Stuffed marrow rings (steak mince with onion, mushroom and mustard) on buttered pots with onion gravy.  Only just cooked through after over 80mins ..  I'm not sure what is going on with the oven!

Low gas pressure - it happens here every Christmas, so bad that I bought a 2 ring electric hob so the veg water could come up to heat without lowering the oven heat  :(

This morning I defrosted mince, chopped swede, onion and potato ready to make pasties, but ran out of time  :dry: so slow cooked the filling in a pan and served over mash & Brussels. It wasn't pasty but it was still tasty  :lol:

Madcat, your marrow meals always sound delicious,reminds me of my grandma,she used to cook marrow,never had it since but Ill let a few courgettes get large this year & try it myself.
Mumofstig pasties would have been good but I love mince & mash.
Last night I had the first of my sprouts,lovely with a 1 pot beef & potato bake.
Tonight Id baked plaice.

Oven is electric - there's no gas in the village.   :(  I am starting to think that the the thermostat is going.  The great kitchen makeover is getting painfully close.   >:( :( :wacko:

Snowdrops - my dad loved marrow, so it is one of those things I grew up with.  But we were rather successful with them this year.   ::)

Tonight we are out for the earlier part of the evening - so the other half of the beouf bourg. from Monday, with runners and potato cakes from the freezer, or perhaps couscous..... :unsure:

Last couple of nights has been veggie rice as I've been working late.  Today was a re-run of Sunday, with leftover roast heated up in a bit of gravy in the oven, roast spuds and veg.

I had a cheese omelette and some salad bits - I'm feeling bunged up with cold again and not very hungry.

Twas our monthly treat chippy tea on Friday as we were late home.   :blush:

Last night was a quick re-think because we were later than planned, and some (bargain) breaded chicken breasts came out the freezer, with a tray of leeks in cheese sauce to go with some potato wedges.  Phew.

Tonight will be more of the Christmas beef in gravy from the freezer,with roast potatoes & some of the parsnips roasted that Ive just dug up, Im intending on making a large tray of Yorkshires so theres some for the freezer to go with yet more of the frozen Christmas beef & some cooked roast lamb thats also in the freezer. Veg will be some of the Brussels Ive just harvested with some carrots I pulled on Friday once Ive salvaged them from the ravages of the carrot fly.
Off now to use up the purple sprouting broccoli that has decided to be ready & the leftover blue cheese from Christmas into a soup. Hopefully Ill like it but I dont like blue cheese!! So I think Ill just put less in.
