    What are You Making For Dinner Tonight ? 2nd Jan 12 at 4:03 PM
    Hi I know that there is a what have you baked today, what is in your slow cooker today and the weekly meal planner threads already but there does not seem to be a What are cooking for dinner tonight thread.

    I just wondered if anyone would like to join me in this perhaps we can get tips and inspiration from each other.

    To start us off I am doing Homemade chilli with spicy wedges today

    I have made a huge vat of chilli there is enough for the four of us to have 4 meals so will be freezing three lots later on.

    Today, I slow cooked chicken thighs and drumsticks in a jerk marinade with several sticks of sliced celery, 3 peeled chopped fresh tomatoes and some slightly limp spring onions.
    Served with rice, it does us both for dinner, plus a lunch for bloke tomorrow (as he always does - no shop bought lunches for him!)

    Have thrown tea in the slow cooker, huge pack of mince, 2 tins toms, onions, mushrooms, garlic, herbs, wine, dash wosterchire sauce, bit of stock, will hopefully come home to a lovely bolognese this afternoon

    Have made myself a naughty breakfast while I was making that up too....

    We are desperately trying to empty the freezer at the minute, but seem to be getting nowhere fast (I'm sure things multiply in there )

    Last night DH had king prawn linguine and I had chicken wrapped in bacon with roasted parsnips and carrots.
    Tonight DH will have a ready meal from the freezer and I will have leftover chicken in a risotto with green vegetables.

    Massaman beef cury with rice and naan bread. Had a visitor so had to get some pitta breads and wraps out of the freezer to make it go a bit further. And some poppadums with chutney.

    Hi all, can I join you?

    Tonight i've tried to jazz up some weight w@tchers sausages found in the freezer by doing a spicy casserole. serving it with some frozen steamed veggies and mash.
    I'm also trying to de-clutter freezer for xmas, and in the long term so that I can start batch cooking and freezing meals.

    I've got a mr T frozen 'Simply cook' joint of gammon to use up - any suggestions that aren't the usual 'gammon egg and chips'? want to try something new...

    I just had hm chicken and mushroom soup - since sunday have managed to stretch a small chicken for a roast, chicken and prawn thai green curry (for 4), and now soup for me.

    I ate all the soup oops- so made DH and the kids hm pizza using naam bread.

    When I cook a gammon (1kg)- it is usually in the SC, and one day will have it with herb potatoes and veg; the next day we will have gammon, peas, and rice, with sweet chilli sauce, and the third day, there should be enough to do a sweet chilli sauce stirfry with gammon, stirfried veg - anything I have in the freeze really - carrots/peas/broccoli/beans/peppers/onions/mushrooms etc, and a packet of cheap noodles. The last dish, doesn't look great on the plate, but is absolutely gorgeous.

    We like to stretch a piece of meat in this house!

    Too much YS meat to use up so just having it in buns for the next few days rather than meals as such...lovely ham or pork. On it's own or with other things. I suppose I could do some meals like ham, eggs, mushrooms and chips. Or a ham salad...

    Had chicken fajitas with heaps of side salad last night which was so simple but totally and utterly scrumptious

    Tonight I'm cooking my favouritest ever dinner (OH and DD3 favourite too!)...

    Ginger pork and dauphinoise pototoes

    The ginger pork was a recipe I found in a £1.99 recipe book last year and it's now my speciality!! lol

    I was super organised last night. Have veg and spuds prepared and pork is marinading, so just need to switch on the cooker/oven when I get home and get the heat going!

    Oh I can't wait! Mouth watering

    We're having left over HM chicken korma from the freezer - trying to run it down (like a few other people's posts - also seems to be never ending - at this rate it'll be switched off for the whole time we're away at Christmas!)
