    Do you know for years now me and Jan only eat two meals a day. A big full English breakfast gets us at least eight hours without eating. The only change in that, is if we are out in the cold for a big part of the day, and then we take a flask of mushroom soup and one low carb bread sandwich between us. When I was eating cereals, toast and orange juice for breakfast I was hungry and scoffing cheese rolls within a couple of hours.

    That salad looks great Andy. If I see one more of Jans casseroles in the next month I will puke. That's the trouble with women, you say you like a particular meal and they take that as a cue for that's all you want to eat seven days a week. floggingdeadhorse

    Everything's cool with me and Jan, she reckons the first twenty years was the worst. It always makes me laugh, when I hear people whining about having to give up some crap food items, if they go low carb, as if that is some sort of major hardship. I say to them if you think that's tough, imagine being married to me. Another instant low carb convert rofl

    Jan asked me a couple of hours ago "what do fancy for dinner tonight" I said I really fancy a salad, like cold salmon or mackerel with all the trimmings, like apple and walnut Waldorf salad etc. So far so good. I then get, what am I going to do with all this swede mash, broccoli and cabbage.

    Why do they ask? Have you ever noticed, when a Woman asks you a question, your reply is a waste of time. FACT affraid

    I bought some oyster mushrooms which hadn't been available for a while and made a stirfry with cashew nuts, multicoloured peppers, garlic, chillies and chicken.

    I did find Toulouse sausages in the farm shop, bought in rather than made by the butcher, but had already decided on Gloucester Old Spot - these old varieties of pigs have far more fat, and flavour, than the modern breeds. Had some with the last of the brussels sprouts and some with the last of the purple sprouting broccoli - the weather has (temporarily) put paid to some of the crops

    Perhaps try the Toulouse sausages another time Chris?
    I know you like those Gloucester Old Spot ones ...

    Tonight we are having salmon, broccoli and cheesy leeks - sure tastes good.

    Our broccoli is not the purple sprouting kind ... it's green and it's come from Spain  Exclamation

    Yes I ended up with "ordinary" broccoli too, I just had half a tree with two succulent lamb chops and some sprigs of rosemary. I'll definitely try the Toulouse sausages one day soon but I have a few other things to munch through first.
