    Eggs are little fairies in a shell :-)
    Love 'em ! So versatile ! I love making scrambled eggs and I think they're a very rare food that actually tastes better from a microwave !

    .........not an egg in sight at dinner tonight Smile

    We enjoyed some chicken, cooked with leeks, mushrooms, a little onion and lovely buttery mashed swede. Delicious.

    All the best Jan

    Whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner our menu plan - do I have one - I sometimes wonder  lol! is definitely low carb, high fat, moderate protein. We've lived this lifestyle for over six years now.

    Tonights dinner features chicken, mixed with a little ham, some leeks ... a shake of mixed herbs and seasoning served with cabbage and buttery mashed swede. Never fails to taste great and keeps Edde's blood sugar numbers non diabetic. Which is just brilliant sunny

    What's cooking in your oven tonight ?

    All the best Jan

    I love spicy food but jalapeños are just a bit extreme for me ! And what is halloumi ? Is that greek sort of rice ? The rest sounds lovely !

    halloumi is a Cypriot cheese. Comes in a block that you slice and then fry till is goes gooey in middle and crispy on outside. It is quite salty tasting so can take strong flavours like the pepper sauce and jalapeños.

    i have become very fond of a kind of bubble, cauliflower and cabbage mashed up fried in olive oil, 200g of cream cheese, 200g of butter 2oz grated cheese added then fry until it starts to brown, i had it tonight with a lamb steak and mushrooms, it seems to go with anything though, well maybe not yogurt but most things


    edit: although kinda similar to cauliflower mash it has a very different flavour

    yes fage is awesome hehe, sometimes when theyve sold out of full fat fage i try others but ive never found i like as much Smile i have recently dropped the milled flax seed sprinkled, mainly because ive been too busy at work and havent been to holland and barret, well i got some the other day i was in town buying some new trainers (blood stained the old ones lol) and bought some, its amazing how some flax seed sprinkled (maximun tablespoon) over yogurt stops you being hungry, ive been starving at 10am recently, i eat my yogurt at 6am but since getting the flax i dont even think about food till midday, its shocking the difference it makes, it was an accidental experiment

    Tonight's gourmet meal was .......

    Chicken Breast with Skin on + a handful of mushrooms, cabbage, and mashed swede.

    It was quite interesting because while buying the chicken the man standing next to me in the check out said " I don't like my chicken with skin on" ............ I tried to put him right (very politely) saying you couldn't beat it cooked with a little butter when you brown and crisp the skin.

    I just love it served that way.  sunny

    I should just add - whilst out shopping it was so busy the check out queue was so friendly, we were all talking with each other. When I eventually made it to the till the operator apologised stating it was always like this at the end of the month 'people had been paid and they were stocking up' ......could be true, many families do this.

    Now what did you eat for dinner tonight?

    All the best Jan

    Last night was a bowl of homemade ham broth with the diced ham in bottom of bowl. Worked it out to be under20g carbs for a big bowl and it is very filling with red lentils, turnip, leeks and carrots. Doesn't seem to spike me much which is great as it is a firm winter favourite as our house very cold.
    Dinner tonight is roast chicken, roast turnip ( and souds for them what can have them) , cauli with creme Fraiche cheese sauce, peas and carrots and bit of gravy. Also made a low carb almond topped crumble with scavenged blackberries so may have a small portion of that with some Greek yogurt as well.

    Thanks- it is lovely- sort of like a summer fruit pudding without all the bread - quite sharp as I don;t sweeten the fruit I use, but squeeze lemon juice on it instead- just use a pinch of sweetener with the almond flour and butter and then I sprinkle 1tsp brown sugar over whole thing just to get that caramelised thing going on. Today I added some desiccated coconut to the topping but don't tell Mr E as he isn't keen on coconut.

    That sounds like my sort of pudding Smile

    I think it's been a good year for blackberries, and you can't beat freshly picked ones .....from your garden or the lanes and bushes around the UK.

    I made a sort of corned beef hash, with a few fried onions, pepper, mushrooms, 1/2 tin corned beef cubed, and riced cauliflower, all fried up with a little tomato sauce, and a bit of worcester sauce. Yummy!
