    OH has requested fish again so I will need to rustle it up with something.

    He then decided he really wanted scampi so I ended up going up to the Coop to buy some at a new extortionate convenience store price. However I did get two chicken breasts YS to65p, and two packs of smokey beef kebabs (6 in a pack) for £1 a pack. The kebabs will be split to portions of 2 a meal and I'll portion the chicken breasts up to freeze too so I guess they balanced out the scampi fleecing.

    Had it with chips, and peas for me, curry sauce for OH.

    Tonight I have had:
    A bowl of granola
    A yoghurt
    A plate of bombay potatoes
    2 handfuls of dried dates
    A slither of cheese, followed by one more slither and then a giant hunk of the stuff
    A mini ice lolly
    A child's leftover pasta and pesto

    I suspect I may be a tad hormonal...

    It just demanded rice pudding and more cheese. I complied.

    We're having spag bol tonight. It's been in the slow cooker since 4.30am so will just need reheating later. Inspired by Mrs LW, I'm making gooseberry fool for pud.
    Spend less now, work less later.

    Pea and ham soup from the freezer for lunch and corned beef hash for supper, using things up from freezers and stores so I don't have to get rid of much before we move. Gooseberry fool (hope you enjoy yours Jazee) for pudding and a cup of coffee.

    We ended up taking MIL out for lunch today, as she was feeling a bit lonely x we went to a lovely pub, that does simple food really well, DH had Lamb and rosemary pie, MIL had a small portion of Cottage pie, both with seasonal local veg, I had a smoked haddock and broccoli bake, with a huge salad, it was all bloomin lovely ;). After, we went to Havenstreet steam railway, and had a little jaunt on a steam train, with vanilla ice creams as a treat - just a lively day :)

    Supper will be lightly fried whitebait and shell on prawns with HM bread and butter for DH, salad for me - homemade aioli and tartar sauce too :)
