Potato fritters, bacon and tomatoes for me :)

Cold ham with beetroot gratin and cabbage.  Beetroot was from the clamp and cooked in the pressure cooker first - enough for 3 gratins - first time I have done that and it worked well.  Learning about pressure cooking is my new thing!

Tonight will be more boring - quiche lorraine (last of the Christmas bacon) and coleslaw and the final batch of mince pies to use the rest of the jar in the fridge.  Then that really is Christmas over!   :(  Roll on the spring!  :D

Reduced in the Co op today - packs of 4 chunky pork chops for £2 each, I thought it would be rude not to buy a pack or 2 :)
So for tea I'll have a chop tray-baked with butternut squash, onion, pepper and tomatoes, the others went in the freezer ;)

Gammon joint braised in apple juice with onion, carrot, celery and herbs. 

I served thick slices with potatoes, the veg it was braised with, some extra greens and a sauce of some of the braising liquid thickened with cornflour.  We had both been outside working - OH earning a crust and me in the garden at home, so it went down a treat  :D

Loads left for another meal or two and stock for a soup as a bonus  :)

How do you find the apple juice stock in a soup? I never feel it will ‘go’ so bin it which I always feel such a waste, I stock everything else

I've never tried it before, so I'll let you know.  It doesn't taste like apple particularly - sweetish, but savoury with gammon and herb flavours.  I was thinking of cooking split peas and veg, putting in the stock and blending the soup, then adding in bits of cooked gammon.

Chicken stew that's been cooking away for the last few hours while I changed the oil in the car.

Sawhedge and chips  :tongue2: I also intend to make a half-hearted attempt at looking for mushy pea and beans.

Ham (leftover gammon), egg, chunky chips and broccoli.

Soup is made ready for tomorrow, as I am working late.  I added some frozen casserole veg as well as the shredded gammon after the base was blended and its turned out well - homemade Big Soup, but nicer  :)
