    The other pork and apple burger that was RTC from the Co-Op with the last of the spinach and squash croquettes and some grilled courgette. 

    Ohhh, that's just reminded me, there's squash in the freezer, i feel a thai curry may be in the making with that shortly.
    Squash croquettes??  recipe??  or bought??
    I'm afraid they were bought - although they don't look that hard to make at home based on the ingredients.

    Don't be afraid!  They look just the ticket!! I'll look for them next time I'm in Sainberys.

    I'm still waiting to try these cauliflower hash browns....

    @Brie - This recipe was in today's Guardian How to make courgette (and other summer veg) fritters – recipe | Food | The Guardian and if you read the comments by other readers below the article there are loads of tried and tested versions there that are worth a look too. I feel sure you could turn these into croquettes and then brush them with oil and bake them in the oven with very few or no changes to the basic recipe.

    In the spirit of eating what's in the fridge, freezer and larder I had an avocado dressed with freshly squeezed lime juice and urfa chilli paste accompanied by a fridge bottom salad with a truffle oil and shallot dressing and am now enjoying a coffee with a handful of walnut halves.

    We had pasta tonight, I bought fresh spaghetti from m&s,  it was rtc, but I found it hada strange texture.  A bit chewy, I had mine with quorn bolognese, the others had seafood
     sauce with added chorizo and the baby plum tomatoes that needed using up.

    I then fell asleep on the sofa for a couple of hours, hence me wide awake at this hour.

    Ended up rushing about before gym last night so threw together a salad - incl some bits from Olio (lettuce and radishes) Had a great haul the other day - 8 tiger rolls, 5 pastries, 2 pretzels, a bag of radishes, an iceberg lettuce and two mini watermelons - not a jot wrong with any of them just dates. Can't believe the food wastage like that.
