Two marrows found going wrong - so a marrow fest will be called for!  Today it is marrow korma and rice to warm the cockles on a beautiful and decidedly 'brisk' day!  might find some beetroot curry in the freezer for contrast ...

As we've both had stomach upsets this week and today is the first day we both feel we can tackle something 'substantial' we have plumped for shepherds pie.

More of the marrow fest tonight - stuffed with turkey mince mixed with herbs and garlic, on a bed of buttered potatoes and topped with crunchy cheese.

Potato and squash curry with pilaf rice yesterday.  All veg from the shed  :D

I am working later, but have got chicken thighs out of the freezer to defrost.  I'm planning a mini roast for lunch  :)

Today is already in "not-quite-as-planned- >:(-" mode, so I have dived into the freezer for prepared leeks and a pack of cold meat.  Hopefully I will be able to make a cheese sauce to go with the leeks and steam some potatoes and cabbage ....   :unsure: :unsure:   Cant even default to the chippy, it doesnt open on Sunday.

Roast chicken for us with roast potatoes and parsnips, swede, carrots and last years green beans.  Slowly  making a hole in the big freezer ready for all the treats we looked at in Tesco this afternoon when we went to pick up a few essentials (washing  powder, coffee etc).

That doesn't sound good at all - hope that another day and you will all wobble back onto your feet.  Wise to give up on the hairdresser.  You don't want to pass it on.

Last night more or less worked out except the leeks ... so  tonight is a pie out of the freezer, with the leeks we didnt eat and some beans.  And spoon standing of course.
