    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?

    met a friend for lunch and had pizza with caramelised onions and goats cheese so really not hungry tonight. Cup of tea most likely.

    Not sure how many we have for dinner tonight, between 3 and 5, depends if DD and her BF make it over, so I am making a Lamb Tagine with a half leg of lamb from freezer stash, it will also use up a couple of tins of chickpeas that appear to be multiplying in the cupboard and the last of the pickled lemons in the fridge - served with Cous Cous and HM flatbreads - any leftovers will become work lunches

    Today's menu: Lunch is beans on toast and dinner will be hm chicken curry (from the freezer), with brown rice and maybe some bombay potatoes. I have several tins of new potatoes in the cupboard and they're ideal for this.

    Think OH is veering towards a quorn cottage pie that's in the freezer. If he has that I'll prob have a portion of lamb casserole from the freezer and then perhaps make some additional mash for us both.

    It's a cooking day here. Got a pot of potato and leek soup on the go. Doing shakshouka for lunch, spanakopita for dinner, and a crustless veggie quiche for work breakfasts. DH is keeping out of the way and cleaning the kitchen as I go.

    Lasagne! First time in years so I hope I can do the cheese sauce right. Either way it should be tasty!

    Thank you Islandmaid and dingdongsaving; it's nothing that lupus going into remission (pretty please??) and someone hoiking the ruddy great BD out of my life won't cure.

    If Mr LW is able to get some delicious unpasteurised cream at tomorrow's farmers market, I'll make a cheese, tomato, onion and Qu0rn quiche for tomorrow's dins; otherwise it'll be veggie toad-in-the-hole with Marmite gravy.
    It all depends if Angela Jane (the cream lady) attends, as it's also the Olney Dickens Fair, and some stallholders don't go when that's on.
