    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...

    Lunch will be avocado on toast topped with poached eggs and supper this evening will be something Bean based and hopefully Mexican in flavour but not chilli. I have to find a recipe that will fit the ingredients I have in store. Digestive biscuit topped plum crumble and plain skyr for pud and of course a cup of coffee.
    Thumpers mum was right - if you can't find anything nice to say don't say anything at all!

    I found a small cooked chicken leg in the freezer so will make chicken noodle soup for lunch. Tonight we're having bolognese, also from the freezer, with spaghetti and garlic bread.

    Lunch will be some left over chickpea and kale curry served with green beans, and for dinner we'll have some spicy lentil soup which is currently in the slow cooker.

    I've been in the city shopping with my lovely sis.
    Had a fab lunch at Cosmo (all you can eat).
    Star of the show was baked mango yogurt - and I'm not a 'pudding' person.
    Back in town, had a great few hours with lovely friends in the pub.
    And missed the bus home.
    So I have a 15 minute walk home instead of skipping across the road.
    And my feet are killing me.
    And I want a wee.
    Too much food at lunchtime so nothing for me tonight.

    Oh no Pollycat I'm sure the walk burned off the pudding calories though silver lining and all that (hope you made it home without wetting yourself )

    Today I'm being taken out for Mothers' Day. We had curry last night, but takeaway, not the one DH had lovingly cooked as that ended up on the kitchen floor (well all over the kitchen really).

    Kerri - yes, I did make it home OK.

    Tonight will be pork loin chops in mustard and mushroom sauce (home-made), new potatoes and something green (peas, beans, maybe broccoli).

    We're having the jacket potato with tuna mayo which we should have had yesterday but didn't fancy - ended up with a wrap instead!

    Dinner tonight will be a roast pork dinner with loads of roasted veg, mashed swede & peas. One of my favourite roasts.

    He had a sneezing fit as he was about to dish up so was holding the pan handle. So the curry went everywhere including over his arm. DD got the job of sorting the patient, I got the job of clearing up (I think there are still chunks of beef under the washing machine, and the curtains need to come down to be washed still), and future son-in-law got the job of sourcing the takeaway.

    Have decided on chicken stir-fry and prawn alfredo for the two meals I am making this week.

    We went out for coffee this morning, very civilised.

    Lunch was the last of the home made minestrone soup and supper tonight will be the other half of what I made yesterday, a carrot and chick pea tagine with chilli cous cous which was delicious.

    jazee hope OH is ok and no lasting damage from covering his arm in hot curry. Hurrah to future SIL for sourcing the takeaway. Ohhh...now that makes me fancy curry tonight...after I've got meatballs out to defrost. Perhaps I'll get the curry out the freezer for tomorrow instead.
