    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.

    While I enjoyed last night's burger .... it was really, really, tasty .... I'm annoyed that I can't think of anything better today and/or CBA to drive out to a shop to buy anything better.

    I've got some soft white rolls, so I expect tonight's tea will be one of those rissole/burgers, in a bread roll, with some dried onions and a squirt of ketchup. A slice of cheddar might be added - if I can muster the enthusiasm to open the bag of cheddar to cut a slice off.

    I know I'll really, really enjoy eating it .... but CBA with facing 2 minutes of nuking from the freezer.

    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

    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it
