    You might be on to something there! Didn’t really feel hungry yesterday while out and about, but late evening and all today body was screaming for food!

    Your family gathering sounds great.

    Hi @PenguinMum
    Here is link to the cHoc cake
    https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=nigella's+chocolate+olive+oil+cake&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-gb&client=safari
    Ps ignore the or flour! It’s def a ground almond one for the low carb version! We work it out at under 2g of carbs per slice and it’s yummy.
    It’s Nigella but I and others adapt it by replacing sugar. I use erythritol in same weight as the sugar and I also separate the egg yolks and whites - use the yolks where it says add eggs but whip egg whites to soft peaks and then fold whites in at end. When not a celebration I makein two loaf tins so can freeze one it’s rich so you don’t need a huge bit to get the choc and cake hit! All family like this one and it makes a great celebration cake topped with whipped cream and berries! Ours has already gone! Shows how popular it is with family - promise I didn’t eat the whole birthday cake!

    good evening all :)

    was 4.3 this morning

    was up and out early today, we had to take the car in first thing for it's MOT but since it is mr. gee's birthday today we went off for the day, enjoyed a nice day out with a tasty LC lunch then went to see mum and took her some cake :)

    A good day out, lovely weather and thankfully the car passed it's MOT after 1 minor issue was sorted ;)

    ......Its still very warm here, just gone first light and I find myself awake. My computer is downstairs in a separate building to were I sleep, on the way here I met a rather curious, bushy tailed young fox, female I think. She doesn't stay long nor does the tabby cat who I haven't seen before. The one legged gull on the roof, his mate and their chick are more than happy to stop and stare. It makes me feel like its a good start to another day. 5.5 this morning....Enjoy your day if you possibly can...

    Lovely and quiet here too, which is especially welcome as there is a major problem with anti social behaviour in the park opposite my block in the evenings during the summer. Major campaign under way with my neighbours involving the local MP. Meanwhile I’m fantasising about buying an extremely large and powerful hose that could be targeted appropriately from the safety of an upper window!
