken and new potato!

    Breakfast: a single tablespoon of greek full fat yogurt, as I was late getting to a meeting.
    Mid morning: 2cups black decaff coffee
    Skipped lunch
    Dinner: not much in fridge, so improvised. Portobello mushrooms, grilled with cheese, topped with fried egg. Beetroot juice, (supposed to be good for reducing blood pressure).

    Nope, put the weight in kilos same as I do.

    I will not convert metric into a outdated measuring system., it's the best thing happened to Australia converting from the £ to $ in 1965, then everything else in the 1970's.

    I like the idea of a big mushroom topped with cheese and a fried egg, I’d never thought of doing that but I bet it was good.

    OK, in that case I bought .5 kilo's of asparagus yesterday. Glad I didn't buy 450 grams or things would get even more confusing! :hilarious:
    I ate 4 yesterday and 6 today which leaves me with the rather sad amount of 2 asparagus for tomorrow so I'll have to think of something to go with them, before this whole post turns in one of those horrible math word problems.

    Today I had them the same way as yesterday with a little more salad and less but not fewer eggs (still at the math I fear). Still had 2 eggs but this time it was 1 turkey egg and one very small chicken egg.

    Ah well - I guess palm heart pasta is a no-no for me. The remainder will go into the bin today. Pity because it has some rather tasty beef ragout with it. But I don't want another evening and night like the last one. Thinking about today's food, but daren't actually have anything yet.

    Just had breakfast because I forgot what I was doing and took my basal AND bolus insulin doses, which meant I had to have breakfast. That was bacon and eggs. Luckily, my digestion seems to have settled down sufficiently to come to no harm with the early meal.

    I have some hot smoked salmon in the fridge, so that will be the 2nd meal with some cole slaw and maybe some tomato salad - probably around 4 or 5 pm. May have a slice of wholemeal bread with it, but I have to make it first.
