Had chicken fajitas with heaps of side salad last night which was so simple but totally and utterly scrumptious

Tonight I'm cooking my favouritest ever dinner (OH and DD3 favourite too!)...

Ginger pork and dauphinoise pototoes

The ginger pork was a recipe I found in a 1.99 recipe book last year and it's now my speciality!! lol

I was super organised last night. Have veg and spuds prepared and pork is marinading, so just need to switch on the cooker/oven when I get home and get the heat going!

Oh I can't wait! Mouth watering

We're having left over HM chicken korma from the freezer - trying to run it down (like a few other people's posts - also seems to be never ending - at this rate it'll be switched off for the whole time we're away at Christmas!)

Still on the ham butties...I refuse to waste the YS meat even if it has gone past the date on the lable. It looks, smells and tastes ok. And is in a fridge that is at the correct temperture.

May do a meal later, ham, baked beans eggs, mushrooms and chips.

May open a can of rice pudding afterwards.

Similar to previous meals I mentioned earlier in the week.

Then perhaps I can do something else over the weekend.

We're having tea at my mum and dad's tonight. :-)

Made a large quantity of meatballs today though, so have some in the fridge for tomorrow's tea and another meal's worth in the freezer.

Have been trying to use the soup up from the freezer so I had a portion for lunch today... and yesterday...

Aubergine sliced length ways, roasted off in the oven, then putting lots of cheese on top of them and finishing them off under the grill served with soya mince done in a pepper and tomato based sauce.

Lots of weird and wonderful meals for the next 2 weeks as I use up what is in the freezer ready for lots of Christmas leftovers lol!

mmmmm chilli..

They always make me hungry and if someone was cooking them for me that would be lovely but cooking for one I do tend to go for the simple and easy meals. I have the best of intentions but then they tend to go by the wayside.

Default Rack of Lamb

Changed our Meal Plan today after noticing a Rack of Lamb sitting in the freezer begging to be eaten.



With the Rack of Lamb we had root mash, consisting of potatoes, swede, carrots, butter and parmasan cheese also a medley of vegetables made up of brussel sprouts, broccoli and cabbage, served with lots of gravy.

Made a beef stew yesterday and was planning on making pie with it today but the puff pastry in the fridge had gone off - a very unappealing grey colour and covered in black specks.
So we had stew, chips, peas and y puds.

Found some very nice looking stewing beef in the freezer (which I am desperate to empty!) so I am going to make a simple stew and serve it with rice.
