    Nah, just my standard 4 pack of Grolsch on the way home. I'll let her have a can if she really wants one but she doesn't like lager so I'll be alright. I did get her a Wispa Duo at lunchtime though...

    Hello Best,

    A few years ago a Friend`s Wife gave me a Recipe book in the Pub that without me noticing was as You described for - `Low Fat Meals` / `Diet Meals`.

    When I took it home my Wife who was not overweight [or `paranoid` about Her weight] questioned me on the `motive` behind the Gift even though the woman who gave me the Book was a good friend.

    I had been speaking to my Friend and his Wife about cooking Chilli mince / Chilli Con Carne and Curry`s so they found the Recipe Book and gave it to me as the recipes gave details on how to cook that type of Meal with a lower fat content that usual.

    My Friend`s Wife was very weight concious which is why she had originally bought the book.

    My Wife like perhaps a lot of women probably did think for a moment that her friend might have been `hinting` something - I have seen similar thoughts many times with other Women that I know.

    Just a quick Joke about a Weight Loss Cookbook Recipe:

    My sisters and I have weight problems and are always sharing diet tips. One day my oldest sister was showing us a low-fat cookbook and pointed out a chicken dish she had tried the night before. Reading the ingredients, I commented, “It looks like it would taste really bland.”

    “It did,” she replied, “until I added cheese and sour cream.”

    Good Luck with your Valentines gift Best.

    Chris

    :p So it is true you Yorkshire folk are a bit tight!
    I am hoping that the book doesn’t make her think I am expecting her to lose a lot of weight. Besides, she is used to my dry humour.

    That is the sort of book I bought.
    She is trying to lose weight, but isn’t much overweight, although losing a stone of weight would not make her thin, if you know what I mean.
    Trouble is, even in her own words, if she loses weight it will be from the parts that she wants to keep some fat. And I agree with that. ;)
