    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...

    We're out to a posh restaurant for dinner tomorrow night for a family birthday - so something simple tonight - more than likely to be egg and chips.

    I took a big salad to work and had that for lunch, still on my own tonight. I made some granary rolls and made one into a vegetarian hotdog with ketchup and onions and had it whilst I watched the football. Lots of dinner badges by the time I had finished.

    I had a lovely chicken salad out yesterday and we got some pasties from the farm shop we've discovered close to the new house ay will be for our main meal today with some pan fried courgettes from the plots.

    Tonight I'm doing fajitas with my home-made seasoning, pork for the OH, re-fried beans for me - peppers, mushrooms, onions and cheese for the both of us. Salsa, sour cream and guacamole all from squeezy bottles that live in the fridge (I've made salsa and guacamole before - and although they're much nicer, they're not any cheaper, and hard to make in small enough quantities to make it worth it.)

    I'm going to try cutting down his portion slightly to get 3 meals out of the pack of meat instead of 2. Extra veggies to make up for it!

    I might prep some home made rolls to bake tomorrow, as I don't have much to do today. With a bit of cheese, they'll make a lovely lunch.

    Enjoyed my baked spud so much last night, have decided to have another tonight. Instead of cottage cheese I will scoop out the potato and mix with strong cheddar and onion and pop back in the oven to melt. Will have this with fridge raider salad bits left over.

    OH will have another chicken breast. He has very simple tastes and is a very fussy eater so would be happy to eat the same thing every night if I would let him.

    Husband home today. I grilled a chicken breast each for him and daughter. Served with mashed potatoes mixed with spring onions and salad. I had tuna and egg. We had this on Saturday and being superstitious I thought it would work.......

    Really enjoyed our meal out last night - I had the Duo of Welsh lamb, which was excellent. Back to reality today - beans on toast for lunch and a burger and sweet potato fries with salad tonight.

    Wild venison minute steaks with courgettes and leeks. If Mr Stepford feels creative, black peppercorn sauce as well.
