Last night was breaded chicken steaks with beetroot (from the freezer) gratin and oven wedges.  Easy, but not as quick as hoped. 

Tonight it will be hm lamb burgers, with mash and green beans  Mmmm .. redcurrant jelly and onion spoon standing on the side will be required too.  ::)

Last night was turkey, leek (only bit that was home grown) and sweetcorn pasta bake.

Tonight it will be gammon, runners (from the freezer,  better get them eaten as this yrs are starting to flower) and I'll use the leftover pasta bake (amazingly without any turkey left in it!  ::) ) as the carbs for OH.  A bit of salad on the side for me.

From the freezer, leftover cooked pork 'bits' will be turned into a curry, plain rice, chutney and the usual salad bits to go with it.

I was late back yesterday so we ended up with fish and chips.

Tonight will be the chilli I had made in advance for yesterday.  I did try and tell OH reheating chilli and cooking some rice would be just as quick as a trip out to the chippie, but he seemed to have a need for chips  :lol:

Mmmmm... Empathise with that!

Thai style chicken meatballs tonight (I opened the freezer, stuck a hand in, grabbed a package and then worked out what to do with the resulting bag of mince.  ::)  One way to make a decision!!), in a tomato, squash and chickpea sauce.  Rice on the side for OH, who is finding losing weight much easier than it is for me!  :(

 :lol: Doing much the same!

Yesterday was cod parcels (cooked in foil with lemon and parsley butter) with a big green salad (all our own leaves at last!  yeh!) and couscous for OH.

For tonight I am filling the slow cooker with a beef bourguignon.  To be served with runners (last years still!  :ohmy:) and bread for OH to mop up the gravy.

Tonight was a bit of a cop out - breaded chicken fillets (bargain from the freezer) with beetroot (last of last years from the 'clamp') gratin and runners (freezer again).  Pittas for OH, again from the freezer.  ::) What would I do without that great huge white chest??  :lol:
