    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 overdid things yesterday which has left me feeling decidedly poorly today, so it's lucky that dins tonight is the 2nd half of yesterday's quiche. As yesterday, Mr LW will microwave some spuds to go with it.

    I have beef stew in the fridge which I cooked in the slow cooker yesterday. Nice organic beef bought for a treat. I may turn it into a pie if DS comes for dinner tonight. There are new potatoes and some green beans from the allotment, peas and carrots. I made a Victoria sandwich earlier so hubby is pleased.

    Getting back to normal but it'll be bland to be on the safe side - chicken bits (drumsticks etc) and some side salad.

    I made a runner bean Thing for supper tonight, and it was delicious! I had a sudden massive runner bean glut (quite literally two big buckets full) to deal with yesterday so ....... I put several handfuls of beans through my bean slicer and cut them into short pieces, simmered them until tender, drained them and kept the water they were cooked in. Then in a big frying pan I gently fried some finely diced onion, green chilli and crushed garlic until soft then added some spices (garam masala, turmeric, paprika and cumin) plus a few black onion seeds which have been in the spice drawer for aaaaages. Added the beans. Made a thin batter from gram flour, a little curry spice, and the cold bean water.

    I cooked the pancakes one at a time, with a little of the spicy bean mix in the base of the pan topped with the batter, and fried until golden, flipping them half way through. Served with thick plain yogurt mixed with chopped mint from the garden, and a spoonful of brinjal (aubergine) pickle. Scrumptious!

    I've put a beef and root veg stew in the slow cooker. I'll serve it with mashed potato. It's a cold wet day here so I feel in need of comfort food.

    Cant remember if I posted yesterday and going back to look is far too difficult (I realise its not, its just the way I'm feeling today - half shut knife springs to mind)
    Last nights dinner at work was HM chick curry from the freezer.
    Lunch today was a wee drop of salad and a biscuit on the run and tonights dinner at work will be a cheese salad roll (maybe) with some HM veg and lentil soup from the freezer.

    Butchers sausages, mash and baked beans.

    Pud was rice pudding done in the slowcooker. The rice overcooked because I left it too long but we ate it with warmed jam and it tasted fine. Was not sure how long to cook for and went out shopping so it had about 5 hours on low. Will try again for a shorter time.

    I'm having a veg burger in a bun with ketchup and mustard for lunch with some HM coleslaw and the last of the cherry tomatoes.

    I might just open a tin of soup tonight as I'm feeling knackered.

    I have still more runner beans to use up - they are coming thick and fast now! - so tonight will be a Thai green bean curry. Actually the recipe I found says Sri Lankan green bean curry, but it looks kinda the same as Thai .....
