    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?

    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.

    And we're having the squid as a starter tonight.

    Might make cakes for the Wales match just now.

    I'm trying out a lentil curry stew with lettuce cups and some avocado if they're ripe by this evening.

    Lunch today will be lentil, tomato and carrot soup followed by a fat free yoghurt and supper will be jacket potatoes with cheese and baked beans, stewed apple and plain skyr for pudding if wanted and our usual cup of black coffee to finish.
    Go forward with the vision even if no one else can see it!

    I ate so badly yesterday so I want a healthy meal for dinner tonight. I have some veggie chicken balls and I'm going to have them with steamed cauli, broc, peas, carrots and red onion gravy.

    Cheese & onion bread and butter pudding, using up a pack of garlic bread slices that I`d meant to use a couple of days ago, and a big (but lightly shaved to get to the white part!) lump of extra mature cheddar, and half a tin of `eazy onions`. Pint & half of full cream milk and 4 eggs (no sugar of course!) I`m letting it stand now to all soak in, then going to slice some tired tomatoes over the top and bake it.
    Will also use up some streaky bacon just crisp it up at the last minute.
    We`ve had sprouts for the last 3 suppers - I got exited as my magic greengrocer has sprouts on the stalk, so we`re having a night off greens!

    And so does this.

    Been out all day (since 08:30) seeing sis & Mum, then met OH in the pub for a couple of drinks.
    We were joined (without being asked) by a drunk who we knew slightly from many years ago who told us their tale of woe which was a bit tedious.
    On our way home for cooked roast chicken breast (thanks M&S for the bargain), new potatoes, Savoy cabbage, carrots & sprouts.
    It's my birthday (think of a Beatles song ) so I'll leave OH to cook & I'll lounge and catch up on TV.

    The very last from a pork belly roast from Sunday made into a stir fry with any veg in the fridge with the bulk being shredded cabbage. My favourite veg! An easy, cheap meal.

    Has anyone bought the new Markie meat box deal? £35. I went for it as I thought it worked out good value per kg for what you get:

    2 sirlion steaks
    2 fillet steaks
    4 Aberdeen Angus beef burgers
    2 pks x 400g Aberdeen Angus steak mince
    4 loin lamb chops
    12 veal meatballs
    200g of beef steak strips
    2 pork sambucca (sp?) pork chops.

    I reckon I can get 13 decent sized meat meals for 2 from that lot. Costing a lot less than my butcher order but then again he throws in freebies and does me unusual cuts when i ask ie oxtails.

    Picked it up today and have frozen it. I'll see what the quality is like as its used and have a good think about the implications of not getting the majority of my meat from the local butcher who sources local.

    I finished off a big bag of chocolate fingers .... because ... I can, I'm cool, I'm single and cooking for one, so can "eat what I like", as they say

    Chocolate fingers FTW.

    I do a version of these sometimes to "use up" too many tomatoes ... which I've often got! I was going to do it this week, but never got round to buying milk.... and, by the time I remember, I'll be out of eggs - and then I'll be back to my usual position of still being an ingredient or 3 short I do "tiny ones" as it's just me.

    I've got tons of onions and I've got cheese - and I'd eyed up the tomatoes a week ago and thought "you're going in ... soon" ... but not bought milk since the last week of September.

    Spaghetti with meatballs in homemade tomato sauce for dinner. Garlic bread for hubby and side plate of salad for me.

    Working from home so I'll be treating myself to PN style fish fingers in a lettuce wrap ��

    I've become very fond of skyr yoghurt so bound to have some with fresh blueberries at some point for a snack.

    Skyr is fab isn't it? it was the delight of breakfast when we were in Iceland this summer, huge unlimited bowls of it and loads of fresh fruit to top it with followed by a topping of Filmjolk ( translates as sour milk) which is a softly gentle 'almost' yoghurt but of a consistency similar to custard.....Ohhhhhhh yummy!

    Lunch today will be more of the lentil, tomato and carrot soup with chicken for me and a ham sandwich for He Who Knows.

    Supper this evening will be breaded lemon sole, mashed potatoes and peas with lemon and some tartare sauce. Blueberries and skyr for pudding, and a cup of black coffee to finish.
