There's a lump of gammon in the slowcooker. I'd love to put it with mash and eggs but with only one ageing chicken left I've not had an egg for months  :( ( I refuse to keep chickens and buy eggs). I'm torn between sliced ham and veggie rice or Mac'n'Cheese with shredded ham in.

I will try not still sit here until 10pm thinking about it and end up with a ham sandwich  :nowink:

Cold (bargain) flame grilled sliced turkey with coleslaw, and toast for OH. 

All the talk of gammon on this board has sent me to the freezer to find the hock I knew was in there.  ::)  Now defrosting ready for tomorrow in the slow cooker.  :)

Curry fest  :D

I've been outside all day tidying up and pruning in the garden, so some serious tea was needed.  Dhal from the freezer, sweet potato and cauliflower curry, rice, yogurt and mint, plus some poppadoms.  That's better  :D

Gammon isn't something I buy usually.  I only bought the joint we had on a whim, but it is amazingly frugal and a little goes a long way.  The joint was 1.6kg, it has done 2 meals for us both, made 4 big servings of main meal type soup and the last chunk was in the freezer for another day. 

I've just pulled it out to defrost as we have wizard beans in the freezer to use up and I've found a nice broad bean casserole recipe on the main site.  The plan is to use shredded up gammon instead of the bacon.

I'm planning fruit pruning and mulching on the plot, so a quick but filling meal will be great later today  :D

If you grab a bag of something like this Waitose Soup Mix you can stretch it even further.

Yes, but I keep forgetting to soak it overnight!
Even cooked all day in the slow-cooker some of the peas & beans stay hard. So those only work if you are organised and that's not me, nowadays  ::)   :lol:

Last night was bought steak pie with plot spuds, roasted beetroot (plot grown by a plot neighbour and given to me), plot greens and spoon standing.

Tonight is pork stir-fry, but the only home grown ingredients I can claim are the garlic and chilli pepper.

Put a chicken in the slowcooker this morning, smells lovely but I'm unsure of what to do with it  :wacko:

Roast chicken dinner, chicken and chips or chicken and pasta ....  I'm leaning towards a full chicken dinner but the cba fairy is pushing hard for chicken and pasta.

Have mash and peas/green beans with it, a little less work than the roast, but better for you than the pasta?
I've had sausages, steam-bag mixed veg with wedges :)
