    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...

    we'll be having something based around the chicken strips that are in our fridge. Depending on who cooks, it will either be chicken pasta (me) or chicken in a more basic pasta sauce, but still homemade, with garlic bread (oh).

    Leek and potato soup for lunch today with a couple of different home made salads for me and probably He Who Knows too but he might want a sandwich instead.

    Supper tonight will be a Risotto with leeks, bacon and mushrooms as that's what I have left to use up, pudding will be the last of a blackberry and apple crumble I made him with some Greek yoghurt and our usual cup of black coffee.

    Lentil soup for lunch and I have a Mexican beef in the slow cooker, using the Quorn steak strips we dug out of the freezer. DD2 will have her's with rice and I will just have the beef. DD1 is eating out after work, so doesn't need anything preparing

    Chicken drumstick, bit of bread sauce from the freezer, some LO new potatoes and iceberg lettuce - oh and a lump of french stick. Totally uninspiring but CBA at all.
