    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?

    When I got in from work I was starving, so I had a slice of banana bread and some crisps and a caramel wafer. So I wasn't hungry. Husband had oven fish, chips and mushy peas.
    Later on I had a slice of cheese on toast.

    I'm going out for the day, having a wander round a few charity shops then meeting OH for a few drinks.

    When we get off the bus home we'll pick up a takeaway of some description.

    Omelettes and salad for lunch today as I have some eggs need to be used and supper this evening will be for me a beetroot, kale and quinoa burger and He Who Knows a quarter pounder beef burger in some brioche buns I got YS at the Co-Op with some sweet potato oven wedges made with oil spray. Usual yoghurt and some berries for pud and a cup of black coffee.

    I’ve bought some sausages to make a toad in the hole with today. I will have that with some mixed veg and roast potatoes. Pudding will be either strawberries or raspberries with cream.

    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.

    Red peppers stuffed with mashed mixed tinned beans, saut!ed onion, garlic and tomato, herbs and grated cheese then oven roasted. Oh yes, and I added some grated courgettes to the mixture too as I have a bit of a glut!

    For pud I've made a tray of lemon sponge, smothered it in thick cream and topped with rows of blueberries, sliced strawberries and kiwi fruit.

    Parents drove over for a visit with my sisters, so we had pub lunch out today. I figured we'd still be quite full up so we've got leftovers from last night's dinner - had a ready roasted chicken from Tesco, stripped all the meat off and we had it with freshly baked baguettes, a few McCain potato wedges, and a big green salad. Tonight I'll just have a chicken sandwich, DH might use the chicken to make a chicken salad, and I can cook some frozen sausage rolls if we want to fill in the gaps!

    Home made soup for lunch today with a couple of hard boiled eggs for me and a sandwich for He Who Knows and supper tonight will be some YS Pork Steaks which I'll bat out until they're flat and make schnitzles with them, we'll have them with new potatoes from the allotment and courgettes, green beans and cabbage from the garden. Mixed berries from various plots with 0%fat Greek yoghurt for pudding and a cup of black coffee too!

    I'm going to use a turkey breast fillet and make a creamy mushroom and pepper sauce. I have an onion that needs using and some garlic and just enough cream left over from another dish that needs using up and have that with either pasta or rice.

    Pudding will be a slice of bakewell cake.

    Today is a fend for yourself day, as there's all kinds of bits that need eating, but not enough to create a coherent meal for three. So, I have had a sausage sandwich for brunch and will have soup and a small portion of leftover risotto for tea. The current Mr Badger is having meatballs and chips for his tea, and has had cereal for both breakfast and lunch. The female offspring had a chicken and mushroom slice for breakfast, cereal for lunch and will have half a pizza for tea.
