    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...

    Spinach and pumpkin burger with mixed veg and some LO carrot and swede mash. Also had a poached egg with it - which seems a bit random but I really fancied it - worked well.

    OH had a same burger in some tiger loaf as had eaten a big lunch at work.

    Salmon for us tonight as well - I make a 'thing' which is layers of sauteed sliced red onion and crushed garlic, thickly sliced par-boiled potatoes, chopped steamed spinach, cubed salmon fillets, a bit of fresh parsley, some black pepper, salt and a hint of cayenne pepper, with a generous amount of double cream poured over and a bit of finely grated parmesan on top. Bake for half an hour or so.

    It really is delicious, and so quick and easy to make. Plus it's quite economical because two salmon fillets diced up in it goes a long way - enough for four large portions.

    I have a haggis that needs using up and I seem to remember someone on here suggested using it as a mince substitute for something else once but I can't for the life of me remember what it was.

    Not sure if it was lasagne, or chilli or spag bog - or something entirely different? Help!

    Kerri maybe they used it as the mince for mince and tatties. It's nice stuffed in a chicken breast and wrapped in bacon.

    I had fried rice, thin pork on top and satay sauce. Not been posting as haven't been cooking much except weekends due to working now.

    Kerrie- I think haggis on its own may be a bit rich by itself as Spag Bol or shepherds pie, maybe mix with mince. Just trying’s suggestion of stuffed chicken sound good, or we recently had haggis scotch eggs that were yummy.

    Tonight we’re having chicken thighs in Pomegranate molasses with a tabbouleh salad
