    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?

    Dinner tonight was beef stew and dumplings cooked in the slow cooker, with green beans. Was delicious.

    Lemon, ginger & rhubarb are a match made in heaven.
    Although I think I might have been watching too much GBBO.

    Lunch today will be baked bean soup with chicken for me and toast for He Who Knows and supper this evening will be shepherds pie with peas, carrots and sweetcorn followed by some stewed apple sweetened with stevia and plain skyr. Cup of black coffee to finish.
    Go forward with the vision even if no one else can see it!

    I'm making a big veggie roast dinner today for lunch. I usually do it about 4pm so I will just have something small around 12, maybe a cup of soup.

    I've had my breakfast porridge with ginger jam stirred into it.

    Lunch will be a corned beef and beetroot sandwich on a granary roll.
    This is our family's favourite sandwich - Mum, Dad, sister, niece, nephew - we all love it.

    Dinner will be chicken goulash (cooked in the slow cooker) with tagliatelle.

    Staring at the fridge and trying to decide what to cook tonight - I went out for a run earlier (following a 3-4 mile walk with the parents) so have spent the afternoon collapsed on the sofa with half a packet of biscuits. Unsurprisingly, I'm not terribly hungry now! Think dinner might be salad, homemade chips and some vegan nuggets to avoid exerting any effort...

    Dinner tonight is leftover beef casserole, jacket potatoes, sprouts and peas. I made Devonshire scones today and a Victoria sandwich. I picked up some ys strawberries in M&S which were luscious, ripe, tasty and English. What a find for 80p! That's pudding sorted.

    Just me for lunch today as He Who Knows has taken my brother and himself off for a days fishing so I'll have a couple of boiled eggs and some bread and butter. Supper this evening will be what's left of the shepherds pie I made yesterday re-heated with the extra veg I cooked too.

    Tonight will be tuna risotto.

    I had a good haul from M&S reduced cabinet yesterday (I wandered in looking for sandals in the sale ) so I've got to re-jig my menu plan.
    Bought 4 cooked chicken breasts with a mushroom sauce, 2 Pembrokeshire uncooked chicken legs, uncooked pork medallions with a cider sauce, squid in a pepper and ginger tempura batter, meatball marinara pizza and an uncooked meatloaf with a vine tomato sauce. Just under £9.00 for the lot.

    Tonight we're having roast chicken, roasted sweet potatoes, savoy cabbage, carrots and green beans with sage, onion and lemon stuffing and gravy. Any leftover chicken will be frozen to make a pie or stir fry later in the week.

    Tonight is a portion of vegan bolognese from the freezer as I am trying to clear the freezer. Having it with roast potatoes rather than pasta as the pots need using up.

    Good M&S haul Pollycat!

    Dinner tonight is vegetable lasagne using up all the fridge bottom veg from last week, with green lentils in to provide protein. Garlic and oregano and the job's a good 'un.
