    Husband found a couple of locally-made cauliflower and red pepper boil in the bag curries in the freezer, so we had those with konjac rice. Pretty good actually.

    I’ve defrosted a pack of minced beef, and will use some of it to make burgers to have in brioche buns with salad tonight. We particularly like Ainsley Harriott’s recipe for ‘brilliant burgers’ from his Barbecue Bible cookbook.

    I’m keeping a handful of the mince back to mix with rice and other bits and pieces for some roasted stuffed peppers for tomorrow.

    My brother gave us a portion of his home made lamb curry, so daughter and husband shared that. 
    I made some Bombay potatoes and  tandoori paneer and pepper kebabs to add to it with rice and poppadoms.

    last night was garlic stuffed olives for nibbles, then bbq'd squeeky cheese (saganaki from Lidl) topped with tomatoes (much nicer than pernod or ouzo in my opinion) and accompanied by pitas followed by iceberg, tomato and onion salad dressed just with lemon juice and thick lamb chops.  All accompanied with pink wine and then a glass of prosecco to finish.  

    Anniversary today so OH did eggs benedict for breakfast and I believe we will be having roast pork and new potatoes for dinner.

    I have a lovely slice of salmon for tomorrow's breakfast but I think I'll pop it in the freezer for later in the week.  I'm not working (need to use my hols at some point) so there's plenty of chances to have it.

    I had a very rare, very large haul of lovely YS items when I did the food shop yesterday, so have been busy processing/cooking/freezing stuff.  The menu plan said pork chops for dinner tonight, but I managed to get a large leg of pork reduced to just £2.50 so that is simmering away in the slow cooker with the last of some cider which had gone a bit flat in the bottle, some shallots and mushrooms. (also both YS).  Will serve with YS cauliflower florets and tenderstem broccoli spears, which I have made into a large dish of cauli-broc cheese.

    Pre-dinner nibbles with a glass of wine last night were some bruschetta which I made with a YS tiger bread baguette topped with YS cherry tomatoes, shallots and garlic.

    Lunch today was truffled mushroom pate, made with YS mixed mushrooms, shallots and garlic. I already had the truffle oil so all I had to buy was the mascarpone. Enough left for another day (and it was delicious).

    I also bought half a dozen aubergines, reduced to just 10p each. I have diced and roasted them in a little oil, then removed the skins (I know they are edible, but Mister CJ is fussy) and am making them into a roasted aubergine, cherry tomato and coconut curry for tomorrow night. Peeling the aubergines has made the tips of my fingers go blue and it looks like I have really poor circulation now.  :smile:

    Happy anniversary @Brie 🥳

    @C_J fab haul 👍

    well, we didn’t have the Tomahawk last night, DH had been building a new patio area in full sun, and fell asleep after 1 beer (I did warn him re: sun, and the beer, so he had a sandwich late evening and I had some chicken thighs.

    The steak is now being BBQ’d today 😍
