    I thought a general thread on daily eating may help some of us. Please remember when I post that I'm on Maint though.

    B: left over casserole from last night.

    L: I'll be off to the Café as usual. (I had a Lamb Leg Steak and salad)

    D: Pork Chops with cabbage and leek mix and cauliflower cheese.

    Its not boring mate, you just need to find something to jazz it up a bit if its starting to feel bland to you, how about a sauce or something to go over your veggies rather than just buttery? I could eat pork chops til they come out my ears LOL

    Good morning

    Jools it's all about preparation and planning, I generally plan what I'm eating tomorrow the evening before.

    Supergran, ah now I understand the ref on the other thread. :)

    B: Porridge and black and blue berries.

    L: I'll be off to the Café as usual.

    D: Lamb curry, I got the diced lamb out of the freezer this morning. I have a great recipe that a girl gave me, it's fantastic.

    Here it is.

    Finely chop half an onion and fry in extra virgin olive oil until brown.
    Add salt to taste
    Add 4 cloves of garlic and about inch root ginger finely chopped.
    Add about teasp of cumin seeds
    Add 2-3 green chillies finely chopped (add more or less to get the right heat!)
    Chop two fresh tomatoes and add and fry untill cooked.
    Add 1lb cubed raw Lamb and fry until cooked.
    Now add just enough water to cover and simmer for 20 mins.
    Then uncover and reduce liquid (boil rapidly) until it is the consistency you like.
    Add half a teasp of garam masala
    sprinkle with a generous ammount of fresh corriander.

    Jim the lamb curry sounds delish ... is that suitable for induction would you say?

    I think Ive got myself into this rut where Im not 100% sure on cream and cooking it! Doesn't seem right as cream is for desert! Still I am gonna get some and try the mushroom sauce.

    Todays menus for me ..

    Brekkie - scrambled eggs with onions

    Lunch - tuna & mayo with cucumber

    Tea - chicken breast with the usual veggies!

    Jools,

    my carb counter says that a cup of chopped onion is 8.71 carbs which is about half of a large onion at a guess, but as your having this with a lb of meat your not going to eat all that in one go are you, I'd say 4 carbs as a rough guide.
