    There is only three things I check our fridge for. Plenty of dry white wine, olives and blue cheese, preferably Roquefort. What more does a man need in the way of sustenance? maybe a bottle of Jim Beam's*, good music and a good book. OK, a younger man may need more, but hey, I ain't young and can get by on the memories. Smile

    * On special price at Asda's for £12.00

    Some say I'm a piss head, everyone knows I hate to argue. jimlad I am in a renaissance period, I am contemplating my future. Well, that's my excuse for dossing 24/7. Renaissance period sounds sort of cool, don't you think.

    Lots of good salad stuff in our fridge at the moment ...

    Also some lovely chicken with skin on ... I love eating chicken with skin on - the more crispy the better !

    I also bought some raspberries recently - they are a good choice for dessert with double cream I think !

    What great LCHF foods do you have this weekend?

    All the best Jan

    Well the contents of our fridge was down to 250g butter  Exclamation So when out in Sainsbury's I bought some more. Has anyone else noticed that the price of some butter has come down in recent weeks?

    Did also buy some great cheese, meat, fish, vegetables, eggs etc ... ah yes and a couple of bottles of Chardonnay.
    Well one of them  Smile  will go well with the fish that's currently cooking. LOL!

    All the best Jan

    Can you believe this thread's previous post was a while ago now ...
    LOL! Our fridge certainly hasn't been empty Smile  

    With the very warm weather recently it was full to bursting with all good salad type foods.

    Out yesterday it is now quite full of British Strawberries and raspberries .... ooh and thick double cream.
    I was going to get Cornish Clotted Cream but Sainsbury's had sold out!

    Thank goodness for fridges though what a blessing they are ...

    All the best Jan

    Oh NOOOOO! Not a cream shortage just as decent local strawberries are arriving Sad

    Last week was one of those "Wow! I don't need to buy much!" weeks, and now I've eaten most of it.

    The kipper I bought this morning was eaten soon after lunch. The salmon and samphire are still there. Couldn't be bothered to drag myself round the Co-Op today so I'll have to add that to my shopping trip downtown tomorrow, and while I'm out I'll do some hunting and gathering in the farm shop too, then the fridge will be full of the Usual Suspects again - assorted meat and vegetables. I might be able to fit in another block or two of Anchor if it's still on offer. Maybe it's extra demand for butter that has reduced the cream supply?
