    I remember the butterscotch tart we used to get as a pudding at primary school. I am sure it started off my sweet tooth !

    Treacle sponge pudding and custard . . . but that's mostly because of the man I shared it with (sigh).

    After the previous thread I have to admit that where live - 5 miles from the German border, 7 miles from the French border and 10 miles from the Belgian border - we are close to some of the best restaurants in Europe. And we do eat out regularly. But there are still many of the things I was brought up with that make my mouth water when I think of them (cabbage, sprouts and spring greens notwithstanding). Thick slices of buttered toast with lots of butter, done in front of an open coal fire; my mother's apple pie with custard; fish and chips wrapped in newspaper; Melton Mowbray pork pies; Eccles cakes; homemade trifle; Cornish pasties; jelly and blancmange with evaporated milk; oh goodness, I have to stop here, I'm drooling all over the keyboard and I'm afraid I'll electrocute myself.

    Best food memories....

    When I was little, my Mum's home made fish n' chips watched in front on the TV watching the wrestling on a Sat evening......We rarely ate out,as it was too expensive when I was young, but I do remember having tea in a cafe somewhere in the Edinburgh area......sausage, steak and gravy pie and to this day I still remember how delicious it was.
    Summer ball at a Sergeants Mess in Germany....so many good things I couldn't possibly mention them all, but the spicy prawns were especially amazing from the fish bar....

    Well senor NCOs always have the best grub/cooks. When I was on detachment (in my student days) the grub was always better in my mates (NCO) mess than ours (Officers)

    Clear and strong memories of both my mother's and grandmother's creme caramels
    plus their lump free creamy custard .
    Also their own homemade rice puddings and egg custards
    NEVER ate the pastry though - just scooped out the egg custard !
    Grandma and mum were big believers in making as much as possible homemade
    from scratch .

    Yep, good to remember "activity" can lower bloods and make insulin more efficient.

    "Activity" also burns up calories - every time you fancy a piece of chocolate cake, reach for your man instead!

    Goodness - I hope this is an "adults only" thread !

    Why are my smilies always going back to the beginning of this post??

    getting the diabetes under control was easy in comparisson to getting them smileys down to an acceptable level

    this is just an opinion im not a smiley doctor or dsn (diabetic smiley nurse)

    Anyone had to have some carb after cough 'activity' having gone too low and shaky ?
    Bowl of cornflakes I confess for me or a few crackers with jam !
    Depending on BS reading of course :)
