    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...

    No they weren't but must be on SO across the SMs

    must be. I grabbed some POTW cherry tomatoes in lidl today. They've refitted our local store which totally threw me, they have taller style freezers and chillers now, which I don't really like as they make the place feel claustrophobic, and moved the fruit and veg to the front of the store like a traditional supermarket. Problem is that's the section that's always a bottleneck so putting it at the front of the store doesn't really seem wise. I guess time will tell.

    Anyway, finally stocked up in lidl, Iceland and sainsbobs today, spent about £90 in all but the cupboards and fridge / freezer really were bare so we're well stocked now for the foreseeable.

    Tonight's dinner was cold chicken and mushroom pie from the other night (sounds grim but is actually really nice cold) with peas. OH had pasta.

    We had lovely Indian food for lunch at a Country Fair we had Channa Masala, Muttar Paneer and Pilau Rice and a samosa each mine veggie and his lamb followed by a fresh fruit frozen yoghurt, delicious!

    We're having a little BBQ for supper with some burgers from the freezer, some chipolata sausages and a nice crispy salad.

    We got the BBQ out here for the first time this year too, well not so much out as it's the centre pit of the garden table, but first time using it. Had some No Bull burgers from Iceland with salad and a few chips. Little naughty bowl of ice cream for pud.

    Not posted for a few days.
    Friday - out all day so a takeaway fish & chip supper
    Saturday - pasta with mushrooms, peppers, onion & bacon
    Sunday - cheese salad
    Tonight - fry-up (more grilled) with sausage, bacon, eggs, mushrooms & tinned tomatoes.
    The bacon is from a 60p pack of Tesco cooking bacon. It had 2 thick pieces. I used one for the pasta. The other was a sort-of inch thick bacon chop that we part cooked in the oven then finished off in the frying pan. Rested, then sliced and shared.

    Salad for lunch with a toasted cheese sandwich and I'm making pasta this evening with a tomato sauce using some of our home growns from the freezer, He Who Knows is muttering about how much there is in the smaller one in the garage and would like it used before we move (if that ever happens) rather than compost heap it! He's a thrifty lad!

    Made a load of salads and a quiche yesterday, used up tinned beans and other bits, had that yesterday and again today and for lunch tomorrow. It seemed a good idea at the time but I will be glad when it's gone.

    Chilli chicken with veg noodles tonight, maybe a spring roll or 2.

    I have had a cold for nearly a month now, it's coming in bits, first it was light sniffles, then bad cough, last week was a snotty nose, this week it's the sorest throat I have ever known - wish it would just go away......
