Tonight was salmon fillets and veggie rice, which featured a lot of squash.  I found my last Tromba squash has started to go soft in the shed  ::)

There is another bag of cubed squash in the fridge and the rest has been roasted and frozen for future use in soups  :)

Started? Mine were mush before Christmas  - nothing edible! must have been colder here :(

I've cooked Linda Mac veggie sausages, last before they go out of date and filled the plate with mixed veg from the freezer. Spoon standing and mint sauce of course.

What a shame  :(

I don't  think my Tromba squashes had ripened properly.  I had 2 with no seeds in as I said on a thread elsewhere.  The 3rd had a few seeds, but this was the biggest of the lot and had quite a lot of seeds.  The chickens were delighted as they love the pulpy bits and seeds out of any squash  :lol:

The skins just weren't that firm though.  The spaghetti squash and Buffy Ball are holding well, but they had developed tough skins, despite the poor season.

Rabbit, mushroom and onion (the last of my home grown ones) casserole, made in the slow cooker.

Long time since I have had or seen rabbit.
Where do you get that from?

My cat enjoys the rabbit felix pouches.

Remember as a kid in the 60s and 70s having it in pies and casseroles quite a lot.
Also, remember them hanging outside the butchers windows in the 60s.
Think it went out of favour after then.
Not sure a butcher would be allowed to display them like that now.

Tonight is a shepherds pie made from some leftover Sunday roast lamb and the fatty gravy.
Using my frozen mash from some Maris frozen last September and a good picking of carrots from the patio.
Just picked a good helping of fresh Kale to go with.

Tradition here to have a good chunk of bread on the side too, so making a quick cottage loaf to break up in chunks.

Sounds good lettice.
Sadly rabbits are nowhere near as numerous as they used to be around my corner of Wales. The one I'm eating was shot on a golf course by a friend who has a pest control business. I'll be providing some rainbow trout in the spring in exchange. :)

I've been working evenings, so tonight is curry fest night  :D

There is cold roast lamb from the weekend and homemade tomato sauce defrosting.  That with some plot greens will be one curry.  There's also dhal with squash defrosting and I'll do some pilau rice.

Lasagna with leeks between the layers, instead of sheets of pasta.

Chicken, carrot, mushroom, celery, HM chicken stock, white wine in a slow casserole.
Just doing some mini roasties to go with and picked a few Brussels sprouts  a moment ago in the snow.

No fish Friday here today.
Gammon rounds, black pudding, fried eggs, large mushrooms, HM chips, baked beans and fried bread in some leftover turkey fat.
Basically a fry up.
Just making some baguettes now, some will be used for the fried bread.

Shops were selling off mince pies again, 25p for six packs. So will chop them up and mix with loads of custard.

Working tonight, so OH has a HM macaroni cheese to heat up when he gets in and I'll see how I feel later.

Tomorrow is pie day  :D  :D  :D  At last, a chance to get the pie maker out of the box.  Job no. 2 has foiled my plans so far by calling me in every 5 minutes  ::)  Currently debating chicken pies with white sauce and veg, or beef mince and something  :unsure:
