    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 was a pesto and goats cheese focaccia thing from Lidl with a handful of twiglets and green detox smoothie which tasted as green as it looked...quickly remedied with a twix (well Lidl version of one )

    OH wanted pasta AGAIN for dinner so that's what he has, I cooked myself some spaghetti so we could split the sauce (jar that was open in the fridge ) and then I threw in the remaining LO tapas tub in mine (balsamic olives, pepper bits and a ball of goats cheese) added some grated cheddar on top and a drizzle of olive oil. Was actually very nice.

    I have a jar of lemongrass and ginger coconut curry sauce in the cupboard so tempted to try that tomorrow with some prawns, baby corn and mange tout from the freezer....I am suspecting OH will continue on his current theme.

    Weeelllll OH had pasta...yet again.

    I 'cooked' some prawns, baby corn (tad freezer burnt) and mange tout in the lemongrass and ginger sauce - which was ok. However I tried some Merchant Gormet mixed grains and seaweed rice....lets just say I know why it was on offer I'll eat most things but this was just yuk - so sadly half my dinner went in the bin and I just had a cheese and chutney sandwich. Other pack of rice will go off to the food bank, hopefully there's someone who will like it. I on the other hand can still taste the seaweed now

    Tomorrow I'll prob have the other half of the sauce / prawns etc....with some more normal rice.

    I'm at a friend's tonight. DH and DD will have the choice of beans on toast, mixed veggie curry and/or gujarati cabbage and potato curry (got the recipe from the Guardian online). Suspect DD will have beans and DH will have curries!
