    Second Anniversary First Post
    I’m trying not to do a shop this week.  We have left over gammon, onion and potato pie with a little cheese grated in the mixture.  We will have that with beans and fried egg.  For desert I used the rest of the pastry as the base, crinkled apples chopped up mixed with mincemeat and a sponge on top.  It’s in the oven now and smells divine.

    I wandered into the fish shop on Friday (proper monger) and the chap smiled at me and said "how about some salmon?"   Must have read my mind or maybe I looked familiar (I've seen him before but can't remember where) so ended up with 2 honking thick slices of salmon.  Plan was to cook them for Sunday breakfast and have the left over for lunches but then I realised that the price I was charged meant they would do nicely for us both for dinner.  So panned fried them last night and served with a bit of frozen  spinach (heated up obviously) and a couple of Lidl's emmental potato cakes.   OH always makes a face when I suggest salmon (prefers various white fish) but really enjoyed this.  

    Discussions are underway whether we will have a cheese fest for dinner with bake at home rolls (been told this isn't appropriate as we had croissant for breakfast) or lasagna.
