    Morning All
    6.3 yesterday and flatlined at 6 all day inc LC eating. This morning 7.1 after (too much) bbq meat and salad. This has happened to me before and usually last a few days so very careful management required. @ianpspurs well done on the Yorkie but not on throwing red wine away ;)

    Red wine will end up in No1 son when life opens up. He lives 5 mins walk away. Bit cold for BBQs IMHO. I assume you will be outraged at potentially binning 2 ribs of beef from the joint!
    Yorkie:
    75 gms keto flour
    5 liquid egg whites
    300 mls almond milk
    3 eggs
    Cooked in the beef fat.
    I wouldn't worry about me not having enough wine. Another 19 bottles found Saturday.

    Morning all, 5.6 for me and no obvious ill effect from yesterday’s vaccine, red wine or beef.

    Is everyone having a cook-in with beef and Malbec?
    I am confused about the ingredients @ianpspurs, there's no meat
    I've just been reading through some of the postings and rather liked @mojo37 's comment.
    Madame is at the same stinky level.

    There was a very large joint - ribs of beef (2 still left) - but red meat didn't spoil the veggies for me;). Ended up with Tempranillo as the Malbec is too good to pour away (I checked Laithwaites website as it was a present). Julie and 91 yo MIL had a different bottle.

    Thanks for that so all’s well that ends well! The meat was cooked by No 1 son on bbq but was hastily transferred to the warming drawer and consumed indoors. No rules broken No 1 son repatriated with us due to new job. I have been known to freeze leftover red wine (very) occasionally to use in other dishes.

    5.8 this morning. Indulged in Pork and veg yesterday for lunch so a lot more carbs and cals although I only had a keto shake for supper so hoped it might have evened itself out. Back on the wagon today, although there is still half a pork joint with crackling in the fridge I'm sure its calling my name.

    Hello all,

    Been a bit busy with work and pulled a couple of all-nighters to get the last of it done. It feels really good not to have to look at this mountain of paper waiting to get done. Yeah!

    Fbg on Sunday 5.2 and yesterday 4.8.
