    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?

    We've just had fried eggs on toast, cooked by Mr LW; today has basically gone t*ts up, which left us running late, and me very stressed (and therefore feeling unwell) so he volunteered.
    We've yet to have dessert, which is HM choccie mousse that I managed to throw together this afternoon.

    Dinner tonight was Hairy Bikers Spanish chicken without the chorizo. Served with rocket and parmesan dressed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. It was delish and I shall certainly be making it again.

    Lunch today will be cheese on toast with a salad and supper this evening will be a veggie curry.
    Go forward with the vision even if no one else can see it!

    Yesterday we had Youngs Gastro 'lightly dusted' fish in lemon & herb.
    I'm not a big fish fan but try to eat it once or twice a fortnight, this was really tasty. Served with buttered new potatoes and garden peas.

    Tonight is a beef cottage pie base (from the freezer) with (for a change) sliced potato topping that I'll sprinkle with herbs and brush with olive oil. Served with savoy cabbage that I want to use up. And gravy.

    Back from Spain, so it was a quorn chilli from freezer topped with cheese.

    Loved the food we had when in Spain, lots of fresh fish and salads that I will try and copy now I am home but it's looking like it should be stews and casseroles on the menu.

    Hope you had a great holiday.

    We always come home from Greece fired up with menu ideas but the quality of our fruit & veg is sadly lacking compared to the fab tomatoes, aubergines, nectarines and cherries that we love over there.

    Coincidentally, tonight I'm cooking a dish we had many years ago in Turkey, no menu - you just pointed to what you wanted in the hot cabinet.

    We call it Turkish liver casserole/soup.
    Cubes of lamb's liver (that's why I like to buy liver in a lump rather than the slices you usually get in butchers) with green pepper, green chillies, chunks of potato, tin of chopped tomatoes, hot paprika, parsley, seasoning and enough stock to make it to the right consistency (thick soup or thin casserole) served in a bowl.

    We serve it with thickly sliced fresh bread with butter.
