    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...

    Homemade chilli here, with rice and a crisp salad. Made it late last night. Always think chilli is nicer on the second day!

    Chicken tikka is slow cooking for when my girls finish work. They can sort their own rice out, later. I'm having a portion of the vegetable curry I cooked earlier

    Lunch today will be some more leek and potato soup as I've just made another batch to use up flowering leeks from the garden, supper this evening will be salmon steaks in the Foreman grill and I'll sprinkle them liberally with Za'attar seasoning before I cook then (it's delicious) and we'll have them with new potatoes, steamed broccoli, peas and green beans. Berries and Greek yoghurt for pudding and our usual cup of black coffee to finish.

    House offer accepted here and an offer made on a delicious house in our chosen area, waiting to hear if it's accepted now!

    Oh, many congrats Mrs LW! You must be very pleased and excited.

    Busy day here with a later than normal finish, so we need a quick and easy supper. I'm planning to chuck some fish fillets which I've dusted with spices and panko breadcrumbs into the oven and serve with a few chips and maybe some mushy peas. Strawberries and cream for pud.

    'twas the best of times ... 'twas the worst of times ...

    Not technically a 'bad' day when weighed in the great balance, but certainly not the best I've ever had by a long chalk.

    Allied to a bad attack of CBA it was time for comfort food ... without cooking.

    Dinner was ... *hangs head in shame* ... 2 sausage roll sandwiches with the butter melted into the brown (HP of course) sauce.

    Not a culinary masterpiece ... but just what I needed and certainly hit the spot!

    Hope tomorrow is a better day, sometimes you need a good portion of comfort food.

    He Who Knows is going fishing today so he's got a sweet potato falafel wrap and other things for a packed lunch and I will fridge forage for my lunch and use up some 'ends'.

    Supper this evening will be some YS cheese and broccoli burgers I found in the Co-Op yesterday in wholemeal rolls with a lovely mixed salad and some new potatoes. Berries and Greek yoghurt for pudding and our usual cup of black coffee.

    Undecided on what I'm going to eat today. Feeling bleurgh

    There's a turkey drumstick in one sc and a gammon joint in the other, which my girls can have when they finish work - or they still have some curry left over. I might settle for an omelette perhaps.
