    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...

    Sweet corn and yellow pepper soup for lunch and lamb hotpot with petit pois for dinner. Wondering if it's too soon to crack into the stollen.

    Trying out the 'No bull' vegan burgers from Iceland with homegrown lettuce as the wrap rather than a bread roll. Having McCain sweet potato wedges on the side rather than traditional chips, along with YS steamed broccoli. Rounded out with a salad of lettuce, cherry tomatoes and onion.

    My OH is a meat eater but he thought this was one of the best veg burgers that he's ever had and I've cooked him quite a few lol.

    Will have to try the No bull vegan burgers as DH is not a fan of veggie burgers at all, although I quite often like to eat them (usually home made rather than bought).

    I baked them as I had the oven on for the chips but they probably would have been better fried.

    OH said that if they would have been on the BBQ smothered in cheese and BBQ sauce along with the lettuce, tomato and onion they would have compared to a 'proper' burger.

    Regular price is 2 per 2 pack of quarter pounders so probably homemade ones are much better on the price front but I found these ok from a convenience/health standpoint.

    Highly recommend giving them a try, Iceland does occasionally put them on special offer.

I've had some horrible vege burgers over the years but only last week someone served these up for me and they were very nice. Can't say if they tasted like a meat based burger should taste but they had a nice savoury taste and a good texture. I'll definitely going to get some of these for myself.

    I'll be making some lentil, red pepper and tomato soup for our lunch today and this evening will involve pie! I'm not sure yet what kind of pie but it must be PIE with mash and greens and gravy. Having a craving!

    OH is having some HM Yellow Split Pea & Ham Soup with Crusty Bread - he'll probably want some sandwiches a bit later. And ............... don't laugh - I'm having a Honey Roast Ham Salad .

    I've not been over the doorstep all day, so it's not that I'm coming home out of the chill of the weather.

    We had them in the summer (OH is veggie) - did them on the BBQ and they were nice. Like mentioned, I wouldn't mix them up with a meat burger but still tasty. We have another pack in the freezer that I bought recently.

    We had smoked haddock with carrots, cauliflour, mashed potatoes and cheese sauce. Pudding was a single shortbread biscuit and a pear each.

    I made Lentil, tomato and red pepper soup yesterday for our lunches for a couple of days, mine with cold chicken HWK's with a scotch egg. Supper tonight will be a steak and ale pie I got from our good butcher in the village, was very expensive but very heavy and will make us main meals for two days. We'll have it with mash and peas today and with roast potatoes and sprouts and carrots tomorrow . Pudding will be plum crumble if it's wanted and our usual coffee.
