I'm just back from the dentist after having two replacement fillings - apart from being a couple of hundred pounds poorer I'm still a bit numb so can't eat for a while.

I'm going to spend the afternoon batch-cooking - there's an aubergine parmigiana in the offing, various roast vegetables, and pork steaks which were yellow-stickered and I have to now do something with them smile

Just had cheese and ham sandwich on lovely malted brown bread, a pink lady apple and a chunky KitKat. I'm in my own tonight so a crustless mini quiche with sprouts, a small yoghurt and tangerines this evening. Not on a diet!!

Egg mayo & cress granary sandwich with a satsumas for lunch and I’m making Shepards pie for dinner one to eat one for the freezer.

Left over risotto for lunch. May well have it for dinner too, if DD hasn't eaten it first.

tanith do you mean mustard & cress, those little spindly thingies that we used to grow on blotting paper in school?

Every now and then I crave that with egg mayo, but can never find it - maybe it's there when I don't want it and I overlook it!

Where do you buy it?

Homemade carrot and coriander soup with homemade sourdough and too much homemade butter!

Dinner tonight is nothing homemade it’s fish and chips from one of Hull’s finest🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌.

We’re on a major mission to declutter in a 3 storey house it’s a lot of up and down!
We thought we deserved it.
