    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...

    We're lunching at Yo Sushi today, he who has to do some errands nearby and suggested it as it's Blue Monday where the dishes, some 45 of them are all 2.80 each instead of the normal varied prices.

    Supper tonight will be beans on toast, fat free yoghurt to follow and cup of coffee.

    Tonight I'm cooking Pastitsio - one of my favourite dishes on holiday.
    Mama Alexandra makes the best ever.
    On our first day on holiday, it's what I always have.

    I might buy some of the long pasta they use for it when I'm over there next time.

    We're having moussaka tonight with chips and salad. It's homemade by DH but from the freezer so really easy for us.

    We're having Asian-inspired steamed fish tonight. I did something similar about three weeks ago and we really enjoyed it. This time I will be using a pack of frozen basa fillets (about 2 from Aldi) and will be steaming them with garlic, ginger, lemongrass, red chilli, lime and soy.

    Pudding is a home made tiramisu, leftover from yesterday.

    Islandmaid - have a great time.
    Are you going to Cadiz? I watched Rick Stein's Long Weekends and it looked a lovely place.
    I just have Thessaloniki and Palermo to watch.

    Weekend was a lovely weekend of food:

    Saturday:
    Homemade guac, tortilla chips, white bean and sqash chilli and rice

    Sunday:
    Mushroom bourgignon, mash, green veg, vegan ice cream, choc pud and berries.

    Mum is off on hols this week so dropped me off a bag of fresh fruit, veg and some tofu and rye bread. I think tonight will be veggie sausages, spuds and fresh veg (whatever she's given us!). I also might make some mushroom and lentil spag bol for tomorrow night as I'm crossfitting so won't have much time and will be starving when I get in.

    I noticed this morning that the flowering currant was starting to bud: therefore spring is (hopefully) upon us.

    That being the case I decided to have a salad - cold roast shoulder of pork (yesterday's - sorry, I forgot), hard boiled eggs, pickled onions, baby beetroot, chunks of Double Gloucester & coleslaw (bought - no time).

    Home made lentil and tomato soup for lunch with chicken for me and a corned beef sandwich for He Who Knows. Supper this evening will be spaghetti Bolognese (made with quorn mince), fresh fruit and low fat Greek yoghurt and our usual cup of coffee.

    Tonight will be chilli as OH opted for LO pasta bake last night (i had super noodles with added sweetcorn...how bad is that!)

    I also want to use up the curry and rice that's in the freezer this week so that will either be tomorrow or Thursday I think.

    Well, the pastitsio was OK but we decided we preferred moussaka or mince, aubergine & orzo for the same amount of 'faffing'.

    Out all day visiting family so quick n easy garlic Kiev's, mash (home-made) and baked beans tonight.

    I was going to make Singapore noodles for dinner, but think I will have it for lunch instead.

    I need to go out and buy some peppers and frozen peas.

    I've just shoved a HM pizza in the oven to cook.

    I tend to make this when I need to make a loaf; I can do the pizza dough first, then put the bread on afterwards. Means the breadmaker gets 2 uses out of being hauled down from it's "home" atop the fridge/freezer.

    Our standard topping, if anyone cares, is tomato puree, grated extra extra mature Cheddar, diced onion, chopped up Qu0rn bacon-style slices, sliced tomato and fresh pineapple chunks.
