    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...

    It was going to be a freezer dive BUT I've made us the HFW courgettes with pasta and mozzarella cheese to use up a goodly part of the courgette mountain and I've cooked some runner beans German style with dried savoury to flavour them and I'll make a simple French dressing to turn them into a salad to go with the pasta dish. Just been up the garden and picked a container full of blackberries, loganberries and redcurrants, have blueberries in the fridge and that's pudding with some fat free Greek yoghurt, all in the fridge to cool them down.

    He Who Knows is suffering a bit in the heat so I've grounded him for the day and Cookie won't be getting her walk. I'll keep him well hydrated poor old fella and hope he feels better for it!

    Last night's dinner was chicken burger in a bun with oven chips.

    Tonight is bbq'd kebabs made with monkfish cheeks and tiger prawns and possibly some sausages (depends how many kebabs I can make) along with some leftover rolls and some salad from the greenhouse.

    Saturday, watched the football, visited my parents, came home and we had salad. With a few actifry wedges.
    Today we went for a walk round the town, popped into supermarket, I wanted some granary bread flower. Picked up a big chicken reduced to half price.
    That was cooked for tea and I steamed some new potatoes, green beans, brussell sprouts (bought reduced on Thursday, but from south Africa!!), carrot and broad beans(also reduced) reheated a piece of nut roast and a couple of stuffing balls.
    I have enjoyed my weekend, they pass so quickly.

    Might be a bit odd tonight - defrosted some grilling cheese and it didn't get used at bbq so I'll do it for tea tonight, I'll probably treat it like steaks and do potatoes and veg with it

    Chilli dusted grilled salmon with a puy lentil and sweet potato salad that also has rocket and feta cheese in all in an orange vinaigrette dressing. Blueberries and fat free Greek yoghurt for pudding and the usual cup of coffee.

    was able to make enough kebabs from the monkfish and prawns so it will be sausages for us tonight. Not sure what with yet as too hot to even think about food. Maybe sausages and ice cream at this rate

    OH - who is poacher turned gamekeeper since he had his stents - doesn't want the cheese as it's too fatty, so I'll do some of the YS salmon I bought today!
