    What are you making for dinner tonight? 20th Jun 17 at 12:15 AM
    Am I imagining it?
    My post count has gone down significantly and this thread seems to have disappeared, is this a coincidence?

    What's happened?

    We had scallop & chorizo linguine. At the moment we are trying to eat some of our freezer stocks. Have managed to get one of three freezers empty.

    Tomorrow we're having a roast chicken dinner.

    For the first time in a few months I actually felt like it'd be nice to cook something properly, rather than merely assembling food on a plate. So we had chicken and mushroom risotto, and I made enough to have it for my lunch for the next two days as well. And the current Mr Badger and the offspring ate it and actually deigned to compliment me on it too. Wonders will never cease.

    Roast chicken, stuffing, gravy, broccoli, sweetcorn, cauliflower cheese and some mushrooms.

    Leftover stuffing is ready for lunches tomorrow. I really enjoy it in soup for a jazzed-up lunch.

    Leftover roast repeat is in the fridge for tomorrow too, so I'll be back to look but not post tomorrow.
