    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?

    Really bad headache tonight so I went upstairs to have a nap. So why does husband come up to wake me and ask if I want to go out, get a takeaway or should he make dinner? Just dropped off again and my phone started ringing, have I had an accident that wasn't my fault?

    I gave up, went downstairs, husband had made himself fish and baked beans. He offered to make me something I settled on a tuna and cucumber sandwich and a packet of wheat crunchies.

    Lunch today will be more of the cauliflower cheese soup I made yesterday with chicken for me and a sandwich for He Who Knows and supper tonight will be breaded lemon sole fillets, oven 'fried' already cooked new potatoes from the allotment, oven tomatoes, peas, tartare sauce and lemon followed by berries from the garden and allotment and some 0%fat Greek yoghurt and a cup of black coffee.
    Go forward with the vision even if no one else can see it!

    No amount of regretting can change the past, and no amount of worrying can change the future!

    Lunch today will be an omelette to use up all the odds and ends in the fridge. I know there are some mushrooms and a red pepper in there amongst other things.


    Dinner will be a grilled salmon fillet with some salad. I will make a dressing to go with it. At the minute I've not decided what sort of dressing I fancy at the moment, I will probably decide nearer the time

    I'm not cooking tonight.

    The local pub has some new items on its menu so I may be tempted to eat there

    Or I might be tempted to get Chinese

    But what normally happens we decide

    a) whilst the food in the pub is very good, it's never as good as my cooking so I never really enjoy it
    b) Chinese will make us thirsty all night and give us heartburn

    So we end up with toasted sandwiches

    In fact the only ice creams I'd like more would be lime curd or ginger curd.

    Tonight we're having baked Camembert with salad and some artisan bread to mop up the extra virgin olive oil I brought back from Greece.
    Although I'm trying to cut my alcohol units down (my total for the last week Saturday to yesterday was 16.6 units ) I think I'll have to have a glass of chilled white wine with it.

    We do this ALL the time with Chinese take-away! It's expensive, not as good as our homemade kung pao chicken & will make us feel bloated! Glad to hear it's not just us

    We got YS posh brioche buns for 25p last night so have halved some chicken breasts and will do burgers. Mine is marinating in paprika and chilli to be bbq'd with fresh pineapple for a Hawaiian burger, gf's is marinating in homemade chilli & peach marinade for a spicy Mexican burger with leftover Guacamole.
    Will serve with skewered jersey royals also cooked on BBQ & some tinned sweercorn

    As previously mentioned, Friday = Fakeaway day: being logical it follows that Saturday = steak day.

    Steak (rare), broccoli spears, mushrooms, jacket potato & garlic butter followed by raspberry ripple ice cream & black coffee.
