The plan was for a gammon roast, but having defrosted it, I canít be arised, so that is in the fridge for tomorrow.

Now on chicken and potato curry with rice, lassi, chutney or fresh relish and Iíve just found some poppadoms in the cupboard, so it would be rude to leave them out  :lol:

Peanut butter chicken curry, it was okay, lots of faffing about, I wanted Chinese but while Paul was hunting on line for chow mien  he found this recipe and we had all the ingredients and went for it.  Not sure whether we will do it again.

I finished off the sawhedges, mash and cabbage all covered in onion spoonstanding.  Apple crumble for afters, which really needed some custard.

I have mash and cabbage left over and some chicken hopefully defrosting in time - if not there's a tin of corned beef as backup.

Post by: New shoot on January 06, 2022, 13:56
Leftover gammon, potatoes of some description as I havenít decided what yet and mixed root veg mash. 

Is mashed potato and mashed veg too much?  I am weighing up the best combo for spoon standing  :lol:

Post by: snowdrops on January 06, 2022, 15:17
Well I couldnít decide what to take out of the freezer & grandson was here today for lunch so I took out
Balti chicken curry, creamy garlic chicken, Swedish meatballs-all 1 portion tubs & a larger one of bolognese, thinking weíd have that with pasta for lunch, but he was having that for tea  :wacko:
So any of the above- had egg & prawn fried rice or lunch.

I'd put a jacket potato in the oven but neither of us were hungry so just the potato with cheese and beans.  I was going to make a veg chilli but will now save that for Saturday as I've got bits out the freezer.

Sausages and bubble and squeak , more comfort food  :)

Post by: Lardman on January 07, 2022, 08:37
I still have some leftover mashed spuds and cabbage and now also stuffing from yesterday.  Seems a no brainer to just put the rest of the chicken with it and cover in spoonstanding.  The apples are beginning to smell overly applely so I may have to do another crumble, there's no freezer space to process and store them  :nowink: Not usually fond of the Jonagold but they've provided plenty of acceptable crumbles this year.
Title: Re: What's for tea 2022?

3 broken eggs in my delivery today, so guess I'll be having an omelette for tea  ::)

The slow cooker is on at home with a beef mince spag sauce in it.  I padded it out with whole green lentils to fill the pot.  They are almost indistinguishable from the mince once cooked in the sauce for hours and it means I have extras for the freezer  :)

I got waylaid by the reduced to clear freezer at work, so ended up with some strange chicken creation (southern fried coated and with American gravy inside like an alternative flavoured Kiev - it was actually quite nice) and waffle fries.  I did make some hm coleslaw and a tomato salad to go with it  :lol:

Snap.  Roast chicken here as well with the usual veg, roasties, carrots, leeks (Paul insists), swede and cauli. (It was reduced and will do us a couple of meals as it was quite a large one.)

Sort of cottage pie, but the base was a bit of a mishmash. 

I defrosted a tub of spaghetti sauce which was about 50/50 mince and lentils.   While looking for that I found more spaghetti sauce, but this time a veggie one and only a small tub.  Then I found some hm baked beans - again a small tub.  I mixed all 3 and added cooked squash, then covered it in cheesy mash and chucked it in the oven.

It was lovely  :D

It's that odd time between shops and I've nothing in to make a sauce with that isn't tomato based, otherwise nice idea - I could have done that with shrooms and black pepper.

More meat and 2 veg tonight to finish the fillet. It's very tasteless, I much prefer shoulder for this sort of thing.

That is what I use when I want them not to mush.  Just the plain whole green lentils, not the posh puy ones.

Tonight was stir-fry and rice.  I picked all the remaining duck meat from Saturday into shreds and used chinese leaves and spring onions from the greenhouse, plus garlic, chilli, ginger, soy sauce and oyster sauce.

Dried green lentils bought - wondering if I should have gone with the tins though  :unsure:

Made use of Jeff's same day delivery service (a little expensive but ok for the few bits I had run out of). So I'm eyeing up either the chicken curry or sweet chilli chicken ready meals I also bought. Thankfully they had some frozen veggies which now gives me plenty of options again for rest of the week.

Mrs Subversive made roast chicken stuffed with onion wedges, lemon, celery leaves (all for seasoning).  Roasted potatoes, cauliflower casserole.

I got the light duty: I made straight-up rhubarb pie, served with vanilla ice cream. The Mrs. and our 2 sons were over-the-moon for that.

I have a confession though. None of the above came from the garden. But, I wanted to serve the rhubarb pie as a "gateway drug" to growing rhubarb here.  Growing it in the heat here is difficult, but not impossible. I've been doing my research . . .

It was honey mustard, but the remains are now a fairly hot curry  :lol:

Leftover lamb warmed up in gravy, plus spuds and cabbage.  I got a stew pack from work free yesterday (swede, parsnip, onion, carrots), so put the onion aside, peeled, chunked up and cooked the rest and made a mixed veg mash as well  :)

There is just about enough lamb left for a curry if I pad it out with dhal and the bone is in the slowcooker tonight for stock, with the onion and the veg peelings for company :)

TV dinner on our laps tonight, lasagne.  Since 10 am today our shop has been cut off by the workmen putting in the new Wight Fibre cable connection.  It's going to be worse tomorrow as they are going across our private forecourt where we park the van. I'm not going any more this week as there is no point both of us sitting there twiddling our thumbs.

Why didn't they get all of that sort of stuff done during "lockdown" when it wouldn't have cause such a disruption?

I've made a mess myself today - I woke up convinced it was Friday and I would be having breaded cod, a handful of chips, mushy peas and as a special treat some of the onion rings I'd bought. I then realised it is in fact Thursday.   ::)  :nowink:  Pasta and pesto it is then  :(

Time isn't an issue anymore :( which I suspect is part of the problem. Too much grazing on peanut butter, nutella and apple crumble, eating enough carbs to sink a battle ship each meal probably doesn't help either  ::)  :nowink:
Title: Re: What's for tea 2022?
Post by: mumofstig on February 06, 2022, 13:58
I recognise that routine, I had to start low-carbing to loose the extra weight. Now I graze on sliced ham, cheese, tinned tuna and eggs.
If it really has to be sweet, to kill the craving, then I stir stevia/sweetener into full fat cottage cheese or Greek yogurt. Sometimes I add a couple of berries, walnuts or raisins just so it looks pretty  :lol:
It seems strange, but it does work, as protein keeps you feeling fuller for longer, via different satiety hormones produced in response to protein.
I admit it's not the cheapest of options, though......

I'm considering sausage and bean casserole today as I can just chuck it all in the slow cooker but I can't say for sure it wont end up as sausage mash and mixed veg covered in onion gravy.  I think I need to eat more from the green food group.

Pasta bake for us tonight.

Can someone remind me what I was going to make with the leeks  :unsure: .

This?

Plot leeks wrapped in bacon and fried off a bit to add some colour. Then planning to put in a dish, cover with cheese sauce, plus extra cheese on top and put in the oven for a bit.

Leeks, bacon and melty cheese - I cannot go wrong with that one   :D

I reckon some thick crusty bread is all the extras it will need  ;)

I pulled up our last few plot leeks yesterday and am planning a re-run. It was good!  :D

More lamb in some shape or form. Maybe cottage pie or lamb stew.
Yesterdayís was not cooked well enough for us, it turned out the 1/2 shoulder was very big & could have done with going in sooner, so dinner was a tad later than normal, Iíd also defrosted the breast of lamb from the half of lamb we bought, I roasted that at the same time, but ended up putting it all in the slow cooker after dinner for 3 hours (had intended that for the breast anyway) so itís all very tender now & has yielded a few lbs of meat. The bones & scrap is back in the slow cooker & I intend to can some of the stock this time as a first & to save freezer space.

It was supposed to be salmon, but hubby has been up all night with a sickness & diarrhoea bug, so Iíll probably scrap the salmon idea, although I was fancying spicy noodles to go with mine! Might use up some time f the leftovers from the fridge, thereís fish pie, lamb hotpot or chicken & chorizo bake soup  :lol: or I could have the lot & call it tapas? :lol:

Already tried that one MoS :( even the "extra spicy" version, I have grumpy or a least very bored taste buds lately. I'll keep trying as I'd like to add another none processed quick meat other than chicken. 

There's a bit of chicken left which I thought I'd spice up tonight with some veggie rice.

Have you considered brining?  It takes time but not effort - salt, sugar if you want but not vital if you don't, any flavourings you want and then turn the tap on. 

Last night for us was pork loin steaks, jacket spuds, braised red cabbage from the freezer, roasted carrots and steamed broccoli.

Tonight is curry leftovers from Saturday that have been nicely maturing in the fridge.  I might buy some chicken meat to cook and put in the dhal if I get time.  It is going to be curry and naan tonight, so a simpler meal that may need a bit of something to add some zap  :)

Not yet, that sort of thing needs a little more organisation  :nowink: I've stuck with dry rubs as they can be done at cooking time but I think I'll give marinades a go to see if I can get some flavour in there. Google showed up some interesting ones for pork chops, most of which I have the stuff for in the cupboard I just need to find some that don't resemble shoe leather.

My shortcrust pastry used to be fine, if not pleasant but it's gone wayward lately. We won't talk about my ruff puff or puff attempts though.  Yesterday's wasn't bad but I should have used butter and lard as all butter was a bit rich for a meat pie.

There's half the pie and mash left for tonight, although I've order the wrong mixed veg again  :mad:  and there's nothing but silly small diced bits to go with it. I'll have to start ordering the individual veg I think, I'm doing that a little too often and it messes up the meal plan.

For someone who doesn't like fish, I sure have bought a lot  :wacko:  Found some mincemeat from long ago lurking in the back of the fridge so made a mince tart with the leftover pastry from the other night's pie and put some custard with it.  :tongue2:  I may have over eaten  :blush:

There's fish on the menu again tonight too, some chunky M&S fish fingers, a few oven chips to use those up some shrooms to use those up too and a some mushy peas - because you have to have something green  ;) Finishing off the rest of the tart and custard too.

I do feel mincemeat is underrated and shouldn't be saved just for the winter festival.

Well if you insist  :lol:
Harvested at 4.30pm & on my plate at 6pm, not a huge heart but plenty for just me (himself doesnít eat it, fine , more for me) lightly washed & leaves torn not cut with a knife. Plunged into boiling water for 3/4 minutes, drained & a fresh grinding of black pepper & nutmeg & a sachet of butter buds sprinkled through it. Lovely fresh taste, with a slight bite to it.

Pasta and pesto - didn't want it . didn't enjoy, didn't taste better with cheese  :ohmy:

It did however use up the last of the fusilli, the last dregs of white wine vinegar, the last bit of pesto and what was left of the parmesan. So the unsatisfying dinner was at least balanced by the satisfaction of having a good clear out.  :nowink: Simple things  ::)

Jacket potatoes, roasted carrots, pork loin steaks and a load of spring greens from the plot with butter and pepper stirred in at the end.

Not sure what was wrong with the mash though, for want of a better term is was "greasy". Checking the bag of generic white potatoes I bought, they appear to spectre which are a new variety to me, hope they're not all like that.

Kookoo, which is an Iranian version of a frittata.  The difference is that you add bicarbonate of soda to the eggs so it puffs up into a more fluffy pie type thing.

This one is new potatoes, spring onions and parsley and is already made, so it will be room temperature by the time we eat.  Couscous salad to go with it  :)

M&S veggie casserole and herb dumplings. They were on special before anyone panics that I've lost my senses and taken to buying ready meals.  :nowink:

I had planned on putting something extra with it, but CBA. To be honest it wasn't bad - bit like a good quality thick chunky veggie soup and the dumplings provided a bit of extra bulk, I was pleasantly surprised, not worth full retail but I'd consider buying it again  :ohmy:

Something with a chicken steak  :wacko: No spuds large enough to nuke though so it will probably have to be some sort of spicy rice.  Broccoli is the only veg I can think of to make up the green part.

Beef mince defrosting - I should make a couple of cottage pies and the spud have already started to sprout but it's likely to end up as chilli.

Cubed up spuds are quite nice in a chilli.  They can take the place of beans or be an addition.

Just parboil for a few minutes until half cooked, then chuck them in to soak up some sauce.

Itís not authentic but it is tasty. If you like the way potatoes go when cooked in curry, youíll like this  :)

Cubed up spuds are quite nice in a chilli.  They can take the place of beans or be an addition.

It wasn't overly hot so I made a large cottage pie. There should be enough for a few days, especially as I just don't feel like eating tonight. It had nothing do with the fact the slow cooker still has pork fat in and would have needed to be scrubbed.  :wub:

After your suggestion I checked the cupboard and I have a packet mix (I know - but it's worth a try) for Bombay Pots that I'd been meaning to use, so that'll see off a few more of the spuds tomorrow.

Fell asleep mid afternoon and ended up with an emergency microwave curry, couldn't face cooking. Plenty of real chicken in those ones from M&S but they're very bland. Trying again with the chicken tonight.

Chicken here later as well.  Chicken breast on the bone with assorted roasted plot and greenhouse veg - courgettes, peppers and tomatoes will definitely feature and maybe some french beans.

I might try the Co-op down the road for some crusty bread, as it is the sort of meal where you need bread to mop up the juices on your plate.  If they fail me, it will be couscous as a bed for it all  :tongue2:

More of the lamb some way or other, I did cook the remains on the bone for 2 hours on low in the slow cooker after dinner last night as it wasnít the most tender piece. Might be a hot pot tonight as it was a tad chilly first thing but it has warmed up so dunno really   :lol:

I've put the slow cooker on with more stuff for Bombay spuds as I still have really bad curry munchies  :wacko:

edit : Pleasantly surprised.   :ohmy: I don't think I've ever said anything nice about a packet mix before, but that "Schwartz Bombay Potatoes" mix isn't actually too bad (needs a bit more heat but then everything does).  Worth keeping in the store cupboard to quieten down the curry monster when doing things properly is just too much effort.

Thought I would share this as it is a tasty, healthy and money saving idea  :D

I had a punnet of normal white mushrooms that needed using up, so chopped them up fine and mixed them into the mince for the burgers, together with an egg and the usual seasoning.

The mushrooms bulked out the mince so it went much further,  they stopped the burgers going dry while they cooked right through and they still tasted like good meaty burgers.  There was a bit of water that came out when they were cooking, but it soon dried out and they browned as usual.  OH was fooled, wolfed them and said how great they were.  All in all a win  :)

I've been saving an M&S steak pie for when it was more sensible to put the oven on ... Mash and cabbage to accompany  :tongue2: It's family sized so hopefully I can get a couple of days meals out of  :unsure:

Leftover pie and mash. Family size is a bit optimistic and it's somewhat light on meat but it's not bad for a supermarket own brand effort.

I'd bought some bone in and skin on chicken thighs for somethings specific, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was. Boned a couple and put them in the oven with garlic and ginger and some mushies, served with veggie rice.  Put the rest of them in the slow cooker with casserole veg as they were on the used by - felt like such a waste.

That's exactly what I said to the dog whilst microwaving it. The mince had already been frozen twice, once raw and once cooked. The rule of thumb I was told (so as not to end up poisoning myself) was not to freeze something twice without changing its state, Im not sure how true this is, but given I've been a bit sub par lately I thought best not to risk it.

The spag bol was supposed to have been made over the weekend, portioned and frozen along with a batch of chilli and some jerk chicken I found a recipe for that looked tasty so there would be plenty for the CBA fairyday food- but things are not going as planned  ::)

Last night was caramelised onion quiche from Pinch of Nom website, with chips & salad tonight
Tonight it was supposed to be slow cooked shin beef but as I didnít take it out of the freezer & itís a little over 1kg that wonít defrost & cook so I think we better go with sausages & Yorkshire puds, mash, green beansÖno surprise there Iím inundated with them lol & a nice onion gravy.
Scrap the sausages & mash we were late back home so went out
Himself had steak & ale pie with chips of course & I had chicken tikka,rice,naan & poppudum  :lol:

We have roast leg of lamb.  I found it in my freezer defrost and it is best before the beginning of October, so we can eat that up now over several days.

I think I bought it for Easter, then got waylaid and never cooked it.  Iíve seen it in the freezer of course, but hadnít really registered how long it had been kicking about  ::)

In my freezer it would probably been there a couple of years.    Any food frozen or not, if it looks ok and smells ok, I eat it, Mrs Bouquet.

I do as well Mrs B, but it seemed a waste to spend out on a joint like that and let it go past its date.

It was a best before as is the case with most frozen meat, so it would be safe to eat for a while longer, but the quality deteriorates over time  :)

MoS already knows apple is my favourite, I really should see if there are any in the garden, I've not been out there since spring, I hate to think what a state it's in.

Back to pasta tonight though, I put the chicken leftovers in the slow cooker with tomatoes, peppers and mushrooms last night, it'll pass as a sauce.

My dahl always tastes like lentils in spicy dish water ::)

3 options :

Mash some of the lentils - about half so you have some with bite and the rest as a sauce.  I just get the potato masher out and get in there.

Too much effort?  Chuck some lentils in that will dissolve into a sauce while the more chunky ones cook through.  Split and peeled mung dhal is good for that, but split red lentils will do the same

Too much effort?  This one will probably make you cringe but a tablespoon of Mayflower curry sauce powder will thicken any curry or dhal.  It is Chinese style curry so not authentic in any way, but wonít do anything too awful to the flavour.  It is a lot nicer than lentils in spicy dish water at any rate  :lol:
Title: Re: What's for tea 2022?

Can of tuna is only 28g protein, and you need at least 0.75g protein per Kg of body weight, so depends what else you ate in the day.
But - speaking from experience  ::) the more the merrier if you don't want to feel hungry 
(Eating more protein meant I lost weight without feeling hungry, so I can recommend it, even if you are happy with your weight  *Wouldn't want to offend anyone, would I?*  :nowink:)

Tonight is some of it with a mash top of 50/50 potato and pumpkin from the plot, with a bit of spice added in for good measure  :) There was enough of everything to do 2 additional smaller pies, so OH has one for tea tomorrow while I am at work and 1 has gone into the freezer to feed him another night.

Lentil and chickpea curry - sounds scrummy, whats the recipe please.   Mrs B
It's still a work in progress Mrs B, but the base is the dahl I've been working on  https://chat.allotment-garden.org/index.php?topic=136865.0 for easy lunches from the cupboard.  It's all using standard items with long use by dates so there's no need for me to have remembered to buy anything special. I just added a tin of chickpeas with about 10 minutes left to cook.

I use about 200g of lentils which makes 3 'me sized' servings so you may need to adjust down or at least use a big saucepan ;)

The chicken which didn't defrost in time yesterday spiced up with a few wedges and some cauli/broc cheese.

I tried a shopping order from Trashco today as nobody else appears to be doing the chunky frozen mixed veg which I eat huge amount of any more  :unsure: the mixed veg were so small they could have been floor sweepings :(  I'd go back to keeping individual bags but it takes up so much room in the freezer.

We all have our pet likes and dislikes, don't we?  When I was at school just the sight of sago pudding was enough to make me feel ill, and I must admit to always saying that I hated it, but the fact is I couldn't even bring myself to try it, but I've met loads of people who loved it. Each to his own.  It would be a very boring world if we were all the same and I wouldn't have managed to get my bargain mushrooms because if we all liked them they wouldn't have been there for me to buy.  Every cloud has a silver lining.

Google Tamil Nadu mince.  It is usually made with lamb mince, but beef works.  It is basically onions and meat with a dry roasted spice paste including coconut, but you can easily add veg to it.  That was what our beef and pumpkin curry was last night.

If you don't have desiccated coconut, coconut cream can be dissolved in a little hot water and added in, without too much upset to the final result  :)

Was going to be roast     pork, potatoes and assorted veg BUT we have been having a problem with water on the kitchen floor all week and couldn't work out where it came from, went in the cupboard under the sink and found that was all wet as well.  Emptied it and found the trap joints are loose and when we ran some water to see where the leak was found it was the waste.  Paul tapped it and it sprang out.  Fortunately we have all parts in stock at the shop so tomorrow evening will be a repair.  Decided we can't have a dinner that makes so much washing up, so cooked the pork (eating the crackling while it was hot), so now it's cold  pork, pickles and chips.

Not sure if I'll try mashing those spuds again tonight, I really don't want to make wedges and the sawhedges need eating.

Thereís a lovely cafe there, so depends on whether itís just drinks & cakes on offer there as to what we end up with. I shall be stocking the freezer with meat hopefully.

Day off today, plus managed to get to the plot this morning and come back with a whole bucket of veg, so in honour of that weíve had stir-fry with pork and plot spring onions and greens.

So we assume Paul was okay then.

Deconstructed cottage pie, chunky mixed veg - new bag of spuds which didn't turn to mush. No spoonstanding today. I don't know what they've done to the bisto  best gravy granules but they don't thicken without half a jar being used, I've tried their regular too and they were worse. Might have to try another brand or switch to old school browning and cornflour.
