    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 wasn't sure whether to have one of the two portions left over from the spaghetti and meatballs I made for dinner yesterday again today, or to freeze those and have something different. I've decided to go for the half way option.


    As the meatballs and sauce are separate I'm going to have meatballs and spaghetti again today but make up a differenct sauce to go with them. I'm not sure what the sauce will be yet, but as I have a lot of mushrooms I think it will be something mushroom based

    Shepherd's pie for us tonight too. I made it with a sweet potato and carrot mash topping, and it's big enough for four portions so we'll finish it off tomorrow. Strawberries and cream for pud.

    Dinner tonight will be lentil & veg curry (basically dahl plus whatever veg needs using up and whatever spices I fancy) with basmati rice. Leftover curry will be blended to make soup for tomorrow's lunch.

    Yesterday’s plan for using up one portion of leftover meatballs by making up a different sauce went out of the window when I had a bit of a bad day. So I froze one portion and will make and Italian sauce to go with them today, and will probably have some cheese sauce over the top if I CBA to make it, because I quite fancy that.

    Lunch will be a sandwich of some sort but I’m not sure what yet. I will have a look at what needs using up.

    He Who Knows has a packed lunch again he and his fishing friend are off again to play with the Carp!!! I will have a chicken salad for my lunch as I have some cooked chicken that is needing to be used up. Supper this evening is going to be some Moroccan Koftas that I found in the vegan wholefoods shop when I was in the city earlier this week with lemon dressed green beans and carrots and a nice cous-cous salad with dried fruit, and Moroccan spices through it. 99 calorie yoghurt if wanted and definitely a cup of black coffee to finish with.
    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!

    Date Night here, so no cooking for me

    Will be making some Butter Pickles with Courgettes, as they are growing faster than we can eat them - will also pick and freeze coriander and basil before it 'bolts'.

    I had an IBS flare yesterday so dinner for me was a tin of soup, chicken and ham pie with veggies for OH, annoyed with myself as I burnt the top, first time reheating a pie in the Remoska, think it needed a foil hat, in my groggy state I just put a piece of silicon over it, live and learn

    No idea about tonight,but going to town so might invest a lot of dish in some gorgeous fish from our premium fish shop. So expensive, but the quality is sublime, our end of week treat

    Lunch today will be sarnies I think. Was meant to be baked pots but now have a green deals man coming at 12 to talk about my Windows and doors.
    Dinner tonight will be sc pea and ham soup that DS will be making. He's 10 and it's the holidays here so I've tasked him with cooking something once a week
    If I can give myself a shake (I've woken with a stinking cold) I might even make some rolls to go with the soup.

    Anyway, in the same shop yesterday, I found some......lemon and gin (yes, without the 'ger' ) yogurt.
    As I'm trying to cut down on my alcohol units, if I can't drink the stuff I'll eat it instead.
    Not low fat so I've not perused the back of the carton.
    Also same make in some low fat vanilla.
    Not tried it yet.

    Dinner tonight is pie (meat & potato for me, steak & ale for OH), mash and beans for him and mushy peas for me.
    A bit of a slob tea, really.
