    MrB's SV Grand Marnier-likeeee is fabulous, but does have sugar, so little sips only for me. On small quantities, we're experimenting with Glycerine to recreate the correct consistency. That bit is a work in progress.

    Thank goodness we also have quite a small a small bath for all this jiggery-pokery.

    No Lidl nearby. I only discovered I liked gin recently. Always thought it had a smell of cat pee. As I am fasting much of the time this week I will refrain. Putting all thoughts of alcohol out of my mind.

    Happy anni @ianpspurs and Mrs P! Sorry, better late than never.
    Breakfast: my usual low carb coconut ‘porridge’ with strawberries and cream washed down with a black coffee.
    Lunch: DD keto pancake with bacon and SF maple syrup followed by Greek yoghurt with raspberries and blueberries.
    Mid afternoon: raspberry chia pudding and a black coffee.
    Dinner at local Hungry Horse: chicken skewers on a bed of stir fried peppers and red onion with a side salad and coleslaw, dessert at home, SF jelly, cream and LC chocolate granola.

    @Rachox
    The ‘dessert at home’ option comes in very useful sometimes, doesn’t it? :D

    Morning all. Didn’t get to post yesterday - crazy working week finally caught up with me and I collapsed into bed at 6.30pm, having struggled to stay awake while dinner cooked!

    @Brunneria your whole menu for yesterday sounds fab. Think I’m going to start experimenting with making pate. Do you need a full on food processor or would my hand blender/mini chopper suffice?

    @maglil55 great idea to make sweet things you don’t like!

    @LittleGreyCat is bullet resistant coffee a ‘lightweight’ version of bullet proof coffee?

    @DJC3 your suggestion of buying more jumpers obviously lodged itself in my brain as I arrived home with one in my bag.

    Yesterday’s menu was lunch at Five Guys post walking football. Cheeseburger with mayonnaise. Going bunless there is normal, but lack of toppings clearly isn’t - loud exclamation: plain?!

    Dinner was beef short rib.

    :D

    A hand blender would be fine!

    Making pate is the easiest thing in the world. All you need is seasoned meat and fat puréed together (easiest when warm) that sets solid when chilled.

    If you have a look at any pate recipe you will see what I mean. Mind you, come to think of it, I don’t think I have ever followed a recipe... I’ve used various combinations of chicken, lamb or beef liver, with either cream cheese, butter or marrow fat, but lard or beef dripping would work too. Bacon works nicely too.

    When I made this latest batch I just put the marrowfat, seasonings (garlic, onion, Worcestershire, salt, pepper and herbs) and liver in a pan and ‘sweated’ the liver til cooked. Blended it and put in little pots ready to freeze in portions. I calculated the proportions to get my f: p macros.

    Fish pates are even easier.
    Lob some skinless smoked mackerel or smoked salmon into blender with lemon juice, salt, pepper, horseradish and cream cheese, blend, eat.
    Less than 2 mins to make. And none of the silly starches and gums and gels used in shop bought ones.

    Nope. I believe some wag opined that should one fail to plan one may as well plan to fail. A more salty version exists.

    Not as last minute as last year. Plans went askew due to family crisis. Last minute order from butcher and all that was left a week before the big day was a giant goose. Further plans went even more askew, after a bigger family crisis, and the beast of a bird was squashed into the freezer. We remembered to defrost it for Easter. I am torn between accepting invitation elsewhere for Christmas dinner, or hiding this time.

    Our butcher doesn't take festive orders until "the beginning of November". I wasn't enquiring, it was another customer.

    If there is a Mrs Butcher he takes orders all day, every day:angelic: (He may feel free to disregard them but he will certainly take orders)
