But just think Bearman...when you have lost the weight on put on that slinky thong that is languishing in the bedroom drawer you'll feel wonderful and be able to serve up a Lasagne in style!x

there'sd nothing like trying to lose a bit of weight, to make you crave the fattening stuff. I supposed to be working, but for some reason I keep thinking about lasagne and garlic bread - I've got some beef, pancetta, chicken livers, onions, garlic, lots of tinned tomatoes and passatta, there's plenty of herbs in the garden, there's milk and both parmesan and cheddar cheeses in the fridge, and there's always some dried lasagne in the cupboard...........no, no stop it! Why do I do this to myself. Its supposed to be weight watchers French Lamb Casserole tonight - oh joy!

Sometimes I think the only answer is to go ahead and eat what you really want. I find if I try to settle for anything else, all I do is go fridge raiding. I end up eating all sorts of things I shouldn't but aren't as bad as what I really want, then end up giving in and eating what I really wanted in the first place. Afterwards I find I've consumed twice the number of calories I would have done, if I'd just gone ahead and eaten what I really wanted.

Right now I have a real craving for carbs - I've been following weight watchers menu ideas (mainly) recently and I'm feeling really starved of garlic bread dripping butter, pastries (of any kind) and doorstep sandwiches loaded with naughty things like bacon, cheddar, avocado, sauage, mayo, blue cheese (but not all together..........well, errr, probably not........) Maybe I'll fix my carb itch with a risotto tonight.

Lumps in Spanish sausage are usually fat and gristle. My DH thinks that if he really fries Lidl's Spanish sausages, "most of the fat gets cooked out." I just let him dream...he doesn't eat supper (acid reflux) so he always has a big brekky...dude's never had a weight problem anyway.

I know what you mean about sausages, we have the same problem here. We don't even get told how much meat we're getting. Normally they are decidely chewy with great lumps(?*!) in them. Luckily we have an English supermarket not too far away now, and they sell English sausages in all shapes and sizes, fresh and frozen. I have to stop myself bulk buying, still can't believe they'll still be there next time!

I defrosted the freezer today. Not too many surprises, but did find several packs of Portuguese sausages, think I'll donate them to the dog, along with a large pack of freezer burnt chicken livers, and a bulk pack of what I think is soup, but no label.
The freezer is now only half full instead of stuffed ( found half a dozen half used packs of frozen peas), so lots of room for Christmas goodies. Found a pack of mince pies and some sausage rolls from last year. So now it's a toss up of whether to add them to this years haul, or to hell with the diet and eat them up first.

I am still jonesing heavily for falafel, particularly after watching Ottolenghi's Jerusalem programme, so I put some garbanzos in soak. Only three handfuls but those puppies have swelled bigtime!! My recipe calls for soaking them for 24 hrs, and grinding the raw garbanzos to a sandy texture with onion, coriander powder, parsley etc. I am a heretic...I add garlic! Just a little.
I realise watching the Jerusalem show that I was making my falafel way too big.

Ori I agree...I make a very similar one with Ciabatta loaf or the oblong rolls.
I whizz up olive oil, chilli flakes, fresh parsley and garlic to a runnyish paste. Then paint it on both each side of the bread/roll...wrap in foil then I either freeze as they are or if I need it straight away pop the package into the hot oven. Unwrap and leaving it in the foil and pop back in for an extra couple of mins til the top crusty....then slice into sandwich fingers...delish!

Mmmm, sounds so much better, Orinoco.....x
I'd still prefer to have my chunky chips with Lasagne though, if Bearman wouldn't mind?!

Spanish "garlic bread" means rubbing a cut clove of garlic on bread, toasted or not. End of story. No grease needed, you get the taste without the excessive dragon-breath.

Yummy!!! - but I'm not keen on garlic bread, Bearman?......it's a grease thing?......I don't like eating greasy things for some reason. So can I be cheeky and do what I do when eating out? - and request chunky chips instead of salad and garlic bread?

I don't drink wine either, so I have bottles of the stuff everywhere that were gifts last Christmas - so I'll get Roo to load up the wheelbarrow (as neither of us can drive!) and then you can treat us to a Lasagne evening - and I can treat everyone to a Liquid one!!!

And don't forget too? - that it's always treble portions for Roo, will you? I'll bring his highchair and bib - Oh squirrels! can that little kangaroo eat!!! ;o>

OK then, its decided - tomorrow is lasagne night at my house. Everyone's invited. I will lay on the lasagne, garlic bread and salads. You just need to bring the red wine.

You HAD to say the L word, didn't you?!! If I was only allowed one food for the rest of my life, then I'd be with Garfield on that and simply live off Lasagne!!! And I haven't made or eaten one for months either!..... AND I MISS IT TOO NOW!!!

I saw this today on Comics.com and thought of this group...and this thread.

I'll tell you what I'm craving...my sense of taste. For some reason today nothing tastes like anything. I haven't got a cold but my mouth seems to be dead. I had to stop myself at lunch because I was going for the marmalade, even though I was really physically no longer hungry I wasn't *satisfied.*

I am desperately craving Chocolate Brazils!

I know, because I haven't had a bag for weeks now (trying the old 'cold turkey' treatment!) but I have just come to in the middle of cooking a Chicken Curry to find myself with a jar of Peanut Butter in one hand and a spoon in the other?!! I have HAD to ask for it to be hidden somewhere in case the temptation returns! - but I know where it will be?! - in the Christmas Goodie Box, in the Garage, on top of the freezer! - where I KNOW there is a BIG box of Brazils also 'hidden'........!

I want to make something like the Hairy Dieter's cassoulet but we don't have all the bangin' variety of bangers y'all have there in the UK. I'll have to do what I can with what there is. I love how they sell sausages there with a meat-percentage marked on. Here that never happens, you just have to read the labels and know your butcher if you can.

Yum! Yes please! Love cassoulet!

Oh I am all over that like a rash!

Hi Ori - come on over to my place - Cassoulet is being served up. I had a big tin of Confit du canard that I bought back from France and some smoked sausage so cassoulet is a must.
