    What are you making for dinner tonight? 20th Jun 17 at 12:15 AM
    Am I imagining it?
    My post count has gone down significantly and this thread seems to have disappeared, is this a coincidence?

    What's happened?

    I'm just about to start cooking 'spicy fried potato curry with paneer cheese and peas' (Rick Stein's recipe).

    Or maybe more accurately 'aloo matar paneer masala'.

    New recipe for me.
    Might have to text OH to call for a takeaway if it all goes awry.

    Green thai curry tonight with butternut squash and quorn in it. Served with rice. I've got a tub of paste that has lasted (bb was 2015) - one scoop left for another curry then i might need to invest in another.

    Bought some Stilton and rosemary vegetable crisps earlier from L!dl but not sure I 100% am keen on them, then made myself feel rather sick pigging 75% of the bag

    Butchers low fat sausages, baked tomatoes, mushrooms and oven Ďfriedí potatoes. Stewed apples and custard. Not impressed with the sausages, will not be buying anymore. They tasted ok but were very tough to cut and had a very strange texture.

    Tonight I made vege toad in the hole and husband had a pork chop. Served with mash, parsnips, carrots ( served whole simmered slowly for 40 mins tom kerrigeish style, trying to decide a Christmas dinner style) broccoli and sprouts.

    I was reading the thread about what we used to eat and I remembered my dad would make the yorkshire pudding batter in a jug, when he had poured the batter into the tins and there was just the remnants of the batter around the side of the jug and the bottom, he would use this to make gravy.
    So that's what I did, poured on hot water and gravy granules and mixed and then wished I hadn't, was it really that bad? I ended up sieving out the lumps and adding more water and granules, just to make it edible.

    Really enjoyed the afore-mentioned paneer curry.

    Tonight will be home-made burgers.
    I have 2 different sorts already mixed (but not pressed) in the freezer.
    Both beef mince (5% fat) but one with Dijon mustard & oregano and one with horseradish & mixed herbs.
    It depends which bag I find first.

    Will serve on a bun (it's the only time we eat white bread as OH insists burgers have to be on those white pre-sliced buns) with sliced tomato and gherkin and home-made wedges.

    Just bought a new non-stick Prestige large roasting tin that I'm using for my wedges - it's fab!

    Nothing tonight - out in London, and tomorrow night we're all out too. But tomorrow morning I think I'm going to whip up a spiced carrot soup, and a big lentil shepherdless pie, to see us through the weekend and some of the week. also have HM rhubarb compote jarred in the fridge so was thinking upside down rhubarb cake to slice and freeze for DH's lunches.

    Corned beef hash - made in the slow cooker yesterday.
    I've put 4 extra portions in the freezer.

    Will serve with Tiger bread, thickly cut and spread with real butter. It's a rare occasion that we use butter.
