    Last night we had an M&S chinese meal for two, stretched to 3 with some extra spring rolls, prawn crackers and stir fried noodles and courgette from the garden.

    Tonight's dinner will be roast beef, hm yorkshires, roasties, cornish new potatoes, savoy cabbage, carrots, green beans from the garden, and gravy....followed by a rm individual blackcurrant cheesecake each.

    Buttered chicken breast joint (YS £1.58 reduced from £5.25 :eek:) with new potatoes, chantenay carrots (also YS), cabbage and broccoli.

    Will do us for 2 meals so pretty cheap.

    OH was fed at work at lunchtime so came home and picked

    I had some more of the broccoli / asparagus bowl thing I bought YS yesterday (seem to be hanging in there with asparagus, though it's so flipping hot I prob couldn't tell if I'm having a reaction to it or not), with mushroom quiche and sliced fried potatoes.

    I had planned stir fry tomorrow but it's still hotter than hot here and I'm not sure we'll even fancy that.

    I made tomato and red pepper soup yesterday with some over ripe home grown tomatoes from the greenhouse (they're not keeping this year) so that with some cold meat will be lunch.

    Supper will be another of Hugh FW's recipes from the 3 good things book in the form of garlicky white bean puree, black olive and mozzarella pizzas with a leaf salad, I can't face another blackberry so pudding will be ice cream and blueberries with digestive biscuit crumbs scattered over and then our usual coffee.

    Hmmm, so OH has requested stir fry tomorrow when it cools off a bit. I'm considering steak for me tonight.... need to make my mind up as will have to defrost it.

  • A freezer rummage brought forth a portion of stewed liver which I'll have with mashed swede, cabbage & sweetcorn.
  • Dinner tonight will be spaghetti carbonara with salad.
