What's for tea 2019?

Maybe something not made from Christmas leftovers!
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

Went to supermarket yesterday (to get slippers for OH, but that is another story!) and cleaned up on cold meats, so tonight will be cold ham, beetroot gratin and cabbage (he is going down the plot, last warmish day ..).  I really am going to have to sort that fridge out today!

Happy New Year to all.  Having got rid of the colds we both had (caught from one of the grandchildren) we are going to have roast lamb.  The first dinner we have had since the middle of last week as we really did not feel like eating before.

Glad you are both better wighty  :)

I had a stupidly long shift on New Years Eve - there was nothing left of it by the time I got home  ::)  A swift sandwich was all I could grab.  Yesterday was going to be roast pork, but I woke up with that hot/cold/aching I'm getting a cold feeling.  After a duvet day I managed pasta with homemade tomato sauce from the freezer.  It must have been happy memories of summer days in the greenhouse surrounded by tomato vines, but I'm fine today, just a bit sniffly  :)

Roast pork is on for later and maybe a pud.  I've got a baked fruit sponge pudding recipe I want to try, plus preserved quince and frozen berries just asking to be used  :D

We are back on the diet kick, so it is pasta at lunchtime to warm us up, and a light dinner of ham and salad (bargain lettuce and bits from the fridge), with wholemeal toast for OH.

Edit : he passed on the toast!  Either he is really getting into this, or is sickening for something ...  :unsure:

The plan was for pasta tonight with some some leftover chicken and pesto, but the weather strongly suggests something covered in spoon standing. Im trying to avoid doing my tax return so the pans are on for mash and mixed veg, I'll nuke the stuffing and cheat with bisto best for the gravy.   ;)

We over did it last night and have suffered for it!(Not drink I would add).   Should have built up to a big dinner.  Tonight we stuck to burgers for Paul and fish fingers for me with chips and peas.  Hopefully we won't have such an uncomfortable evening tonight.

Dry January and diet over already.

Huge rack of ribs smothered in chilli BBQ sauce served with chips, allotment corn on the cob and washed down by a bottle of red. Happy days :)

Tonight is cold beef and leeks in cheese sauce, steamed pots will be offered to OH (see if he accepts).  Might do the odd leaf of cabbage too!  Gotta eat your greens ...  :)

After all the festive and traditional fare, over the last couple of weeks................ I really fancy a curry  :D
I've got lots of veg in the fridge to use up, and some lamb offcuts in the freezer, they can all go into it  :)

I appear to have been struck down with man flu overnight  :ohmy: I'm feeling even more in need of real food than normal.  Pans are on again for mash and mixed veggies and a a quick freezer raid has provided some slow cooked brisket in onion gravy.  It's not exactly chicken soup but needs must  ::)
