    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?

    Homemade pork beef and stuffing meatballs with creamy mushroom sauce. A little tagliatelle to pad it out and make it look good on the plate.

    Puffed up a bit now. Was very nice.

    I cooked a chicken and jacket potatoes and made a salad, we were all in at different times so it was a simple solution.

    Lunch today will be the lemon sole we should have had for supper last night in a 'posh' fish finger sandwich, we neither one of us wanted supper as we're full of cold still.

    Supper tonight be chipolatas, sweet potato oven fries and peas.
    Go forward with the vision even if no one else can see it!

    No amount of regretting can change the past, and no amount of worrying can change the future!

    I'm making a risotto tonight, with some LO chicken bits from the weekend's roast, leeks, mushrooms, peas and a grating of parmesan. Yum.
    I'll make enough for tomorrow as well, I'm going to a conference so might be back late. Lunch included though

    I put a beef joint in slow cooker last night with a thin cup of gravy and stock, tasted it and its nice but now not sure what to do with the stock/gravy


    Don't have any veg to put in, do have some potatoes though before I serve it, also have some dumpling mix (just add water)

    Tonight's dinner is a spicy bean chilli batch cooked thing I discovered in the freezer, with rice and 1/4 head of cabbage that needed using up. It was yum! I have another portion in the freezer and more cabbage to use up so might just repeat the same meal tomorrow night...

    Basa fillet with HM chips and mushy peas for me tonight. Husband is on a fast day (he's doing 5:2) and so I'm taking advantage and having fish, which he isn't too keen on.
