    What are you making for dinner 2018. 10th Jan 18 at 12:20 AM
    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...

    Dinner ended up being beef casserole from the freezer and a giant Yorkshire pudding for me, OH had been picking and I made cheese on toast earlier so he wasn't hungry.

    Stir fry bumped to tomorrow.

    maddiemay - thanks for the recipe.

    Tonight is a new-for-us recipe.
    Home made doner kebab from the Eat Well for Less programme.
    I spotted some harrissa pitta breads in Mr T's so thought they'd go really well.
    Might do a few home-made wedges to go with it.

    Leek, cheese and potato pastry-topped pie for us tonight. There was a re-run of the Mary Berry cookery programme last week in which she made this, and it reminded me how much we enjoyed it last time I cooked it.

    Yesterday, had the remainder of the steak pie for lunch and then enjoyed an 'all day breakfast' for dinner, with fresh fruit for dessert.

    Tonight we're having pizza served with fried bacon, mushrooms and tomatoes, and fresh fruit for dessert.

    I was lucky enough to find a lovely piece of Ox Cheek in the YS section of Mr.T this morning and it has been simmering away in a very slow oven with carrots, onions and celery all afternoon. I'll serve it with cauliflower cheese mash, green beans and sweetcorn and a few previously cooked but chucked in the casserole new potatoes. Cooked some home grown gooseberries from the freezer yesterday which I've turned into a crumble with a crushed digestive biscuit topping which will be pudding with some plain skyr.

    Lunch today will be the last two portions of butternut risotto made a couple of days ago and supper this evening will be bean burgers, sweet potato oven fries and a salad as I have all I need in to make these, pudding if we want it is gooseberry crumble.

    Sadly butternut risotto was smelly when I got it from the fridge so has gone to feed the birds. Lunch will be the very last of the leek soup with cold meat.

    Spaghetti and cherry tomato sauce for lunch with a side salad.

    Leftover red lentil curry and rice for dinner tonight. I do fancy some mango chutney, but I want to have 3 NSDs this week so I will go without.

    Our meals for the next two days will be 'surprise pie' as we're setting off soon to look after DGD and DGS while DS and DiL are away to attend a farewell and so will be eating whatever they've left for us in the fridge/freezer.

    Lunch today was the last of the 2 pea soup with bread. Dinner tonight will be a sausage pilaf with roasted vegetables - this is a new to me recipe so hope it's nice as it's fairly cheap to make.

    Fish fingers, sweet potato mash and beans for OH / kale for me.

    Also grilling the other 4 mushroom and caramelised onion sausages while I have the grill on - will have 2 with lunch tomorrow and turn 2 into a mini casserole thing (will chop them to go further) to use up some stout I have LO and a portion of cranberry and port sauce from xmas in the freezer with some kind of casserole veg combo. That can go in the freezer then for a later date.
