    Dinner turned out to be slow braised pigs cheeks with a mountain of cabbage (as predicted) and by God was it good!:). Bourbon has killed my sore throat as well, shall sleep tonight;).

    Love the cod in chorizo & tom sauce, you can use an almost identical sauce (add diced peppers and chilli to taste) to poach eggs in ...........beautiful!

    L: coyo
    D: chicken soup

    Thur:
    B: coffeencream
    L: salad provided by my beloved, from the Morrison's salad bar. Didn't really want it, so toyed with it til he wandered off, then ditched the rest in the bottom of the bin. Shhhh!

    Today:
    B: coffeencream
    L: 1x butchers sausage

    Update @Brunneria and @AndBreathe : You were right, ladies; it's a gorgeous cake - deliciously moist and crumbly. I added a topping using 40g Chocologic sugar-free chocolate melted with 10g butter (mainly because my oven was running a little hot and the top looked a bit dark), and it works out at 220cals and 4.6g carbs per slice. Scrumptious! Thank you...
    (I'll bet it would be yummy with some chopped black cherries in it, too... Or maybe leave out the chocolate and substitute orange or lemon zest and a 'drizzle' topping made from orange or lemon juice and stevia...)

    Yes! All my fillings sink too.
    And my top goes dark brown.
    Lol.

    The cherries would be gorgeous. And boozy drizzling would work like a charm...

    B/L: Bacon, 2 sausages, plum tomatoes and fried egg (brunch at the pub with my daughter and the Tiny Terrorists)
    D: Salmon with pak choi & mascarpone, broccoli, cauliflower, courgettes
    S: Raspberries & cream
    Carbs: 43.7
    Cals: Let's talk about something else... (The mascarpone was higher in cals than I realised. Should have checked that before I scoffed it! :()
    Oh well, tomorrow's another day.
    (I've put the recipe for the salmon on the Low Carbs Recipes forum, in case anyone wants to risk it - it was very good and only 3.6g carbs per serving, but it is quite high in calories...)

    So tonight I was longing for the Friday night Indian - like the pre diagnosis days. So from COOK we bought a Red Thai curry - 10g of carbs, and I went for Jasmine rice too. 7.7 registered 1 hour afterwards, 2 hours afterwards back to 5.8 - so is that OK for me? Or the spike too much? Happy with the curry most of the time but occasionally I like the rice

    Pickled lambs tongues? Is that how the phrase "Eeeeeewwwe" originated? :joyful:
    The only eyes I'm going to be enjoying are the ones twinkling in people's faces.
    Love your sense of humour, @Galja - gonna take a rain check on the recipes! x
