    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've just made broccoli cheese soup for lunches for the next couple of days and supper tonight will be pan fried salmon with new potatoes, peas, sweetcorn and any green beans I find to pick in the polytunnel. Blueberry compote with ice cream from some frozen blueberries that need using and our usual coffee.

    finally made the Balinese curry (jar of) with peppers, baby corn and sugar snap peas (so OH could have some as he's veggie) with rice.
    Was highly disappointed, it was marketed with three chillies as hot - it wasn't, and it was bland. I did have to add a little water to make the liquid go further to cook the veg but not that much. Certainly won't be buying that again and the remainder might get thrown into a casserole (the bin would be better but I'm not wasting good food)

    Broccoli cheese soup for lunch with cold chicken for me and a scotch egg for He Who Knows and supper this evening will be a cheesy courgette and rice bake something like a Tian from Provence served with a crisp mixed salad, fruit compote for pud and coffee after that.

    Five of us to feed tonight and it will be lasagne, salad and garlic bread (garlic bread is one of DH's specialities) followed by a salted caramel cheesecake that I made yesterday and just need to drizzle the sauce over today.

    Dilemma dilemmas, had a big bacon and sausage roll from the bakers for breakfast, im still full now, totally unnecessary but was nice all the same, wont want much for lunch at all, and because I donít have the dog to sort today a colleague has suggested we lunch together, this would be fine if she didnít eat like a wild animal and secondly if I was even slightly hungry. I donít want to sit through it hahah so may suggest I am busy hehe

    Chicken FricassŤe from Recipes From an Italian Butcher pg.210

    Was O.K.... not sure if Id do it again though. Used 2 egg yokes to thicken which added a nice creaminess and the juice of a lemon. Would cut that down to 1/2 if I did do again.

    Thanks for the heads-up C J will check it out

    Using up leftovers here tonight, so I've got a tiny portion of bolgnese sauce, half a can of black beans and some spinach that's starting to look a bit sorry for itself. I'm thinking I'll probably just heat all that up together and have it with some pasta.

    On my own so took the dog for a long walk, thought I would treat myself to a small fish and chips from the local. When I got there I found out it's gone out of business, three weeks ago. So I came home and made a pasta bake with mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes and mozzarella. Eaten in front of the TV. Enough left for lunch tomorrow.

    I've salad stuff left over from yesterday so will add a jacket potato, remains of the coleslaw, a couple of hard boiled eggs and maybe a small tin of tuna to eat for dinner.

    Still have almost half of a yummy h/m cheesecake and double cream to polish off too!

    Making kebab-el-alb from North African Cookery by Arto Der Haroutunian pg.123

    It is basically cubed heart... Am using lambs as that is what I have but recipe is for Ox heart. You marinaded it overnight in paprika, cumin and chilli. Will cook over a griddle rather than a barbecue and serve with rice & salad. Looking tasty!

    Indeed I did get some root veg mash out the freezer, with scampi and green beans n broccoli - all from the freezer too. No doubt Chris and Greg would be aghast and having me bread my own scampi or something.
