    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 really fancy some kind of meaty pasta sauce tomorrow, not sure how that will work with OH being veggie, I have an ostrich burger in the freezer which was a bit bland cooked as it was so I'm thinking of desconsructing it into mince....ohhh...with courgetti spaghetti perhaps....

    today lunch will be some falafels with reduced fat hummus, gherkins, ripe tomatoes, olives, fresh courgette slices and bread for He Who Knows not me.

    Supper tonight will be pasta with low fat soft cheese and oil spray fried courgettes with masses of garlic, fresh basil and black pepper along with a salad as we've got a small courgette glut to dispose of. Still have some fruit salad left so pud will be that with 0% Greek yoghurt.
    Go forward with the vision even if no one else can see it!

    Lunch will just be a sandwich of some sort with a side salad.


    Dinner will be haddock in a tomato and sweet pepper sauce with new potatoes and steamed veg. Pudding will be a slice of lemon tart. I have a lot of lemons to use up and not a lot of room in the freezer so decided that that is a fairly light tangy dessert for this weather.

    Mmm courgettes, I'm really beginning to like them myself. Had them last night with mange tout from the garden and peas, tossed in butter garlic and rosemary Very nice

    I wouldn't eat them for years because of terrible memories of over cooked marrow as a child


    Tonight it's BBQ chicken drumsticks, salads ( whatever I can throw together) and jckt spuds. Seeing as it's lashing down I think it's safe to say chicken is going to be oven baked

    Lunch today will be leftover risotto for me and pesto pasta for my little boy before he goes off to the childminder for his second settling in session.

    Dinner tonight is roast pork (from freezer), mash, roasties, veg and stuffing. Pudding will be banana loaf cake or sorbet. Despite the weather being warm and muggy, I do still love me a midweek gravy dinner

    Last night we had mushroom spaghetti: I saut!ed a shallot, garlic, mushrooms and herbs in a glass of red wine (from freezer!) and a tin of plum tomatoes. Once reduced, it was beautifully rich.


    Tonight we're taking DD to look around a local school so maybe beans on toast or veggie burgers and salad.

    I've got some cauliflower cheese soup simmering on the hob as I type for lunches for the next few days, I'll serve it at room temperature in this heat, mine with some cooked chicken and he Who Knows will have a sandwich with his.

    Supper tonight will be 'use up' so we're having some home made coleslaw from a giant 4kg cabbage I harvested from the polytunnel on Monday as it had split, some already cooked jacket potatoes that will be reheated and I'll make a crustless quiche to use up the last slice of ham and the tail end of a pack of cheese from the fridge. A fat free yoghurt for pudding and a cup of black coffee to finish with.

    I had Greek yoghurt and berries for breakfast. Too hot for anything else.


    Lunch will be a sandwich of some sort if I am hungry.


    Dinner is a grilled lamb rump steak with salad. Far too hot here to have anything other than the grill on for a short time. Pudding will be a slice of cake from the freezer.

    We had a fruit/oats/spinach smoothie for breakfast. Lunch is a bacon baguette and tonight we're having a treat of sirloin steak, chips, onion rings, roasted tomatoes, peas, grilled mushrooms and peppercorn sauce.

    I will probably just have a Quorn chicken fillet with a big salad and maybe make some garlic bread as I have half a leftover baguette in the freezer.

    Last night we had mushroom spaghetti: I saut!ed a shallot, garlic, mushrooms and herbs in a glass of red wine (from freezer!) and a tin of plum tomatoes. Once reduced, it was beautifully rich.

    Mmm, sounds nice, I might make that when the weather cools down.
