    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.

    That all sounds really lovely! Love HFW :)

    I've got some vegetables left over from last night, might also defrost the last of the quorn chilli for OH - might even treat him and buy some basmati rice! :)

    Soup, beautiful soup for lunch and it's cool enough today that warm soup won't be the penance it has been!

    Supper this evening will be a couple more of the tins of curry from my larder along with basmati rice, chutney, plain yoghurt and some fresh bits and pieces, followed by tinned peaches in juice and a cup of coffee.


    The bean based pizza was yummy and most definitely one to have again!

    We are taking our eldest DS out for a curry tonight, haven't seen him since he split with long term GF, so exited to catch up on gossip.

    Brunch will be a cheese omelette for me :)

    Scampi and chips here tonight (OH choice) pondering between using the remaining few chips that are left in the freezer or making my own with some lingering spuds in the veg draw.

    Courgettes stuffed with quorn bolognese. I'll have them with a salad, the others will have rice or chips with theirs.
  • I’ve defrosted a portion of last weeks tomato risotto and will have a go at making taleggio and basil stuffed arancini, never made this before so fingers crossed it all holds together.

    He Who Knows as gone fishing with a packed lunch and I will have poached egg on avocado on toast! lucky ME!!!

    I'm defrosting a lamb shank (singular) for supper to make us Icelandic meat soup for supper, it's a staple out there and is more like a stew than a soup and the cooler weather means it is just right for today. Some gooseberries from the freezer will be cooked too and I have some double cream to finish from an earlier recipe and I shall make gooseberry fool for pudding and then of course coffee.
