It's treat day today:

Steak mix of sirloin and rump(butcher didn't have enough rump for 2), stir fried cabbage with red onion and garlic (OH speciality) and OH is having saute potatoes and I am having thin frozen chips. Followed by stewed apple and raspberry ( home grown) with scones as a cobbler type thing. Just made the scones. Washed down with a nice red plonk.

OH having chicken curry, well it's Saturday so its curry, I am having an Asda ready meal, I love curry but it doesn't love me, so I always have to have something else. This sounds really boring compared to your meal bjay, so I will have to have extra wine to compensate



Some lovely dinners already mentioned here which has made me more hungry than I already was!

Left over Hash for me tonight with pancakes, it is better the day after though.

Another one from the depths of the freezer - Tesco light chicken with tomato & basil sauce, with pasta. Soon I'm off to a Scottish country dance, it's a bit of an obsession of mine (is 3-4 nights a week an obsession? ......  Yes probably!)  At the interval we'll have a gorgeous tea - loads of home-made bits & pieces; all the naughty stuff that we're not allowed at home .  As people go to such trouble it would be rude to refuse .

Ah well, off to put on the glad-rags, tea beckons........


I was inspired by Nigel Slater and have cooked a fish chowder with swede.

Tuna & pasta bake, salad and french bread - too full for afters!

Well Jeannie with all that exercise you can eat what you like .  Does watching Strictly count ???

Good idea for a foodie thread (I look forward to lots of festive fare in due course )

Had turkey and vegetable stir-fry tonight - made a spicy sauce for it with own chillies, fresh from GH.  Funny old year for peppers with varied results, but these chillies are unusually small, but blimey!  they are HOT!  Lip tingling, tongue tingling, thirst-making chilli sauce!  (But very, very good).

Looking in the fridge saw two big bunches of leeks that needed using so on went a big pot of Leek and Potato soup. Start it with lardons of bacon and onion chopped in the pan then finely chopped veg followed by the potato sweat it all for ten minutes add the garlic and chicken stock plus seasoning paprika and herbs, simmer blitz and some nice chunky bread a good starter. I had to make the chicken pie as well, Daughter left two cakes and took some pie.
Fresh Pork tomorrow.

Is it miserable outside Leggi? Leek and potato any time for me and it's a beautiful day here. Try leek and asparagus too, 10 minuties and it's all done.

Roast lamb tonight. Should have done it last night but had sausage and mash instead.

Roast beef with all the trimmings today along with a red wine or two.   Followed by home made apple pie with cream for me and ice-cream for him.

Salad tomorrow, to use up the remains, along with Asda seeded chiabatta, the only time we eat white bread



Yes Pennine it is miserable outside, it's that fine rain that I used to only associate with Cornwall, and it's been like it all day.

Leek and asparagus soup sounds lovely, will keep an eye out for some when I'm next at the shops.


beautiful day in torquay,sitting at the harbour eating fish and chips out of the paper yum yum 

Sunny and hot here, so I went for a healthy option, today's tea was tuna salad followed by rubarb and apple yogurt, eaten on the patio, which made a change, can't say there have been many days where it's been nice enough to sit outdoors.  . 


today its sauseage and mash with onion gravy cos its getting cold  and am making good old fashioned spotty dick and custard


chicken stir fry with noodles. Followed by fromage frais with fruit.

 OH does nearly all the cooking as had ashoulder op last year and although fine he likes to. He also makes bread - in a machine - but having trouble getting a good rise we think it's quality ofbread flour so experiments going on at moment to check if we are right
