    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?

    On this miserable day, I'm serving bouyiourdi and melitzanosalata (spicy hot cheese dip and aubergine dip) with a side salad, kalamata olives and some thick crusty bread and a bottle of crisp white wine and we'll pretend we're sitting on our balcony in Greece.

    The ultimate in wishful thinking.

    Roast chicken plus all the trimmings for us tonight. I bought a much smaller chicken than I would usually do as it was YS to £2 but it looks like there'll be enough meat left over to make a chicken and sweetcorn pie (which will feed us for two meals) and at least one more dish (I'm thinking chicken fried rice) plus the obligatory pan of stock for soups this week.

    Lunch today will be the last of the parsnip and horseradish soup with a ham sandwich for He Who Knows and some chicken for me.

    Supper tonight will be Spicy chick peas with sweet potato and wilted spinach and basmati rice. Peach crumble for pud if wanted with 0%fat Greek yoghurt and a cup of black coffee to finish.
    Go forward with the vision even if no one else can see it!

    Liver, bacon & tomato casserole with mashed potatoes.

    I bought a big lump of lamb's liver yesterday weighing almost 3lbs so it will make another dish later this week and I'll pop the remaining third in the freezer until next week. I don't like to leave liver in the freezer for very long.

    I've cut the liver up, my kitchen looks like a scene from Hammer House of Horror.

    Home made beef broth (loaded with barley & lentils), crispbread & cheese, followed by the remains of the weekend cheesecake.

    The broth will be the main feature for the next 3 days: I never freeze it as I think it improves with re-boiling.

    (My menu is fairly boring consistent Mon to Thurs - home made broth or packaged soup + nibbles)

    Witless The broth sounds great, just right for this time of year

    Shepherds pie here from LO roast lamb, cheesy leek top for me, spud top for men with whatever Veg is lurking in the fridge.

    Men can finish off the Apple sponge with cream or I might treat them to proper custard, depending on the milk situation

    Lunch today will be omelettes with cheese and ham and a green salad and supper tonight will be some Hungarian Goulash from the freezer, pasta and steamed greens. Pud will be a 99 cal fat free yoghurt and a cup of black coffee finish.

    Lunch today is the last of the butternut squash/cheesy rice concoction I made for last night's dinner. Perfect comfort food for a miserable day, although my work colleagues may not like me having it as it contains a couple of crushed cloves of very fat juicy garlic. Oops. Luckily I keep toothpaste at work

    Tonight it's a chicken and sweetcorn puff pastry pie from the remnants of Sunday's roast, served with steamed green beans from the garden. There are enough ripe autumn-fruiting raspberries in the garden for pud too, nom nom.
