    Each month, we start a new thread called "What did you cook/eat today?" Tell what you have cooked or eaten on that day. As simple as that. The thread is simply to show what you have prepared and/or eaten because it varies so much from person to person and from country to country. Feel free to also cover any meal or snack that you have eaten during the day. And we love photos!

    Unfortunately (or fortunately depending upon your point of view) a mate came around yesterday afternoon and we both got fishcaked so a market bought corn cob was substituted for the Bangla.

    However, I reheated the Bangla this afternoon with aloo ghobi, a duck egg and a whole meal roti. It went down very well.

  7. Haven't even been up 30 minutes yet - having my 1st cup of coffee and a couple of peanut butter crackers along with my AM pills.

    After Mom gets up, we'll have roasted potatoes & sausage links.

  9. That looks delicious. And simple to make. May try making it with spaghetti squash to cut the carbs.

    Broccoli Cheddar Soup with Tabouleh.

    I made this using a recipe that was very heavy with bulgar wheat. Next time, I will use more parsley and mint, and less of the wheat, though I still really liked the flavor a lot. The orange bits are bell pepper: I didn't have any tomato when the time came to make it, so I improvised.

    I've gone off of carbs a few times with success..I lost weight, but I wasn't any happier...actually, I felt like I was missing out. So, now, I try to moderate....

  14. I'm diabetic, so I try to eat lower-carb as much as possible, but sometimes it's almost unavoidable.
