    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...

    There were a couple of cold jacket potatoes left from Thursday, I seperated the skins from the potatoes and roasted them. The roast potatoes were delicious, like proper old style ones my granny used to make. We had chicken, stuffing, carrots, spring greens, peas and green beans with gravy.
    I made a rice pudding whilst the oven was on from a litre of milk I got from the m and s local for 10p.

    Making the most of the LO lamb roast today. Will be making a shepherds pie with half of it (4 portions) and a lamb & chickpea tagine with the other hope (at least 4 portions but hopefully 6!).

    So that will be at least 2 meals but possibly 3 into the freezer for DH and myself!

    I'm making a new to me recipe from the BBC food website - fish pie with a filo pastry top. I'll adapt it a bit as haven't got any cream in the fridge so will use some quark instead. Won't be using white wine either but have some white wine stockpots so will use that instead.

    It will definitely be less calories than the original recipe, LOL!

    Celery soup in SC, will give portion to neighbour who is veggie and gives me hm curry etc so have ensured the soup is veggie. Am taking some sort of hm mince meal out of freezer for tonight as well as a small bowl of something Asian which said neighbour gave me yesterday. Have done inventory of utility room freezer as it needs replacing soon so am making big effort to get as much eaten as possible. Dgs will be here for a couple of days so a pkt of Icelan chicken & prawn paella can be eaten Wed evening, we will be doing lunch out so the frozen meal will be ample for us (he eats like a horse these days). Did make a lemon drizzle cake (minus drizzle) in couple of mugs, microwave puds, so will have a couple of portions left for either tomorrow or Thursday lunchtime treat.

    There's quite a lot of milk - more than I could drink today - rice pudding is a good shout - might have to see what I can freeze it in and gradually use up.

    Islandmaid does your impossible pie use cream or milk? I must try and find that recipe.

    Is it impossible quiche?

    I think it's an Australian recipe.

    I'm away with work, takeaway nandos in a hotel room and a trifle from Morrison's for afterwards.
