    There were problems with the original thread in that it disappeared and could not be reinstated.

    So a new thread was created and we all started again, unfortunately that thread also seems to have joined it's predecessor.

    So here's a new one. We need to hear about Suki's lamb casserole and Island Maid is back from Amsterdam and must have delights to tell us about.

    Maybe if the old one can be found then this can be merged?

    Anyway without further ado...

    Tomorrow I think has been decided as pasta - using up the sauce i opened the other night.

    Tomorrow's lunch is sliced turkey from xmas (err, it was frozen - I'm not into food poisoning as a Jan diet trend) with the end of the bag of salad I bought - I've just got some wraps out of the freezer too and will liberate them and have it all in a wrap. Can anyone tell I'm making an effort to use up freezer stock?

    I also have several jars of honey and mustard chicken tonight from before OH turned veggie. We tried it ages ago with quorn pieces but it just wasn't nice. Any suggestions of what I could use with the sauce which is veggie friendly. OH will tolerate some veg if need be - but not mushrooms or courgettes.

    Haven’t had my tea yet - still in the oven!

    It will be Jack Monroe’s vegan lasagne.

    Lunch today will be home made carrot soup with chicken for me and cheese on toast for He Who Knows. Supper this evening will be cheese and tomato omelettes, new potatoes and winter salad with a 99 calorie yoghurt for pudding if we want one. Customary cup of black coffee to finish.
    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!

    Tonight will be burger in a bun with salad and sweet potato wedges. I've just put a chilli con carne in the SC, that will be tomorrow's dinner, with a jacket potato. Have added grated carrots and lentils to the mix to bulk it out a bit - hopefully there'll be loads left for the freezer.

    Can I join - I love these kind of threads.

    Lunch was left over from last night - bbcfood recipe- home style chicken curry. I had some toast with it as cnba to make rice.

    Dinner is bacon and eggs. Request from my eldest. I had some left over mash so made potato cakes. Beans in fridge that need to be eaten - children can have them. I’ll do some kind of salad for me and my husband.

    Just thrown together a hearty beef stew in red wine. Lots of veg ( more veg then meat tbh ) and I'm going to make herby dumplings

    I've actually been cold all day today, which is so not like me, so I want comfort food
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    Ohh, good idea. I'm going to use one jar with the wild boar and apple sausages (the ones I thought were venison but aren't ) which I found in the freezer. However, I still have 3 jars left to use (yes bulk bought thinking they were a bargain ) so the could deff be another option.

    I've been cold all day too - ended up making a hot water bottle.

    Pasta scoffed here, I grilled a slice of streaky bacon from a packet I have open with mine, OH finished some spicy cheese on his and I had some normal grated cheese on mine.

    Not sure about tomorrow as yet. OH finishes work early so might come in and pick beforehand. However we are virtually out of bread, need more pasta (only have the little shapes left) and a few other bits so choices could become limited until I shop.

    Tonight is Turkish liver soup/casserole.
    Recreated from a visit many years ago in a small place that had no menu, just a load of ready cooked dishes that you pointed at to order.

    Served with thickly sliced tiger bread and proper butter to dip in the tomato & chilli based sauce.

    Made some houmous, but my stick blender is broken so used the liquidiser. It was like a cream by the time it was served, but was nice tasting. With turkey and feta meatballs, couscous, greek salad, halloumi, green salad leaves and pitta breads. Leftovers are packed ready for work lunch tomorrow.

    Homemade carrot soup for lunch with chicken for me and a sandwich/toast for He Who Knows and supper this evening will be something with mine as he fancies either a chilli or curry and will decide today.
