    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.

    Hiya!!! Mon enfant and her enfants have gone home this morning, the floor has been rediscovered, the beds are stripped and the washing is hung up and Oma is very blissfully happy BUT entirely shattered!!! He Who Knows is down at Cookie dogs pub collecting some scrounged wood (they are taking down some trees and cutting up a couple of big pub garden tables so free firewood is NEVER neglected in this house!!!) which will fill up a couple of cradles in the wood pile for next winter.

    Lunch will be leftovers of salad, some chicken parmigiana from the other day, the tail end of a pack of ham and if he wants it some bread for He Who Knows.

    Supper tonight will be vegetable Balti, saag aloo, lentil dahl and wholemeal chapattis with 0% Greek yoghurt and lime pickle.
    Go forward with the vision even if no one else can see it!

    Some people use words to reflect who they want to be, but actions ALWAYS show who they really are!

    48 hours of low fibre foods for OH prior to "an investigation" first thing on Monday, so roast chicken, green beans and carrots tonight with potato for him and none for me. Tomorrow is to be pan fried Hake with the same veggies.

    I have made a GF loaf which actually tastes like bread and will even go crispy when toasted - pure heaven, so mention of fish finger or crisp sandwiches sound like manna from heaven to me, I will partake over the weekend, note to self add crisps to shopping list.

    Karcher I love crustless quiche or anything frittata ish. Alas they always stick to the pan / dish no matter how I grease or line with paper...grrrr. How do you get it out without sticking?

    I made haddock goujons, oven baked with lemony tartre dip, lots of chopped pickled gherkins in it too. Think I liked the dip more than the fish, boy are gherkins addictive Big salad and homemade red coleslaw on the side. Hubby got spicy wedges with his. I wanted them so badly but managed to control myself.

    This giving up tatties for lent is torture

    Tomorrow night's treat meal is chicken satay. I've found a nice Indonesian style recipe for the marinade and sauce. Will serve with stir fry veg and white rice (living on the edge I am ) .

    Hubby has mentioned he's not had crumble or sponge pud since Xmas..gosh I can feel that 2 pounds returning if I give in to him

    And I always do give in

    Not a huge appetite today. I made myself three savoury pancakes with bacon, as promised.
    Halfway through eating them I had a sudden yearning for sweet pancakes. So the last large pancake was eaten dusted with sugar and moistened with lemon juice. Main course and dessert in one dish.

    Using a voucher to get fish & chips for tea tonight. Two for 12 (saving about 5) so I don't feel too bad!

    I've just had cheesy scrambled eggs with jalapeno chillis, on toast. With tomato sauce. Very nice! I liked it anyway!

    Second person i've explained what it is to tonight bascially bubble and squeak-esque with cheese...what's not to love

    Regarding crustless quiches - I make the one from here that went round a while ago (aka impossible pie) and use an oval pyrex dish well greased - never had any issues with it sticking.

    this is the version that was passed onto me here

    Slight variation on impossible quiche that I feel I must pass on as it was given to me on here by Gintot


    "Impossible quiche recipe from Hartcliffe Health and Environment Action Group otherwise known as "throw it together self crusting pie"

    Ingredients serves2
    2eggs beaten
    60g grated tasty cheese
    1/2 small onion, chopped
    2 rashers rindless bacon, chopped
    50g self raising flour
    120 ml skimmed milk (I use semi)
    sprinkle dried herbs
    freshly ground black pepper
    100g of your choice chopped mushrooms, peppers, cherry toms, courgettes, sweet corn, peas, beans, grated pumpkin etc.


    Method
    Preheat oven to 180. Spray a medium quiche dish or similar with baking spray.
    Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Pour into the prepared dish and bake for 30-35 minutes until set and golden brown.

    I make it in advance and serve at room temperature. Often for three so I round the amounts up. My preferred filling includes peppers, mushrooms and smoked bacon."
