    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 took some more of the reduced price vegi deli burgers out of the freezer this morning. They were reduced to 15p in H&B so I bought three packs.

    I'm going to have them with HM potato wedges, corn and HM coleslaw.

    Lunch was sausages (left overs to be frozen), scrambled egg, potato scones (pack reduced to 8p still some left in freezer) and baked beans (half tin in fridge to use up).
    Dinner tonight will be stir fry and noodles. Stir fry was reduced to 9p and shredded pork to 10p (both frozen at the time) so a nice cheap day all round

    Hi lazy me again!

    Home made veg soup from the freezer (where else I ask you!), and an amazing thing, home made brown soda bread baked fresh with extra mature cheddar. Miracles do happen.

    Having a choc ice for pud, from where? Yep the freezer of course!

    I'd knocked up some sweet chill beef kebabs recently, so I repurposed a couple of those into meatballs, tossed in a sweet chilli sauce and served on a bed of long grain rice ... not basmati as I chose long grain last time I needed rice, so I now have to eat long grain at 10 meals until that bag's finished and I can get back to my favourite basmati

    It was so lovely .... I really wish I'd cooked four portions and scoffed the lot from an oversized bowl until I thought I was going to explode. Unfortunately I did just cook "enough for one" ... so came away feeling delighted at how gorgeous it was, but wishing I was a piggy and had severely over-catered.
