    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.

    Beans on toast for OH, spaghetti on toast for me. In the need of something easy and comforting as we're both suffering from colds.

    Grilled lamb chops , kale, carrots, peas and mashed potato. With gravy yum! Can't remember the last time we had this but two of the chops were reduced so reasonable value.

    Scrambled eggs on toasted muffins for breakfast today.

    Lunch will be home made lentil soup.

    Supper will be home made tomato sauce over pasta and some parmesan cheese.
    Go forward with the vision even if no one else can see it!

    I had leftover pizza for breakfast.

    No idea what's for dinner, I can't put off going to the shop any longer to buy some food, but it's absolutely pouring with rain

    Ever since I had a slice of pie the other night it's been preying on my mind ... so tonight it's a slice of pie with some oven chips

    And gravy ....

    And I'll really enjoy it.

    It was a 550 gram deep filled pie, which I cut into four. Ate one part, froze three. So two down and two delicious dinners still to be enjoyed

    Last nights dinner was a bit of a hash

    Meatballs in a sauce made of tomatoes, chillis, peppers,olives,onions and leeks

    Was a sort of throw it in, taste and chuck something else in

    Served with noodles

    I didn't make it out to the shops, the rain has been relentless..

    I found a tube of pringles in the back of the cupboard so have just eaten the whole tube along with a tin of beans...

    I feel sick now

    Hi all,

    Suki - looking good - save me some...

    Finished paid work for the week, food shopping done, wanted something simple.

    I made a sweet and sour sauce, it's brown not red like the commercial jars, stir fried veg and sliced chicken and boiled some brown rice - a bag of Prawn Crackers too

    Should have used red pepper for colour, but yellow was what I had...

    Hatful - those baked apples look lush......

    Polly - DS has settled in fine thank you - I am getting regular calls asking how to make this n that, and commenting on the blog pics LOL He wants me to make some HM ready meals for him to take back when he visits and your having Kievs too LOL we must stop this food matching - we'll be like Harold and Hilda - bobble hats at the ready!

    We're having HM Chicken Kiev's with polenta chips and salad with a HM White Chocolate Panna Cotta with Raspberry coulis - KerrieGT- I've step by stepped the polenta chips just for you Hun x - if they fail again - I swear I'll post you some

    Yum, I went through a phase of these last winter - lovely nuked for a bit to warm it all up

    Been over in the US with work since Sat - apologies for the lack of pics - was too busy eating

    Quick rundown:

    Sat - dinner was a Cobb Salad
    Sun - pancakes for breakfast, pretzel for lunch and Tex Mex for dinner
    Mon - yoghurt for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch and then Italian for dinner - I had the special with shrimp, angel hair pasta, olives, artichoke hearts and a white wine & garlic sauce.
    Tues - bagel for breakfast, wraps for lunch and a lobster roll (yum yum!) for dinner before the red eye back.

    Dinner tonight was egg and soldiers.

    OH turn to be away with work tomorrow but not planned at all what I'm going to have for dinner yet.
