    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.

    Thanks Kerri gt, so the trick is the Pyrex glass dish! I've tried non stick pans and glazed ceramics. The only Pyrex I have would be the wrong size for a 2 person and leftover size... Now I have an excuse to add to my Pyrex collection

    That's what mine look like when they come out of the oven, but I can never turn it out on a separate plate to slice. Tastes lovely but always sticks.



    Alas, I've given in and crumbled a crumble mix. I'll buy some cooking apples or rhubarb tomorrow if I can find it. Hubby always gets his wicked way Never mind requesting custard! Naughty boy

    Fish & chips
    Chicken parmigiana with pasta and brocolli

    Lunch today will be salad with hard boiled eggs and a little grated cheese and supper tonight will be noodles with Pea and Bacon sauce with a dusting of grated parmesan and loads of fresh ground black pepper.
    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!

    If my husband has taken the pork steaks out of the freezer, dinner tonight will be pork steaks with some kind of rub (not sure which but I have several different mixes to choose from), probably served with chips and carrots and broccoli.

    I've still no idea - you see, the trouble is, I should've been born pretty. Pretty girls get taken out to dinner ... and don't have to work out what's for tea every day.

    I've got as far as dreaming up a cheese toastie - and eventually even dragged myself as far as the kitchen. I stood there, saw the bread, opened the fridge and saw the cheese, shut the fridge door, turned off the kitchen light and left the room. CBA.

    But I'm starving.... really hungry .... it hurts.... so now it's a battle between laziness and belly before I eventually give in and make that toastie (although I do have some biscuits if I really CBA still).

    PN - - you have been missed

    You have spawned a mini Crisp butty factory here

    I wasn't born pretty - I was born greedy

    I remember having a toasty maker back in the 80's - I spent more time with a scalded gob than I care to remember - Baked bean and cheese toasties

    Good to see you back on here PN, do you have anything you can quickly heat up? Don't want you becoming run down and unwell from not eating.

    Tonight we had Asda Indian takeaway I bought last week, cooked the rice myself and made IM flatbreads - getting better every time, this time I ran a little short of yoghurt so added a dollop of sour cream....seemed to work fine, two more to cook as they got stuck together when I was cooking the others and need re rolling.

    Realised the date on my chicken tikka was 7th march....whoops!

    EDIT: I eventually dragged myself through to the kitchen - thinking I had it all under control - bread in the toaster, grab grated cheese from the fridge ..OMG ...not enough cheese, so I had to get the s0ddin' grater out and grate a bit more.

    On the sofa now, cheese toastie and black coffee

    No cooking today.
    Had a lovely day out with my li'l sis in the city.

    I bought lunch which consisted of:
    Aloo Gobi. Tarka dhal, onion bhaji, lamb samosa, veg samosa, poppadom, raita & mixed pickle
    Beef in black bean sauce, egg fried rice & green beans in garlic sauce
    Mushroom masala (I missed this on my first pass) & garlic naan
    Mango ice cream & crushed meringue

    Washed down with 2 glasses of Shiraz

    I'll probably not eat for a week.

    Oh that's annoying when there isn't quite enough grated cheese. Glad that you had something to eat, we'd noticed you'd been a little quiet of late. I was missing your down to earth grub x

    Brekkie was porridge, lunch was a New Covent Garden Soup from Heron Foods (green veg one, very nice). Tea was bratwurst and Rooster wedges.
