    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 had a fried egg in a wholemeal bap for breakfast - delicious if a little naughty.

    First time I've tried it - I've never been a cereal person, I tend to have porridge - but it was cheap in a local shop.
    Quite enjoyed it.

    Lunch will be pita bread stuffed with shredded lettuce and red cabbage, sliced cucumber, tomatoes & onion and wafer-thin chicken drizzled with Ancona hot pepper sauce.

    Dinner will be home made corned beef hash with sliced tiger bread spread with 'proper' butter.

    Main meal at lunchtime today as DD2 and partner are coming today and don't want to be too late home. We're having roast gammon joint, roast potatoes, various roasted veggies, mashed swede, green beans & peas & gravy.

    Probably just have some soup this evening.

    A tuna and cheese panini, with coffee, from Costas for breakfast (turning into a bit of a weekly treat! I like to take a book and make an hour of it. I enjoy it so much, I figure it's worth the 6).
    I had 2 fried eggs on toast for lunch, despite not really being hungry... But I had some lovely fresh bread and eggs from Waitrose, and it seemed a shame not to crack on with eating them!
    That will probably be enough for me, as meals go. But there'll probably be snacking later on this eve.
    Because it's fun to have money!

    Not sure I am allowed to copy the Gusto recipe but it was cooked Basa fish, boiled potatoes mashed together with olive oil and a few chopped spring onion. The spring greens were fried in butter with some white wine vinegar, a drop of water, put cooked fish cakes (in Panko) on top of greens, and some butter mayonnaise, (butter in fry pan, curry powder, put into little dish, add mayo, mix,) then pour over fish cakes, top with a little more spring onion. Hope this makes sense, I was not very good at making the fish cakes which is why I do not make as a rule and am not keen on spring greens either, but it all tasted very good, only ate half of pack of veg etc. and ate 2 of the fish cakes, other 2 in freezer. Look forward to the 2nd half in a few days.

    I ended up turning the gammon into a pasta as we had run out of chips, combining with chopped onion, garlic and red pepper and adding tinned tomatoes. We'll probably be having chicken kiev for tea tonight.

    Dinner last night was chicken and parma ham pasta.

    Still got some parma ham left so tonight will be chicken breasts wrapped in parma ham, with crispy potatoes, green beans and mini broccoli.

    The current intention is to have an all in* curry on egg fried rice (the original intention was for a full Sunday roast dinner) followed by cheeseboard and industrial strength black coffee.

    *literally 'all in' - chicken fillets, onions, leeks, garlic, tomatoes, potatoes, and anything else lurking about
