    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...

    last night was h/m meatballs and pasta and tonight is another batch of h/m meatballs with h/m potato wedges and some leftover fridge raider veg. Interesting how we are all craving comfort food in June! I keep looking at all your mash and dumpling dishes. Mmm

    Very well done IM! Your menus always sound so delicious, it just goes to show you can eat lovely meals and still lose weight.

    Tonight we are having basa fillets baked in coconut milk and red chilli, served with stir fried Chinese veg. Strawberries for pud again.

    Tonight for us was YS sea bass fillets with oven chips (using potatoes not frozen!) and peas. Was absolutely delicious.

    May have some fruit, jelly & either yoghurt or quark later if peckish, otherwise will have tomorrow!

    Have made some vegetarian scotch eggs which we'll have with salad for lunch.

    Tonight will be one of my favourite curries - butternut squash & sweet potato. Will have with some pilau rice.

    Still in need of comfort food, so tonight I am making meatballs baked in a Yorkshire pudding batter. I think it’s a Jamie Oliver recipe, it was something I saw on telly on the Food Network recently.

    Giant Jaffa Cake (from the OS recipe index) for pud.

    Will make an omlette or frittata with ham and mushrooms (nearly all gone)
    onion (spring) plus whatever bits and bobs. Not sure if that will be lunch or dinner, if dinner then something eggy on toast for lunch, if lunch then will get a curry and rice from freezer.

    I've just had baked potato with chicken mayonnaise for lunch. Will probably just pick at bits later if I'm hungry.
