    Massive congratulations @Estragon , what a guy. (Who the one with the spear? Yep, assegai:angelic:) Your post puts things into perspective somewhat. Tee 2 - after 456789000 ish attempts to draw enough blood reckons 6.2. Enough reasons to doubt that and huge variations in Stabbo's readings, within seconds, yesterday but I'll go with that - suits my scepticism. I'm with the Emeister in finding Elsie unattractive about 80-90% of the time but the good days are good. I've become too complacent being in the place he is celebrating. Thanks Bud.

    5.6 this morning, which surprised me because I cooked a cottage pie for my daughter and myself being as it's turned chilly out. I used normal flour to thicken as I didn't have anything else, and of course there was tomato puree in there, so I'm not sure if it is okay to use? I made the mash with steamed cauliflower, adding lots of butter and cream cheese to that. It tasted so good that I had more than I thought wise, and certainly expected to see a higher number this morning!!!

    If the mantra is eat to your meter then that recipe is worth a few repeats to see what happens. Lord knows its hard enough to make Elsie vaguely lovable for many.

    You were doing so well up to that point. Yummy? Dear Lord, it is food (Elsie's at that); just about functional, vaguely agreeable or downright disgusting covers it all - apart from the Swoon Sisters recipes and salmon salad:angelic:
