    Ooh @Florenceem those banana loaves look delicious! (In fact all the dishes you post photos of look lovely, you’re obviously a great cook).

    My week has been a bit topsy-turvey as my father in law passed away last Friday (not entirely unexpected as he was 94, but it doesn’t stop it being a shock when it happens) so all my carefully planned menus have gone out of the window and we’ve been eating quick and easy grab-it-and-run meals as we dash about sorting out his affairs.

    However I was up early today and have prepared tonight’s dinner so it is ready to sling in the oven tonight - roasted aubergines stuffed with chunks of sausagemeat, chopped tomato, onion, garlic, chilli and mushroom, topped with fresh breadcrumbs and served with a marinara sauce. It has used up a fridge full of random bits quite nicely!

    @C_J
    sorry to hear about your FiL. I know what you mean about it being a shock.  We're in between with MiL who is still in hospital and has basically refused to eat or drink as well as refusing physio as she's too tired (due to not eating or drinking). At a week off of 96 we're not sure how this is going to work out other than she won't be coming back to live with us.  At best a hospice or care home I guess.
    @Florenceem
    is the middle banana loaf with a lemon icing?  I made my banana oatmeal muffins this week but not my best effort.  But either we'll finish them or they will end up in the bird feeder.

    tuna steaks cooked with tomatoes, shallots and cannellini beans tonight!!
