    But wouldn’t that mean some of the carbs from the spuds would mix in with the contents? A bit like hoping if you swim in the deep end of the pool you will avoid the water in the shallow end where someone did a pee?
    Sorry, mods. I think I am veering towards derailing.

    @Debandez , do you not have two single portion size dishes? One for your low carb mash, one for his spuds.

    It may I suppose so use two oven dishes splitting the filling between them and each having it's own topping or use a divider of some sort any way I will desist from derailing the thread as am on a warning sort of. :)

    Yes I've got a plan of action in mind ;-) the cottage pie was fab but next time it will be celeriac topping. My son's girlfriend has moved in so hubby decided to do potatoes moreso for her.

    4.2 on Libre @ 5.44 - bit of a flat track bully. It is Libre, summer, I'm gloriously isolated and lots of salad + avocado are available. I'm posting this Wednesday morning - posts appearing at odd times lately.

    5.6 I slept really soundly, back in my own bed last night, but it was oh so hard to wake up this morning. Coffee doing its trick.
    @Zgs how are you today?
