    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...

    Soup for lunch and freezer emptying goes on so some fish of some kind with sweet potato chips, peas and sweetcorn for supper and then for a treat NO blackberries, just a cup of coffee!

    Not soup for lunch I've unearthed a couple of tine one of lentil dahl and one of vegetable Balti that need using so we'll have them and a tin of peaches in juice to follow, all just slightly out of date but still good!

    There was loads more meat than I expected on the lamb steaks that I braised a couple of days ago, so thought I would shred some of it, mush-up the veg, mix them together for a sort of moussaka type mix. Iíll just pop to the s/m for an aubergine and Iím set to go.

    Was going to do a fish pie tonight with extra for the freezer. Truth be told didnít fancy it. Will be dicing the cod into chunks and deep frying in batter with maybe a few chips if I can be bothered.

    Will use the other bits of seafood tomorrow for a seafood linguine as Iím working late(ish)

    I made tomato and red pepper soup yesterday with some over ripe home grown tomatoes from the greenhouse (they're not keeping this year) so that with some cold meat will be lunch.

    Supper will be another of Hugh FW's recipes from the 3 good things book in the form of garlicky white bean puree, black olive and mozzarella pizzas with a leaf salad, I can't face another blackberry so pudding will be ice cream and blueberries with digestive biscuit crumbs scattered over and then our usual coffee.

    I've got some vegetables left over from last night, might also defrost the last of the quorn chilli for OH - might even treat him and buy some basmati rice!

    Soup, beautiful soup for lunch and it's cool enough today that warm soup won't be the penance it has been!

    Supper this evening will be a couple more of the tins of curry from my larder along with basmati rice, chutney, plain yoghurt and some fresh bits and pieces, followed by tinned peaches in juice and a cup of coffee.


    The bean based pizza was yummy and most definitely one to have again!

    We are taking our eldest DS out for a curry tonight, haven't seen him since he split with long term GF, so exited to catch up on gossip.

    Brunch will be a cheese omelette for me

    Scampi and chips here tonight (OH choice) pondering between using the remaining few chips that are left in the freezer or making my own with some lingering spuds in the veg draw.

    Courgettes stuffed with quorn bolognese. I'll have them with a salad, the others will have rice or chips with theirs.

    Iíve defrosted a portion of last weeks tomato risotto and will have a go at making taleggio and basil stuffed arancini, never made this before so fingers crossed it all holds together.
