    That tofu recipe looks delicious, but 5 tbsp coarsely crushed black peppercorns! That sounds a lot (and expensive). Did you put that much in, @goldfinches?

    Blue cheese, pear and walnut salad with a jacket spud (reheated from the freezer) topped with sour cream, chives from the garden and cheese.

    Except I forgot to take a photo...so here's the same salad from the other night with an M&S posh dog...with a piece missing as I forgot to take a photo before tucking in  :D

    I completely forgot to say that I really don't care for black pepper so omitted it entirely, sorry for confusing you.  The amount looks lethal doesn't it and made my eyes open wide when I first read through the recipe, intriguing too, wonder whether you can taste any of the other ingredients at all.

    @goldfinches - your class sounds fabulous. Can you share details? 
    I forgot to say that I will ask the tutor tomorrow evening as I cannot find the page for it on the college website so watch this space and apologies for not having replied earlier to your query.

    I will use up the opened pack of wraps that are in the fridge - with chicken and salad for dinner today.

    Beef enchiladas with guacamole.  Olio freebies wraps, mince, onions, garlic and Greek yoghurt, 75% Aldi reductions on avocadoes and tomatoes,15p Tesco pack of chopped toms with basil and grated cheese and HG chillies should work out about £1 to feed 4.

    expensive noodles from Waitrose - some italian brand £3.50 for a 250g pack but I had a £1.50 off voucher and they are so good we use half as much as we do of others.  just served with pesto.

    So having been veg last night I'm campaigning for steak tonight.  Got 2 big honkers from Lidl in the fridge.

    Using up bits and bobs to make a chicken, veg and noodle stir fry tonight. I picked up loads of Hello Fresh sauce sachets (ketjap manis, sriracha, teriyaki, soy sauce and harissa) from the community fridge last week so it will be seasoned with an assortment of those!
    This made a huuuge wok-full last night so we are finishing it off tonight.

    I'm making pizzas using wraps as the bases. Sauce will be made using tomatoes (olio freebie), tomato puree, mixed herbs and BBQ sauce. Topped with mixed grated cheese, tomatoes for me, and mushroom and pancetta for OH.

    Followed by warm chocolate praline cookies topped with banana (olio freebie), chocolate and vanilla ice cream and melted chocolate spread.
