    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?

    Well, it changed - as I suspected it might.

    2 x Lidl Bakery Tomato & Chilli Foccacia - very moreish!
    (A new addition to the offerings, at 69p each very hard to turn down: and a lot more filling than £1.38 spent on a takeaway. )

    Fish from the freezer - either in batter or breadcrumbs or 'lightly dusted' (whichever I find first) - home-made wedges and mushy peas. OH might demand beans and that's OK as he could have the other half of the tin with pie and mash that I've got planned for later and I could have the other half of the peas.

    I'm off in to the City on the bus this morning to get a couple of pairs of 'zip off at the knee' walking trousers and a swimsuit for our holiday so lunch will be easy, falafels, hummus, olives, vine tomatoes, fresh courgette batons (and bread for He Who Knows as well) and supper this evening will be out as we're using up a credit card at the pub we won in a quiz last year and having a meal out with my brother and my lovely sister in law, how good is that?
    Go forward with the vision even if no one else can see it!

    As it's a wet miserable day here I want something warming. I've got some mince out of the freezer and will make spaghetti and meatballs in some sort of a sauce. It will probably be something tomato based with chilli. I'll go through the fridge and see what veg is in there and needs using up and throw that in as well.


    Pudding will be a scone or some biscuits.

    Don't know what to make.

    Have loads of spuds, mushrooms, red cabbage, onions, peas, veggie sausages.

    I'm thinking of making mini thyme and garlic roasties, braised red cabbage, veggie sausages, and then frying onions and mushrooms and making a red wine gravy. So I guess a sort-of roast?

    I'm flying to the US alone for ten days on Friday so tomorrow night needs to be a 'special' dinner. Loathe to get a takeaway...need to think of a vegan treat meal that DD will like. Hmmm...

    German Red Cabbage and Apple with jacket potatoes and veggie sausages with onion gravy is a meal made in heaven (and if you're lucky your kitchen).

    It's going to be soup and a cheese toastie here tonight. We always used to have soup and a sarnie one evening a week, but over the last few months it seems to have stopped happening, so I'm planning on bringing it back.

    I adore red cabbage (I sometimes have it in my mashed potatoes, especially if I'm having sausages ) but Why? Oh Why? do all recipes have to include apple?

    I'm one of those people who don't think sweet and savoury go together.
    Pork and apple sauce? No thanks.
    Turkey and cranberry sauce? I'll pass on that.
    Gammon & pineapple? Yuk

    We've had hm roasted tomato and red pepper soup for lunch, with wholemeal bread and some cheese. Tonight we're having chicken curry, which is currently simmering away in the SC, with rice - probably fruit salad to follow.

    POLLYCAT you can leave the apple out and it still tastes wonderful, the red wine vinegar and onion cook down with the cabbage to a lovely rounded flavour if you add in caraway seeds and cook it long and slow for a few hours, it's even better the next day and a few subsequent days after that.....wonderful stuff!!!

    That is one of my *favourite* meals! Sometimes we have the braised red cabbage with mash, sometimes with jackets. It's good even without veggie sausages but best with

    For dinner I'll either be making courgettes and parsley with rice (I know that sounds crap, but it's delicious actually, flavoured with garlic, paprika, flat leaf parsley and cumin) OR dahl and bengali-style green beans, again with rice.

    We had Yorkshire puddings, best I have made in a longtime. I think because I made the batter the night before and left it in the fridge, with roast potatoes, ratatouille, cauliflower and broccoli cheese, gravy and the meat eaters had sausage, and chicken wrapped in bacon.
    I really enjoyed it and lots of bits used up from the fridge.

    I had a change of mind yesterday and did bangers and mash so this ^^^^ is for today.

    Had 90% pork sausage from Iceland but found the skins quite tough.
    Lidl seemed the same when we tried them so I may go back to my original brand.
