    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 had banana on toast as I was still on calls when he got in.
    I had some pasta mixed with a few halved LO tomatoes and grilled a burger I'd defrosted and chopped that in it. Inexpensive (pasta is aeons old from when Asda sold off lots of end of line stuff - it's the kids size and OH doesn't like it much so I just use it up as and when, it's also good for pasta salad) Managed to have two portions LO too so they're in the freezer.

    Breakfast for dinner here too! As we just had this last week we tweaked it ...although we all love it so any way it comes is always a winner.

    Bacon medallions, ys sausages, mushrooms, plum toms, scrambled eggs and spinach. Last of the leftover burger rolls (from the chicken burgers) for ds and a wrap for hubby.

    Yesterday we had chicken thighs with chestnut mushrooms, onions, tomatoes and aubergine in the slow cooker.

    Am not sure yet what today will bring, I'm not going shopping in the rain so it might be something out of the freezer.

    Last night was chicken goujons , jacket spud and salad

    Tonight is cottage pie and beans as the weather has turned for the worse
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    Lunch today is more soup from the freezer, this time it's tomato and basil. Tonight we're having a bit of a fridge clearance dinner: eggs, bacon and tomatoes with fried tinned new potatoes and baked beans.

    Friday - leftovers from Thursday with rice and refried beans as there are no more taco shells. Last of the satsumas/apples with a cuppa in the evening.

    Today - Already working on cup 2 from the cafetiŤre. Must be the weekend!
    B/fast: Beans on toast for ds, porridge for everyone else.
    Lunch: Prawns out to make some special weekend sarnies with 'pink sauce'.
    Dinner: Hubby ds and dd will eat at an annual award ceremony/buffet for ds's weekend club. I'll just be having a diet coke because I'm heading straight on to my work bash at a lovely local hotel from there.

    Happy Saturday!
