    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 had some rice leftover, so I got out some LO curry from the freezer. It turned out it wasn't a curry, but a rather disappointing bolognese that I had intended to make into a lasagne or something to make it more appealing. Ah well.

    I've had a right scoffathon today, which included a running foodfest of:

    Toast.
    A faux Marathon bar
    A sponge pudding
    2 hot sausage rolls
    Cheeseburger with chips.

    Healthy? There was a tiny bit of zest in that sponge pudding (probably 2 pieces) .... and 1/100th of a tomato in that ketchup.

    Bovvered? What do you think?

    Back from the last of the current round of Grandpickle sittings and determined to start on emptying the freezer and using up the store cupboard before we get to moving house.

    Supper this evening will be steak pie using a tin of stewed steak and some frozen short crust pastry, mashed potato and steamed carrots and savoy cabbage along with some gravy. He Who Knows has asked for an apple crumble so I'll make one but with stevia not sugar to sweeten and with half crumble mix and half rolled oats on top.
    Go forward with the vision even if no one else can see it!

    Meeting friends later, so I'm having a lazy tea of oven chips, chicken dippers and baked beans.
    I've been shopping this morning so I'm off to do a meal plan for the week full of healthy and tasty meals

    Vegetable curry with a freebie donated butternut squash, potatoes and some tinned butter beans. Cheap meal. Butternut squash is so under-rated as a vegetable and you really don,t misss not having any meat in it.

    Fruit salad and yoghurt afterwards.

    We almost kept to our meal plan this week. It went awry when I got home much later than planned last night so we had a takeaway. Last night's chicken meal has become tonights dinner, and the duck stir fry will find its way on to next week's menu now.

    Last night we had meatballs in tomato sauce with penne and garlic bread. Haven't bought garlic bread in ages, forgot how much I love it!
