    There were problems with the original thread in that it disappeared and could not be reinstated.

    So a new thread was created and we all started again, unfortunately that thread also seems to have joined it's predecessor.

    So here's a new one. We need to hear about Suki's lamb casserole and Island Maid is back from Amsterdam and must have delights to tell us about.

    Maybe if the old one can be found then this can be merged?

    Anyway without further ado...

    Bought a cooked half chicken on YS yesterday so had some last night with the veggies I brough back from carvery lunch. Today I am making a chicken pasta salad, dd will be coming over with dgs, we usually go out for lunch but as she has a client near me and the job is coming to fruition (an end!!) she is not sure exactly what she is doing so may drop dgs off then come back, or may take him to harras builder with her then come here for lunch, or to all of us go out for lunch. The pasta salad will do for me for next few days then.

    Went out to a nearby town for a look around, they had a lovely fish and chip shop, we had a lunchtime special, haddock, chips, peas, bread and butter and a cup of tea for two for 10.50.

    I cooked the piri piri chicken I picked up half price at Aldi last night as it was due to go off at midnight tonight. Made a salad and a Greek salad and we had that at teatime.
