Cottage pie with broad beans. A very frugal meal as the minced beef was an end of day bargain of 15p! 500 grams, enough for 2 pies. Apart from an Oxo cube, a little milk and butter all the other ingredients were home grown :)

Oh  :(  Hope you get it sorted soon.
Dec 21st next appointment available, it was August I went to have it fixed originally  :mad:

Oh dear, Iíve got a tub of turkey gravy needing a home?

You're a genius ! I didn't have anything resembling proper gravybut I did have a pot of bisto best granules, had a the rest of the mash with it poured over. Much better  :tongue2:

Bought some readybrek for tea cos I'm a big kid at heart.  :nowink:

Cauliflower cheese couldn't decide whether better on pasta or potato but the jacket won out :)

Lamb shanks (boil in the bag ones with gravy).  Got called into job no.2, so grabbed them for tea on the way out.

Tonight was beef and mushroom casserole with peas and carrots.

Roast pork on Sunday, then had to work Mon/Tues evenings.  Also got Thurs and Fri this week as well - sigh  ::)

Anyway, tonight is the leftover pork and as I shall be decent dinner deprived for the rest of the week, I feel a re-run of Sunday coming on  ;)  Roasties, veg and some pork reheated in gravy will be just the job for a grey, wet day  :)

It's not cold, but it is miserable - so I've decided on a casserole with cheese dumplings/scones on top. I think there's still some cubed beef in the freezer, if not there's deffo some chicken  :D

Nice bit of stuffing and some apple sauce with that I trust.... I really wasn't in the mood to cook but that sounds so good, I'm almost tempted to get a pork chop out the freezer.  :nowink:

CBA today and I was planning on dumping some waitrose bombay spuds (meh) over some rice or even chips  :ohmy:  :wub:  I know - I'm so ashamed of myself.   :(

No sorry  :lol:  No time for lots of extras, but it was good.

Bombay potatoes over rice isn't that bad.  I'm not sure of the chips option (spuds on spuds  :wacko:), but its a meal and better than some you could have.  A bag of frozen spinach in the freezer is often a life saver here to perk up either leftover or ready meal curry.  If I am stuck at work late, a quick dive into the frozen meals before the tills close has been known  ;)  Spinach stirred in counts as green and leafy.

Sometimes that CBA fairy lands with such a thud that anything you manage is OK and that's just how it is.

We often make 2 meals at once - lasagne, cottage pie, curry and then freeze one. Home made ready meals. Hearty soups are dead easy with a hand blitzer. Adding lentils for body and protein. Then freeze. Before we moved there was a lovely Chinese take away that delivered and our Friday treat was often a Mrs Wong's delivered to the door in handy freezer containers that we still use today, 8 years later.

An omelette is a really quick dish to prepare and cook. So many things work as a filling too although a plain omelette is acceptable, Just some bread and butter to accompany if you're feeling very CBA

And now I present the piece de resistance, La Pastie de Cornwall a la Msr. Ginster avec less haricot dans une sauce tomate a la Msr. Heinz Eee. There's posh! :)

Tonight I cooked a chicken breast in breadcrumbs, with wedges and a bowl of chopped onion, cucumber, celery and tomato with a honey/mustard dressing :) I hate having to buy salad stuff again, but sometimes I just fancy salad and the only crops growing now are a few small lettuces in the greenhouse.
The things I bought today were grown in the big glasshouses in Thanet - so at least they weren't imported  :lol:
