    I haven't weighed myself since before Christmas and don't plan to until the end of the month when hopefully some of the extra pounds will have come and gone.

    As a tip for anybody using Greek yogurt, the Tesco one in the 1kg rectangular pack is much nicer, thicker, than the half kilo packs. Plus much cheaper at 1.55 rather than 90p x 2 for the smaller ones.

    My wife makes her own Greek yogurt. There are two big tubs of it festering under a towel in the kitchen right now.

    I tend to buy my G yogurt in either Lidl or Aldi, they used to have huge tubs in Lidl, really nice yogurt, but they stopped them about 6 months ago, Iceland has a nice one Lakeland I think it`s called, but I have to rely on my friend to get it as I don`t shop there.

    I just put say a quarter, cut in half in food processer stalk an all, blitz, then scrape out with a spatula, 7/8 mins in micro. Then rinse the processer out under running water.

    Hummm so many reports of it being a faf on the internet that doesn't seem that bad.
    Been really craving carbs after no rice, pasta, bread or potatoes for ages, gave in and made a pie with left overs today.

    Thoroughly recommend Aldi Greek Yoghurt. White tubs about 500ml. But I have never tried shopping in Lidl yet.

    It`s simple with a processor, perhaps they were doing it by hand chopping.
    I have really slipped the last week so back tomorrow, posting my meals,

    Yesterday I had some beef left from Sunday, sauteed some radishes with a large piece of broccoli left from Sunday in butter, put the beef in for a minute to warm slightly, if you haven`t tried cooked radishes do, I am not a lover of them raw, but very palatable cooked, with an egg custard and my 4 squares of choc, 1024 cals 24 carbs.
    Today 2 large lamb chops with sauteed kale and 2 slices of celeriac. egg custard and choc later, 1662 cals 23 carbs, the chops weighed 323g, I am greedy with meat.

    Thursday, Grilled portabella mushroom with stilton , 2 to go, grilled broccoli, boiled bacon donated by neighbour who had cooked a huge joint for visiting family, who have postponed until next week due to ill health, and carrot and potato mash from my freezer, think mostly carrots but can`t recall, so my guesstimate today is 1085 cals, 33 carbs, which includes my egg custard and choc.
    Spending the afternoon going through my recipe file, basket really, looking for new ideas, before shopping.

    Roast chicken with roast sweet potatoes broccoli and cauliflower, went Aldi today and spotted some little tarts 9 in a box 99p reduced Christmas stock I presume, worked out 80 cals each and about 9 carbs, A generous mouthful or 2 bites, okay for a once a week treat.
    today is roughly 1051 cals 81 carbs.
    Will work hard next week to keep the carbs lower.

    Searching for an item in my cupboard Monday and found some "Grey Peas" they are a brown dried pea, I believe more commonly known as pigeon peas, they are a Black Country staple, soak overnight with a bit of bi-carb, rinse place in slow cooker, add some cooking bacon, I had about 200g and cook until soft, excellent, unfortunately very high carb, so my nostalgia food cost me dearly, but I enjoyed.
    Start again today.
    They may not have been as carby as I thought.
