My son bought me a meat pack from his local butchers, all cut and packed for the freezer, they're always a good deal:)
This time it had a pack of rump steaks in it, so I'm defrosting one to have with butternut wedges and coleslaw for tea.

I put a beef and ale stew in the slowcooker yesterday, the plan is to turn some of it into a pie for tonight with mash and mixed veg. Just need to summon the energy to make the pastry....

Marks and Sparks do a great pizza selection disk, and half of one LP is in the oven right now, after a quick visit to the out-of-town food hall in T. Wells... Mrs Growster is just having a sandwich, but she's not sure if she'll like the bread from the same comestible supplier!

'Greedster' me..?

One-pot meal in the slow cooker since just before lunchtime, 3 chicken wings rescued from the bottom of the freezer first thing this morning and mostly defrosted when they went in. I added garlic, onions, carrots, peas and lentils with cumin, coriander, chicken oxo and S&P and a little water.
I've just tasted it and added a teaspoon of redcurrant jelly, it's thick, mildly spiced and very tasty - just right for a cold day.

Ate like a hobbit tonight.
First tea was a large hotdog when the sprog turned up and fed the ravenous grandsprog
Second tea was a tomato & lentil soup with a curry twist which was at the use it or lose it stage in the fridge
Main tea (some hours later) A pasta dish - bacon bits, peppers, mushrooms, cheese sauce.
Probably a gazillion calories.. but I had been outside working in the freezing wind all afternoon so maybe not that sinful.

Last night's pie was cancelled  :( whilst Id made the pastry, pie making time was used driving back to ML's after some bright spark pulled the burglar alarm control box off the wall which triggered all the tamper alarms looking for the fuse board  :mad:  Settled for pasta and tuna in the end as it was the quickest.

I'll be trying again for pie and mash tonight.

I need a plan B  :mad:  :mad:  I suspect it's going to be some sort of cheese and onion sausage roll type thing with chips and beans if I can find a tin.   >:(

Today I have made 3 pounds of finest diced steak into a beef and beer casserole with all the necessary veg, ie:  Leeks,Mild while onion, garlic, carrots and mushrooms.   It smell lovely, so shall have some of that, with spuds and peas.  then freeze portions later.  Also cooked 1 and half pounds of diced pork,  made sweet and sour sauce, and added lots of pineapple and yellow pepper.   Got to portion up that later when its cooled.
Good day by my standards  :D  Mrs Bouquet

Oh  :(  Hope you get it sorted soon.

Yesterday was lamb and chickpea kebabs with oven roasted veg and spicy yogurt.  This was inspired by a half bag of lamb mince I found in the freezer.

Tonight was chicken stew.
