    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?

    Oh my slobby dinner compared to everyone else, sausages (good ones) in batter homemade, chips and mushy peas for who wanted. With southern fried gravy from a box.....or tomato ketchup up to them.

    I liked it clean plates.

    I bless my small freezer! A couple of months ago I had a beautiful gammon joint all ready to cook for a family dinner when a minor domestic disaster put paid to it. Vac-packed in the freezer, it has lasted beautifully until today when they are all coming to enjoy it.
    Marinated celeriac 'steaks' for the veges - first time I have tried AnnaJones recipe, so fingers crossed!

    Corned beef hash last night was yummy.

    Out all day today so will pick up a takeaway on our way home.

    Tonight is chicken breasts in a tomato based sauce with onions, mushrooms & courgette, new potatoes and green beans.

    Jackieann I will look up your celeriac recipe, it’s one of my favourite veg - thank you

    Haggis pushed to tomorrow as DS was making faces when I mentioned it - fussypants

    We're having a scallop salad at lunchtime as DH loves that. Main meal will be a bacon pasta to use up some stuff in the fridge.

    last night OH wanted his quorn cottage pie early so I didn't bother with the mash.
    I had a portion of frozen lamb casserole with green beans (on offer from lidl) and fried up a few sad looking mushrooms. It's was stewing lamb from Asda which I wouldn't buy again, very fatty and not much meat for the weight (most weight fat or bone)

    Mrs LW - a quiche with that cream leaves me drooling!
    Hubby is off today!
    Pot of coffee with a satsuma & apple whilst waiting for ds & dh to make it downstairs.
    B/fast: Bacon medallions, sausages, poached eggs, grilled toms, mushrooms & toast.
    Lunch: Last of the egg mayo from yesterday or ham in sarnies. Dh came home from work yesterday with a huge bag of crisps too, so those on the side.
    Dinner: DS asked for chicken burgers, so I've made some with lots of thyme and oregano. Will be served in hm soft rolls with slices of tomato. Cheese for ds and dd who love it.
    Pud: Slow cooker rice pudding.

    Celeriac steak went down very well indeed! I suspect the trick is the initial cooking (I steamed it) and the marinade.

    Just made spanakopita for the first time - it was marvellous! Can't believe I haven't made this before. Next time I'll add things like toasted pine nuts.

    Curry style stew.
    Butternut squash, some other squash, leek, courgette, garlic bulb, spinach. All fried in olive oil and then boiled with coconut milk and water. Lots of spices.
    Will feed us for several days.
    And some homemade nan bread.

    We're doing Gino tonight.

    From his current series:
    fusilli with aubergines, courgettes, pancetta, pesto and mozzarella.

    Recipe calls for a tin of cherry tomatoes but couldn't find one so I've faffed about de-skinning baby plum tomatoes.

    Hope it's good.
