    Got some beef out of the freezer tomorrow to make into a casserole (tiny bit of beef, will be bulked out with veg, but TBH, as long as I have enough liquid to cook it long and slow it doesn't matter as its only for me so I prob only need enough for two portions)

    Found some noodles in the freezer too so stir fry tomorrow, just need veg to get for it.

    Broccoli and stilton soup with chicken for me and toast for He Who Knows and supper this evening will be a small YS pork loin joint and a roast dinner with roast potatoes, steamed carrots, broccoli and green beans, apple sauce, stuffing and gravy! It's a long time since we had a roast and I'm looking forward to having some cold meat to play with meal wise for a couple of days.

    We are having fish pie, using up fish that was given to us by friends when they have been out sea fishing - random cod, pout etc Cauliflower topping for me, mash for the men

    Made stock from turkey carcass yesterday, used some for pork in cider last night, will make the weeks soup for lunches today

    I’m about to make a meatloaf for tonight’s supper. I’m using minced beef and pork together with some pork sausage meat, and I think there’ll be enough for at least six portions, so we might have it cold with salad, jacket potato and hm slaw tomorrow night too.

    I have the in-laws for dinner today. Very plain eaters.

    So it's beef, yorkshire puddings, cabbage, carrots, peas and roast and mashed potatoes. I will do some nut roast for myself.

    I'm trying the beef in the slow cooker. As per this method, I'm interested in that it says it's possible to do a joint or chicken from frozen, has anyone else tried?

  • Today’s brunch is smoked salmon and scrambled egg on a slice of low-carb bread.

    I’m trying to use up stuff from the freezer and an awful lot of ageing salad leaves, so tonight’s dinner will be home-made vegetable broth, followed by a steak and blue cheese salad made with a sad little bit of prehistoric sirloin lurking in the bottom shelf of the freezer.

    I'm doing tandoori chicken with Bombay aloo (or it might turn into gobi aloo depending how much it cooks up into) and garlic & coriander naan bread

    OH now wants stir fry tomorrow - hope the noodles are ok now I've got them out the freezer.

    So he's having a picky tea and I have no idea. I've got the beef in for the casserole slowly cooking on low (will cook that for an hour or so first before adding anything else) but that's not really for today. Had I have known I'd have got something else out the freezer, perhaps mince for hm burgers or a steak. Might be king prawn alfredo as I have one in the freezer still. Or a mushroom risotto that's been sat in the cupboard for ages (though that would go with the steak thinking about it...neither of which OH likes / eats)
