    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...

    OH had tomato soup when he got in from work.

    I've just had some mini Thai salmon fish cakes and breaded prawns with vegetable rice. Surprisingly nice.

    Tomorrow I think it's some vegetable / quorn curry with naan bread.

    I'm going to make some home made bean based burgers for our main meal today, probably black beans as I have some that need using up and I have some cooked jacket potatoes to re-heat and will make a red cabbage coleslaw to go with it all. I'll also be making plum crumble to use up the last of some stewed plums from a couple of days ago so an emptier fridge at the end of it all.

    Tonight is curry, gong to do some potatoes and carrots with a jar of Tikka (lazy curry) and I'll stir through some spinach in mine (OH doesn't like spinach much so prob none for him unless I can sneak a bit in) Will see if there's anything else I can throw in too. And some naan bread.
