  • Lunch today was a continuation of yesterdays "use up the last of the Christmas cheese" drive... Wensleydale with apricot & amaretto, Watercress and tomato sandwiches. oh and a big ole hunk of Christmas cake

    Supper today will be a wrap filled with spicy beef and loads of veg. all served with some smokey potato wedges.

    • Mixed things up for lunch a bit today. Cheese, Carrot Apple and raisins, all mixed with yoghurt and curry powder in a wrap.

      Supper tonight - Friday night is curry night! and very possibly a few cold, fermented beverages.

      Have a nice weekend all!

        • Well Wednesday's Sweet and sour chicken experiment with rice noodles was a definite success (my husband ate too much). So I will definitely be making it again in the future.
          Last night was pasta bake, garlic bread and salad.
          Tonight another experiment. Pork tenderloin with garlic honey sauce, mashed potatoes, carrots and cabbage.
          .........When I get bored at the moment I seem to spend time looking at recipes on Google.
          Cherry and almond loaves in the oven at the moment.

          • Lunch: soupy pasta dish, mandarines for afters.
            Supper: not sure... Better not be soup seeing as that's what we effectively had for lunch. It's what I had planned but typing it out here suddenly made me realise not a good idea. Will ponder further.

            • Looks like hot soupy/stewy food will be the order of the weekend. Today will be Doro Wat from the freezer with misir wat. Good and hot in both senses. Tomorrow will probably be a rerun of yesterday.

              Suppers will be soups. Leek and potato tonight, split pea tomorrow.

              Hope to catch you Monday, snow permitting. Enjoy your assorted delights meanwhile. Glad to have you join us on this thread, peteyd, by the way. Good to have extra inspiration.

                • Last night's pork tenderloin experiment was a flop. It was tough and horrible. And then to add insult to injury I was up half the night with upset stomach.
                  Tonight will be fish pie ( bland but nice I hope), carrots and french beans.

                    • Pity about that gf.

                      My failsafe pork tenderloin recipe is typically french.
                      Gently fry onions in butter on low heat, when cooked and starting to caramelise turn up heat and throw in slices of tenderloin ( the size of slices of garlic bread) and as soon as they are just cooked add in heated stewed apple , a very large dollop - or two or three or more... of thick cream . Add salt and pepper to taste. Yum. We have it regularly !

                      And now I'm drooling at the thought of that....

                      • I was going to make an omelette tonight and have it with a big salad and a few chips, but one of the avocados I bought (reduced) yesterday is now perfectly ripe and avocado goes so well with prawns that I think I may change to prawn and hard boiled egg salad (with Rose Marie dressing) and a few chips and maybe a slice of bread and butter (chip butty).
                        Pudding is sorted. I got a surprise bottle of prosecco and some cupcakes and chocolate goodies delivered this morning to munch while we have a skype birthday party for a relative tonight.

                              • Mince and onions with remains of yesterdays dinner,swede,cabbage and mashed potato. I bought lean mince which I thought would be healthier but without the fat content it seems 'stringy'?
