    I tried ‘The Batch Lady’ burgers tonight and it’s a no from us. The recipe needs more layers of flavour - fried onions and some paprika and onion powder for flavour.

    The onion rings, skin-on fries and sweet potato fries were yummy though. And cheaper than a McD’s! I’ll make Big Mac sauce next time too.

    We ate out a number of times in the iow and every meal was excellent. I'm already wanting to go back!! I have decided that when I retire, me and husband and dogs are going for a minimum of 3 weeks.

    Dinner tonight was last nights leftover roasted veg mixed with pasta and mozzarella.  It was very nice.

    I have a pack of Korean style chicken kebabs to cook tonight - will do some jacket potatoes while the oven is on and roast the veggies that are needing to be used.

    Kids are away this weekend, they’ve found a place to rent, just awaiting the normal reference checks 🤞

    Bought a pair of Tomapork chops, so them on BBQ with watercress salad and some Padron peppers. Chilled melon for pud. 

    PS I know is personal preference but I don’t rate the Propeller Inn, for food in that area of the Island, I’d recommend the Yar Bridge pub, or the Culver Inn - both are doing amazing food at the moment 👍

    OH was saying how he's going to be so busy today as he has to prep dinner which he has intended to do as chicken basted (or cooked?) in red wine with mushrooms and lardons (so coq au vin?).  I had to go out to get the mushrooms and lardons and he didn't mention anything else to go with it so I've picked up an emergency pack of bake at home baguettes.  There's some mini ice cream magnumlikes in the freezer for afters.   

    That said he then decided to move furniture around from various rooms so is a bit knackered.  And I had to help of course so there goes my back and any plans I had for gardening.

    Oh no @Brie - poor you! Back pain is just horrible, I hope you are better soon.

    We also have a busy day today, more clearing of late father-in-law’s house which seems never ending due to his propensity for hoarding, and which is obv emotional for Mister CJ. It will need to be an easy meal tonight as I will be knackered, so I have one of Aldi’s frozen salmon en croute things to chuck in the oven and some asparagus and tenderstem broccoli to go with it. We too have Magnum-looky-likeys if pud is wanted.

    We are off to a barbecue tomorrow lunchtime and I foolishly offered to bring home made tiramisu, chocolate brownies and potato salad - so I need to make those before I collapse in a heap tonight too!

    Probably salad, salad and more salad. 
    Just back from a week away and the scales are not impressed.
