    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 is still on his pasta fest so has had two bowls of that.

    I had the last portion of the oxtail casserole with some LO rice from the other night.

    Food budget getting tight so trying to use things up before buying more.

    Diced beef with onions, tomatoes, garlic and herbs in the slow cooker.
    I'll fry an aubergine in olive oil and add it towards the end.

    Served with savoyard potatoes.

    Beans on toast for lunch today and supper tonight will be shepherds pie and veg. Fat free yoghurts for pudding and a cup of black coffee afterwards.
    Thumpers mum was right - if you can't find anything nice to say don't say anything at all!

    Lunch today is the last of the butcher's bacon in a BLT roll. Dinner tonight will be chicken stir fry with loads of veg and noodles. Think I'll do some baking this afternoon, so a bakewell tart looks likely for pud.

    OH had some LO pasta tonight, and I had a portion of lasagne that was in the freezer with some petit pois. Nice and easy dinners.

    A bit late to do any cooking tonight. I had, salad leaves, cucumber, tomato, a microwaved spud, and two large FR fried eggs. Oh, and a dollop of mayo. It has filled me up.

    My home is full of second hand furniture that other people have thrown out. I wear other people's clothes bought from car boot sales and charity shops. I eat out of date (yellow sticker) food. And I will jump in a skip if there is anything in there that I can rescue. I love my brilliant life on a pension.
