Moussaka (Hairy bikers recipe) and strawberries with yoghurt. Just finished eating, delicious. Bonus is 4 portions for the freezer!

I made Mary Berry's bolognaise bake. It was delicious.

Fillet steak. Parmentier potatoes. Mushrooms. Peas. Grilled tomatoes. Pepper sauce. Last pieces of a beautiful Italian cake I bought for Easter with strawberries. Vino Verde for me. Peroni for himself.

Had a really nice take-away roast dinner from the local pub yesterday. Just read a mumsnet post questioning why anyone would want to do such a thing.grin grin grin

Just had quiche for tea tonight.

GrannyRose we have had several takeaway roasts in lockdown and we love them. They are from a local restaurant we kept meaning to try previously. If this quality is anything to go by we will be there ASAP 😋 .
Incidentally I have been trying to get a Sunday lunch to my dad but without success in his area. Recently lost my mum after he’d cared for her at home for 5 years and thought he could do with someone treating him. All I could find was fast food type menus where he lives.

Today I’m using up the leftover lamb in a stir fry. Fruit after.

We went out for lunch with friends so just had avocado on toast. Which, I have to admit, was seriously boring. Followed it with a couple of small left over Easter eggs. Not my best effort.

Roasted veg with salmon.
Followed by Apple crumble.

Whitewavemark2 Thu 08-Apr-21 17:21:33

Blossoming Thu 08-Apr-21 18:04:52

Burgers from the farm shop, on sourdough buns, topped with chillis and cheese. Haven’t had a burger for ages, don’t like the ‘fast food’ versions.

Kim19 Thu 08-Apr-21 22:27:25

I had corned beef hash. Haven't had it for years. Pretty good.

Whitewavemark2 Fri 09-Apr-21 06:32:01

Tonight -Fish Stew - using up some monk fish

LadyGracie Fri 09-Apr-21 09:54:05

Pesto lentils. Greek yoghurt.

EllanVannin Fri 09-Apr-21 10:02:35

I'm going to sample one of M&S's concoctions today, a cod fish cake mixed with potato and mushy peas, so I'll be doing chips with it. 2 in a pack but they're quite thick and heavy so one at a time. I got them last week to freeze, among other stuff.

Witzend Fri 09-Apr-21 12:27:02

Ooh, those sound very nice, EllanVannin - I have to go to M&S soon to collect an order, might collect some of those, too.

Since it went down very well the other day, we’re going to have bacon (just one lean rasher each) egg, mushrooms (since I need to use some up) fried tomatoes (ditto) plus bubble and squeak cakes, which I’m making now.

Jaxjacky Fri 09-Apr-21 13:03:02

As DH dislikes any fish not in batter, different meals tonight. I’m having smoked haddock, veg and a jacket, he’s having pseudo kfc and chips.

Auntieflo Fri 09-Apr-21 17:03:37

Well, we were going to have lamb chops, spring greens/ pointy cabbage or savoy, with carrots and mashed potatoes, and minty gravy.

But since DH went shopping, (to save me going), we are now having the chops with potato salad, lettuce, tomatoes etc.

Since when did an iceberg lettuce, substitute for cabbage?

Kate1949 Fri 09-Apr-21 19:36:29

I made cheese and potato pie and we had it with red cabbage.

grannylyn65 Fri 09-Apr-21 19:37:51

Sweet corn soup

Witzend Sat 10-Apr-21 08:42:09

😂 Auntieflo, my dh once came back with a joint of pork after I’d clearly written ‘gammon’ on the list.
‘I thought it was gammon,’ he said, all injured.

He really enjoys going food shopping but nowadays I do remind him to read the xxxxxxx label!!

Tonight I think it’s going to be cauliflower cheese with jacket potatoes.

nanna8 Sat 10-Apr-21 08:51:04

Boring tonight. Chicken ,chips and peas with leftover rhubarb crumble after.
