The best puds are usually chocolate! 
This one we just had at dinner tonight 
@thecottageiow Shanklin
A chocolate cremeux with almond essence and chocolate panna cotta. Beyond yum! So naughty but sometimes you just have to. 
Life is for living. Tomorrow is another day.
And weekdays can be for the healthier low carb sugar and wheat free lifestyle. .

Saturday night dinner entertaining

Saturday night dinner entertaining. 
My supper party last night was a gaspacho starter with added chopped cucumber and croutons to add texture to the cold soup.
Then this home-cooked paella.
The rice was cooked in shellfish stock (lobster, mussels, chicken, garlic and onions in the vegetable water stock), and chicken thighs roasted first with crispy skin, chorizo, prawns, mussels, squid, and some sliced peppers to decorate.
I served it with a green salad.
Cheeses and strawberries and cream for pud.

Pad Thai dinner served up with a swan decoration made from apples. 
One of my favourite Thai dishes of rice noodles, bean shoots, chopped peanuts, king prawns, and lime juice, chillies, fish sauce, galangal, coriander, Thai basil and a tiny pinch of palm sugar to flavour.

How to eat out healthily in restaurants

How to eat out healthily in restaurants.

My new favourite restaurant  @fancycrabuk 
Grilled Squid Steak with squid ink, roasted beetroot, salad
Grilled over charcoal and served with a yuzu lime, szechwan pepper, lemongrass & galangal dressing.
And 'Merus' from the largest part of the crab leg grilled with butter and hollandaise sauce with triple cooked fries ( I didnt eat them).
With a side of Steamed Kale Roasted anchovy & bone marrow butter
Just delcious!

Healthy protein and low carb home cooked supper

Healthy protein and low carb home cooked supper.

Chargrilled organic lamb cutlets with a 'swoosh' of houmous (trying to be decorative and chef-y) with buttered cavolo nero, carrots and  broccoli flowerlets. Colourful, rainbow, dark green and purple vegetables are all full of vitamins and minerals. The more colour you add into your vegetable choices the healthier the benefits. 
Butter on the vegetables for good fats.
