I have never heard of a potato ricer before. Just looked it up and I am intrigued. Thanks for the suggestion ColinUK.

I might even get one. Being metal don't they make the potato cold or is it so quick it makes no difference?

Morning all, 4.9 here. Sounds windy outside, maybe an indoor day. had a riding lesson yesterday and the freezing cold wind was blowing up the valley and straight across the arena, and straight through me!

07:36 BS 6.0 :)

A Very Good Morning to you all & have a Wonderful Day! ;)

Just finished munching breakfast while watching Superman & Lois which I only just caught the tail end of last night before Strictly: partly through the pilot & all 13? episodes are available to watch right now on iPlayer. Seems very interesting: Clark married to Lois with 2 teenage twin boys! :confused:

Loved Rose’s routine on Strictly last night & that lift was WOW! :p:cool:

Loved The Wheel last night too & even stayed up long enough to see Blankety Blank: haven’t stayed up THAT late recently; gives a different shape to the day now I’m up & stay up later! :rolleyes:

Sun shining here in Wales.Hope everyone has a good day. 6 this a.m. for me but with sunshine and my helper coming to plant bare root fruit trees and help set up yet another raised bed I refuse to be glum about it. I haven't seen the lad for weeks as he and his girlfriend have been victims of the super-cold. Looking forward to young company and an extended orchard.

Morning good folks of Diabetesland. 6.9 for me.

Yesterday was a day of mixed weather, but mostly very wet! We managed a walk around the village and got some nice goodies for the girls’ Christmas hampers. It was great just being able to pop “ home” when the rain got too heavy. We could hear the entertainment from the cottage! Just had cheese and biscuits last night as we’d had a hog roast buttie for lunch. It was delicious but very filling.

Today, after our full English, we’re off out walking. The weather has promised to behave itself and be dry all day! Cold and windy but I can cope with that.

Just a final word. Sadly, I heard a former colleague/ friend’s daughter died on Friday, aged 19, she was involved in a car accident last weekend.:( I can’t begin to understand what they must be going through. Life is precious, don’t waste it, hug your family, tell them you love them and live your best life.

Have a GREAT weekend, whatever you decide to do. :)

7.4 today for me. Disappointing lunchtime meal at the local Turtle Bay for my little granddaughter Abby's 9th birthday here in Bournemouth. Had two supposedly alcoholic cocktails but was sorry for the alcohol content, more like a kiddies cordial. The meal was uninspiring and my little granddaughters was pathetic, we all contributed to her plate to give her something she could actually eat. We'd have been better off at a McDonalds, and saved myself £80. Walked down through the Bournemouth Pleasure Gardens, they have a great xmas display with novelty displays all the way through, brilliant sunshine but a bitterly cold North wind; she didn't seem to mind and she loved a ride on the traditional carousel by the pier, so not a total disaster.

Good morning.
10.3 for me the first time I woke up but at least I know what caused it.... the protein from 2 pork chops I ate late last night without bolusing for it and at least that was the peak, so only just out of range for a tiny fraction of time. Shot myself 2.5 units Fiasp and went back to sleep and woke up on 6.5 the next time when I injected Levemir and breakfast bolus, so I am going to offer the 6.5 as my waking reading this morning, as a. It looks better and b. I had no intention of getting up when I got the earlier high reading. I woke up because I was hot and uncomfortable, no doubt because my levels were too high.

We had a good couple of inches of snow here last night about 8pm and pretty well a blizzard but it must have got warmer through the night because it's just very wet out there this morning. It is the first wellies and over trousers day of the winter.

@ColinUK My brother in law is fancying a potato ricer and it is his birthday next week. He loves cooking gadgets. Can you recommend a good quality one? Possibly electric?

morning all

6.5 today, so ok with that, didn’t do a morning run today, partly due to an aching back from covering 8 Christmas Cakes in marzipan (only another 8 to go), and partly weather related, might try and go out a bit later, but still need to finish Christmas decs, make fudge, then help mum with her decs, oh and a Grand Prix to watch. Thankfully I am off work Monday and Tuesday.

@freesia - happy birthday for yesterday, sorry I missed it.

@Gwynn - I can also recommend a potato ricer, lover mine.

@ColinUK - enjoy your run

@eggyg - sorry to hear about your friends daughter,

Welcome to @Sheila.taylor12.

have a good Sunday everyone.

Good morning lovely people. 4.6 this morning. Seven day time in range 94% with zero hypos. I am ridiculously thrilled with this. Sadly it won’t last!

I have had a steel potato ricer, like this one https://www.amazon.co.uk/Profession...ocphy=9045269&hvtargid=pla-422167031193&psc=1. I may still have it in the back of a cupboard. I found it wasted a lot of potato. Yes @Gwynn the potato does get cool, but I always did it in advance and reheated in the microwave when needed.

@rebrascorer I also had an attachment for my hand blender that did good mash, but one day I found black specks in the potato and realised that the attachment was actually disintegrating and the specks were black plastic. Needless to say we didn’t eat them. I now just use a plastic masher and elbow-grease.

Good morning. Got a nice 6.3 reading today - which coming after last night's Chinese - is wonderful :) I did get on the exercise bike later in the evening and burned off 150 calories, so that was a bonus. The Chinese was hubby's way of cheering me up, had such a tearful day yesterday thinking of my mum with her vascular dementia, especially as I received a heartfelt Christmas card from her in the post, the only way he knows had to "deal" with it (me) is to relieve me of cooking - I'm not complaining as it really does take the pressure off and I did enjoy my chow mien.....and I only had a high of 7.6 a couple of hours later.
Anyway, another day, let's see what this brings....our daughter's car needs to be looked at, kind of making a grinding noise after she went over a bump yesterday, so got to go check it out - praying it will be no more than the exhaust..... fingers crossed.
Enjoy your Sunday folks :)

Just get a decent manual ricer. I’ve never seen an electric one but guess that commercial kitchens have them.

If I want a decent quality kitchen anything then I look at:
Nisbets
Borough Kitchen
Divertimenti

If what I’m after is in any one of those then it’s a guarantee of quality.

I might not but it from them but it’s certainly how I start to look. Generally though they’re all really competitive on price.
