    I am making a turkey ham and veg pie to use up the remains of a turkey breast that OH cooked during the week. It was a £10 special offer from Iceland before Christmas which went into the freezer and didn't get used till now. It has already made multiple meals, so I have put the remaining slices into a pie dish with some stuffing balls, some bits of ham, a softened leek from the garden and some cooked mixed veg from a bag in the freezer, dotted with the leftover bit of cranberry sauce and covered with the leftover turkey gravy. I have cooled it all down (the gravy and veg were hot) and it is now in the fridge alongside shortcrust pastry, currently resting in a bowl, ready to cover it before baking. I haven't used a bottom crust.

    Out: pork loin roast for tomorrow. Various bits for chutney.
    In: from the L1dl box, just over 1/2kg blanched cubed carrots frozen to be used wherever. There was about 1.3kg of apples, used with the grapes already had to make

    Making a beef stroganoff with some LO beef from the weekend, no doubt there will be some which will end up in the freezer.  Half of the chicken chasseur from yesterday has gone in this morning.  Nothing taken out.
