Here is the picture of my first Yorkies!!

MartiFL profile image

I have been so disciplined since April 23 of this year.

Not a single potato, nor bread, nor rice. No pasta or anything sweet. Have lost 13 pounds.

So no regrets when I devoured a yorkie at dinner. 15 grams of carbs down my throat in a few seconds.

And then, as we were cleaning up after dinner, I noticed that there was one, pitiful, deflated yorkie left in the muffin tin.

I’m not going to confess to having eaten a second one, but next thing I knew, it was gone!

So delicious! In my next life (after these 5.9 years are over), I’m going to eat ten!!

Now, back to my regularly-scheduled vegetables and salads.

Hugs to you all!

They are seriously impressive! Though you will need some practice to be able to serve gravy in them...

PS - great with jam too (aka jelly)

The original idea of yorkshires was they started the meal, with gravy. Whoever ate most yorkshires, got more meat. The hope was they'd be too full to want as much expensive meat. Many families then used left-over ones with jam for dessert. Waste not, want not...

I do like ginger jam - it is as well I can't buy it here or I'd be out the door to get a jar...

Always kept mine to have jam on, gravy makes them soggy. Mind you everyone thought I was mad.

Yes - I don't like them with gravy but then, Bisto gravy is just - no, I'd be banned,,,,

Not by me! The only sort my mum knew.

You do realise we're talking about food again, we're all obsessed with food. Blame the pred.

...and we had them with butter, sugar and raspberry vinegar (syrupy - an East Yorkshire recipe).

Think OH's family did them with butter and sugar - like their pancakes.

We had homemade raspberry vinegar! Don’t know if it was a Derbyshire thing. Gravy with them for the main dinner. Raspberry vinegar if for the pudding.

You are well informed do you originate from Yorkshire then? None of my non yorkie friends had ever heard of our unusual ways before???? Like eating cheese with Xmas cake!!! 😂😂

Although we now reside in the Midlands , old habits die hard!!!

My husband is from Cleethorpes (Lincolnshire) but his mother's family was from Yorkshire, he used to visit family in Cherry Burton and around Beverley somewhere.

I always ate cheese with Christmas cake and mince pies - I was brought up on the Welsh Borders, north Herefordshire. I have no idea how Yorkshire habits got to me!! Cheese and dark marmalade too.

A great Yorkshire tradition , me a Yorkshire lass we do have them at every opportunity!! Mine were much smaller this year done in a 12 bun tin, but I only had 2!! Those are magnificent. My nan would do a huge one in a roasting tin and we each hacked off a piece!! Lol😂😂😂

I like them best in a big tin. Especially with really crispy "bones"...

My English mother used to serve them with roast beef juice, not gravy. Is that a no-no?

Chrob profile image
Chrob in reply to Joaclp

Don’t think so , remember when we had steak and trying to share between everyone, taking the option of wiping bread round the pan . Tasted so good.

Bread and dripping! The east end family next door showed us that delight!!

Oh yes!! I remember my dad having steak and me getting a little corner piece of it. Nowadays my dad would be put in clink for child cruelty no doubt!! But that’s how it was then! “ we knew our place lol” xxx

PMRproAmbassador in reply to Joaclp

But there isn't a lot of juice from a roast - you must have fought over it. That's why gravy is made...

HeronNS profile image
HeronNS in reply to PMRpro

We always had plenty, depends on the pan and how it's roasted. I do remember a box of Bisto in the cupboard but I suspect my continental father had a poor opinion of it, so meat juice, unadulterated by flour or anything else, was our gravy. You could get more by adding water and dissolving what had started to stick to the pan. I have never in my entire life made gravy.

Jo you know the writer James Herriot? He said he met an old Yorkshire farmer who announced “ the definition of a posh gentleman is someone who gets out of his bath to go to the toilet “ !!!!

Thanks so much. But I’ll be afraid to step on the scales this Sunday. ;-(

They look wonderful.....impressed with your willpower!!

Love your kitchen! Very jealous that you live in Florida it’s my favourite place in the world! 😩😆

,

They look delicious! I broke my discipline yesterday with a piece of Christmas cake! Back to being good today!

Darling I’m thrilled you had cake cxx

Good for you with the weight loss and diet! I went on an almost no carb diet for 10 months, lost 60 lbs gained on 15 yrs pred, and then was in Italy for November and ate yummy bread and pasta. December back on greens and protein but yesterday blew it on friend's daughter's fabulous mince pie with whiskey sauce. Lesson here that as much as I thought the cravings had gone, well, gee...

Bloody cravings never go 😭😭😭😭😡😡😡😡

**Nee naw nee naw - wine & carb police here!** Is that a glass of wine in the photo? Disgraceful! 😱 AND yorkshire puddings. Shocking! 😳 😂

I hope you enjoyed every last drop of wine & the yorkshire puds! They look amazing, and your kitchen looks lovely. I've thoroughly enjoyed all my 'forbidden fruits' - and it's only boxing day! 😂

It’s champagne! Never have looked to see how many carbs in it.

Toad in the hole - that brought back memories!

You look amazing so happy. You deserve a treat go for it!!! Xxx

I really want your fridge!

Fridge envy xxxx

I'm sorry to have to tell you Marti but those Yorkshire's would be considered small in some parts of Yorkshire. When I lived in South Yorks the pudding would be the size of a dinner plate and the meat, veg and gravy placed inside. That's when the men worked down pit so no excess fat on any of them!

York54 in reply to ChrisMcT

I do that for my hubby now, it's called a Yorkshire flat cap!! Big piece of Yorkshire filled with stew plus spuds!! Gosh I'm feeling peckish!! 😉😉😉

Gosh! Well done! You really deserve these yorkies! Happy New Year from Scotland! X

Hurrah you lost 13 lbs, what a triumph and to crown it with a yorkie is just perfect! Congratulations and heres to you. I raise you a mince pie! My first sweet and carb offering since 1st Sept..... lol.

Happy New Year.

Happy New Year back to you!!

They look delicious. Like you I've been good ( well, fairly good) throughout the year but couldn't resist, when clearing up after Christmas lunch at my daughter's, all those delicious golden bits that had to be scraped of the dish - too, too good for the bin!

Those carbs don’t count, Maria.

P.S. this was the roastie dish, of course.

Me Too. Have you been exercising in any way?

Hi, Christopher. No. I am a complete slug and spend most of my days (sitting on my behind) playing duplicate bridge. There are three people at the club, however, who ARE exercising and eating low- carb. One has lost 42 pounds. The second has lost 48 pounds. And the last one (a guy) has lost 91 pounds.

We are believers!
