It was supposed to be a pork chop, mustard mash and cauli/broccoli cheese but I came down for a serious case of the CBA's around dinner time. I'll nuke a spud next to I venture into the kitchen  ::) .

I've got trays of tomatoes ripening, peppers needing something doing with them, onions - some sprouting already grr! and some fingerling PFAs too small to do much with, really. It was throw away or use them time for some of them  :wacko:
So I took whatever need rescuing the most from each tray, plus some garlic, red lentils and chicken stock from the freezer plus herbs from the garden....and there's a big pan of thick soup bubbling away now.
I'm cooking some garlic bread slices to go with it. That'll do nicely  :D

Another freezer raid here to save us bothering too much, both still under the weather.
Chicken & veg soup for lunch & for dinner the last 2 potions of cottage pie with lovely Christmas beef gravy, Fresh-ish carrots & green beans & baked beans for him.

I spent a lot of yesterday on the "tomato sauce for the freezer" production line - they are ripening too fast even tucked away in the cool and dim!

Dinner was therefore hm lamb and mint burgers with tomato sauce (it was supposed to be meatballs but I ran out of time and energy) with tomato sauce, soy braised greens and bread on the side for OH.  Tasted good, but the presentation wasnt great.

Busy yesterday so had got what I thought was pasta sauce out of the freezer - it was curry  :lol:  Oh well, quick swap from pasta to rice and all was well.

Today is roast chicken dinner.  It is pretty dreary out there so a plot dash for veg may be replaced with a dash to the Co-op down the road.  I have spuds and squash in the shed, so just need something green  :)

Another freezer raid unearthed a forgotten steak & kidney pie mix(cooked) have also got a puff pastry top in the other freezer. Will be frozen veg as I’m not battling the rain to pull carrots! Plus I don't think there are many green beans left. The whitefly infestation puts me of the kale tbh.

Pork belly cooked with apples, prunes and cider (some green toms and butter beans sneaked in as well!) all in the slow cooker for tonight.  Busy day today!  Have to sort something on the side for OH - rice probably.

Next day :  erm.. that went a bit wrong.  So the pork cass is tonight, and last night was some bargain sausages roasted with pots (for OH), squash, onions and toms, with a bit of cabbage on the side.  Instant onion gravy.

I made pastry to make some pasties, but in the end made one big pie with the filling, rather than the pasties.
Green beans to go with it  :)

Yesterday was chicken tray bake with toms ripened on the windowsill, Trinidad Perfume peppers, onion, squash and broccoli, served over rice with spicy yogurt sauce.

Tonight I have sausages defrosting and am contemplating making toad in the hole.  This will win me massive brownie points with OH who is outside working in grey drizzly rain today.  I think he needs rib sticking stuff and spoon standing to recover from that  ;)
