    What are You Making For Dinner Tonight ? 2nd Jan 12 at 3:03 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.

    I popped out to the shops unexpectedly ... didn't need anything, but I was going a bit stir crazy I think.... and I appear to have arrived home with a bar of turkish delight chocolate, 6 jam/curd tarts and 3 mini cheesecakes ... and 2 bananas (guilt trip purchase).

    Thanks PN you've just remained me I need to buy a banana tomorrow.

    Had some LO veg with rice egg fried with soy sauce for lunch and a few spring roll bits as had early yoga. Also a slice of bread with peanut butter before going out, so really not that hungry now. Might have some picky bits later.

    I woke from an amazing dream of Chinese food, lots of dishes set in a rural Chinese village it had been a bit of a James Bond style Asian adventure before that!

    Last portion of hm fish pie out of the freezer last night with peas and tomatoes. A small portion hence the nocturnal hunger

    Tonight will be chicken fajitas (sp?) hm salsa and salady sides. No guacamole as I'm allergic to advocado.

    I have oxtail in the slow cooker for Sunday with root veg and red wine. Totally needs mash, so hubby can get some and I'll have extra kale with leeks. So looking forward to it

    Much better to go to the boozer first then pick up a Chinese take away on the way home imho ...though I'd rather have an Indian curry TA

    No dinner plans as yet. This morning I thought I'd have burgers in buns and salad but don't fancy that now...will see how I feel later

    We looked after DGS (2) all day as DD went to Cardiff to meet up with some friends from Uni.

    GF (SM) pizza loaded with extra mushrooms, tomatoes and cheese with a mixed salad, very tasty and eaten while watching the rugby. Lemon mousse for pud for me, nothing yet for OH, but he ate more pizza than me

    Husband had fish curry, made from hake and some mixed seafood and a ready made Goan sauce. I had a quorn curry out of a box. Side of Bombay potatoes made and frozen a few weeks ago. Popadoms and a chapati on the side. Not fab but it was ok and easy to make.

    I have diced lamb with onions, potatoes & tomatoes with garlic and various herbs (hope I haven't overdone the mint) in the slow cooker. I'll add flageolet beans when we get home.
