    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...

    We have been away for a few days and had some lovely food.

    We had a fish and chips to share at lunchtime by the sea, we got home about 6.30, we had some nachos with cheese and salsa and I made some refried bean snack things. Very easy but very tasty.

    I cut a few wraps in half, put a blob of refried beans on, a bit of grated cheese and some salsa, I ran a flour and water mix round the edges, folded them into triangles, pressed the edges to seal and baked them for 10 mins. Quick and easy.

    A busy cooking day here. I’ve made salmon en croute for dinner tonight, portobello mushrooms stuffed with onions, minced beef, rice and herbs for tomorrow night, a big pan of chicken and potato curry to be portioned up for the freezer, a pan of sweet potato, chilli and coconut soup for lunches at work, then a sherry trifle and a massive apple and blackberry plait drizzled with white icing for desserts this week. Thanks to the poster Butterfly Brain for the apple plait recipe (in one of the grocery challenge threads), it is absolutely gorgeous.

    DH and DD are having steak with roast potatoes, carrots, broccoli and green beans. I don't really like steak (I know, I know), so I'm having sausages with mine instead.

    Chilli that I made th other night (veggie and GF), I had mine mixed in with the last portion of aubergine bake that was in the freezer, which was ok, but I'm kinda glad it's now done.

    Got some corn on the cob in Lidl the other day so should prob have one of those at least tomorrow, poss with a Mediterranean tart that's in the freezer (last of a box of two) and some potatoes. OH will likely finish the chilli off.
