    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...

    I suddenly have a hankering for egg and chips - although annoyingly I only have 2 eggs left as I hard boiled two last night, so it will depend on what OH wants too.

    I cooked the chicken I had got for yesterday's dinner, today along with some jacket potatoes, which I scooped out, mashed with cheese and spring onions, refilled the skins and baked again.
    I had some tuna and hard-boiled egg.
    We had this with salad and the leftover salads from yesterday's BBQ. I'm on my own tomorrow night and looking forward to it.

    Well we had the soup! it was just so steaming hot here yesterday that He Who Knows just had a salad at 9.30pm too hot before that and I'd gone past eating by then so I made some toast.

    Today I'm cooking big mushrooms stuffed with low fat soft cheese, bacon strips and porcini mushroom powder and then a slice of cheddar on top and a drizzle of truffle oil at lunchtime and supper will be something cold and light when it cools enough in the evening to contemplate food.

    I cooked a whole pack of Jacketing potatoes yesterday when it was cooler in the evening, all 9 of them! So lunch today will be jacket potato with tinned dahl and grated cheese and a big mixed salad. Summer pudding for our pudding and the cup of coffee we so enjoy.

    Change of lunch green bean salad in lemon mayo and courgette coins fried in a little butter with some Baharat seasoning and half a big jacket each with cheese melted on top, lovely!

    Grilling fish fingers was my limit in the kitchen, had those with some mixed salad, tomatoes and hard boiled egg.

    I have a stocking headache where it's so humid and clouded over here, wish it would just rain now

    I ended up having Spag Bol last night, with Courgette spaghetti, it was yummy

    Busy day ahead, so just an easy dinner - frozen steak pie and chips for the men, and chicken salad for me.

    Stuffed peppers with salad, I will stuff them with some diced up mushroon and a little bit of crunchy bacon bits ,some grated cheese topped with dried stuffing mix and then wrapped in foil and cooked for 15 minutes in my remoska then I unwrap to crisp off the stuffing top, absolutely delicious and so savoury I may drizzle a bit of sweet chilli sauce inside as well.Great way to use up the odd left over green peper that seems to lurk in the fridge

    I just love this idea, I'm so much more aware of how much electricity the oven uses now we've got a smart meter!

    I cooked salmon last night so I roasted new pots, fennel bulbs, peppers and mushrooms in the oven too, delicious. It was a generous piece of salmon and I cut it in 3, thinking the I'd chop up the third, slightly smaller piece to go in our lunches, but OH got to it first and had seconds

    Tonight is going to be something with eggs, I might just do a simple omelette and salad - not feeling like cooking much!

    Pea and courgette risotto with a green salad and a goodly dusting of grated parmesan, summer pudding if we want it and our cup of coffee to finish.
