I know it's early but my mind is turning to food.

I'm spoilt for choice as had an Ocado delivery yesterday and picked up a few odds and ends today - decisions, decisions! smile

Me too, thinking of food smile. Tonight it's chopped smoked bacon, leeks and mushrooms with creme fraiche. Served with pasta.

I'm doing fish fingers, oven chips and mushy peas. I normally cook a proper dinner but I have a headache and no one is particularly bothered by fish fingers, so I'm going for that!

A Gousto recipe of chicken and chorizo pie, with creamy mash and green vegetables.

DiscoGran Thu 23-Sep-21 16:31:12

We are having sausage and scrambled eggs. I'd rather have what Jane Judge is having, but on low carb at the moment. 😕
Having lunch out tomorrow though, at a nice Turkish place 😊

Boiled gammon, greens, potatoes and parsley sauce, followed by apple crumble and double cream.

Minestrone soup with a wholemeal roll, followed by fruit and yoghurt. Not too much fruit though. If I don’t watch what I eat I suffer at bedtime.

DiscoGran Thu 23-Sep-21 16:46:15

Oh, apple crumble and cream.......... I'm going to avoid this thread now, before I weaken.

Mmmmm all nice so far!
Have had a busy baking day so don’t want to do much for dinner this evening, so quiche and a dressed salad (ingredients from the garden,)

Jaxjacky Thu 23-Sep-21 16:52:32

Using the freezer so separate meals tonight..a pain…meatballs on pasta for MrJ, fish pie with broccoli and carrots for me, he doesn’t like fish.

Mushroom and spinach pizza and salad. DH will be late home so it will be a late evening meal (not so good for my digestion).

MrsTagain Thu 23-Sep-21 16:55:20

I'm vegetarian, I don't eat anything with a face! It looks as if I'm in the minority here. (Probably having a reduced price Co-op pizza for dinner.)

Sar53 Thu 23-Sep-21 16:55:40

I'm looking after 3 granddaughters so it's pizza and garlic bread with cucumber for one and peas and sweetcorn for the others.
We did have Homemade bolognese sauce and pasta last night so it's not all bad 😋😀😉

Beef casserole with mashed potatoes and runner beans. I don't eat puddings, much as I love them.

Mollygo Thu 23-Sep-21 17:11:09

Fruit juice, then Teriyaki salmon with edamame bean and cabbage stir fry and noodles. It’s really filling so just Magnum minis for dessert. Since I discovered Farmfoods sell 2 boxes for £4 instead of the local supermarket £2.75 for one box, I nearly always have some to hand.

tanith Thu 23-Sep-21 17:19:19

My once a month treat grilled thick cut crispy bacon, egg, fried tomatoes, beans and a slice of toasted granary bread to mop up the eggs and beans. At least I forgo the fried bread which I crave especially with fried tomatoes. Sugar free jelly for dessert. The beef casserole sounds delicious.

Home made fish cakes and fresh spinach done in the steamer
then probably eat a satsuma and an apple. Feeling a bit healthy
and have resisted the temptation to go and get a chip butty from the chip shop.

Bit different we are having goat burgers , they are from a local farm and we haven't tried them before going to serve with home made oven chips and mushrooms in a creamy sauce.

crazyH Thu 23-Sep-21 17:26:47

Stroganoff and potatoes

harrigran Thu 23-Sep-21 17:41:45

Fillet steak with mushrooms and saute potatoes.

Jaxjacky Thu 23-Sep-21 18:30:47

Goat burgers sound lovely 62Granny we like goat curry.

GrannyGravy13 Thu 23-Sep-21 18:48:29

So far in my kitchen this evening, one chicken Kiev and salad, Haloumi Fries, baked beans and salad (DD & GC)

When they are done I will cook saltimboco (pork escalope wrapped in Parma ham with sage) (sp) with new potatoes and veggies for DH & I along with a chilled Chilean White Wine

NotAGran55 Thu 23-Sep-21 18:55:19

Feta and beetroot salad followed by mango , raspberries and kefir.
