    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?

    It's finally going to rain hoorah, poor garden is in real need and it's blessedly cooler here but not actually cold. Food today will be Lunch - soup and chicken for me, a sandwich for him and supper this evening will be some Haddock and cheese fish cakes YS the Co-Op with new potatoes from the allotment and peas served with tartare sauce and a wedge of lemon. 99 calorie yoghurt and a cup of black coffee to finish.
    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!

    Forecast here is dire, rain all day and it's just started.

    Cauliflower cheese tonight. I'll add onions and some Dijon mustard to the cheese sauce.

    Turkey goulash for dinner today, I've just got that out of the freezer, served with some salad that needs using up and new potatoes. I would like it with veg but must use up the last of the salad bits because they won't last past today.

    Just two of us for dinner as DS has gone to Cardiff to see Coldplay. Dug a homemade veggie quiche out of the freezer, which we'll have with salad and jersey royals. Plum crumble, also from the freezer, for pud.

    Something with chicken as I just reached into the freezer and pulled out the first thing I came across

    No idea as to what, maybe a chicken casserole with courgettes, tomatoes , aubergines, olives ?

    Still waiting for it to rain here, my veg garden wishes it would hurry up!

    Lunch today was some homemade spicy butternut squash soup, and I have a pack of skinless boneless cod fillets defrosting for tonight's supper which will be cod in homemade parsley sauce with a little mashed potato and green veg of some kind. I still have rhubarb growing well, so have made a rhubarb and strawberry crumble (with added ground almonds and rolled oats in the crumble topping) for the next few nights' puds.

    After a long day / short night yesterday (though well worth it if the end result matches the start made!) I'm beset by the onslaught of severe CBA: currently have a STRONG coffee or 3 and a cigarette or 4 - I think I might just have a bath (almost the only totally usable room in the house) and an early (VERY early) night.

    Plans frequently change though - in a couple of hours I could be bouncing about like a demented Tigger.

    Lots of work to do tonight, so dinner was toast with baked beans, scrambled eggs and a bit of chorizo. Lunch was instant noodles!
    I got back from a trip on Sunday night and not had chance to go shopping yet, but glad I have lots of food in the freezer / cupboards!

    Well stretched page

    Dinner turned into an extremely mild madras, just a half teaspoon of chilli ( extra hot) and no fresh chillies. Very tasty actually , more fragrant rather then hot. Just right for this weather

    Quick and easy and enough left for tomorrow's lunch.
