    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?

    Came home from holiday late last week so trying to get back into the swing.

    Simple dinner tonight of spaghetti, olive oil, garlic and parmesan with a bottle of crisp white wine.

    I used stuff up etc. Made a swede/spud mash topped chicken pie.

    I'd cooked a chicken breast at the weekend, so still had a TON of that to get through - used 50 grams of that (barely a dent then) ....

    I had the remainder of a bag of spuds I bought about a month ago that needed using up.

    I'd bought a swede that needs to be eaten - pie's used about 1/8th of that.

    So, it was chicken/peas/white sauce, topped with swede/spud mash and baked. With chips ... although there was no need for those, but I wanted "something else on the plate, not just a pie".

    Time for a major economy drive here until I can find a new job, so will be eating as cheaply as possible for a while.
    Tonight I'm going to make a Shepherd's (ish!) Pie, using some RTC turkey mince, carrots, mushrooms and casserole mix. Mashed potato on top and some frozen green beans on the side. It's a bit pack of mince so I should be able to freeze a good few portions.

    Just set off a chicken, mushroom, onion, peppers, potato & tinned tomato casserole in the slow cooker.

    Will add some diced chorizo halfway through for a smoky taste.
