    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...

    It was such a lovely evening, that we drove to a local town bought fish and chips and ate them on a blanket by the river. It was a very pleasant change.

    Got some YS gammon from Tesco the other day, so will get that out of the freezer and have it with some homemade potato wedges, fried eggs, and peas!

    Tonight it's skinless boneless cod fillets (about £3 for two at Aldeee) oven-poached in milk plus added spices, and served with green lentils which have been simmered in a pan of HM chicken stock along with finely diced onion, red chilli, green pepper and garlic.

    Pud is HM pancakes filled with Nutella and sliced banana (there were two to use up), and served with a drizzle of cream.

    I bought some cauliflower and chickpea balls and read on the packet they could be served in a curry sauce. So husband was having fish curry and I used half the sauce for this purpose. I'm not a fan and wont be doing that again. We had biriani rice with it, that husband made.

    Icecream with a flake in it for afters.

    I'll almost certainly be cooking sausage pasta tonight. I tend to make a tomato based sauce, bulked out with veggies, and often flavoured with paprika to give it a chorizo-y/ Spanish style flavour.

    I made some quorn scotch eggs, they were lovely.
    For anyone interested I used 6 quorn sausages, 4 slices of brown bread and blitzed them to make a breadcrumbs consistency. Then added an egg and an egg yolk.

    Divided into four and wrapped them around 4 hard boiled eggs, egg wash and breadcrumbs and baked in the oven for half an hour.

    Had one with some branston pickle and salad.

    Husband had pulled pork, in a bun with coleslaw and salad.

    Just shared half a GF cheese and tomato pizza with OH. Was nice enough but pizza not generally my meal of choice, however, it made sure OH ate. Not a great day, second family bereavement in 10 weeks.

    I'm trying to empty at least one drawer in the kitchen freezer this week, so tonight (using up sausages) we will be having toad in the hole.

    Dessert will be the waffle berry bake from the OS recipe archives : chopped up waffles (I'm using chocolate ones from Aldi) mixed with chopped chunks of cheap white chocolate, a pack of frozen raspberries, and 4 eggs beaten together with a tub of creme fraiche and a tablespoon each of flour and sugar .... then baked in the oven for around half an hour. It sounds odd, but it's very nice

    Morning

    Well my Linda Mc noodle dish never happened! DS went to friends for a BBQ so I had a veg pizza 🍕 from Morries. It was pretty bland. My favourite is ricotta & spinach from Aldeeee.

    Tonight will try to make the noodle concoction! As long as Iím not too late home from another fun day in the NHS!

    Happy Monday

    We were supposed to be BBQing - but it may well be leftover chicken and chorizo "shepherds" pie from last night looking at the weather- recipe from "The Savvy Shopper"
