I'll be dining out with work colleagues. :sigh; Probably will have a lively conversation trying to get the server to understand that I can't have any additives on the food. That's always fun. "No butter, Ma'am?" "No, no butter, no oil, no fat of any kind, no sauce." "And on the vegetables Ma'am?" "No butter, no oil, no fat of any kind. If they could just be steamed please?" "Would you like salad dressing Ma'am?" "No thank you, no butter, no oil, no fat of any kind..." "Bread Ma'am?" "No."

It's enough to make you want to go hungry. :sigh;

You can share my micro chips if you want? I promise I wont put anything on them :hug2:

Tink
06-08-2008, 10:51 AM
I'm not sure what a micro chip is? Other than something for a computer of course! :lol:

Those sorts of questions come AFTER I've already explained what I need to have. :rolleyes: I know they are just trying to get it right, but honestly I swear they don't listen! :lol:

I did have one server once, who really got into it though. He took it as a challenge to be able to give me the nicest dinner he could while not allowing the kitchen to do anything "saucy" to it! :lol:

So, how high in fat and carbs are those micro chips? :D

Wendy
06-08-2008, 10:53 AM
We've got roast pork, we always have a mid week roast on a Wednesday :D

Tink
06-08-2008, 10:55 AM
Ahhhh, now that sounds just lovely! :yes:

Dawn
06-08-2008, 10:55 AM
Microwaveable french fries Tink. You don't want to know the nutritional information. :eek:

Tink
06-08-2008, 10:56 AM
:eek: OH GOSH! Well, it was a sweet offer none the less. :yes: (Haven't had a french fry in ages. I'd probably devour the whole packet and Keith wouldn't even get a taste). :sorry:

keith
06-08-2008, 10:57 AM

A tiny box of fries that you pop in the microwave for 3 minutes :lol: It's junk food for lazy people and I have a freezer full of them



So, how high in fat and carbs are those micro chips? :D

erm :lol: well it doesnt say but it does say that theyre "gluten free and very tasty" so I dont really think you can ask for more than that really??

keith

:lol: there's lots of veggies though so if you don't like vegetables you won't like it :D

We've got roast pork and apple sauce, roast potatoes (for Chris) roasted squash and parsnips, carrots, swede, cauliflower cheese and courgettes cooked with onions, mushrooms and little smoked bacon :D

Strawberries and clotted cream for pudding :D

I'm feeling hungry now :lol:

Tink
06-08-2008, 11:04 AM

My goodness Ms. Tink, that sounds like a pretty strict diet you have yourself on. I can't even imagine eating a potato without something on it, or do you not eat a potato. I think I could do steamed veggies as long as they are hot and I have some salt and pepper though.

: roast potatoes

Now before we make the journey, can we establish if there will be some nice well done roasties? I like mine kinda almost burnt... and are they going to be the really crispy ones or the ones that are really nicely done but still soft to eat?

Wendy

The more the merrier :D it won't be pork though, next Wednesday it will be roast lamb with mint sauce can't say it too loud someone might throw something at me :D

I'm doing a pasta dish. Cut up chicken breasts into cubes and fry in butter for 5 mins. Add sliced leek and cook for 2 mins. Add a leek sauce and simmer for 10 mins. Put into a casserole dish with cooked pasta and mix together. Grate cheese on top and stick in the oven for 20 mins.
Served with a fresh salad and garlic bread.

No dessert....not very often we have one of those.

Ursula
06-08-2008, 11:43 AM
Me too..... rings around for a coach ... how many seats do we need?

Tink
06-08-2008, 11:44 AM
It is quite a strict diet, anony mouse. :sigh; Nothing but very lean protien (as in no visible fat what so ever) and certain raw or steamed veggies. :sigh;

It's working though, so I really musn't complain.

Wendy! :cry1: I thought we were friends! :cry1:

Ursula
06-08-2008, 11:45 AM
I just read last night on my other site... that optifast is full of sugar so beware :(

Tink
06-08-2008, 11:47 AM
It's not optifast. :hug1: But thanks for watching out for me! :hug1: The stuff I have is specially formulated for people with blood glucose issues like me. :( Makes it as appealing as eating bark and leaves. :sigh;

How are you doing with the liquids? You must be nearly ready to have something solid, yes? :unsure:

Wendy
06-08-2008, 11:47 AM

I only make crispy ones with soft centres :D not burnt though, just a nice golden colour. I only use King Edward potatoes or Roosters as the make the best roast potatoes without having to cheat and put semolina on them as Delia or someone has started saying :rolleyes008)

Can't beat the good old way of cooking things, my Nan taught me well :D

Chris' mum does a water roast YUK - where the bottom of the potatoes are in gravy but the top goes hard :(

Wendy

I'm sorry :hug1: :hug1:

I don't do roast pots very often cos when I do do them I do them in proper goose fat and they come out delish... fluffy inside and crispy outside. Don't think about the calories...

Ursula
06-08-2008, 11:52 AM
and this is exactly why I'm on liquids now for 4 weeks... lol...

Pasta. I'll make a sauce with tomatoes, courgettes, yellow pepper and mushrooms. :)

:( I can't have pasta, too many carbs, I suppose I could have bean sprouts instead. That's what I do when I make Spaghetti Bolognaise :lol:

Have you tried non-wheat pasta? Would that be less carbs?

mumof2
06-08-2008, 12:24 PM
I will make DH and the boys a meaty spaghetti bolognaise with a veggie one for myself, or a shepherds pie (with a veggie one for me!) or beef stew for them but then i'm not sure what i'll have...

Can the coach come up to Scotland please that sounds much better than my vegetable bake. But I have to go to work tonight so can I just eat and run please?

You all are talking about tea, and I've yet to get out of bed and make brekkie for the 7 kids roaming through my house...

Dinner tonight though will be the Chicken Caccitore I made in the slow cooker LAST night...we had a last minute change of plans and went out for all you can eat sushi with friends instead...YUMMY!

Taja
06-08-2008, 02:00 PM
Nothing for me for dinner tonight. The joys of solo life!

It's really more self-preservation than anything else. If I eat much after 5:00 p.m., I gain weight. If I eat moderately throughout the day, I lose weight without having to think too much about what I'm eating. I do plan what I'm going to eat for reasonable nutritional balance, but if I really want a treat I will eat it early afternoon rather than later in the day.

So I save my evening meals for special occasions with family and friends! :)

Chicken Drumsticks coated with portugese spices - chili, lemon, not sure what else cos I buy it in a jar! :lol: It's spicy but not hot - tasty spicy. Hey if my picky DS will eat it....

It was very yummy if I do say so myself.

07-08-2008, 11:36 AM
huh, well I went for the bolognaise - wish i hadn't bothered! the boys weren't hungry when they got back so just had toast later, and DH was around 4 hours late home from work - dinner was in the fridge and we'd all had showers and got into jim-jams ready for bed. :rolleyes008:
