    I found some random pieces of steak in the freezer, I will braise them and serve with mash and veg.

    No snow here, but very much colder.  Those of you with snow, do take care x

    picked up a nice olive loaf which we'll be having with various meats and cheeses.  I was going to make soup but might do some Christmas cards instead.....

    Taste cardboardy, and the glitter sticks to your teeth.
    Might try to use rice paper and edible gold.....

    Or I might just make sausage and mash for dinner.

    something that's a bit like chicken caccitore.  basically chicken thighs, browned with onions and garlic, add tomatoes (passata this time) and cook for a while then add mushrooms.  serve with pasta (or rice, or fries, or mash, or polenta)

    I would add wine but I don't have any.  I'll throw in some various herbs - normally I would mix dried herbs or a dried bolognaise mix with bread crumbs and use that to coat the chicken prior to browning.  Adding the remaining breadcrumb mix to the pan to scrape up the good bits and that helps thicken the sauce.  But not sure I can be asked to fuss that much so might just add a bit of roux if it's too thin.  The breadcrumbs in the drawer may have been moved with us 5+ years back and may house all sorts of "protein" by now - will have a look to see if it can be my daily "bin it" today.

    Out to a work Christmas party - I think I ordered the lamb shank but am not too sure.  Hard to remember what I did last week let alone what I emailed someone about in October.
