I just had the best surprise.
I have been a member of another chat group for 8+ years now (non IVF related), and one of the girls on it just rang me and said she is coming through my town in a few weeks time.
We are FINALLY going to meet!
Now, I just need to lose 23 kilos before the 26th January....
Damn you, cherry slice!
@Blossom74 that looks delish. Afm I've just finished pulling apart a huge painted crayfish similar to this:

There is so much flesh in it I don't know how the two of us will finish it, but I'm going to make something I made for DP last Valentine's Day. Basically you dice the flesh up and cook it in butter and yellow curry powder then serve it on top of pasta with a home made tomato pasta sauce. Yuhuhummmm
It looks pretty @JulieM, but I wouldn't eat it. I don't eat things that come from the ocean!
I don't eat internals either (kidney, brains etc - )
Or avocado. Or hot spicy stuff that burns your butt on the way out......
It would easily feed three but don't think I could quite stretch it to two meals. Mornay is overrated I reckon so not going there. We were going to cut it small, crumb and cook like calamari but I know this pasta meal is divine, plus I made a heap of tomato pasta sauce and froze it some time ago, so really quick and easy. It's surprising how well the curry butter goes over the top of a tomato pasta.
One thing I have noticed now, other than my increased appetite, is when I need to eat, I need to eat NOW ! Life seems to revolve around food these days...
@Charlie74 I truly believe that if an embie is good it will implant regardless. My old FS told me that when he was working in Africa they had to do a c/s on a lady because her baby was in her abdomen. Now for an egg to go the wrong way and fertilise and implant where there is zero lining and grow into a healthy baby is pretty amazing.
