    What are you making for dinner 2018. 10th Jan 18 at 12:20 AM
    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...

    A slightly-tweaked version of Jack Monroe's spicy chicken and mandarin tagine for us tonight. I make it with diced chicken breast instead of legs, omit the mint, and stir through a little cream before serving. It is so, so tasty. I made it last night as it seems even better when it has been left to marinate in the spices for 24 hours.

    Eggy breads for lunch and low fat sausages and mash with steamed veg for supper, fat free yoghurt and cup of black coffee.
    Thumpers mum was right - if you can't find anything nice to say don't say anything at all!

    Sounds delicious, things like that are deff best left overnight before eating IMO.

    Tonight OH is having pea and spinach soup (not HM ) and I'm having a spinach and goats cheese omelette. Not feeling the love for pancakes this year and OH doesn't like them so not making any.

    We had the last of the Thai style butternut squash soup for lunch with some part bake baguettes. Glad that was the last of the soup as it was so spicy for me, DH didn't mind it though. Won't be making it again! Will still make a spicy butternut squash soup in the future but with less spice!

    Dinner tonight will be shepherds pie with colcannon top. Will add various veg to the mince to up the veg portions for the day and to use up some bits in the fridge before going on holiday at the end of the week.

    I have 14 more days in which to make enough freezer space for my Heartier meat order, today I have liberated a salmon and a cod fillet, frozen peas and sweetcorn and using up some LO mash from the fridge to make which a fish pie. I have a plan for tomorrow's offering too which involves bean, pasta and gammon soup, cooked gammon ham, more peas and sweetcorn and suet dumplings. Perhaps I had better plan a pudding in case it only ends up fit for the dog

    Roast a lovely rib of beef at the weekend for us + family. Sent some left-overs home with son, and enough bits left to shred and make into a big sandwich with grilled onion rings.
