I went with the chicken pie idea, so the filling is made and is cooling, the pie maker has had its non-stick surface seasoned and the pastry is on hand.

Mash, peas and spoon standing are also going to feature on the menu  :D

I've made a chunky tomato, pepper, onion and garlic sauce to go on a pork chop tonight, with French beans and carrots.
I'll cook some chicken in the rest of the sauce tomorrow.

Very good  :)  What a great little gadget and it folds away and tucks into a tiny space in the cupboard.   As I was being idle, I had a block of bought shortcrust and half does 2 pies.  I also made too much filling, so we will be having a rerun of chicken pie on Monday night  :D

Tonight is gammon shanks, plot spuds, braised red cabbage from the freezer, roasted squash (once I have raided the shed) and possibly something green as well.  Its a dreak, dreary day and we need comfort food  :)

Pie maker sounds a success.

Roast Chicken here.
Picked Brussels Sprouts, parsnips, carrots, leeks and a cabbage.
Also picked a load of small sage leaves to make a sage stuffing.
Bought swede.

Some of last years frozen rhubarb crumble and custard.

I've got chicken cooked in a tomato sauce and was going to plot to pick greens, but as it's raining  ::) I'll have it with freezer veg and roast squash instead.

The marrows are going soft so it is marrow korma tonight, with beetroot curry and rice.

(I made marrow, ginger and chilli soup for lunch and I'll do some more marrow soups for the freezer to use them up before they are only fit for the compost.  Good job for a soggy day!)

Was leftover Sunday roast chicken in a curry last night.

Just boiling up the chicken bones and some veg for frozen stock.
Will use some of the stock with the rest of the leftover Sunday Roast Chicken in a Chicken Supreme of peas, sweetcorn, mushrooms and cream, served with some Bucatini.

Tomato, mushroom and ham omelette for me and SWMBO and ashamedly spaghetti on toast with meatballs for my 3 girls.
We did have HM lasagne last night with roasted new potato's, green beans and sprouts "just for information, sprouts do not go well with lasagne.

We tend to do an easy tea for the girls once a week and on a Friday or Saturday they get takeaway.
Moving forward though we will be doing what we used to do which is make home made pizza on a Friday instead of takeaways.
