    Today I am making a regular (wheat + sugar) birthday cake for my partner's little brother. It is sooooooo not primal, but neither is he, and gifts should be what the recipient wants, not you. Still, very strange seeing and handling all that sugar and wheat in my kitchen. It's a chocolate sponge sandwich, with chocolate buttercream, fenced in chocolate cigarellos and topped with a truffle selection. I don't know if I'll try it. It's looking beautiful but I'm not really sure I'll be able to handle all that sugar, even in a small portion. We'll see.

    Brunch:
    2 x bacon
    2 x poached eggs
    heap of sauteed mushrooms
    Cortido

    Dinner @ The Saffron:
    Papadom with fresh onion & tomato
    Tandoori chicken (2 x legs). Took a spoon of rice but only ate a mouthful, tasted of nothing!
    Salad with lemon juice
    Shared a slice of cake with my partner. It was really good and looked stunning, everyone loved it. I'll work hard tomorrow and feel proud of myself.

    You are doing well Nibbler! Even your sugar-grain-cake sounds good, (also good you didn't give in and ate 3 pieces of it)!

    I wondered about your papadum, how do you make them or do you have a brand to recommend? When I prepare papadums, i make them in large quantities with a good friend, using only 3 ingredients: lentil flour, cumin, pepper (and water and oil). Do you substitute the lentils or add anything else? (i learned it isn't strictly primal but i suspect it is quite a healthy food)

    Hi Halfbunny,
    I went out for a family meal (hence bday cake) to a local indian restaurant so I have no clue what was in it, it will have been a standard gram-flour and water recipe. I wouldn't bother making papadoms cos they're not primal, it's just carbs, and I'd only ever eat one in a blue moon.

    A ok!

    Lentils, well the ones we have here and smash for papadums, have quite some micronutrients, but are indeed mostly carb! I couldn't imagine making papadums from plain flour, but that is probably what restaurants do...
    (i personally don't mind some carbs per se, though i am trying to keep track and keep it under a 150grams per day)

    No, papadoms are made from gram flour (chickpea flour) in restaurants, not wheat flour. Otherwise they wouldn't be papadoms, they'd be chapatis. The only wheat I ate that day was in the cake

    Breakfast:
    2 x back bacon
    Fried mushrooms with coconut oil
    Cortido

    Spent the day at a wine tasting class. We use spittoons so only drank wine with the food matching, probably had about a glass.
    Lunch: cheese, tomato & ham omelette with salad
    Food matching tasters: stilton, cheddar, chorizo, smoked salmon, green apple, beef, tikka spiced chicken, dark chocolate

    Dinner: Took forever. Annoyed by fish, had to scale and bone it, so only ate half my dinner.
    Haddock goujons, prepared with cornstarch, egg & almond flour, then fried in goosefat & olive oil.
    A few sweet potato chips (that's 'fries' to some of you)

    Breakfast:
    2 x sausages
    2 x scrambled eggs with coconut oil
    Cortido

    Defrosted summer berries + half banana + coconut cream

    Lamb burgers & greek salad with feta

    Lamb burger recipe:
    500g lamb mince
    1/2 large onion / 1 small onion finely chopped
    Fat garlic clove finely chopped
    1 tbsp tomato puree, finely chopped thyme, parsley, rosemary, mint
    1 tsp ground cumin, salt, ground black pepper

    Saute onion & garlic in fat of choice until soft. Leave to cool.
    Chop herbs. Mix cooled onion, herbs, cumin, tom puree & seasoning with mince. Squish together well.
    Divide mixture into 4 burgers. Chill if you have time.
    Fry both sides of burgers off in a bit of olive oil, just to colour and firm.
    Bung in 200oc oven for 20 mins.
    NOM. Would be nice with some tzaziki along side greek salad, and lemon potatoes if you eat them.

    Couple of chunks of chocolate and a small glass of shiraz
