Haha no worries!! I do cherish I nice coffee from Starbucks every now and again, especially in this weather. I often keep double cream at work but I just can't get through it all before it turns so I thought sod it, single will do. For 1 floz it's 1.1 carb instead of the 0.8 in double so it's no biggie.

I have finally expanded my breakfast/lunch menu! Found some gluten free sausages (2g carb each) and some gluten free black pudding (4g carbs a slice) yesterday, so had 2 of the sausages with my usual breakfast, and they were lovely. I'll try the black pudding tomorrow.

Breakfast
2 pints black coffee, no sweeteners

Lunch
3 fried duck eggs (an extra one to make up for lack of dinner yesterday - we were out, and ate on the way home, only had a prawn cocktail all day, plus coffee! Wasn't hungry.)
2 gluten free sausages
3 rashers streaky bacon

Dinner (will be)
Chicken paprika (chicken, tomato purée, peppers, 1/2 an onion, garlic, paprika, sour cream)
Garlic mushrooms

Sadly, we don't have Double Cream in the US, at Starbucks or anywhere. Heavy Whipping Cream at 36% fat is much less creamier than the UK Double Cream at 48% or so.

I'm jealous of all y'all with duck eggs so readily available in your area. Just how much do they cost in your neck of the woods? My local Asian market carries them, but at 75 cents per egg, it's fairly cost-prohibitive, I'm afraid.

My lunch today is four plain ole' boring chicken eggs, hard-boiled and sprinkled with a light dusting of kosher salt. Don't get me wrong, though—those little suckers are delicious.

And for dinner, my fiancé and I are finally polishing off the last of the big pork shoulder steak package I whipped out on Monday. Damn, those lasted forever, and the package cost me probably 8 dollars or so. For 1.19 a pound, they taste just as good as any mid-range steak.

I rub them with Frontier's Five Spice Powder blend and salt and let them dry age overnight in the fridge, uncovered. Pop 'em under the broiler for ~3-5 minutes per side, rest them for 5 under a foil tent, and bam. Done. I ultimately prefer to prepare them in a skillet for a better sear and less chewiness, but the broiler method is just so easy that I've really been into it lately.

The fat renders nicely, offering a succulent, juicy texture, but doesn't burn under the heat of the broiler. It may char the tiniest bit, but that's flava, man. The Five Spice powder is incredible. I have never had it until a few weeks ago, and it goes amazingly on every meat I've tried it with thus far. It adds this complex sweetness (which can be attributed to the cinnamon/anise, I suppose) and almost smokiness. Hard to describe. It smells like heaven and tastes just as good as it smells. The salt really ramps up the flavor, and I've found that some garlic paste/powder/what-have-you also elevates the experience.

I'm going to also roast off the rest of my daikon radish; I julienned it with my Mandoline slicer, tossed with some spices, salt, and LARD, and am now letting it mellow in the fridge. I'm still unfamiliar with how to adequately prepare daikon. It takes a while to get tender, so I'm going to try roasting it for maybe an hour or so, tossing as needed to ensure even cooking. Will top with fresh green onions at the end.

Also having 40g of almond butter as my after dinner tasty treat. I put it in a little cup and slowly work my way through it with a spoon, saving each and every bite. It's a great experience where I actually taste the food I'm eating rather than power through it like my fiancé used to with those little cups of ketchup at McDonald's. We're both better now.

AND LIMETWIST WROTE A NOVEL AGAIN.

This is what you do to me, LCF, when I don't come on for a few days. Dangit!

Darkginger, I sadly had to skip the duck eggs this morning because I was running late and ended up not eating. Tomorrow they are hitting the fry pan. I must tell you I bought them because of you. It will be a first for me but I found them in a local Asian grocery and they are labelled 'free range'. As for cost, a dozen runs $6.00.

Limetwist, even though I had a full dinner and am not hungry at all, when I read your post, my mouth was salivating. One of these days, I am going to arrive at your front door, fork and knife in hand!!!
