    The plan is for a roast chicken dinner as we've not had a roast for ages. Chicken is in the oven now. I think though with the heat we could well end up with cold chicken and salad.
    Spend less now, work less later.

    Lunch today will be some packet pasta from stores to use it up and supper tonight (praise the monkeys!) will be a chicken, cashew nut and tenderstem broccoli stir fry with lemon and some basmati rice, He Who Knows won't touch modern raised chicken normally as he says it doesn't taste of anything BUT when asked yesterday if this dish would be OK he said 'fine, I like a Chinese!', miracle 2 of the week! (Miracle no 1 was him sorting out his desk in the study!)Inevitably there will be blackberries in dessert if we have one and always coffee, coffee, coffee!

    Roast chicken dinner for us tonight. I am just about to roast the chicken now before the weather gets too hot and unbearable, and this will also give me time to strip the carcass, portion everything up, and make a pan of stock from the bones ready for some soup for this weeks lunches.

    I am making A Thing for this weeks puddings - a large traybake of thinn(ish) sponge base, topped with custard (made quite thickly, so it is fairly solid) and then topped with stewed apples.
  • I have Italian style braised lamb steaks going in the slow cooker, one to eat and one for the freezer. There’s a small baked potato leftover from a couple of days ago that I’ll have with the lamb along with some green beans.

    So hard to eat anything in this sort of weather.

    Had some sourdough toast with bacon and mashed avocado washed down with a banana and red berry smoothie for an early breakfast.

    Have just made a dip/spread with avocado and preserved lemon processed till smooth with homemade labaneh eaten with flatbreads and a Greek Salad.

    Supper will probably be a roasted tomato salad with farro from Heidi Swanson!!!8217;s book Near + Far.

    I think dinner will be quiche and I'll have mine with jersey royals and some YS tenderstem broccoli and asparagus tips. First time I've had asparagus in a long time as I had two reactions to it previously. I'm hoping the fact this is a semi cooked micro pot and the asparagus isn't early season that it will be ok.....if you don't hear from me again you know why.....

    A quick tea of 'chuck some stuff in a pan and hope it tastes good' meal for me. So an onion, a few mushrooms, a handful of spinach and a tomato all fried up with some piri piri seasoning and then half a can of baked beans stirred in. It was perfectly alright, if not a particularly wonderful culinary experience.
