    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 have some skinless boneless haddock fillets for tonight's supper, and am still debating whether to oven roast them or poach them in milk. Either way, they will be served with sweet potato mash and some of the never ending courgettes from the garden.

    Pud will be another slice of the lemon sponge/cream/fruit thing I made yesterday (cor it was nice!)

    The men had a Chicken and Mushroom pie from the local butcher with mash, peas and gravy.

    I will have Chicken Salad for supper, as I wasn't hungry at lunch Hubby will have some too no doubt, if I can keep him away from the meringues I made yesterday

    A friend of our supplies us with eggs most of the year, and I bake them some things in return this week was Meringues and Lemon Curd and hubby keeps 'testing' them

    Have now 'hidden' these for friends

    Dinner will be oven chips and battered cod with some mushy peas. It needs to be quick and easy today because I’m out this evening. I bought the cod when it was on a good offer a while back and had forgot it was in the freezer.

    Lunch will be a tuna salad sandwich. I have a tinned tuna mountain that I need to work my way through.

    Dinner tonight will be hm steak and mushroom pie with new potatoes, carrots, green beans and peas. I didn't think it would be so warm today! DS is eating with us tonight so I like to do something substantial.

    Meat Free Monday here

    Quite chuffed to use Homegrown Aubergine, Courgettes and Rocket leaves to make Papoutsakia - oven baked Aubergine with a spiced Veg and tomato sauce and mozzarella topping - it was lush - due to the loss of our previous thread, I can't remember who mentioned 'little shoes' - but thank you, the veggie version was delicious x
