    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...

    Lentil and Tomato Soup for lunch again today, usual accompaniments and for supper this evening we're having a pasta salad to use up some chorizo and odds and ends I have in the fridge dressed with a balsamic vinegar vinaigrette which will make a nice change after all the winter style foods of late.

    He Who Knows rebelled at 'More soup?1 so we had vegetable stir fry for lunch and very nice it was too!

    Veggie chilli (dehydrated soya mince, sweetcorn, kidney beans) and rice.

    Lunch is leftovers from dinner: tofu, mushroom and cabbage curry (much nicer than it sounds - mum's on hols for the 4th time this year(!) and dropped round fresh stuff that needed using so I curried it all).

    Will be out for lunch with daughter, got a free birthday meal voucher, and have taken a small beef joint from freezer, added half green pepper and some carrots + seasoning of course and that is now in SC. Will be enough to last over weekend of freeze surplus. Had chicken last 2 days so fancied a change and really needed to get something out of freezer.

    Have fab time. Watched Rick in Thessaloniki last night, that looked a nice place too. Great dish of lamb, aubergines and red peppers.

    Tonight we're having gammon, new potatoes and eggs.
