    I use broccoli stalks in broccoli pasta bake - they just take a few mins longer than the trees and are great - add something more to the bake as well. xx


    And they make great broccoli and stilton soup. Saves any waste and no one is any the wiser. ;)

    I don't think you can beat a decent prawn mayo baked potato or a chilli filling bulked out with lots of mushrroms, peppers, kidney beans, coriander and topped with soured cream.;)

    I have used THIS RECIPE substituting the beef for venision and it was great.

    Must admit it's a while since we had a mince type dish, suddenly thinking Moroccan spiced veggie mince for the spud may be nice (got veggie mince in the freezer).

    Lunch tomorrow is Spiced prawn and little gem salad, substituting green beans from my freezer in place of expensive and imported sugar snap peas. :D

    I love veggie mince chilli non carne. :D Lots and lots of coriander is the key. ;)

    I adore mince.

    Last week I found a recipe for mozzarella stuffed meat balls in a roasted red pepper sauce, it was fab.

    Regards baked potatoes, I find souffle baked potatoes scrummy! I just use the method as a guideline (not that method, it was in fact a slimming world recipe) and throw what ever I have in drooling-8.gifdrooling-3.gif

    They can be as economy/luxurious as you like and still be delicious:j

    - glad to see you posting :hello::D

    I have a yummy meatballs recipe passed on from my friends mum - with rosemary,basil, red wine, buffalo moz - far from the cheapest recipe in the (proverbial) book, and the remaining sauce is gorgeous with pasta sauce. It is a bit of a faff to make, but i can post the recipe tomorow when i have more time (if anyone wants it). They are aromatic and sexy :o:rotfl:
    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men :cool:

    Every time we have broccoli I chuck the stalks in a bag in the freezer, when it's full I make a huge pan of brocolli soup. No-one in the family has realised yet that their soup is made with the bits that most people throw away! :D

    Anyone got any killer Baked potato filling ideas?

    Also, Thursday in the slow cooker I'm going to use some left over diced Venison from the freezer, I can do red wine braised Venison of course, but it's a bit autumnal, anyone got a lighter Venison casserole type recipe?

    What cut of venison do you have? - it doesnt have to be slow cooked unless that is easier for you of course lol.
    You can cook venison anyway you would a decent piece of beef..
    & before I get jumped on we have a very nice game butcher nearby who I swear is cheaper than Mr T for the equivalent beef joint ... not to mention the occasional 'road kill' that comes our way lol
    I THINK is a whole sentence, not a replacement for I Know

    It's trimmings from Venison steak, bits with connective membrane etc, so would be best slow cooked. We had the rest a while ago pan roasted with a red wine, chocolate and raspberry vinegar sauce which was :EasterBun

    I love Venison, it is I think my favorite meat, but it is pricey from our local butcher so it's a treat.

    They were cooking venison for a shooting party in Out Of The Frying Pan on BBC this week.
