    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...

    Lunch today was the last of the 2 pea soup with bread. Dinner tonight will be a sausage pilaf with roasted vegetables - this is a new to me recipe so hope it's nice as it's fairly cheap to make.

    Just reporting back! The sausage pilaf was really nice and it's a definite keeper (also works as a Slimming World recipe if anyone's doing SW!). Recipe said to use microwave rice but I just cooked some basmati rice and used that.

    Dinner will either be pasta with a couple of those mushroom sausages I cut up added in (three left as OH nicked one to 'try' last night) or veggie chilli - which I'll make anyway but is usually better the next day if i can get OH to stay away from it lol.

    I'm still finding it exhausting to cook from scratch after a busy day from work - it's three weeks since I had the "flu" bug that was going around, but I'm still not up to par yet. I've had to deviate from the menu plan this week and I didn't think I'd be up to making the planned white fish poached in orange and honey with a spicy green lentil side dish (I'll do that on Saturday instead, when I have more time) and before leaving for work this morning just grabbed a two-portion tub of hm chicken and vegetable curry from the freezer to defrost while I'm out. Thank heavens for batch cooking on days like this!

    I made a curry yesterday using some of the the LO roast chicken from Sunday so we'll be having that with some rice for dinner tonight.

    We're having jacket potatoes with tuna mayo for lunch so a nice easy cooking day today!

    H/m cauli stalk & broccilli soup for lunch (again but lovely), small jelly with fruit and tonight Sicilion Chicken Linguine with Pea Shoots. Bought a Gusto box as per voucher on Martyn's page so will cook the chicken but half will go back into freezer, use half of other ingredients so will have again in a couple of days or so. Much fancier than I would usually have.

    Summer Salmon Spaghetti
    Yes, I know it's not summer but that's the name of the recipe I followed!

    I'm not a fan of spaghetti but this tasted good when I made it an hour ago - a sauce made with diced onions, chives, garlic, finely cut red chilli, veg stockpot, water, lemon juice and thickened with crème fraiche, add in braised broccoli and flaked hot smoked salmon and served over spaghetti.

    Just as well I made too much spaghetti as I ended up dropping half of it in the sink and later found I'd also dropped some on the floor when my foot kept getting stuck to the kitchen tiles!

    Baked breaded chicken, salad and sweet potato wedges

    Followed by a slice if Black Forest Gateaux that I made for Mr Sukies birthday

    Didn't look too smart but was scrummy
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it
