  • I'm sure we can make up for them between us Snoop!!!

    Tonight we had frittata using up left overs from the BBQ last night.
    I had stewed down some windfalls with some blackcurrants for pud but was too full.
    Looks like that and homemade yog will be breakfast tomorrow instead.

    • Tonight was:
      Sweetcorn.
      Prawn and vegetable curry with naan.
      It would have been apple and raspberry crumble with custard for pudding but we were too full.

      Just going to get a couple of chicken legs out of the freezer for tomorrow.

      • Lunch: tomato and tuna salad, yogurt for pud.
        Supper: lentil soup and a custard for pud (can't keep calling them crme no caramel, and an egg custard suggests pastry).

        Bread as well, plus some Spanish madeleines if I can find the time.

          • Salmon fillets with roasties and a selection of veg.

            And when your back stops aching,
            And your hands begin to harden.
            You will find yourself a partner,
            In the glory of the garden.

            • No madeleines yesterday but custards and a dried fruit compote. Forgotten how much I like the compote. Guest asked if I'd made it myself. I had to own up and said I'd opened a few packets! Five mins at pressure, assorted dried fruit plus apple juice, a bit of lemon peel and some cinnamon. It's hardly a recipe!

              Lunch: salmon with peas and rice
              Supper: green soup, more compote for pud

              Extras: bread, yogurt and maybe some ginger and fruit biscuits.

              • Fridge clearance salad buffet for us this evening - got so many bitsn'bobs needing using up
                Mainly ham, eggs, cucs , toms...will need to be inventive so it doesn't just turn into another tumble salad ( plan B! )

                Fresh pears for pud.

                • Last night was roast chicken legs, ratatouille, sweetcorn (nearly finished now), beer battered onion rings and garlic bread.
                  Fruit crumble and custard.
                  I think tonight will be sausage and mash, onion gravy, carrots and french beans. (I thought they were nearly finished but the warm weather has produced a new batch of flowers)

                  • Didn't make the biscuits but the Spanish-style madeleines instead (more like buns, made with sunflower oil, not butter). Different recipe, but the best one yet. Ate some, gave some away, bunged the rest in the freezer.

                    Lunch: home-made burger (pork with Italian sausage seasoning) and some kind of veg from freezer
                    Supper: paella my way with dried fruit compote for afters if we've got enough room

                    Bread request from friend, so a loaf for him and another for us while the oven's hot.
                    Seed crackers maybe? Got some of last year's red peppers still in the freezer so could maybe turn those into a dip.

                    • Another bbq tonight, plus a tomato and cucumber salad
                      Duck breast for a change.
                      Will cook too much and use some in a spicy Chinese noodle soup tomorrow.

                      Fresh pears for pud.

                      • Slight change of plan ^^^^
                        We worked too late to be bothered with a bbq so I made a duck breast stir fry instead.

                        Tonight will be a bbq as it’s supposed to be the last warm day...pork chops ,halloumi cheese, grilled courgette with yogurt ... with salad

                        fresh fruit salad for pud if I can’t get around to making a rhubarb and jelly ‘trifle’

                        • On my own for lunch: peanut butter on walnut bread toast. And a bun or two...
                          Supper: paella my way (with little pork meat balls and chicken wings this time). The locals would really call this arroz (rice) as it bears no relation to paella whatsoever. Jamie Oliver would have got away with his chicken and chorizo 'paella' here if he'd called it arroz con pollo y chorizo. You can chuck anything in a rice dish called arroz, but not paella.

                          • I could really fancy a paella with everything in it including lots of seafood. The mere thought is enough to set my stomach rumbling.

                            Last night was prawn curry and naan bread followed by Eve's pudding.

                            Tonight will pimientos de Pdron, sweetcorn, salmon baked with lemon and capers, potato scallops, French beans and carrots and homemade tartare sauce.
                            Leftover Eve's pudding.

                            • Lunch: chicken gyros sandwich. Maybe a bluberry frozen yogurt.
                              Supper: squisotto and salad.

                              More Spanish madeleines and bread for friends and the freezer. Got a hankering for ginger biscuits too. Didn't make them the other day but I can already smell them...
